Our dream of owning New York City's "steampunk loft" has come to an end, when news broke that the property was (finally) under contract. Though we were huge fans of the loft's psychedelic, steampunk-inspired decor (we even did a video on it), it seems that the owner's decision to strip it of its steampunk theme was for the better.
Last December, owner Jeremy Noritz re-listed the loft with a serious make-under -- although if you look closely, you can still see subtle little remnants of the apartment's old steampunk days. (The kitchen, for example, still boasts repurposed wrenches as kitchen handles). It's now under contract, the property's listing agent, Nikki Beauchamp, confirmed to AOL Real Estate. The success, she says, can be credited largely to the fact that potential buyers were finally able to see beyond the home's crazy furnishings.
"Following the transformation, we saw an increase in inquiries and open-house traffic," Beauchamp said. "[Interested parties] mentioned several times that they had been tracking the apartment online, and the change was a deciding factor to revisit considering the apartment." No word on how much exactly it was sold for, but it's most recent listed price was $1.59 million. It's still fun to reminisce about its glory days, however! See the "Inside Look" episode we did on the loft last year below.
