Previously owned by 2 sculptors and an archaeologist, 870 45th Avenue is now looking for its newest artistically adventurous occupant. The home is billed as a "residence and studio" although from looking at the photos it's hard to tell where one ends and the other begins. The entire places has the sort of romantic art studio vibe that neobohemians flock to: Beat up floors;, wide open spaces, "unique" custom finishes— and bonus unfinished room. At almost $900,000, starving artists need not apply, but with 3 bedrooms and 2.5 baths, this home might be the perfect place to start that commune you've been planning since grad school. Bonus culture linkage: See the gallery for what we can only assume are examples of previous tenants' work.
