Be Home, Live in the Flatiron Loft
Wrap yourself in color and light in this expansive designer four-bedroom, three-bathroom home in a historic Flatiron District loft co-op building.
Working in partnership with the homeowner, designer Rayman Boozer has created the perfect amalgamation of exuberant color and sleek modern accents to masterful effect. It's no wonder the home has been featured both in Architectural Digest and on HGTV. Blue accent walls punctuate the sprawling great room while cerulean blue skies and iconic views peek in the abundant 7ft windows that line the space to the south and east. Deep-stained plank floors pave the home, 11-foot-tall beamed ceilings rise overhead and perfectly placed built-ins add storage and seating. Chefs will be planning their next dinner party the moment they set eyes on the stunning partially open kitchen. Here, rows of sleek cabinetry run alongside top-notch stainless-steel appliances, including an eight-burner Viking range with hood, Thermador refrigerator and Miele dishwasher.
An oasis of calm in the heart of the city, the grand master bedroom suite features two customs closet and an oversized en-suite bathroom that awaits to soothe away the stresses of the day with ample Carrara marble and tile surrounding a walk-in shower, separate deep-soaking tub and dual-sink vanity. Two spacious and bright secondary bedrooms with picturesque southern city views are set across from a second full bathroom-for-two, while the fourth bedroom is equally suited as a private home office or guest suite with the elegant full guest bath across the hall.
Colorful designer light fixtures, window and wall treatments make a bold statement in what Architectural Digest calls "an irrepressible antidote to the proverbial concrete jungle." A whole-house sound system, including theater surround sound in the living room, plus quiet windows, central heat and air, and a full-size, in-unit washer-dryer make everyday living a joy in this stunning designer showplace.
Set within the Ladies Mile Historic District, 40 West 17th Street is a handsome Beaux-Arts store-and-loft building faced in limestone, terra cotta and brick. Built in 1909, the building originally housed sellers of buttons and apparel, which was characteristic of the district at the time. Today, residents of this fine Flatiron cooperative enjoy part-time superintendent service, video intercom and keyed elevator access. Set within blocks of both Union Square and Madison Square Park, this home is located in the most exciting section of Manhattan with premier dining, shopping, and nightlife on all sides. Access to transportation in this centrally located neighborhood is superb with 4/5/6, N/Q/R/W, L, 1/2/3, F/M and PATH trains all nearby.
