Description

Just Listed! Rare opportunity to own and occupy a mid-sized historic loft home with grand-scale proportions, respectfully-preserved classic loft-era details, and a spacious quiet setting which easily accommodates modern comforts alongside creative living. As SoHo's premier Cast-Iron Artist's Loft building, 138 Grand Street is supremely well located (Crosby + Grand), features spectacularly striking architecture, and is largely owner-occupied by accomplished working creatives.

The few local buildings which retain these authentic elements possess a certain sense of peace, character, and solid quality of life simply not found in newer neighbors. Truly something special. For those who appreciate the wonderful qualities and nostalgic architecture of such homes and communities, this incredible loft and building offer an uncommon opportunity to step back in time.

Entering 138 Grand St.

you will find well-maintained original industrial features and soaring ceiling heights - - take the (colossal) elevator to the 3rd floor, and just down a perfectly creaky hallway you will find this remarkable home. Enter 3EM into a long gallery hallway, perfect for easing in from NYC's street-activity hang your coats, hats, and choice artwork. Turn the corner at the end of the hallway to get a true sense of the impressive scale of this home.

Passing the massive bathroom (with well-kept original tiling and original full-sized claw-foot tub, Kohler and Symmons fixtures, pentagon-pattern floor tiling and high ceilings) and the long row of conveniently built-in closets brings you to the main great room. In addition to plenty of wide-open space, this room features soaring 12.5' high ceilings, a beautiful exposed brick wall, original hardwood flooring, and 3 gorgeous original (9' tall) factory windows facing quiet sunlit courtyard and sky/tree-tops. This area easily accommodates an (adult-sized) dining area, full living-room arrangement, reading nook/home office, and all of your art and books with room to spare.

The kitchen is long and open, and offers endless counter space and smart storage, classic double sink, a 36" Imperial gas stove, Miele Furtura D/W, a vented W/D, full-sized Whirlpool refrigerator, beautiful oversized pendant lighting, and a built-in casual breakfast nook. The spacious bedroom (not structural) is an interior room though has open exposure to one of the massive windows through glass-paned doors + overhead transom, a large ceiling fan, and gets just the right amount of light for comfortable rest. This very special loft home also features an incredible amount of storage throughout, dimmable soft globe lighting, over-window mounted A/C (C/A/C possible), and is quiet, private, and has wonderful sunlight.

In this peaceful home you can hear birds, watch snow collect on the trees in winter, and enjoy changing foliage throughout the seasons in a comfortable historic loft setting.

Nestled at the corner of cobblestoned Crosby/Grand Streets at the crossroads of Soho and Nolita,138 Grand Street enjoys the highest caliber of standards and design elements Cast-Iron Loft Architecture has to offer. Built in 1869, this magnificent building consists of 17 dramatic lofts with church-like proportions (in the homes + common areas), soaring ceilings and preserved historic materials throughout, a massive key-locked elevator, a spectacular mansard roof and iron-crested cupola, and significant artistic and architectural provenance. Well-managed, quiet and peaceful, superb location.
