This unique, oversized two-bedroom loft represents a rare opportunity to buy a home in Hellís Kitchenís historic Piano Factory, one of the most distinctive loft conversions in all of Manhattan, an enchanting private enclave set on a quiet, tree-lined block just minutes from the heart of Midtown. Historic details are preserved throughout this sprawling apartmentóencompassing 2 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, a large open-plan living/dining space and a sizable home office. Set on the ground floor, the unit is just steps from the complexís piŤce de rťsistance: a magnificent interior courtyard filled with landscaped greenery and multiple shady seating areas.
Built for the Wessell, Nickel & Gross Company piano parts manufacturer in 1874 and converted into coops in 1982, this one-of-a-kind complex is widely admired for its charming brick faÁade and meticulously restored 19th-century details. Beneath a dramatic brick archway, the buildingís iron gated entryway leads into the beautiful European-like courtyard. The privacy afforded by this serene urban oasis is an extremely rare find anywhere in Manhattan, and with easy access from the ground-floor apartment, itís almost as if you have your own private garden.
Inside the apartment, an entry foyer flows into the spacious open-plan living area, which encompasses both a 31-foot-long living room and a large dining alcove adjacent to the open cookís kitchen. The living room features wide plank wood floors and an original timber beam supported by ornately designed cast iron columns. The kitchen is outfitted with maple wood cabinetry, a generous pantry and ceramic tiled floor, and opens onto the large dining space, which is lined with graceful half-wall wainscoting. The large master bedroom has an en-suite bath, while the second bedroom, also sizable, is set on the opposite side of the living room for optimum privacy, next to a home office outfitted with transom windows. There is plentiful storage space throughout the apartment, including 8 closets. Pet friendly; Pied-a-terres and washer/dryer permitted.
