It only took nine years and a $10 million price chop, but the notoriously-hard-to-sell townhouse at 400 West Street has finally found a buyer for $14.5 million, reports the Post.
Husband-and-wife design team Bob and Cortney Novogratz bought the West Village townhouse for $4.3 million back in 2007, and then undertook a complete renovation, adding an indoor basketball court, eight-person elevator, and insane rooftop terrace complete with a pizza oven and hot tub. All these amenities, coupled with the colorful and funky decor, caught the eye of Heidi Klum, who rented the home several times over the years, most recently for $70,000/month this past summer.
The 7,200-square-foot townhouse has five bedrooms, four-and-a-half baths, and 1,900 square feet of outdoor space.
The ground floor boasts a private garage with a Richards Woods mural, a mosaic entry hall and mudroom, and a gym with the aforementioned basketball court that converts to a screening room.
On the floor above, you’ll find an open kitchen and dining room and the spectacular living room with a massive retractable glass door that opens to the terrace.
On the third floor is the giant master suite, complete with an en-suite bath and huge closet.
There’s also four bedrooms spread across the fourth and fifth floors, all of which span the entire 22.75-foot width of the residence, brining in tons of natural light “from the home’s triple-plated, virtually soundproof, angled floor-to-ceiling windows,” as 6sqft previously described.
Now for the rooftop. Here you’ll find a teak hot tub, wood-burning fireplace with a built-in television above, and a fully-equipped kitchen that comes with a wood-burning pizza oven, gas barbecue grill, wine cooler, beer tap, and fridge.
The Post reports that an overseas buyer scooped up the townhouse, paying $14.5 million. The asking price began at $25 million back in 2009 and was most recently listed for $15.95 million.
