This home is listed at $8,495,000 with Prudential Douglas Elliman.

DESCRIPTION: This stunning, full-floor TriBeCa loft offers wide open views of the Hudson River and 4000 beautifully renovated square feet. The key-locked elevator opens into a welcoming foyer with access to the powder room, laundry room and ample closets. In the grand living room, light and air abound thanks to six windows overlooking the Hudson River and Park as well as a large skylight overhead. The open chef's kitchen features tasteful, modern finishes including stainless steel Viking appliances, a black marble farm sink and a white, subway-tiled backsplash. In the library/media room, peruse titles on the custom-built contemporary maple bookshelves or enjoy warmth from the vintage wood burning stove. Perched atop the library is a glass-enclosed sunroom with elegant iron bannisters and access to the 1380 square feet of private outdoor roof space. The serene master bedroom is complemented by the soft palette of the en suite master bath, complete with a custom poured concrete sink and floors, freestanding porcelain soaking tub and an open shower. Two additional bedrooms, another full bath and large walk-in closets lie on the northern side of the home. Exposed brick walls, original wooden box beams, espresso stained floors and steel air ducts put the finishing touches on this quintessential downtown, prewar loft. 288 West is a 14 unit co-op, built in 1890 and converted in 1984.
