19th-century Tribeca loft with a contemporary renovation seeks $3.7M

New, 2 comments

But some of its original details, including the ceilings and windows, remain

It’ll likely come as no surprise that this modern Tribeca loft, which just hit the market asking $3.7 million, is the home of two design bigwigs. The sellers are RAAD Studio’s James Ramsey (also known as one of the co-founders of the Lowline) and his wife, Skylight Studios founder Jennifer Blumin.

Ramsey’s firm renovated the two-bedroom loft, located within a 19th-century building, and attempted to keep as much of its vintage character as possible. When Curbed toured the space in 2015 as part of Dwell magazine’s Dwell on Design New York, Ramsey said that it was “important to treat as much of the historical shell that remained intact with reverence.”

That’s evident in the home’s mix of modern design—a completely redone kitchen and bathroom, a gas fireplace in the living room, and customized shelving—and vintage touches, including exposed beams and the loft’s original ceilings and windows.

The revamped space has two bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms, a “luxuriously appointed” master bathroom with a steam shower, and other lovely accoutrement.
