The condominium at 495 West Street in the West Village is known for having an exceedingly low turnover rate: Residents rarely leave. Built in 1999 by architect-developer Cary Tamarkin, the building’s lofts were given generous floorplans and big-shouldered details like sixteen-foot-high casement windows. Today, it’s still coveted, due in no small part to its wide-sprawling layouts and fabulous Hudson River views. This 1,988-square-foot loft with 776 square feet of private outdoor space, currently asking $3.995 million, is the first unit in the building to be on the market since 2004.
Uncommon design and keen attention to detail and materials set this unusual loft apart. You’ll find the custom Boffi kitchen and bath and Gaggeneau and Miele appliances that are standard in luxury condos, but here they’re paired with concrete, raw steel, stone slab, stainless steel, Marmorino Venetian plaster and massive steel casement windows and doors.
The master bathroom–it’s so big we thought it was the kitchen–has a lap-pool-sized tub and floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the home’s private garden.
The master bedroom is larger than most city studios; sliding aluminum and Lightblocks walls separate the bedroom from the living area.
You’ll also find customized closet and storage systems, motorized remote controlled shades, Sonos and Wisdom integrated digital audio, video and networking systems, Runtal commercial radiators, a wireless business phone system and a separate private laundry/ utility room. You might even forget you’re in an intimate nine-unit condominium building with a 24-hour doorman standing guard.
