If you need proof of how art can transform a living space - look no further than the raw loft space at 45 Lispenard Street. This 19th century Renaissance Revival building dates back to 1895 and grants the unit extraordinary prewar details rarely seen elsewhere, including 11 barrel vaulted ceilings and striking Doric columns.
It was here that Stribling & Associates hosted an exclusive viewing of large scale works by emerging artist Julia Ryan. The event was curated by Stribling’s top-producing Lanyard Grandelli Team – consisting of Jason Lanyard, Nicole Grandelli, and Geo Punnapuzha. Giant canvases of Julia’s colorful masterpieces covered the walls of the $2.4 Million apartment, now on the market, showcasing the agents’ creative use of space.
This high-floor 1800sf loft features expansive, oversized 6-tall windows lining the entirety of the northern and southern walls which flood the home with light all throughout the day. Elegant dark stained maple wood flooring is featured throughout the loft. Currently configured as a 2BR, the malleable layout easily converts to a 3rd BR and additional bathrooms. The open kitchen sports white oak and glass cabinetry as well as a large island with Corian countertops and storage underneath. The spacious windowed bathroom features slate flooring, large soaking tub and porcelain pedestal sink. A separate laundry room is conveniently located off the entry foyer and provides additional storage. 45 Lispenard boasts a completely renovated lobby, a gorgeous landscaped roofdeck with grilling station and outdoor shower, and a new elevator and virtual doorman video intercom system.
