AC/DC Bassist Cliff Williams’ Former West Village Condo Is Back on the Market for $3M

This two-bedroom condominium in a chic and adorably urban corner of the West Village at 63 Downing Street looks a lot like an apartment a model or actress buys after she gets her first big gig (though in that context the ask is pretty steep; what kind of world is it when starter model apartments are selling for $3M?). She’ll move in with a boyfriend soon thereafter, and rent the pad out for a few years. Then if she’s done well, she’ll make celebrity real estate headlines when she sells it and buys a big loft in Williamsburg or Bushwick. There are a lot of models and actresses out there, so this sunny downtown pad with almost as much outdoor space as indoor should be snapped up in no time.

Apparently, it’s the kind of apartment that elder statesman rockers with plenty of cash buy, too, because AC⚡️DC bassist Cliff Williams owned this unit with his wife Georganne for nine years before selling it in 2013 for $2.3 million—well over the $1.89M ask (the couple have a daughter who’s a model and actress, so it all fits somehow). Williams made a killing selling his Fort Myers, Florida mansion for $7 million about a year ago, so there’s something to be said for his real estate karma.

Among the highlights of this second-floor unit are the two private terraces adding up to about 850 square feet of private outdoor space–and doors that lead to said terrace space from almost every room, plus big windows and plenty of sun. Inside, things haven’t been neglected either. Interiors have been upgraded with high-end finishes throughout.

The large custom-designed chef’s kitchen’s star is a massive many-burnered Viking stove, plus a SubZero refrigerator and Bosch dishwasher, all just steps from the deck.

The light-filled master bedroom suite features gets custom California Closets and windows that overlook both terraces. An opulent master bath rocks custom-designed mosaic marble tiles and lots of other marble surrounding a luxurious oversized whirlpool tub (and whoever staged this apartment gets major points for that soap bar wrapped in color-popping lime).

The prettiest room of all may be the second bedroom (or guest room, or music studio–with a lot of soundproofing); and you just can’t beat all that outdoor space, enough for throwing big al fresco dinner parties–or an ad hoc rock concert or two.
