A fabulous, full-floor loft located in the heart of Manhattan’s Flatiron District has hit the market, and it has everything that the modern homebuyer could ever want. Marketed by Leonard Steinberg, Lois Planco and Herve Senequier of Compass, the 4,100-square-foot condo is asking $10 million, and we think it’s definitely worth the investment. Let’s dive into all the juicy details and specs, shall we?
The super-cool three-bedroom, three-bathroom condo at 6 West 20th Street has recently emerged from a full renovation, which brought it up to modern standards. Designed by Russell Riccardi Architect and executed by John Hummel and Associates, the Flatiron condo boasts a fresh and stylish vibe, and a plethora of cool amenities.
Upon entering the loft via a key-locked, private elevator, you’re immediately hit with abundant natural light coming in through the massive windows. The loft is laid out in a semi-open fashion; all the spaces blend in seamlessly, but they can be separated ingeniously through pocket doors installed throughout.
The loft includes plenty of amenities besides the tasteful bedrooms, including a 12-seat dining room, a media room/home office, a pantry, a laundry room, a chef’s kitchen, and a powder room.
An interesting feature that harks back to another era is a hidden wall panel just off the living room, which leads to the office/library. You’ll never have to worry about anyone interrupting your workflow or reading sessions.
The sound-absorbing high ceilings and light colors further enhance the openness of the rooms, which boast lighting systems designed by Clinard Design Studio and powered by Lutron Homeworks.
Besides the intelligent lighting systems, the home can also be operated remotely, thanks to a Savant home automation system that controls audio and video, lighting, window treatments, the HVAC system, and security cameras.
The pre-war building completed in 1910 also comes with some upgraded amenities, including all-new water pipes, gas pipes and a new water pump system. Additionally, new passenger and freight elevators will soon be installed, and the building lobby will undergo a revamp. Maintenance costs for the loft are estimated at $5,419 per month.
If you’re thinking that this loft looks picture-perfect from every angle, bathed in natural light in every corner, that might have something to do with one of its previous owners. The condo once used to house the late and renowned photojournalist Ken Regan, who was the unofficial photographer for the Kennedys for nearly 40 years. The Bronx-native professional had a long and fruitful career, and over the years photographed Bob Dylan, the Rolling Stones, Muhammad Ali, Mike Tyson, Vince Lombardi, and Wilt Chamberlain, among many others.
Ken Regan passed away in 2012, but his work lives on, showcased in major art galleries around the world, including the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame & Museum, the International Center of Photography, the New York Historical Society, the National Baseball Hall of Fame & Museum, and the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
