Wonderful and authentic loft with original details on one of Gramercy's most beautiful blocks just off Irving Place. A semi-private landing with keyed elevator leads to a large foyer with original maple floors and mottled glass schoolhouse doors. Sunlight pours into the open living/dining/kitchen through oversized double-hung windows facing west and north. The entire loft enjoys wonderful light, and three open exposures. The beamed ceilings are just under 11 feet tall, there is exposed brick, maple floors with an old world patina, and ample space for entertaining and casual living. The primary bedroom has a sunny eastern exposure and well-designed storage. Two more bedrooms are in this wing, conveniently separated from the entertaining space by an artfully designed jib door. The massive bathroom features double sinks, a large soaking tub and a washer dryer. The plumbing allows for many flexible options, such as adding more baths, more bedrooms, and so forth. No apartment in this line is the same, as so many configurations are possible. One block south of Gramercy Park, between historic Irving Place and Park Avenue South on the coveted "Block Beautiful" of 19th Street, The Ruggles House rises over its neighboring protected low-rise buildings. This historic pre-war gem was constructed in 1913 and has maintained its original pre-WW1 Industrial character with high beamed-ceiling lofts with massive windows. Ruggles House has a video intercom system and key-locked elevators with only two residences per floor. The meticulously maintained, pet-friendly building features a recently updated marble lobby, a stunning planted roof deck with beautiful views, bicycle storage, and an attentive full-time superintendent. It is one of very few true loft buildings near Gramercy Park, and convenient to the restaurants of Irving Place and Park Avenue South, several lines of transportation and the Union Square Greenmarket. 75% financing permitted and low maintenance.
