A vast live/work loft has hit the market in Manhattan for $3.995m – and it comes with 11-ft-high ceilings and floating walls.
The 3,100 sq ft New York property sits in the artists’ quarter, on the border of the Flatiron district and Chelsea, and is housed in a brick co-op dating back to the 1930s. While currently configured as a two-bedroom loft, it is designed for maximum flexibility, featuring internal partition walls that can all be removed to switch up the floor plan.
A large art studio forms the heart of the 60 West 15th Street apartment, which is replete with brick walls, hardwood floors and steel beams. There’s also a ‘floating library cube’ and a formal office tucked at the far end of the sprawling loft.
Towering, raftered ceilings and industrial pipes have been left exposed, exaggerating the height of the home. An enormous north-facing, steel-framed skylight brings light into the living and dining room.
The New York apartment is on the market via Anne B. See of Halstead Property and is a stone’s throw from Union Square and the West Village.
