A loft in Soho’s historic West Broadway Arches building at 140 Thompson Street just hit the market asking $2.7 million. The industrial-chic apartment has all the trappings of a quintessential loft: High ceilings, large windows, exposed columns, and an open floorplan—but while those architectural elements can often make spaces feel unwelcoming, this apartment gives off a cozy and lived-in vibe.
A sizable foyer is sandwiched between a home office and a bedroom designed with an elevated sleep platform. Two small steps lead into the cavernous living room, where a wall of windows looks out onto the street. (The apartment is ground-level.)
The open chef’s kitchen sports fancy Viking and Miele appliances and relies on open shelves and just a few sleek cabinets to keep up the loft’s overall contemporary appeal.
An elevated loft space that overlooks the main floor has been transformed into a master bedroom. It’s accessed through a set of stairs in the home office. Alas, the listing doesn’t provide pictures of the bathrooms, but according to the description, they boasts designs by Phillipe Stark.
Other perks include two built-in Murphy beds for guests, a washer/dryer, and eight closets throughout the apartment. The current owners have put in some work transforming the place into the neutral abode it is now, which begins to justify its $1.5 million jump in price since it last sold in 2010. Maintenance for the place runs a steep $2,442/month.
