There’s nothing but light coming into this three-bedroom loft co-op at Ruggles House, a Gramercy Park building located at 112 East 19th Street. Ruggles House was built in 1913 as an industrial loft building with high ceilings and huge windows. When it was converted into a residential building, only two apartments were put on each of the 12 floors. The result at this particular unit is a sprawling floor plan with those old industrial interior details. It is currently on the market for $3.5 million.
This loft apartment is accessed by private, keyed elevator access. Upon exiting the elevator into the apartment, you’re greeted by large windows dominating 45 feet of the south end of the apartment. The wall of windows brings in incredible light and offers uninterrupted views out into Manhattan. Even more windows bring in light from three different exposures.
Those big windows are coupled with high ceilings, columns and wood floors. Even the open kitchen and dining room have a lofty, huge feel. While the listing doesn’t give square footage, it’s a big floor plate that includes three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The listing also mentions that there’s a private laundry room.
The master bedroom is sectioned off by screens, which only lend to the bright, minimalist vibe of the apartment. In this space, the building’s industrial bones are the star of the show, and remain uninterrupted by any flashy interior design.
Building residents share a landscaped roof deck. The views from here are great, considering that Ruggles House rises taller than many of the surrounding residential properties. It’s also located right in the heart of Gramercy Park, at 19th Street and Irving Place. The listing, however, doesn’t say if the apartment comes with a key to the infamous private park.
