The living room has a 24-foot high ceiling (ceiling heights everywhere else are 13 feet ) and a wood-burning fireplace. The sizeable open kitchen with butler’s pantry speaks to your inner chef with its stainless-steel Viking appliances, custom wood cabinets and Imperial White granite countertops. Master baths have slab tub decks, Calcutta Gold marble vanity tops and floors with glass mosaic inlays. Building amenities include having your mail hand-delivered, a private gated drive-through porte-cochere, valet parking and a 24/7 doorman and concierge. A sprawling 5,136SF – it’s priced at $9.5 million with all the fixings; 9.150 million if you want to design the interior to your own specifications.

    "Loft living has mainstreamed during the past three decades and represents as pro-found a change in the industry as did the preference for apartments versus townhouses in the 1920s,” says William May, chairman of the William B. May Company.
