With a soaring 18′ ceiling and 14′ windows, this uniquely renovated loft features an upstairs bedroom with hardwood floors and open stainless steel railings overlooking a spacious living area. European-style espresso-finished wood and frosted glass doors provide entry into the newly built custom walk-in closet and upstairs bathroom. A three-tiered suspended industrial steel custom staircase with hickory butcher block stair treads includes an elevated platform and dual landings with solid hickory inlays.
The expanded kitchen (one of the largest in The Stacks) includes a large island with generous counter space and a floating breakfast bar, while also featuring a hidden pull-out pantry cabinet. A cozy bar area with wine/beverage refrigeration and 3-tap kegerator provide for frequent social gatherings among the local residents. A windmill style Edison lamp adorns the brick wall between the windows providing for perfect evening ambiance. The loft wouldn’t be complete without a bit of technology, as most lighting is voice-controlled.
