Palatial loft in former Tribeca dairy factory wants $10.9M

New, 1 comment

The former vault is now the wine room

Tribeca is home to plenty of slick new developments, but this vintage four-bedroom loft is not among them. Built in 1904, the building was once the headquarters for the Borden Dairy Company, and though it was converted to condos in 1988, the place still has plenty of original character.

Given that the apartment spans the entire floor, space is not a problem here. The “elegant great room” lives up to its name, with soaring ceilings and oversized windows; the eat-in kitchen is likewise “massive,” though measurements are not given; and all four bedrooms have bathrooms en-suite.

But while the size is nice, it’s the details that make the place, from the Corinthian pillars and elaborate wood-carved fireplace in the living room, to the stately crown molding in the master suite. The most intriguing original perk, though, is the original Borden Dairy Company vault, which has since been converted into a “wine room.”

Not that the $10.9 million residence is exactly short on modern amenities. The home comes with central A/C, a washer/dryer, and a keyed elevator opening into a private foyer.
