This three-bedroom pre-war condominium at 59 West 12th Street in Greenwich Village starts with the cachet of being in a sought-after building known as The Governor, built by celebrated 20th-century developers Bing and Bing and designed by noted architect Emery Roth. Asking $5,990,000, this renovated residence has quietly elegant architectural details, gracious proportions, thoughtfully-designed updates–and enough closets to suit a diva with red carpet ambitions and a lifetime of Met Gala costumes.

Enter the 10th-floor aerie into a classic gallery framed by Venetian plaster walls, tall beamed ceilings, herringbone-patterned wood floors, and a hall closet. A classic Manhattan living room abuts a spacious-yet-cozy dining room; both look out over the townhouses of 12th Street and the skyline beyond. A working fireplace with a Chesney marble mantle provides both visual and literal warmth.

A windowed galley kitchen has a classic Manhattan apartment layout. Cabinets are done in warm wood, countertops are black granite, and appliances are up-to-date and top-of-the-line, including a Viking range, Bosch dishwasher, SubZero refrigerator, and separate wine refrigerator.

Access the home’s tranquil primary bedroom through a hallway lined with enough custom mahogany closets for four seasons worth of finery; the chamber itself is a massive 23 feet in length, with another working fireplace, built-in dressers, and stunning city vistas. A vast mahogany walk-in closet is room-sized and customized. The suite’s windowed bath has radiant heated floors, double sinks, a marble-clad walk-in shower and Venetian plaster walls.

Two lesser bedrooms are impressive nonetheless. All have en-suite baths and capacious walk-ins.

Modern upgrades include a Lutron lighting system, individually zoned A/C, a sound system with in-wall speakers, and motorized shades. In addition to the rare combination of pre-war charm and condominium convenience, the building offers a full-time doorman, resident manager, storage, bike storage, a laundry room, and a children’s playroom. Pets and pieds-a-terre are welcome.
