Stunning, sun-drenched 5500+ sf. (est.) luxury top (third) floor loft overlooking The Rail Park; breathtaking, sweeping, panoramic 60 ft. x 9.5 ft. east, south, and southwest views of the city skyline (and sky!), park, and streetscape; hundreds of feet of industrial skylights; the sunshine and moonlight pours into this purpose-built, one-of-a-kind residence. This is a rare opportunity. Enter through a discreet garage door adjacent to the rail park to three deeded parking spaces mere steps from your own spacious, private elevator (8000 lb capacity), recently restored and upgraded, which opens directly to the loft, allowing you to take your groceries, your bicycle, or even your motorcycle right into the loft -- don’t worry, there’s plenty of room. The main level features a wide-open 60 ft. x 50 ft. floor plan with 27-foot industrial “sawtooth” ceilings and skylights, massive south and west facing windows with jaw-dropping views, a private balcony “caffè” with operable 10-ft. tall window doors, storage/workshop area, theatre/media room with adjacent off-season clothing closet, den, full bathroom featuring Waterworks fixtures and an extraordinary chef's kitchen. The kitchen is a chef’s and home entertainer’s dream come true. A scene-stealing, 20-ft. soapstone island provides front row seating for your guests as you cook on top-of-the-line appliances including: 2 Waterworks farmhouse sinks & fixtures, 2 Bosch dishwashers, a 48" Sub-Zero Pro refrigerator with glass door, a 48" Wolf dual fuel cooking range, custom mahogany cabinets and a custom, walk-in glass wine closet for more than 150 bottles of wine. At the touch of a button, Lutron control systems operate the shades and lights. Museum quality track lighting, along with vintage and antique lighting (including original fixtures from the New York Subway), are featured throughout the loft. Two spacious en-suite bedrooms located on the wood mezzanine feature custom closets and clothes hanging, large, bright bathrooms featuring Waterworks "rain" showers, and Waterworks freestanding cast iron bathtubs. The bedrooms adjoin a nest like alcove for your library, reading, conversation, or drinking in the views. Other features include radiant floor heating on main level and all bathrooms, six zone air conditioning and heating, polished concrete floors on main level and bathrooms, ebonized wood floors on upper level, a 26-foot Sapele wood bench made from one piece of wood, video surveillance, and a double storage unit in the common hallway on same level. Originally two units, this labor of love was painstakingly renovated and converted into a captivating, one-of-a-kind residence. All custom steel, including grand staircase and custom bedroom wardrobes, were created by local artist Bill Curran Designs. Close to the subway and convenient to many attractions of the city! This special Loft residence is unlike anything you’ve ever seen. It is truly in a category of one.
