An urban penthouse loft in the heart of Northern Liberties hit the market late last week, asking $639,000 for two bedrooms and two bathrooms.
The uber-modern open layout, on the top floor of the Cigar Factory at 1147 N. Fourth St., has all the hallmarks of modern city digs: Exposed brick and wooden beams, tons of natural light, high ceilings and funky steel work around the slanted ceilings.
But our favorite part of this house might be the master bathroom suite: From emerald wall complemented by grey tiles to a luxurious soaking tub at center stage, this room was designed with relaxation in mind.
Built-in custom closets act as barriers between the master bedroom and the main living space, where the bulk of your ooh-ing and ahh-ing will take place with the 180-degree views of the city and skyline from oversized windows. Head into the customized kitchen area perfect for the home chef with top-of-the-line appliances like a Sub-Zero fridge and a Wolf flat-top range; or sit around the black and grey marble island for the morning coffee from your espresso maker.
A bi-level loft, this apartment's upstairs features a second bedroom or additional office space, where vaulted ceilings and skylights complement the main floor below.
