Though there’s no description accompanying the listing for this Soho loft, it has all the hallmarks of this particular type of New York City apartment: wide open spaces, high ceilings, some industrial touches (exposed brick, for one), and the like. But some warmer touches, like built-in bookshelves and a brick fireplace, keep it from feeling too sterile.
And the floorplan itself is a bit weird, with two common spaces—a living room and home office—bookending the place, and a longer gallery in the middle. The oddly-shaped bedroom comes with two walk-in closets, and there’s additional storage space next to the living room.
Still, if a quirky layout doesn’t bother you, it’s plenty workable—the current owner has used bright colors and mod furniture to create an inviting space—and the price is $1.75 million. It’s a lot for what’s essentially a very large one-bedroom, sure, but the ways the space could be re-envisioned are numerous…which is something.
