Ann Dexter-Jones, British-born socialite, jewelry designer, mom to the Ronson clan, and once-again wife of Foreigner’s Mick Jones (the pair married 32 years ago, divorced in 2007 and recently remarried) just put her chic three-bedroom Village co-op on the market (h/t New York Post). The 2,075-square-foot home at 42 West 9th Street in the coveted “Gold Coast” neighborhood off lower Fifth Avenue, asking $4.995 million, has a townhouse vibe and plenty of character. Four wood-burning fireplaces, 11-foot ceilings, and pre-war details can be found throughout, in a building with more amenities than a townhouse.
A big, light-filled living space is perfect for both family life and entertaining, with herringbone parquet floors, a fireplace, those high ceilings and window seats that look out on the Village streetscape.
Downstairs, the dining room gets another fireplace plus wide-plank woodfloors and custom cabinetry. Adjacent is a marble-clad chef’s kitchen with all the trimmings.
With a separate wing for much-needed privacy, a serene master suite gets a pair of fireplaces; another bedroom and bath are tucked away here as well.
Down a short flight of stairs, a cool but life-proof rec room looks ready for entertaining, work or family fun.
Build in 1882, The Portsmouth has been referred to as the “Downtown Dakota,” offering an attended–and recently restored–lobby, a package and bicycle room and a new elevator.
