The classic, 3,851-square-foot space features three bedrooms and three bathrooms. The building itself dates back to 1882, but the apartment has been restored with wooden beams and columns -- beautifully blending old-school New York with modern conveniences.

The loft, which is located in the same neighborhood where Danes grew up, offers ample living spaces and direct elevator access. Plus, there's a rotating breakfast bar, which apparently is meant to give Danes extra space in the kitchen -- maybe to rehearse lines for her latest movie or to make homemade marshmallows. By the way, the home also once boasted a swing in the living room. (Oh, how the 1 percent live!)

Elaine Schweninger of Town Real Estate has the listing.
