Sold for $1,230,000

Truly one of the City's great spaces. This home is an upscale contemporary with original 19th century loft character, designed for living in the 21st Century. Its unexpected spatial generosity and contrasting interior materials combine to make a remarkable setting for living, working and entertaining. 2-4 bedroom, 2 bath full floor loft residence in a historic, boutique condominium building. 11.5' ceilings, spectacular character, and fine finishes on a serene, tree-lined Old City Block. 1-car, gated on-site PARKING. The secure elevator opens directly and dramatically into this 3,755 square foot home, which includes the entire light-filled 2nd Floor of this old factory (c. 1895). Designed by renowned architect, Jorge Lovera, this space offers 2 full bedrooms; a guest room/office/studio (that could easily be a large, delineated bedroom); and another large office/den that could readily be turned into a 4th spacious bedroom. A private balcony. 6.5' high windows on 3 exposures. Charming views. And living space that is so pliable it works for huge open entertainment; or as more intimate (yet roomy) spaces, easily crafted into separate areas for a living room, sitting room, family room, office and dining room. And all this opens to a custom kitchen, with poured concrete counter-tops, sink and eating bar, plus a breakfast area. Enjoy the purposeful contrasts of materials, from the radiantly-heated concrete floors to the original wood ceiling with 120 year old beams & cast iron connection supports; the fireplace that contrasts heavy steel plates (designed & crafted in Italy) with sandstone & rough granite; 2" thick & deep slate windowsills; custom maple & sycamore cabinetry, shelving, and 11' sliding doors; exposed brick, ductwork, and beams (wood & iron); the unexpected pair of antique hand-carved wooden doors. The quality & scope of the materials is just seductive. Wonderful art exhibition space; however, the intrinsic quality of the home is rich enough to support itself elegantly, with little art at all. At either end of the spectrum or anywhere in between--it just works. Excellent storage. High-end finishes. Superb location, at the most quiet intersection of cobblestoned Mascher & Cuthbert Streets, yet within blocks of so many great restaurants, coffee shops, & the Ritz Movie Theaters. 97 Walkscore. Notes: 2-zone AC. 2-zone radiant heat concrete floors. Efficient & comfortable. Professionally managed, pet friendly building. Great closets. Oversize laundry room.
