If you have lofty hopes for your next home, you might be interested in some of the apartments highlighted in this week’s Open House Scorecard -- the 10 open house listings people browsing StreetEasy this weekend saved more often than any others -- as renovated lofts take center stage. 

A completely renovated two-bedroom loft condo on Leonard Street (between Church Street and Broadway) is on the market for $2.5m. The top-floor duplex with a private terrace has ceilings reaching up to 15’. The terrace is not currently connected to the unit, though there are plans available and permits from the DOB in place to do so. Also, you’ll find a cyber doorman instead of a live one.

Three blocks away on Walker Street in Tribeca is a move-in ready $2.395m two-bedroom condo on the third floor of an 1869 building that was completely renovated in 2003. The full- floor loft features an in-unit W/D and central HVAC throughout. Common charges of $2,243 reflect current assessments of $974. 

A $1.95m two-bedroom Chelsea condo loft on West 27th between Sixth and Seventh Avenues offers lots of light via 14 windows and three exposures to the south, east and west. The kitchen has been renovated and features an island and Bosch dishwasher. An open 33’x21’ corner space can serve as a third bedroom or home office. Central air, an in-unit W/D, and common landscaped roof deck round out the rest of the perks. However, there’s no doorman and property taxes of $2,959 per month are high, pushing the total monthly carrying costs to over $4,000.

Down south on 10th Street -- between Broadway and University Place -- a $679k one-bedroom loft co-op features a renovated bath and 12’ ceilings. Parents purchasing for their kids and guarantors are allowed for this unit, which has W/D bragging rights, and a video intercom system in place of a doorman.
