Selling 193 Eldridge Street

Posted on: March 26th, 2010 at 6:12 am by

It looks like some brokers are finally acknowledging the disdain for out-of-context glass towers which don’t add any character to the neighborhood.  This notion is utilized as a main selling point for a loft apartment at 193 Eldridge Street.

According to this Corcoran real estate listing, the fourth-floor walkup apparently gushes all sorts of “authenticity.”

Not into charmless, no character glass towers which are out of place in the historic Lower East Side? Discover this full floor, sexy and triple mint CONDO loft lovingly gut renovated with the best of everything. Authenticity gushes from the rough hewn beams adorning the 9 foot ceilings and the exposed brick walls. Custom lighting illuminates throughout, and the abundant closets and storage areas show the hand of a craftsman. A gas fireplace warms in the winter and central air cools in the summer. Bathroom features waterworks fixtures, a Bain Ultra Origami air jet tub and a radiant heated floor. There is a walk in closet/dressing room large enough for a home office as well. This is a fourth floor walk up with very low monthlies in an historic building with only 6 units. Pets are welcome.

Keep in mind, so-called authenticity comes with a hefty price tag.  A wallet-busting $1.325 million for 1,500 square feet.
