Description



ORIGINAL ARCHITECTURAL DETAILS - INDUSTRIAL DOWNTOWN HOME / LOW MAINTENANCE. This open airy corner home is located in the historic Morse Building, featuring a great layout and flow with original architectural details. Enter the foyer and gallery, which unfolds into the expansive (29’ X 22’9") living and dining areas, open kitchen with mobile prep island, and built-in dining banquette with a clever under bench storage system; perfect for entertaining, nesting, and working from home.

The main bedroom (16’ X 8’10") has two windows, a dressing area, and an expansive walk-in closet (9’ X 8’). The 2nd sleep area is up the floating stairs and overlooks the living space. There are two spa-like bathrooms; the main spacious windowed bathroom has a double vanity with under counter storage, large walk-in shower, and a laundry closet with the apartment’s own washer and dryer.

The second full size bathroom has a deep soaking bathtub and marble flooring. The apartment has dramatic 14’4" barrel vaulted tin ceilings, arched brick doorways, and exposed brick walls, hardwood floors, intricate moldings, casement interior windows (and bedroom door). Nine arched windows allow for southern and western light, and street views to the Beekman Hotel, and the Woolworth Building.

There is overhead ceiling fans and lighting, floor-to-ceiling book shelves, a proper foyer and coat closet, and an overhead storage compartment (7’2’ X 7’) accessible by a ladder. The low monthly maintenance is up to $10,000 tax deductible annually, and includes a full-time superintendent, gas, water, and radiator heat. There are window air conditioners, and common area laundry facilities on the 2nd floor of the building.

This landmark cooperative building is pet friendly, and has a newly restored old world mosaic tiled lobby, a state-of-the-art video intercom system, and an expansive nicely landscaped common roof deck with panoramic city views. The apartment is approximately 1,560 gross square feet, including the elevated home office and storage compartment.

Once the tallest building in New York City, the Morse Building built in 1880 has just 39 units, 3 apartments per floor, and is located in the vibrant Financial District, adjacent to City Hall Park and Tribeca. The American Vitagraph Company was among the early tenants of the building, where in 1898 the creation of one of the first motion pictures took place on the roof.
