Artist Michael Somoroff’s Unique SoHo Loft Is For Sale for the First Time in 25 Years
Art collectors comb galleries and auctions for special pieces to acquire such as original paintings, sculptures, and photographs. But, it’s not often one finds a masterpiece made by an artist that you can live in. This full-floor SoHo loft, owned and designed by conceptual artist, director, and photographer Michael Somoroff with help from architect Stephen Wanta, presents that $5.495 million opportunity.
Listed for the first time in 25 years, the New York City dwelling is pretty impossible to recreate. It took three years to finalize the design of the home, according to a rep for SERHANT., and all the special details speak for themselves. Somoroff, who has contributed to magazines like Vogue, Life, and Time, clearly had a vision.
Weaved within the 2,500-square-foot loft’s main living spaces, you’ll see Italian Marmoline sculptural volumes. Each was handcrafted on-site by artisans and stands in harmony with the turn-of-the-century building’s cast-iron columns. This mix of industrial and postmodern styles is something that is a common theme throughout the home.
Other areas that deserve special attention include the library, which has a stage raised before it for entertaining or impromptu party performances. The three bedrooms also have surprises in store. For example, the primary has an in-ground jacuzzi soaking tub just steps from the bed. Meanwhile, one of the other bedrooms has a bathroom with imaginative ceiling lights.
One of only five units at 112 Prince Street, this loft would be a prize for an art collector’s portfolio. Katie Thurber and Elizabeth Scandiffio of SERHANT. have the listing.
