Welcome back to The Six Digit Club, in which we take a look at a newish-to-market listing priced under $1 million, because nice things sometimes come in small packages. Send nominations to the tipline.
Sleeping lofts aren’t an uncommon feature in New York City apartments, but the one in this Turtle Bay studio, asking $825,000, is particularly unusual.
Instead of what you typically find with a loft bed situation—creaky old stairs leading to a platform big enough to accommodate a mattress and little else, with barely enough room between you and the ceiling to sit up straight—this place has a custom one crafted from glass and steel, measuring a generous 10x14 feet and with its own adjacent storage space. A floating staircase connects the bed to the rest of the apartment; it’s not a loft you’ll have to worry about falling out of if you roll over too much in your sleep. (The kitchen is still shoehorned below the loft, alas.)
The rest of the studio has similarly industrial-inspired details: The floors are made of polished concrete, the kitchen island and cabinets were custom-designed, and the bathroom is outfitted in dramatic black tiles and wood shelves. It’s not a space for everyone, but if you’re looking for “a real show-stopper” (per the brokerbabble), it might be for you.
The apartment is listed with Gina M. Kuhlenkamp at Sotheby’s International Realty, and maintenance comes in $1,488/month.
