History Meets Modern Luxury:
“This rare, impressive corner loft in Noho’s famed historic MSI building affords the unique opportunity of owning a piece of the city’s legacy.
After nearly 40 years, this jaw-dropping space was meticulously renovated and painstakingly restored with specific attention to the preservation of all historic details, creating at the same time a sleek, 21st century environment of luxury.
The huge floor to ceiling arched windows (13′ high x 20′ wide) frame the dramatic and unique living space, setting the stage for the spacious 48′ great room, 10′ long stone fireplace, and 12′ marble kitchen island with separate dining area — the perfect layout for elegant entertaining.
The open chef’s kitchen is furnished with custom Italian Poliform cabinetry and top of the line Gaggenau appliances.
The impressive master bedroom has its own arched window and 20′ of floor to ceiling custom twin closets. The dramatic en-suite master bathroom has a large soaking tub with a spectacular backdrop of Italian statuary marble. Additionally, it is equipped with radiant heated flooring, separate dual vanities, and a spacious shower. Fixtures are Dornbracht and Fantini throughout.
The guest bedroom / media room has a large walk-in closet and a full en-suite bathroom, which of course is also furnished in exquisite Italian marble.
All floors are solid wide-plank Swedish beech wood. To protect artwork and appointments, the windows have been coated with Sunshield solar film. The loft has been designed with ample closets throughout, and massive custom pocket doors to increase the flexibility of the space.
Additionally, this stunning space is equipped with a state of the art audio / visual system, three independent HVAC zones, LG washer & dryer, remote-controlled solar shades, and a home security system.
Built in 1898, the Manhattan Savings Institute bank building (MSI) is situated in the exclusive and ultra-chic neighborhood of NoHo. One of the city’s finest surviving examples of 19th century architecture, the MSI has been named one of the Top Ten loft buildings in New York. The site is also famous for the largest bank robbery in American history, inspiring accounts in both print and film.”
