Turnkey opportunity for an authentic 3BR furnished Soho loft in the highly prized 285 Lafayette.
Originally founded in 1886 as the Hawley & Hoops Chocolate Factory, this apartment was the top floor of the original factory prior to the condo conversion and expansion in 1999. The apartment has maintained some of the original details from exposed red brick, to the large column free proportions, to the brick archways, and other surprise details such as a decommissioned steel plated dumb waiter. This 3300-square-foot corner loft with multiple exposures boasts 11-foot ceilings with fantastic SE light overlooking the grounds and the cathedral of the Basilica of St. Patrick's. The open chef's kitchen layout with wide oak flooring extending throughout the apartment highlights one of the largest column free living / great rooms in Soho.
Bring your toothbrush and move right in to enjoy a finely curated selection of furnishings and designs by some of the top designers in NY and beyond. As you walk through you'll notice the apartment is decorated with sculptures and framed works from the owner's curated collection. Relax on the hand picked Minotti leather sofas or the Holy Hunt daybed with your drinks placed on the matching coffee table, underneath the light emanating from the Roche Bobois chandelier, while listening to your favorite music through world class Bowers & Wilkins Nautilus speakers powered by a best in class McIntosh sound system. Spend your days working at the Italian designed Borena desk while bathed in the open eastern sunlight, referencing your collection of books from the built in bookcase / display case, only to dine across the room later in the day at a Finn Juhl designed Judas Table accented by Danish designed Mid-Century Rosewood chairs.
The chef's kitchen is made to entertain, or to enjoy a casual breakfast bellied up to the cantilevered counter on your stools. Featuring 2 top of the line Sub-Zeros with Miele and Bosch appliances, the kitchen has plenty of space to prepare and host a gathering of any size. The 3 bedrooms are curated from the likes of ABC Carpet with the primary bedroom set aside and private on the opposite side of the apartment from the other 2 bedrooms. You will find plenty of room to navigate in a separate laundry room with an additional storage closet. 285 Lafayette is a premier boutique loft building in prime Soho where you'll be welcomed in upon your arrival by the concierge while a recently renovated rooftop deck with outdoor grills is ready for your summer enjoyment.
