One of a lovely row of classic buildings at the crossroads of the Village and Soho, 196 Sixth Avenue, built in 1893, is a former police precinct with gorgeous tall arched windows overlooking newly-renovated Father Fagan Park. This loft-style one-bedroom duplex co-op, asking $1.1 million, comprises part of the building’s main floor–which explains the soaring 14-foot ceilings–and the ground floor below.
This unique Manhattan space spans 943 square feet. The main floor gets lots of light that’s reflected on crisp, white walls. Arched windows with classic shutters feel both charming and contemporary.
A large open kitchen contains everything you’d need to entertain or feed your inner circle. On this main level is the apartment’s full bath.
Down a wrought-iron spiral staircase is a large, nearly subterranean bedroom with a large closet. Down here there’s a half bath. Whatever the layout and location within the building may lack in convenience and being above ground may well be offset by the sense of privacy they afford. Located within the Sullivan-Thompson Historic District, this architecturally interesting building offers an elevator and common laundry facilities in the basement.
