$2.8M Greenwich Village Gem in Sought-After Butterfield House Features Non-Traditional ‘Walls’

March 5, 2015

Greenwich Village has long been known for its charming nineteenth and early twentieth century architecture, part of what makes it one of the city’s most sought after locations. But sprinkled in amongst the classic townhouses are a number of tastefully designed post-war structures that have earned their own reputation as highly desirable residential abodes.

With a series of handsome and deep bay windows dotting its façade and a lovely glass arcade connecting its two buildings, Butterfield House is one example of modern architecture that fits seamlessly into the fabric of the Village–and where you’ll find this gut-renovated (2012) and absolutely gorgeous two-bedroom apartment.

Situated at 37 West 12th Street in the Butterfield’s landmarked southern portion and overlooking its tranquil gardens and fountains, this wonderfully proportioned residence on one of the loveliest blocks in the city offers the epitome of modern luxury. The sizable entry foyer is as elegant and welcoming as they come, with a whimsical bird cage-like “candled” chandelier and a stunningly dark wood parquet floor that runs throughout the home.

The large living/dining area features two non-traditional “walls,” one comprised of criss-crossed three-dimensional rectangles and the other made almost entirely of glass and looking out to the enclosed terrace, where louvered floor-to-ceiling windows let you control just how much of the elements you want to let in.

The ultra modern chef’s kitchen is right out of the pages of a magazine, with an intricate backsplash tile pattern that is replicated on the kitchen walls, an abundance of cabinet storage and counter space, and a poured concrete island that almost looks too beautiful to eat on.

Built-in dressers literally surround the master, which also boasts a huge walk-in closet and its own private bath. The second bedroom, which at 160 square feet is enormous by city standards, is currently being used as an office/library and features opposing walls of dark wood shelving and matching dark shutters on its two extra tall windows.
