It’s hard to believe this customizable penthouse at 481 Greenwich Street has been having a rough time on the market since January 2013. The striking duplex, asking $10.75 million, is the definition of luxury loft living in one of downtown Manhattan’s hottest new neighborhoods, no less. There are quite a few details that set this loft apart from the rest, but we’ll start with the sheer enormity of its size. We’re talking 4,500 square feet of interior space and an additional 3,000 square feet of multi-level rooftop terrace. Add to that floor-to ceiling windows and Hudson River views and you just might find yourself experiencing love at first sight.
As you’re walking in the midst of the hustle and bustle of Union Square, it might not occur to you that you’re just paces away from a rather gorgeous retreat waiting to be someone’s home or pied-a-terre. But just a few blocks from the thriving landmark, one such adorable unit at 49 East 12th Street has popped up on the market, asking $1.795 million.
