The authenticity? Built in 1922, Groff Studios is a former fur factory located at 151 West 28th Street in the old-school Flower District between 6th and 7th Avenues. The building’s 16 full-floor 1,800 square-foot lofts have the high ceilings, original brick walls and open spaces loft lovers look for, plus the usual perks like a key-locked elevator and two staircases. Inside this quintessentially Manhattan home you’ll find an open floor plan and 18 enormous windows lining three exposures. And there’s that roof garden…
You’re never far from a view in this window-wrapped co-op, and never far from natural light during daylight hours. The space has been renovated with style, with rich hardwood floors on the diagonal, well-designed built-ins, white-painted ceiling beams and carefully-considered fixtures and finishes.
Another job well done in the design department: An eat-in chef’s kitchen with stainless steel appliances, terra cotta floor tiles, lots of cabinet and counter space and some clever and attractive storage solutions that lend a professional air to the food prep zone. A dining area is just steps away but with enough space and style for both casual and formal occasions.
The apartment is currently configured to have one fantastically huge window-lined master bedroom with the second bedroom being used as an office. Possibilities are many, though, due to the sheer number of windows and exposures at your disposal.
We haven’t forgotten about the roof garden. Saving the best for last, an elegantly-designed staircase and private bulkhead leads up to what the listing calls an “arborist’s dream.” This large landscaped paradise boasts planted specimen trees, built-in planters and seating benches, an irrigation system, custom lighting, a grilling nook, storage and more–and there are plenty of sunny and shady areas to keep your guests happy in almost any weather.
