Toni Morrison’s Inspiring Tribeca Loft Lists for $4.75M

Novelist Toni Morrison received a plethora of prestigious awards during her lifetime, from the Nobel Prize to the Presidential Medal of Freedom. But perhaps it’s this prize she bought herself that gives the most insight into her life. Morrison purchased this light and book-filled Tribeca loft in 2014 and lived there until she passed away last year. Now it is on the market asking $4.75 million.

As artful and thoughtful as one would imagine, the bright abode has no shortage of shelves for a buyer’s favorite reads. It also seems to be just the right size with 2,319 square feet, not too big to get lost, but not too small to feel cramped. Add in the Manhattan skyline views and cozy gas fireplace, and all of this comes together as the perfect recipe for creating.

Though the condo technically has three bedrooms, Morrison converted the third into her writing room and library. As the place where a literary icon regularly put pen to paper, this is undoubtedly the most inspiring space in the spread.

Other spots buyers will fall in love with include the open living room and kitchen, and the master suite with a glamorous dressing area.

This exquisite listing at 66 Leonard Street has a legacy, stunning light, and endless beauty. Not to mention, it is perfectly set up for working from home. Amanda S. Brainerd, Simone Mailman, and Gerard Ryan of Brown Harris Stevens have the novel listing within a luxurious circa-1901 building.
