Sleek minimalist design and expansive living space define this light-filled, meticulously renovated three-bedroom, two-bathroom duplex loft in a historic Flatiron cooperative.
Arrive on the lower level, where deep-stained hardwood floors, soaring 18-foot-tall ceilings and 10-foot windows create a breathtaking first impression. In the foyer, large closets and a chic full bathroom with matte black fixtures allow for hand-washing and stowing belongings immediately upon entry. Ahead, the stunning great room invites lavish entertaining alongside designer lighting and painted brick. The snow-white open kitchen gleams with a wide breakfast bar, abundant lacquer cabinetry, stone countertops and an army of upscale appliances, including a Sub-Zero refrigerator, Viking range and a Miele microwave, a dishwasher and a KitchenAid wine refrigerator. Near the entry, a large windowed den acts as the perfect home office, and a laundry closet with an in-unit Miele washer-dryer completes the lower level.
Upstairs, two bedrooms boast rows of artfully concealed closets and bright windows overlooking the beautiful great room. An additional third bedroom and a full bathroom on this level is trimmed in marble, penny tile and contemporary fixtures. An upstairs entry, video intercom, and Nest thermostat add comfort and convenience to this one-of-a-kind Flatiron loft.
