About 20 West 27th Street

Beaux-Arts Factory Loft in the Heart of NoMad

This loft on a high floor in this 1896 Beaux-Arts landmark factory building redefines late-19th century industry into a beautifully balanced live/work residence for the new homeowner. The idea of circulation within an open floor plan informs the organization of this space. The loft is an oasis located in the heart of NoMad and well-aligned for the owner to go about his/her daily life and work routines. This is an authentic New York experience in a historically significant building that has not been on the market in more than 25 years.

A private, newly modernized elevator leads directly into the loft. Northern and southern exposures floods the space with natural light along with: 12 foot soaring ceilings; original refinished maple hardwood floors throughout; original replastered walls and ceiling throughout; and oversized commercial windows with unobstructed views of the Empire State Building and Midtown skyline. In addition, the loft provides its new owner with the opportunity to create flexible space ideal for a dynamic live/work style, with two bedrooms and an additional bathroom.

A key-lock elevator opens into an open living/meeting/entertainment space, complete with floor to ceiling windows facing north, two of which pivot, overlooking iconic NoMad architecture and a panoramic view of the Empire State Building. The dramatic city vistas are juxtaposed by the serenity of the space enhanced by natural and reflective light and beautiful proportions of the space. The large front part of the loft apartment offers ample space in which to welcome guests; a sizeable open area perfect for meeting, entertaining or simply appreciating the views; a dining and work flex space; and a floor to ceiling closet with enormous storage.

As one continues toward the back, there is an original Upstate country home French door leading to the kitchen, a recently updated bathroom (and potential for a second half or full bath with W/D), a raised alcove for home office or guest room, and a versatile lounge/living area which would allow an additional two bedrooms, one with ensuite bath.

The kitchen has modernist grey lacquer-finish cabinetry and an industrial stainless steel eat-in island. The bathroom has been newly renovated with matte black porcelain slab floors, white high gloss European fixtures, and a clawfoot tub for soaking or a rain shower. A walk-in closet off the bath has an abundance of clothing space and overhead storage on both sides to optimize usage. The elevated alcove maximizes space for work or accommodating guests steps above the main floor with ample storage below. The back half of the loft offers the chance for two full bedrooms, one with ensuite bath, or a flexible area to be used for sitting, reading, work, play or creation. Rounding out this one-of-a-kind loft is a wall of windows highlighting more quintessential NoMad views, Southern exposure, and an abundance of light during the afternoon hours.

20 West 27th Street is self-managed and well-maintained with recent capital improvements, including a new elevator and direct roof access. The roof offers dramatic, open views of the Empire State Building and NoMad. The building is pet friendly and has limited storage space in the basement. (Note: base maintenance is $1924, and includes a 10 year $800 assessment for improvements.) 20 West 27th Street is located close to: both Madison Square Park and Union Square Park; the NoMad Hotel and its Michelin-starred restaurant; the Ace Hotel and its destination lounge; famed shops such as Maison 10, Standard Dose, and Rizzoli Bookstore; numerous eateries including Eleven Madison Park, Il Fiorista, Kazunori, La Pecora Bianca, Breslin and several within Eataly; wine bars, the Union Square greenmarket, independently owned jazz clubs, and fitness, wellness centers and spa amenities; and numerous subway lines. Come make this incredibly rare downtown New York loft an experience of your own.
