    If you have $5 million to throw around and are looking to up your work-from-home game—by a lot—then this is for you: the beautiful loft in Tribeca that Toni Morrison lived in until her death last year is up for sale and could be yours.

    Designed by the architect who brought New York City the Plaza Hotel and the famed Dakota building, the apartment is priced at $4.75 million. Read this description, possibly the most soothing collection of words that 2020 has given us, from Variety:

    The loft’s clean-lined and carefully unadorned architecture is softened with gently worn antiques, plush upholstered sofas, an eclectic smattering of artworks and, of course, books, lots and lots of books. The comfortably commodious main living space stretches forty feet from end to end. Just off the main entrance, the kitchen anchors one end of the space, while the other end has a simply designed fireplace as its focal point.

    Of course, you would have to pay a monthly fee of $2,350 for maintenance and another $2,500 each month in taxes. For now, maybe photos are enough.
