Spacious and gracious loft with "wow" factor at the historic Piano Factory. This rarely available and highly coveted unit features a ballroom-like 40' x 16' corner double-exposure living room with a balcony that overlooks the enchanting landscaped interior courtyard of this circa 1888 historic building.

From the moment you walk through the cast iron gates of the Piano Factory into the captivating landscaped courtyard of this historic building, your heart and soul tells you that you've entered a very unique and special place, unlike any place you've ever seen before. It is truly one of the most distinctive and architecturally interesting loft conversions in all Manhattan.

Upon entering Loft # 2DN, you'll be further impressed by the uniqueness and grandness of the Piano Factory. The generously proportioned living room, perfect for entertaining, easily accommodates a dining area, work-from-home office area and two sitting areas, and features five oversized windows overlooking the landscaped courtyard and the rich architectural details of the building. At the far end of the rich hardwood floors of the living room are French doors leading to a southern exposure balcony, which also overlooks the spellbinding courtyard.

Off the living room is a well-proportioned kitchen with an efficient layout. Down the hall at the other end of the loft is a full bath and a huge bedroom that easily accommodates a king-sized bed and features an en-suite half-bath, a wall of closets and city windows.

Dating back to the late 1800's, the Piano Factory is a loft-conversion on the site of the former Wessell, Nickel & Gross Company, a piano works and soundboard manufacturer. Today, the building is a well-established, self-managed co-op with very low monthlies, allowing pets, pied-a-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 horse stables and 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 on a charming tree-lined block 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.
