A four-bedroom loft on the second floor of 285 Lafayette Street, a sought-after prewar condominium conversion, is poised to enter the market for $11.5 million.
The monthly common charges for the 4,060-square-foot apartment, No. 2B, are $3,126; monthly taxes are $2,485.
A keyed elevator opens directly onto the rambling unit, which occupies the northwest corner of the building. Classic loft details, including a soaring ceiling, exposed wood beams, multiple cast-iron columns and tall windows, blend with eclectic design touches.
In the spacious master bedroom, a deep-soaking Waterworks tub is on display — a sexy focal point for the room, which includes a sitting area. One wall of the gallery-style living room is covered in a zigzag-pattern wallpaper from Osborne & Little. A brick wall in the dining area is painted gray and flecked with gold and silver, while the adjacent chef’s kitchen has dark-stained cabinets and high-end stainless-steel appliances.
“This is an exceptional opportunity to own a gorgeous four-bedroom family-size loft,” said Jessica C. Campbell, a real estate agent with Nest Seekers International, who is listing the apartment. “It’s a very adult loft,” she said, noting that it is “in an exclusive full-service condominium, in a coveted location downtown.”
The Lafayette Street building has a rooftop garden, a 24-hour concierge and full-time doormen. Located a block south of East Houston Street, at the eastern fringe of SoHo, it sits adjacent to the Puck Building, where a duplex penthouse with private terraces and a “yoga lawn” was recently listed for$66 million.
