This sunny, corner 2-bedroom, 1 ½ bath loft with 9 oversized windows and nearly 10-foot ceilings represents a rare opportunity to buy a home in Hell's Kitchen's historic Piano Factory, one of the most distinctive loft conversions in all of Manhattan. Set on a quiet, tree-lined block just minutes from the heart of Midtown, the Piano Factory is an enchanting private enclave with a magnificent interior courtyard filled with landscaped greenery and multiple shady seating areas.
The loft features a large corner, double exposure open-plan living/dining space which is sun-filled from sunrise to sunset, thanks to 4 oversized windows with eastern and southern exposures. The English-style windowed kitchen opens onto the living/dining space. The large master bedroom has an en-suite bath, a wall of closets and two oversized windows with eastern exposure which overlook a serene garden. The second bedroom is set on the opposite side of the loft for optimum privacy. A second full bath could be added, and a washer/dryer is permitted. The flexible layout could be reconfigured to best suit your needs, so bring your architect to create the loft of your dreams! (See attached alternative floor plans for conceptual purposes. Any alterations would require coop board approval.) Please note: bedrooms are virtually staged.
Dating to the late 1800s, The Piano Factory is a loft-conversion on the site of the Wessell, Nickel & Gross Company, a piano works factory. Today, the building is a well-established, self-managed co-op with very low monthlies, allowing pets, pied—terres and subletting. At the entry, a Romanesque Revival archway leads you to the building's iconic European style courtyard, at once leafy and beautifully industrial. Originally serving as the factory's storage yard, today the brick-lined outdoor spaces are punctuated by striking original steel catwalks, leafy plantings and inviting seating areas. The Piano Factory complex has frequently been used for movie and television filming because of its photogenic beauty.
Located in the heart of vibrant Hell's Kitchen, this home is at the center of quintessential New York living, just steps from the Theater District and the heart of Midtown. The amazing Hudson Yards and Brookfield Manhattan West developments to the south and Columbus Circle shops and Whole Foods to the north provide premier shopping, dining and entertainment, while the High Line and Hudson River Greenway and nearby Central Park provide glorious outdoor space. The eclectic restaurant scene of 9th Avenue is just around the corner and legendary Restaurant Row is a block away. Transportation is unbeatable with Port Authority and Times Square providing immediate access to A/C/E, 1/2/3, N/Q/R, S and 7 trains.
