Don't miss this incredibly rare and voluminous convertible-3 bedroom loft featuring an extremely efficient square layout, 11’ ceilings, and a dozen oversized windows on three sunny exposures, all set on a coveted Gramercy Park block.
This bright and airy convertible-3 bedroom showplace is bathed in sunlight and views thanks to an astonishing 12 extra-tall windows lining the eastern, northern and western exposures — providing a stark contrast to typical loft homes which tend to be dim and narrow, lit by only a few windows on either end, and burdened by space-stealing center hallways. Here, living spaces are intentionally positioned to accentuate the loft's unprecedented number of windows, meaning one can literally track the changing sunlight throughout the day, from sunrise to sunset. The half-floor footprint of the home forms a 50-foot by 41-foot square and, thanks to the genius layout, every square inch is useable space with no dim, wasted hallway. Set on a pristine, tree-lined Gramercy Park block at the epicenter of coveted Manhattan living, this rare loft offering is not to be missed.
Created by an Emmy Award-winning set designer, and one of the original co-op shareholders, this sprawling and serene space has been planned, built and maintained with a meticulous eye for detail and utter devotion to aesthetics. The combination of Arts and Crafts influences alongside traditional Japanese interior design accentuates the bones of the unique loft and lend the space an indoor-outdoor feeling reminiscent of a Pacific oasis. Eleven-foot ceilings, authentic Rama panels, Shoji screens and Noguchi Akari Light fixtures add to the effect, while furnishings and repurposed artifacts decorate the space like a composition, calling to mind a tranquil Zen garden.
The dramatic sunken great room is the centerpiece of the home, providing luxurious living, dining and entertaining areas. The two existing spacious bedrooms, each with ample storage space, are positioned on the eastern and western exposures to leave the impressive 48-foot wide northern exposure uninterrupted. An innovative and space-maximizing bathroom design places a wet-room shower and tub between two separate water closet/sink areas on either side, while the eat-in kitchen is a vision in terra-cotta tile and rustic wood cabinetry that artfully conceals the dishwasher and in-unit washer and dryer. Move right into this architectural work of art, or easily reimagine the incredibly flexible space with three, or more, bedrooms. This home includes a storage locker in the basement.
Erected in 1912 and converted in the 1970s, the Ruggles House is one of the pioneer loft buildings in the city and especially notable for its Gramercy Park location. Its purposefully understated entry offers a desirable level of discretion, providing residents utter privacy along with key-locked elevator access, a bike room and a delightful roof garden lovingly attended by devoted shareholders.
Set in prime Gramercy, just on block south of Gramercy Park and two blocks north of Union Square, this fantastic home is surrounded by glorious historic architecture and top-notch dining, entertainment and recreation. Gramercy Tavern, ABC Kitchen, Eleven Madison Park, Eataly, Dear Irving, Union Square Cafe, Daily Provisions, Bedford Cheese Shop, and Whole Foods will please even the most discerning foodies; Madison Square Park and Union Square offer spectacular year-round events and greenmarkets; and with N/Q/R/W, 4/5/6 and L trains within blocks, the rest of the city is just minutes away.
