You know you’ve found “the one” when you find yourself searching online for artwork to hang on its gallery-sized walls. Our guess is this Greenwich Village co-op at 7 East 9th Street was combined from two units: unit 2R (a large $4.1 million duplex), and 2F (a smaller $900,000 unit). The end result is a massive, $11 million, two- or three-bedroom duplex with sky high 13-foot ceilings, exquisite finishes, and northern and southern light.
Enter directly into the sunken main living space of this apartment, which features gorgeous moldings, a working fireplace, and hardwood floors. A set of four Ionic columns and a bold wall color in the dining room allows for an open flow while still creating distinct living and dining areas. A few steps take you up to the eat-in kitchen, which has booth seating, a breakfast terrace, high-end appliances, and wood cabinets. Then, behind the kitchen is an oversized den with a fireplace that can easily double as a third bedroom.
Both of the second-floor bedrooms have a private entrance and en suite bath, essentially creating two master suites. The bedroom at the top of the northern staircase might be a tad more masterful, considering it has an entire wall of storage, a slightly larger five-piece bath, and a private outdoor terrace.
7 East 9th Street is a five-story co-op built back in 1838 and situated just off Fifth Avenue. The walk-up apartment is outfitted with a built in top-of-the-line Crestron sound system and a state-of-the-art security system.
