This former warehouse building, constructed in 1915 at 138 Baxter Street, is right in the heart of Little Italy, just a block away from the Italian restaurants lining Mulberry Street. At some point, the seven-story building was converted into a six-unit apartment building, and this one is now on the rental market for $7,250 a month. It’s a two-bedroom apartment with super high 14-foot ceilings, big windows and a nice open living, dining and kitchen area–it spans 1,200 square feet total. It’s got all the loft bases covered, with some fun and funky interior decoration added on top. There have also been some sleek renovations in the kitchen and bathrooms.
The building’s original exposed brick has been whitewashed to brighten up the apartment. The current design takes advantage of all the available wall space with artwork (including a deer bust!) and tall bookshelves. Below those high ceilings are the original maple wood floors.
There’s enough space in the living room to carve out a little office area, right next to the glorious 10-foot-tall windows and underneath all the bookshelves.
The dining area is smack dab in the middle of the open kitchen, with that red table standing out as a statement piece in the apartment. The kitchen’s been upgraded with stainless steel appliances, new counter tops and a dishwasher.
Unfortunately, you’re not getting all that space in the living area without sacrificing some from the bedroom. One of the bedrooms looks like a glorified closet, although there’s at least room for a dresser, not to mention stairs that lead from the bedroom directly up to a bathroom. The second bedroom offers more space, as well as a seal of approval from the apartment cat.
A long hallway connects the “great room” of the apartment to the smaller bedrooms. And hey, we’ll take a washer and dryer with our rental! A nice perk in a nice loft.
