Description

PRICED TO SELL. Sunny, spacious and sleekly renovated loft at the historic Piano Factory in Hell's Kitchen, the Downtown alternative. Circa 1873, the Piano Factory is truly one of the most distinctive and architecturally interesting loft conversions in all Manhattan.

This rarely available 2 bedroom / 2 full bath 4th floor loft features 10 foot ceilings, custom crown moldings and oak hardwood floors throughout, original tinder support beams and posts and 6 large south facing windows which provide great light and city views in every room. The renovation is a seamless blend of classic architectural features such as custom crown moldings and a stately Roman Doric column in harmony with modern Art Deco style built-in cabinetry and ingeniously placed curved walls which soften the transition between the main living areas.

The welcoming entry foyer features a dramatic curved wall with a built-in bar cabinet that gently ushers you into the spacious living/dining area of the loft. The living and dining areas are perfectly delineated in this great room by the ceiling timber beam and Roman Doric column.

The dining area can easily fit a table that seats 12 and features Art Deco cabinets to store all your dinnerware, and a countertop for serving buffet style.

The generously-sized living area features 3 large windows providing exceptional light and city views and provides ample space for a large sitting area, a work from home area, and even a baby grand piano! It has a built-in cabinet for storage and shelving to prominently display objets d'art.

The renovated chef's kitchen off the entry foyer features stainless appliances, including a Wolf range, Sub-Zero frig, Advantium microwave/convection/broiler oven and a Maytag dishwasher. There is plentiful custom wood cabinetry for storage and generous granite countertop space for food preparation.

The hallway leading to the bedrooms features curved walls which provide both architectural interest and softens the transition from the living to the sleep area.

The generously sized primary bedroom, which can easily accommodate a king-sized bed, features wrap-around floor-to-ceiling custom cabinetry, providing plentiful storage for clothing, and accessories. The vented en-suite bathroom features a spa soaking tub and custom cabinetry.

The second bedroom features a large walk-in closet and is currently configured as a guest bedroom/office with a built-in desk and cabinetry.

Across the hall is a second vented full bath with custom cabinetry.

In addition to all the aforementioned storage space, there are two additional closets off the entry foyer; a coat closet and also an exceptionally huge walk-in closet, providing ample storage for Costco runs and seasonal storage.

Your entry to this exceptional loft really begins from the moment you walk through the cast iron gates of the Piano Factory into the captivating European-style landscaped courtyard of this historic building. Your heart and soul tells you that you've truly 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.

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. The interior courtyard originally served as the factory's horse stables and storage yard.

Today the landscaped courtyard is punctuated by striking original steel catwalks and inviting seating areas. The Piano Factory has frequently been used for movie and television filming because of its photogenic beauty. The building is a well-established, self-managed co-op with a live-in super that permits pets, pied-a-terres and subletting.

Low monthlies of $1,972 make this loft even more compelling.

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. Hudson Yards and the 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/W, S and 7 trains.
