Rooms with a View: Sprawling West Village Penthouse Hits the Market for the First Time at $12.25M

June 5, 2014

Virtually every inch of this distinctively laid out 3,600-square-foot duplex at 140 Charles Street showcases some of New York’s most coveted views: the Empire State Building, Chrysler Building, Freedom Tower, Statue of Liberty, Brooklyn Bridge, and Hudson River unfold before you in all their majestic splendor.

It’s no wonder this home hasn’t been on the market since it was built as part of the The Memphis Downtown (designed by RKTB Architects) in 1985.

Perched on the 21st and 22nd floors of the West Village’s tallest condominium, this dramatic residence was professionally designed by award-winning architect Henry Myerberg, founder of HMA2, and those exterior views are yours forever thanks to the visionary work of the Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation.

We can pretty much guarantee you’ll spend plenty of time enjoying the scenery from one of six separate outdoor spaces (totaling approx. 1100 square feet), including a 90′ terrace that wraps from the eastern corner of the living room across the entire northern section of the building to the west and south.

But even when you’re inside, the twenty-two massive windows and seven floor-to-ceiling glass walls will make you feel like you’re floating high above Manhattan — and it starts the moment you exit the key-locked elevator onto your private landing with an 18’ tall x 9’ wide wall of glass before you. We have one word for that kind of an entrance – breathtaking!

With five intricately designed wood-burning fireplaces, an eat-in-kitchen, media room and generous closet space throughout, this 4BR/4.5BA home provides the ultimate setting for your living and entertaining comfort. And its prime West Village location on a gorgeous tree-lined street means you’re a stone’s throw away from some of the best the city has to offer –  parks, museums, restaurants and shopping, all waiting for you to tear yourself away from those magnificent 360 degree panoramic views!
