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.
Just this August we took a glimpse inside an adorable East Village apartment at 217 2nd Avenue with not one, but two gardens. Now, the penthouse of the same building is on the market, asking $2.8 million; and just like its neighbor, this apartment charms from start to finish.
This full-floor condo manages to seamlessly blend old-world New York with rustic touches such as wide plank pine floors, vintage oak cabinets and a “lovingly worn” marble sink. Enter the home to find the industrial chic commercial grade kitchen with a skylight and a spiral staircase, which we’ll get to later.
