Avoid the cookie cutter buildings popping up downtown and make this one-of-a-kind PENTHOUSE LOFT in the Lower East Side your home. Spaces like this one do not come up often & in these times this one is even more of a gem. On the top of 175 East 2nd St, built in 1920 and formerly a factory but now a boutique, Pre-War, Elevator Condo building. This loft spans the building's entire width & is stunning. The interior space of over 1500' welcomes lucky visitors with a full wall of South-facing windows, including 8 windows in the living room alone! Double exposures assure constant light, plus 2 gorgeous skylights add to the gallery-like feel. The 11' ceilings have exposed beams & columns, a decorative fire place that could be made to work again & exposed brick walls add to the authenticity & charm of the space, giving it all a warm vibe. An open kitchen with high end appliances and ample counter & cabinet space is perfect for preparing intimate or grand meals. There's a large den area with its own skylight that converts to a second sleeping area or a HOME OFFICE & there's a 1/2 Bath on the west side of the loft which could be expanded to a 2nd Full Bath. The main bedroom is giant with 2 big windows, an en-suite bathroom with its own skylight, & a walk-in closet. And there is another fire place currently covered by a large mirrored wall fixture that could be uncovered & made to work again on the eastern wall in the BR, so there could be 2 working fire places in this loft! The LR could easily accommodate a 2nd BR or even 3BR layout. But the most unique feature by far is the over 1400' of PRIVATE ROOF SPACE, which makes this loft truly magical. Enjoy Southern views down to the Financial District, Western views for sunsets & Northern views all the way to the Chrysler & Met-Life buildings. Bring your architect and design an internal staircase to access your roof, which is irrigated & the perfect retreat from the world. Pets are allowed, W/D are allowed. Extremely close to J/M/F/Z/B/D trains. There are countless options in this very charming neighborhood to eat, drink, shop and relax including Katz's Delicatessen, Russ & Daughters & Essex Market, plus both Whole Foods & Trader Joes are within a 5 minute walk. These sorts of spaces are indeed rare. Please contact me to see this absolute beauty in the sky. Shown by appointment only.
