If you like the open space of Downtown apartment, but miss the classic, pre-war aesthetic of an Uptown homes, allow us to present this loft that just hit the market for $3.2 million in the Police Building in Little Italy.
Like all apartments in the historic building, which used to house the New York City Police Department, this 1,400-square-foot apartment looks like nothing you could find anywhere else in the city.
In addition to the 17′-ceilings, the two-bedroom, two and a half bathroom apartment has fine mahogany finishes on everything, including the flourettes on the staircase railings. There’s also black-and-white tile in the bathroom, subway tiles in the kitchen (and marble counters), a curving staircase, and massive, massive windows.
There are some slightly weird things about the apartment, like the green and black tiled bathroom (hmmm), and the giant curtained closet, but all of that seems very easily fixable. It’s safe to say we’re totally in love with the place, though we realize it may not suit everyone’s style.
And as an added bonus, you can choose to also buy the furniture in the apartment, although sadly, that sparkly chandelier is not for sale.
