Occupying the entire parlor floor of an elevator building on one of the loveliest blocks in Greenwich Village, this pre-war co-op at 38 West 9th Street may be sweet, but it’s far from little; the same could be said of its $2.995 million ask. For that price you’ll get two good-sized bedrooms, and, looking at the floor plan, there’s plenty of room for a third with a little reconfiguration. There are also loads of charming and well-preserved architectural details in every room.
Central Park is usually hailed as the best New York park to live right off of. It definitely is one of the best, but that shouldn’t override another great NYC park–Washington Square Park. Downtown in Greenwich Village, you’ll get a whole different atmosphere consisting of performers, musicians, students, chess players and everyone else coming to hang around the park’s iconic fountain. Yes, it’s livelier and louder than Central Park, but if you’re looking for a co-op with a little more excitement and fun right outside, this apartment at 39 Washington Square South might fit the bill. It’s an impressive classic six unit that’s just hit the market for $2.75 million.
Starchitect César Pelli and his wife Diana Balmori have bought a $17.5 million apartment at the San Remo, according to city records released today. And the seller of the 4,900-square-foot, 12-room residence is Rona Maurer, John Leguizamo’s mother-in-law who was recently involved in a lawsuit claiming she was covering up the sale of the home to keep her stepdaughter from getting any of the profits.
The corner unit has all the details one would hope for from the Upper West Side‘s most prestigious co-op, including 65 feet of Central Park views, soaring ceilings, herringbone floors, three entertaining rooms, and a marble entry gallery.
Here’s another apartment unit up for sale in the pre-war co-op building University Mews, at 39 East 12th Street in Greenwich Village. Just last month, a lofty unit in the building hit the market for $1.595 million. This one has a much different vibe. The current owner outfitted it in some incredible and unique decor, which is accentuated by the 14-foot ceilings and large windows. Its asking price? The same as the last unit–$1.595 million.
Talk about quirky… this is a property you don’t see in Brooklyn every day. The unit in question is located at 429 7th Avenue, in Park Slope. It’s a duplex with a kooky sleeping loft instead of a bedroom, a unique layout, and a really nice private backyard. It’s not going to be for everyone but that outdoor space, plus a location two blocks west of Prospect Park, will certainly appeal to some. Don’t mind the idea of curling up in a loft to go to bed? Well, the apartment is now for sale by owner asking $629,000.
Who doesn’t love a classic six Manhattan apartment, especially with views of the park? This may not be Central Park, and this may not be a storied Upper East Side co-op building, but we’re still loving this apartment up for sale at La Touraine, a 24-unit prewar co-op at 50 Morningside Drive in Morningside Heights. It’s got stunning views of Morningside Park, not to mention a beautiful interior. The price isn’t cheap, but it’s certainly less than a classic six on the market with views of Central Park. The ask comes in at $1.05 million.
This Park Slope co-op at 348 12th Street, is by no means small–in fact, it has three bedrooms, which is sprawling when you compare it to most other Brooklyn co-op apartments. But there’s still something about it that feels cozy, homey, and just downright cute. This unit is also located in a modest eight-unit brick building that’s quite charming, in one of the loveliest areas of Park Slope. So how much for all this Brooklyn charm? It is now on the market for $1.175 million.
America’s sweetheart, actress Julia Roberts, is unloading her beachy Greenwich Village apartment, according to the Post. The listing, which is not yet public, is held by Stribling and describes a 2,000-square-foot, three-bedroom, three-bathroom co-op at postwar building 45 West 10th Street. Roberts bought the penthouse apartment for $3,895,400 in 2010 and now hopes to get $4.5 million for it.
In Brooklyn Heights, high-ticket real estate is usually a historic brownstone or townhouse. And while this co-op does reside on 105 Montague Street, in a circa-1885 Queen Anne building that was once a hotel, the interior is a lot more modern than you may expect. This top-floor penthouse unit takes advantage of the building’s striking roof line. You’ve got skylights, soaring cathedral ceilings, and thoroughly modern finishes. It’s all asking $1.75 million.
If we had to assign this Greenwich Village apartment to one of the “Sex and the City” gals it would have to be Charlotte for its classic and elegant design. But, in reality, it’s home to Candace Bushnell, the woman who wrote the newspaper column and book that inspired the world-famous show. The one-bedroom co-op at 45 East 9th Street was featured in Elle Decor in 2010 as a much more colorful and playful home. Two years later–following her divorce from New York City Ballet dancer Charles Askegard–she listed the place for $2.8 million and then as an $8,000/month rental. Now, three years later, the Observer reports that the listing is back with a very slight slight price chop to $2 million and its new formal look.
