Leases signed. Pending Board Approval. FEATURED IN ARCHITECTURAL DIGEST.: Privacy, serenity, space, and light will envelop you in this extraordinary loft. Designed by the architectural firm Thom & Wilson and built in 1891, 182 Lafayette Street is one of Soho's Cast-iron historical treasures and is located in a quiet corner and yet surrounded by iconic restaurants, shops, and galleries such as La Esquina, Balthazar, Raoul's, Sadelle's, Jack's Wife Freda, Osteria Morini, Whole Foods, Gourmet Garage, Trader Joe's, MoMa Design Store, and more. Ensconced in a boutique loft building, #5 is accessed through a key-lock elevator which opens directly into the windowed foyer of a grand, 2600-square-foot, full-floor sanctuary. Rare for New York City lofts, #5 has windowed exposures on all three sides, through which natural light pours in and shines throughout the space. A wall of windows graces the great room/living room, illuminating exposed brick and original iron columns. There are newly refinished hardwood floors and majestically high ceilings throughout. An open chef's kitchen, with Viking stove, high-end appliances and a large island, flows into a generous, light-filled dining alcove. A quiet, western-facing, bedroom wing with two bedrooms, features two newly renovated bathrooms -- designed by Sarah Sherman Samuel. The primary marble bathroom is en-suite and has a separate shower, a deep spa tub, and double sinks. The second bathroom has a gorgeous claw foot tub and rain shower. The loft also has a windowed office alcove; an in-unit laundry room with washer and dryer; a new, state-of-the-art water filtration system; and central air conditioning. If you are looking for a quiet, private, bright, authentic Soho loft, this is it. This the best of the Old World meets best of the New, a one-of-a-kind loft that can be rented FULLY FURNISHED or UNFURNISHED, LONG- or SHORT-TERM (3 months minimum). Pets ok.
