The apartment is on East 12th Street, two blocks from Union Square and five from Washington Square Park.

The most notable thing about this two bedroom, two-and-a-half bath condo is its size. The apartment, in a building that went up in 1908 and was converted to loft condos in 1983, is over 2,000 square feet, and has 12-foot ceilings and a kitchen that's huge by New York standards. The unit is listed by Citi Habitats for $3.795 million, and it's close to Union Square and Washington Square Park, not to mention the many subway lines that stop at either. 

A private, keyed elevator takes you directly into the full-floor apartment. The open living room's corner position means lots of natural light coming through large windows. There's exposed brick and enough space for a dining area. The kitchen is massive, with enough counter and storage space to service a restaurant, and it includes a walk-in pantry and brand-name appliances. On the other side of the kitchen is a room that could serve as a media room or office. 

At the opposite end of the apartment is the master bedroom, which comes with a walk-in closet that could pass as another bedroom in plenty of New York apartments. On the down side, though, the wall of windows doesn't seem to offer much of a view. A second bedroom, which could serve as a nursery, is also spacious but appears to lack closets. 

The master bedroom's en-suite bathroom is equipped with a custom vanity with double sinks and a stylish shower stall, while the second full bathroom has a deep soaking tub. There's an additional half-bath off the den. 

The floor plan shows an in-unit washer and dryer. There is also central air and smart home tech that lets you control media and lighting. The building has a full-time super, bike storage, and a shared roof deck. There are $2,000 in monthly common charges, and $1,442 in taxes per month.
