If you're the type of New Yorker who loves both the old and the new, who's equally attracted to historic properties and state-of-the-art home tech, this three-bedroom, 3.5-bath Tribeca loft should appeal. Built at the turn of the century as a manufacturing space, the property has been gut-renovated, but retains its exposed brick, steel beams, and barrel-vaulted ceilings for a blend of raw with polished. Listed by Keller Williams for $3.5 million, the condo's price actually passes for relatively low in this neighborhood.   

A foyer leads into the open living and kitchen area, a huge, airy space with 13-foot ceilings and multiple exposures bringing in lots of natural light. The exposed brick and pipes along the walls and ceiling reflect the building's industrial past, which is balanced by the sleek, contemporary kitchen. There, you'll find glossy cabinety offering plenty of storage, a breakfast bar, and top of the line appliances, including a wine fridge. 

Each of the three bedrooms boasts its own en suite bath and closet space; the master's corner position and multiple exposures makes it especially sunny. The listing notes that this room can also be opened to living room to create a massive space for entertaining. 

The master bath is definitely worthy of notice, with its cedar soaking tub and walk-in rain shower. Each of the baths includes the luxe detail of heated towel bars, one of several smart home features; others include Sonos speakers, video security, and lighting you can control with your phone. There's also a laundry room with a washer and dryer, and the building has a common roof deck.
