Location: New York, N.Y.
The Skinny: High atop a nondescript historic building in NYC's East Village lies a former concert hall that has been transformed into an extravagant floor-through loft apartment by a photographer, who is professionally obsessed with documenting human interactions with animals. He could fit a whole herd of elephants in the great room, known as Beethoven Hall, which boasts 32-foot arched ceilings and windows that date to the 1860 construction. Ten additional rooms complete the listing, including four bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, an updated kitchen, another living room, and a loggia. A 420-square-foot terrace provides ample outdoor entertaining space. The current owner paid some $6M for the space back in 2004, but is now asking a whopping $25M.
