35 Wooster Street, cool listings, soho, lofts, prewar, roof deck, outdoor space, roof garden

It doesn’t get much more Soho than this rare (in this century) live/work-legal penthouse at 35 Wooster Street, in one of the neighborhood’s most iconic buildings–not least of all due to the fact that the popular art institution and gallery The Drawing Center anchors the building as the street-level tenant on landmarked Wooster Street. This beautifully-preserved pre-war cast-iron three-bedroom loft has the typical open layout, tons of detail and character (including high ceilings, a fireplace and amazing skylights), and plenty of light.

When you tell them you live in a loft, this sprawling specimen is pretty much what you’d hope to be describing. For a mere $7,500 a month, this newly-renovated picture of loft living at 6 Varick Street (known for its authentic-but-updated lofts), where Tribeca is arguably at its most Tribecan–if not its most quiet–even comes with art supplies, or at least a place to store them.

257 Berry Street, Williamsburg, townhouse, modern townhouse, art studio, garage, curb cut, cool listing, brooklyn townhouse for sale

6sqft previously featured this unusual property at 257 Berry Street, in the heart of trendy Williamsburg two blocks from the waterfront, when it was being offered as a $12,000/month rental. Now, just 14 months later, the glassy townhouse—whose exterior more resembles the neighborhood’s ubiquitous new construction apartments—is on the market for $4.5 million. Though it may look nondescript-contemporary, the five-story single-family home packs a few impressive surprises, including an adjacent two-story art studio with direct street access and a loading dock.

Cool Listings, Gramercy Park, Historic Homes

A block from Gramercy Park, 150 East 22nd Street lies just outside the borders of the Gramercy Park Historic District, but the property’s owners have preserved and restored one of the most substantial carriage houses still in existence in the coveted neighborhood. The original carriage house, commissioned by one Miss E.L. Breese, a prominent New York socialite known for her rare (for the time) level of independence, was constructed in the Neo-Flemish style in 1893. It now functions as a private garage for the home, its uniquely decorative façade enveloping the front of a thoroughly modern five-story townhouse–on the market for $16.8 million–that spans nearly 7,000 square feet and boasts an elevator, six bedrooms and six terraces including an amazing rooftop paradise.

Tribeca artists’ mecca Pearl Paint–the 80-year-old art supply retailer at 308 Canal Street–closed just over two years ago, and in May, Trans World Equities filed permits to convert one of the buildings into four “bespoke full-floor lofts” and build a two-story addition above the 150-year-old cast-iron structure, now going by 42 Lispenard Street. Two are already in contract, but the newly-listed penthouse awaits, with a prospective winter 2016 occupancy date.

Cool Listings, Upper West Side 

316 West 90th Street, cool listings, Upper East Side, co-op, duplex, townhouse, brownstone, outdoor space, roof deck, roofdeck, roof garden, UWS

According to the listing, this brownstone duplex at 316 West 90th Street on the Upper West Side is “a Tuscan villa in the warmer months and a romantic Swiss chalet in the winter.” That sounds like a pretty tall order for a two-bedroom co-op, even for $1.8 million. But upon closer inspection, three toasty fireplaces definitely have fall and winter dialed in, and two decidedly Tuscan villa-esque decks await once al fresco season arrives.
