Every New Yorker wants two things: a great apartment and a convenient location. Well, there’s a new $3.95 million listing available at 9 West 20th Street, right off the Ladies’ Mile, which means you can shop and eat to your heart’s content, then head home to the comfort and luxury of this mint-condition loft.
Hop on the private keyed elevator and up to the 11th floor to enter directly into the spacious 2,154-square-foot pad. A giant 25 x 50-foot entertainment space greets you with all the classic loft essentials—soaring 10.7-foot ceilings, hardwood floors, exposed pipes and six oversized windows giving it the ideal bright, airy vibe. A renovated kitchen with top-tier appliances completes the space with stone countertops and a custom backsplash. But this entertainment space has a few additional surprises for the discerning New York buyer. For instance, you can enjoy the view while you wash dishes thanks to another west-facing window over the kitchen sink. The large island is perfect for extra storage. And if you chose to order out for dinner—or anything else—deliveries can enter through the freight elevator.
Back in the sleeping quarters, the large master suite stuns with a spacious dressing room boasting two walls of closets for all your shopping spoils, and a windowed five-fixture bath. The bedroom is lined with windows offering northern exposures, while a separate corner window provides some eastern light. The generous room is large enough for a king-sized bed and a sitting area, and built-ins offer even more coveted storage—the New Yorker’s Hope diamond. A second bedroom comes complete with a fully outfitted closet and a newly renovated bathroom.
9 West 20th Street is a prewar boutique condominium in the Flatiron district that can serve as a primary residence or a pied-à-terre. Residents enjoy central air, a washer and dryer in the unit and an accommodating super. And if you’re still on the fence, just ask Fido. The pet-friendly building is just blocks from Madison Square Park and its exhilarating dog run.
