Custom Soho loft that doubles as a ‘work of art’ asking for $5.4 million

A New York loft with fancy design features has been touted as a ‘work of art’ – with a rarefied price tag of $5.4 million.

This sculptural Soho apartment has just hit the market for the first time in a quarter of a century. And, thanks to the abundance of original details added by its seller, it really is quite unique.

For the asking price of $5.495 million, buyers not only get 2,500 square feet of bright Manhattan real estate, but also a variety of unique amenities built into its floor plan.

The three-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath unit makes up the entire second floor of 112 Prince St., a co-op building that has a monthly maintenance fee of $2,722.

Built by a 25-year-old resident and concept artist Michel Somoroff as well as architect Stephen Wanta, the living room and dining room are defined by floor-to-ceiling post-modern handcrafted carvings in Italian marmoline. The sculptures frame the perimeter of the main area and were built by craftsmen on site, according to tunit list with Katie Thurber and Elizabeth Scandiffio de Serhant.

The main space has 13 foot ceilings.

There’s no shortage of bespoke features in the study either, with the office area built on a raised ‘stage’ and a very tall bookcase accessible only with a ladder.

The eat-in kitchen has a number of personal touches in addition to generous counter space. In the southern part of the loft there is a laundry room and a keyed elevator entrance.

The master bedroom has an en-suite bathroom a few feet from the bed, allowing you to roll right into the decadent soaking tub.

In terms of the original details attached to this 122 year old building, there is a restored ceiling with wooden beams, cast iron columns and six wood framed windows. The ceilings are 13 feet high, and the building also has a common roof terrace and storage in the basement.
