Property Description for 12 West 17th Street, 9

Classic Artist Loft w/ Alluring Modern Amenities As one of the first residential conversions in the Flatiron District (in the early 70's), this co-op embraces the understated low profile of early loft-dwellers combined with today's contemporary desire for comfort. The result is a solid, well-run building with elegant flourishes - a perfect pairing of pragmatism and ease. From the moment you use the state-of-the-art video intercom and enter the perpetually clean (but decidedly unglamorous) lobby you get it: this co-op cares about its shareholders' quality of life, as well as their wallets. In the elevator cab, on your short ride up, reflect on the fact that at $1.60/SF your maintenance is amongst the lowest in the city. The savings on maintenance is like a monthly thank you note! Once the secure keyed elevator door opens you realize all you've hoped for - a modern loft home. Greeted by an oversized open living space with large windows, great ceiling heights, three exposures (N,E,S), and strong hints of an industrial past, you'll be flush with the feeling of falling in love. There, we said it. The industrial past, however, shows only through d cor details, as this home boasts thoroughly modern conveniences. The generous living/dining room space can hold large parties but feels intimate enough for getting cozy while watching TV. Many practical layout choices make this home extremely livable and scalable. The large modern kitchen and attached breakfast nook have several large windows facing East and South, ensuring that the space will always be bright, especially during your morning cup of java. The master suite is a haven of relaxation with plenty of room to unwind. With a large swath of South facing windows and with no structure to block the light, you can easily see One World Trade. The suite also has a dressing room and a five fixture master bath complete with a full size bathtub, a separate shower and two sinks. This 9th floor apartment offers a unique vantage point for the architectural details which make the Flatiron/Chelsea area so renowned. The buildings across the street have beautifully detailed facades with stained copper cornices, elaborately decorated parapet walls, and masterfully laid brickwork. The skyline is engraved with Gotham's finest water towers. This is a pet-friendly, boutique 11 unit building complete with oversized dedicated storage cages for each floor. You're just a short block from Union Square with its famous Greenmarket and convenient transportation hub. With several Michelin star restaurants close by, you are surrounded by excellent food and shopping. If you want more, the Village, Gramercy Park, Soho, Meatpacking and even the Highline are only a few moments away. An extra bonus is that this loft can be turned into a four bedroom home with relative ease (see the alternative floor plan). With the market beginning to heal, this is an opportune time to embrace this special home. A distinctive fusion of modernity and provenance awaits you.
