Architecturally curated high-ceiling loft with 3 bedrooms plus a sleep loft, 3 full baths & even a 300SF storage attic just blocks from hot Hudson Yards! Located on the top floor of the historic Piano Factory, this spacious loft with nearly 14 foot ceilings and original tinder support beams and posts circa 1860, features oversized windows that run its 52 feet of south facing frontage, providing great light and open city views in every room. Low monthlies of $2,684 make this loft of nearly 1,900 SF even more compelling.
Arguably the most coveted loft in the Piano Factory, this exquisite loft was designed & renovated by the principals of Rietveld Architects, who brought it to its current Architectural Digest level.
An entry foyer leads to the living/dining area, nearly 20 feet wide & nearly 36 feet in length. The ceiling rises from 12 1/2 feet in the dining area to nearly 14 feet at the windowed wall (original exposed brick could be exposed on this windowed wall).
The open & spacious chef's kitchen will impress the most discerning cook. It features: a 48 Thermador range with a double oven, 4 burners, a charcoal grill & griddle, and a Thermador hood that vents to the outside; an oversized Sub-Zero refrigerator; a Bosche dishwasher; a double sink & ample granite counter prep space that extends into a breakfast bar that comfortably seats 4.
The dining area of the loft, which can easily accommodate a table to seat up to 12 people, opens up to the dramatic and spacious living room area, which features custom recessed built-in bookshelves, and can easily accommodate several large pieces of furniture for ample seating and entertainment, yet still provide ample room to spare for either additional seating furniture or plenty of mix and mingle room for large entertainment gatherings.
In the living room area is an architecturally intriguing yet discrete stairway that leads to the unexpected; a cozy sleep loft for overnight guests.
Off the living area and past the open kitchen is the hallway leading to the bedrooms. Here, too, the ordinary has been cleverly transformed into the extraordinary. The bedroom doors have been ingeniously recessed so when they are open, they neither jut out into the hallway nor into the bedrooms, thereby wasting precious space and breaking their architecturally integrated form and function; rather they seamlessly blend into the recessed entryways of the first two bedrooms allowing the southern light from the bedrooms to cascade out into the hallway.
These two generously-sized bedrooms each feature tall ceilings, plentiful closets and two oversized southern exposure windows, bathing them both with great natural light all day. The sleep loft off the living room is above the first of the two bedrooms, yet because of the lofts overall tall ceilings, the ceiling height in the first bedroom is still a lofty 9 feet tall. The ceiling height in the second bed reaches 14 feet. Original brickwork could be exposed in both bedrooms on the windowed wall.
A full marble bath across the hall from the second bedroom serves these two bedrooms, as well as a second full marble bath off the entry foyer with a large glass enclosed shower that also serves as a guest bathroom. A laundry area with a full-sized washer and dryer and storage is also located outside of the bathroom across the hall from the second bedroom.
At the end of the hallway is the entrance to the master bedroom suite, which is outfitted with a stunning etched and frosted transom window, clearly defining this suite to be the master chamber; the most special bedroom of the loft. Its the largest bedroom of the loft, with room for a sitting area, and features extra-plentiful closets, ceiling heights that reach 14 feet, two oversized southern exposure windows and a sumptuous en-suite marble bath with two sinks and a luxurious and inviting claw-foot soaking tub outfitted with a shower fixture.
Original brickwork could be exposed on both the windowed wall and the eastern wall in the master; exposure of brick on the eastern wall would add approximately 6 inches to the width of this room.
In addition to all of the above, this very special loft has three additional features rarely found in any loft; an attic loft space of approximately 300SF and height of approximately 3 feet with a retractable pull-down stairway above all 3 bathrooms. There is another 20SF attic loft space in the sleep loft area.
Lastly, it features a 20SF private bike storage room accessible from the building hallway that conveys with the loft, located just a few feet away from the entrance to the loft to store items such as bicycles or wet items that you might not want to bring into the loft.
Dating back to the late 1800s, The Piano Factory building is a loft-conversion on the site of the former Wessell, Nickel & Gross Company, a piano works and soundboard factory. Today, the building is a well-established, self-managed co-op with very low monthlies, allowing pets, pied-à-terres and subletting. And yes, even pianos!
At the entry, a Romanesque Revival archway leads you to the building's iconic European style landscaped courtyard, at once leafy yet beautifully industrial. Originally serving as the factory's storage yard, today the brick-lined outdoor spaces are punctuated by striking original steel catwalks and inviting leafy seating areas. The Piano Factory complex has frequently been used for movie and television filming because of its photogenic beauty.
