Pun intended, this open-plan penthouse loft is certainly no slum–it sits atop a genuine restored 1840s ship house at 115 South Street in lower Manhattan’s Seaport District. Asking $8,495 a month, the character-filled top-floor space is blessed with 14-foot-high ceilings, exposed timber joists, and whitewashed brick, with stunning views of the harbor and river. It’s four flights up, says the listing, but “worth every step.”

The airy loft’s open kitchen is a charming mix of gleaming steel and rustic wood with great lighting and pops of color. A cozy office nook and a fabulous ceiling-height bookshelf comprise a private corner, with plenty of entertaining space nearby.

The apartment’s 1840 roots have been preserved in the form of original details like wood floors, exposed brick and beam columns. All-day sunlight is a given on the top floor, but it’s hard to beat those views.

Two bright, spacious bedrooms face away from the street; each bedroom gets its own WC, with a full bath–complete with antique claw-foot tub/shower–in between them. In addition to custom design additions like the so-appropriate shiplap paneling, a tiled decorative fireplace and built-in storage, there’s the added convenience of a Bosch washer/dryer.
