The Albert at 23 East 10th Street in Greenwich Village has a creative, bohemian history befitting the neighborhood. The one-time hotel is known for being frequented by musicians; the hit song “California Dreamin” by The Mamas and the Papas was reportedly written within its walls. This three-bedroom co-op, asking $3,250,000, continues the tradition in its current owner, film composer Dan Teicher. The pre-war home has been thoroughly updated while keeping details like high ceilings, exposed brick walls and archways, and decorative fireplaces intact.

Blending loft perfection and impeccable renovation, the transformed property features musician-friendly additions like an acoustically treated recording studio and a private office with a sleeping loft above, CitiQuiet windows, and a dropped ceiling.

Framed by rich walnut millwork the modern kitchen features a Miele range, a custom-paneled Liebherr fridge, a built-in espresso machine, a wine fridge, and quartz and Caesarstone countertops.

Next to the kitchen is the aforementioned acoustically-treated recording studio and private office. This fantastic bonus space brings the co-op beyond merely home and office. Suspended above the studio is a private loft/sleeping area that’s perfect for guest quarters–or clutter-busting storage.

A large primary bedroom is served by a capacious walk-in closet. An elegantly functional bed with a built-in headboard and side tables is framed by gold leaf wallpaper and a tiled mantlepiece. Additional 21st-century perks in this private sanctuary include remote-controlled electronic blackout shades, soundproofed pocket doors, and a bespoke wood slab barn door.

Built in 1882, The Albert was designed by the architectural firm of Henry J Hardenbergh, who also designed The Dakota and The Plaza. It became the Hotel Albert five years later in 1887.
