A SoHo co-op has plenty of chic and interesting angles

How much total do you plan to tip the building staff this year?

This renovated co-op in the heart of SoHo has all the bells and whistles you’d expect of a luxury loft—especially one that’s asking $6.25 million (with a $4,095 monthly maintenance fee). Listed by Prime Manhattan, the four-bedroom was designed by the architect West Chin, whose famously minimalist approach contributes to the sense of spaciousness here.

His design flair is evident immediately upon entering the home via the foyer, with its curved wall. As with most lofts the cavernous main space—with 11 foot ceilings—is an open plan living room, dining room, and kitchen, its industrial-chic aesthetic highlighted by steel columns and visible ceiling beams, allowing a look at the building’s raw materials.

The chef’s kitchen, with its marble topped island, makes for stylish entertaining, as do the upscale appliances. Glass cabinets and hanging black pendant lights give this part of the room a bit of welcome edge.

The master bedroom has the kind of storage space New Yorkers fantasize about: two closets, plus an additional walk-in. And the co-op’s custom detailing continues with the huge pocket doors at the entrance, and a cedar headboard over the bed. The master’s en -uite bath includes a stainless steel vanity, with his and hers sinks and a deep, glassed-in soaking tub.

We only get a glimpse of one of the other three bedrooms, located on the opposite side of the apartment to allow for privacy. Interestingly, as they appear on the floor plan, these additional rooms are arranged at an angle; the one pictured here, while quite narrow, has plenty of style with its floating ceiling and exposed beams. Plus, it has its own en suite bath, and its large west-facing windows will likely make for stellar sunset views.

The listing mentions that the remaining two bedrooms are “internal rooms”—that is, no windows—which means they may be better suited as guest rooms or offices. Which begs the question: So is it an actual four-bedroom then?
