TV host Andy Cohen has bought a palatial West Village penthouse that boasts two floors of outdoor space. As first reported by the New York Post, the home sits atop 299 West 12th Street, a 17-story pre-war condominium built by iconic developer Bing & Bing and designed by Emery Roth. The home has nearly 3,000 square feet of interior space, along with roughly 2,000 square feet of terrace space that offers unique unobstructed city and Hudson River views. While it’s not yet known what Cohen, who lives on nearby Horatio Street, paid for the three-bedroom apartment, it was last listed for $18.3 million.
On the lower level, the living space is currently set up as four separate spaces, including a study, living room, formal dining room, and eat-in kitchen, as the listing describes. Classic French doors lead from the kitchen to the wraparound terrace, which directly faces the Freedom Tower, along with the rest of the Lower Manhattan skyline.
Another unique feature of this level is the magical solarium, which links the living room and the terrace and flaunts charming black and white tile floors. It’s currently set up as a home office. A wider part of the lower-level terrace is ideal for outdoor entertaining, with enough space for dining, lounging, or all of the above.
The great room, which features 14-foot ceilings and a fireplace, takes up most of the upper level. There is also a bedroom and full bath on this floor, but the space could be reimagined for “more contemporary use,” according to the listing.
A 750-square-foot terrace on the upper floor offers even better views than the one below it, with a 270-degree vantage point of the surrounding city.
Built in 1931, 299 West 12th Street is one of only two Downtown buildings developed collaboratively between Bing and Bing and Roth. The condominium sits across the street from Abingdon Square and is steps from some of the best restaurants, shops, and cultural institutions the city has to offer.
