Retreat from the city to this 4,700-square-foot, full-floor loft offering grand rooms, brilliant light and multitextured finishes throughout.

A comfortable light-flooded living area is warmed by a brick fireplace, while a private sitting area provides the perfect place to curl up with the Sunday Times. Floor-to-ceiling glass doors open onto a lush, landscaped terrace, which enjoys charming views of the neighboring ivy-covered buildings and brownstone gardens. The master bathroom is a sanctuary unto itself, boasting floor-to-ceiling limestone, a deep soaking tub and a custom vanity with double sinks.

At the opposite side of the loft you'll find the oversized guest bedroom. The guest bathroom is equally soothing and offers hand-cut glass tiles and an oversized soaking tub with Waterworks fittings.
