An architect designed this minimalist West Village loft, inserting a custom built-in that divides the space, with a caramel-coloured couch on one side and a bed on the other.
Apartment 7k is located on the top floor of 720 Greenwich Street, at the heart of the sought-after Manhattan neighbourhood. The ten-stored red brick building dates from 1898 and was converted into a cooperative in 1989, with 157 units. This one was originally a one-bedroom that’s been turned into an open-concept layout with a floating ‘box’ at the centre, inset with the custom-made sofa.
In terms of the quintessential loft look, the pad ticks all the boxes thanks to barrel-vaulted ceilings and bleached hardwood floors, exposed brick and eight-pane windows that draw in a lot of light – further amplified by the all-white colour palette. The bathroom and kitchen have also been fully renovated, with Danish-style cabinets, and there’s a separate, custom walk-in closet.
Jack Elliot Heard of Compass is listing the West Village property for $925,000.
As an added draw, 720 Greenwich has a pretty spacious communal rooftop garden with views towards the Hudson River, two blocks away. There’s also bike storage and laundry on every floor, and the building is a short stroll from the Meatpacking District.
