Jawdropper of the Week: Lofty Goals in Midtown Village

Exposed brick walls are a dime a dozen. It's not too often one finds exposed brick ceilings, though. And the ones here soar to great heights.

Not trying to make an overstatement here, but we just might have found the loft of your dreams.

This Midtown Village condo is the ultimate home to match your city personality. Statement walls? Talk about statement ceilings: the completely open main floor features brick ceilings rising 23 feet and is flooded with light pouring through sizable double-hung arched windows. Warm hardwood floors, solid core doors and exposed industrial beams add charm and modernize the space. In such an illuminated room, it’s impossible not to look forward to mornings before work.

The sleek, high-end kitchen on the main floor features Carrera marble countertops, Pedini cabinetry and drawers and an eating bar that’s perfect for enjoying a quick breakfast or entertaining guests while cooking. The loft bedroom above features great ceiling height and a second bathroom. With those huge windows, this space is perfect for those who love watching the great urban ballet unfold on the streets beneath them.

This condo is a part of the White Building, which includes amenities such as secure on-site storage rooms, bike room, fitness center, and a security/intercom system. It’s right at the northern edge of Midtown Village and the Gayborhood, which offer so many shopping, dining and entertainment options close at hand that this condo boasts a Walk Score of 100. And more is on the way with the soon-to-open Target Express and MOM’s Organic Market; if it’s possible to get a Walk Score of 101, we’d suggest this place should have it.

THE FINE PRINT
