One of the fun things about New York City’s architecture is how hidden its history can be. Take for example 130 Beekman Street in the South Street Seaport Historic District. The five-story building was actually built in 1798, but it’s undergone several renovations over the years, and its condo units are completely modern. Just listed for $3,995,000 is the building’s crown jewel, a three-bedroom, top-floor loft with two beautiful outdoor spaces.

The interior is 2,035 square feet and has three bedrooms and three bathrooms. Throughout you’ll find Belgian Oak flooring, built-in speaker systems, and Alexa controls. The huge living/dining room offers over 550 square feet of entertaining space, a full wall of closets, and access to the lower terrace through floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors.

This outdoor space has great downtown views, a motorized retractable canopy, and a shed that’s been turned into a fun play room.

Back inside, the kitchen has sleek stainless steel counters and cabinetry to match the appliances.

A separate wing of this lower level includes two bedrooms, one of which has an en-suite bathroom. The other bedroom has a built-in Murphy bed and a motorized projection screen and ceiling projector. There’s another full bathroom, complete with a steam shower, in the hall, along with a washer/dryer closet.

The staircase that leads upstairs is a bit of an art piece in its own right. It’s made of white-powder coated steel and open wood treads.

The second level holds the master suite, which has a walk-in closet with barn doors and an en-suite bathroom. It also has sensor lighting, a framed TV, and customized window treatments.

The master opens onto the other terrace that has beautiful eastern and northern exposures and views of both the Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridges.

The building sits on the corner of Beekman and Water Streets, both lovely cobblestone streets. It’s right in the middle of the historic district and just a few blocks from Pier 17. It was built in the late 18th-century as a manufacturing building for ship sails and lines for the nearby port. It was converted to condominiums in 2001
