Why rent when you can own this for less? The super low monthly maintenance makes this home a unique opportunity to build equity in arguably one of downtown's best neighborhoods. In a boutique 11 unit elevator building, you'll discover this truly one-of-a-kind duplex with 14 ft. ceilings and 2 levels of cleverly designed, efficient living space. Upon entering the loft, you're immediately wowed by the soaring ceiling height and amazing light from 3 oversized south facing windows. Painted brick walls add to the charm and character. Storage has been streamlined and maximized throughout with the ingenious use of multiple custom built-in closets, cabinets, drawers and shelving. The open kitchen, with cherry wood cabinetry and Corian countertops, is the model of efficient design. The form and function continues up the spiral staircase to the open mezzanine level, where you'll find a sleeping area with a built-in bed and more clever closet and storage space. There's even a home office complete with a built-in desk and shelving. The apartment comes with two large storage rooms, and bike storage. In addition, each apartment has its own private section of the very cool (temperature and otherwise!) common basement wine cellar, to store approximately 100 bottles of your favorite vintage.
The beautifully designed, landscaped common roof deck is a lovely respite any time of year, and the lobby has recently undergone a tastefully designed renovation.
Built in 1860 on former "Church Farm" lots owned by Trinity Church, 74-76 Reade Street is a 5 story Italianate style marble and cast-iron building with a rich history. Once occupied by dealers in hats, caps, straw goods, cutlery and wholesalers of boots and shoes, it is within the Tribeca South Historic District, designated by the Landmarks Preservation Commission in 1992. This convenient downtown location is close to 13 subway lines, Whole Foods, Equinox and multiple parks including Washington Market and City Hall Park.
