Listing of the Day
Location: Greenwich Village, Manhattan
Price: $12 million
In Manhattan’s Greenwich Village, one of the historic neighborhood’s newer buildings is rising up from the corner of 12th Street and University Place. Known as 21 E 12, the building consists of 52 corner residences that rest on a landscaped podium. As one of just two residences located on that podium, Terrace Townhome 3B offers spacious gardens, which provide a secluded oasis in the heart of the city.
“This property offers a truly unique opportunity for a person to enjoy a townhome terrace style of living with an immense amount of outdoor space all while enjoying the services of a fully attended building,” said Richard Hicks of the Corcoran Group, who is the sales director of 21 E 12. “All of the windows that face the outdoor space are actually doors, so you can have this wonderful indoor/outdoor living experience.”
In addition to the large size of the outdoor space, the developer is delivering it finished. “The buyer will receive fully grown trees along the perimeter, which will offer a lot of privacy,” Mr. Hicks said. “In real estate, so many superlatives are affixed to properties that sometimes they just become noise, but this is truly something that is incredibly unique.”
The townhome has four bedrooms and four-and-a-half bathrooms. Its spacious 3,307 interior square footage is nearly matched by its 3,200 exterior square footage.
Designed by Annabelle Selldorf and Selldorf Architects, the architect’s well-known elegant minimalism is evident in meticulous details. The corner southeast facing master suite has large closets along with a dressing room, a five-fixture signature spa master bath lined with Bardiglio Lucca marble walls and heated flooring finished with Murano glass mosaic inlay. Secondary bathrooms are finished with Carrara marble and floor to ceiling Murano glass mosaic.
The open kitchen includes a dining island finished with Pietra Lavica stone. Custom European Valcucine cabinetry conceals a Sub-Zero refrigerator/freezer and Gaggenau dishwasher. The Gaggenau cooktop is fully-vented with a Selldorf Architecture designed custom hood.
Owners have access to a fitness center, a playroom, a lounge, a landscaped terrace and on-site parking.
Greenwich Village has plenty of amenities that appeal to well-heeled residents, as well as Old New York charm. The leafy neighborhood has several community gardens, which help it preserve its low-key, “everyone knows you” feel and picturesque charm. Convenient public transportation options abound, making it just as easy to head for the SoHo boutiques as it is the catch a play up on Broadway.
