In the market for a high-end loft downtown that's been updated with all the modern conveniences? This penthouse co-op at 284 Lafayette St. in Soho, listed for $5,125,000, may be worth a look. 

The three bedroom, two and a half bath is 2,500 square feet and on the top floor of a six-story building. The apartment was fully renovated in 2014, including updates of the plumbing and electric systems, and the installation of a new HVAC system.

The loft has more than half a dozen skylights, as well as ceilings measuring over 11 feet, seven-inch oak floors, custom millwork, and exposed wood beams and columns. 

The kitchen has oak cabinets, black granite countertops, an island, a garbage disposal, and high-end appliances. Overhead is one of the skylights. 

The master bedroom has a walk-in closet, as well as a bathroom suite of white oak, limestone, and red brick, as well as as a walk-in steam shower and a tub for two. 

The second bedroom is currently set up as a library. It has floor-to-ceiling oak and steel bookshelves, as well as a sliding ladder. 

The third bedroom has a walk-in closet, a skylight, and a full bathroom. There's also a washer and dryer in the apartment.

The building has a pet-friendly and subletting policy.
