14 Harrison St, Unit 5/6
Rare opportunity to buy a Pre-war Tribeca - two story penthouse loft, with around ~ 4500 interior sqft, roof rights, 18 foot ceiling with skylight, mezzanine, 3 beds, 2 baths, artists studio, keyed elevator, storage and very low monthlies. The rich and awe-inspiring penthouse at 14 Harrison Street -- the longtime home of world-renowned playwright Edward Albee -- is ready for a new owner to continue its impressive story. Immediately upon entering this dramatic space, one is transported back to the origins of Tribeca loft-living, with massive spaces, exposed brick and, in this case, double-height ceilings. This provides a blank canvas for your vision. Currently configured as a 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom home with 3 exposures, the possibilities are endless. A sweeping 35-foot wide living and dining area makes this loft extremely conducive for both living, creating, and entertaining. The atelier skylight nearly 18 feet above the main floor floods the home with natural light throughout the day. On the main level, there is a generous separate kitchen, bedroom suite with sitting room and full bathroom. Upstairs, one finds another bedroom suite with full bathroom, a separate den, and a studio space with direct elevator access. This loft with extremely low monthly maintenance is one of only a few downtown spaces like this which remain, where one can create or house large-scale works of art and be able to admire them in such a spacious surrounding. Located on a quiet cobblestone Tribeca block, this loft is the real thing.
