Most New Yorkers are used to squeezing into small quarters, but few of those spaces boast dramatic ceilings like this beautiful little home at 67 East 11th Street in Greenwich Village. Measuring approximately 950-square-feet, this duplex loft is perfect for a single or for a no fuss no muss couple that wants to live minimally. And unlike the other tiny spaces of Manhattan, this loft is a light-filled abode with 10-foot tall windows and southern exposures that ensure every day will be a sunny one in the village.
The loft is located in the heart of the village within a converted seven-story cast iron building erected in 1868. The building is one of many commercial structures in the neighborhood that saw a conversion into luxury apartments over the years. This particular address was once home to the James McCreery Dry Goods Store back in the late 19th century.
The apartment itself is situated on the third floor and is split over two levels with a lofted area of 220-square-feet reserved as a sleeping area and a window cutout overlooking the main space. The lofted floor also has a sizable 13-foot by 5.5-foot walk in closet — perfect for holding all the lovely boutique wares and vintage treasures found in the neighborhood.
Below is a bright and airy living room featuring incredible 16-foot ceilings, a fully exposed brick wall and an industrial staircase. There is also a “spa-quality” bathroom and an open gourmet kitchen with enough room left over for hosting small dinner parties.
The lucky buyer of this unit will also have access to a gorgeous roof deck, and when they feel like going out, they can just immerse themselves in the bustling scene that has developed around Grace Episcopal Church just across the way, or head on over to nearby Union Square Park.
