This is not your artsy Greenwich Village apartment of the beatnik era. The condo at 29 East 10th Street, which takes up the entire second floor, is more along the lines of “luxury loft living.” It has been renovated with custom lighting and exposed brickwork to accommodate the seller’s impressive, sometimes kooky, art collection. And it seems like unique design is a trend of the building, which is a former 19th century feather factory. Last year an impressive condo hit the market here asking $14.995 million. This new apartment is asking significantly less, priced at $3.95 million.
The living and dining rooms are designed almost like an art gallery with large, open spaces, 12-foot-tall ceilings, and a floor-to-ceiling wall of windows. The current owner put the walls–which are much more striking with the exposed brick–to good use. That artwork is definitely making a statement.
Although the kitchen looks slightly more traditional, there’s still an unusual chandelier prominently displayed. It’s outfitted with a granite dining island, granite counters, lots of cabinet space, a vented range and Subzero fridge. It even looks like there’s room to hang a big flat-screen TV.
Red walls and a carved wooden bed for the master bedroom? Why not! The medieval-style space comes with an en suite marble bath, a walk-in closet, and an attached den/office that has a wall of custom book shelves. (There’s even a built-in ladder to reach the highest shelves.) The current configuration of the apartment is for two, 25-foot-wide bedrooms. There is, however, another den space that could be used as a third bedroom.
On top of all of this space, the apartment is pretty much in the heart of the Village. You’re equal distance between Washington Square Park and Union Square, and all of the surrounding bars, businesses and restaurants will be at your fingertips. The listing says that the windows come with lovely “treetop and streetscape views.” If you’re looking for an apartment the embodies its surrounding neighborhood, this may be the one.
