Loft lovers and perfectionists will covet this sprawling Greenwich Village condominium at 8 East 12th Street; it’s both spacious and luxurious, boasting handcrafted organic materials in custom-designed interiors and switched-on, “smart home” creature comforts high and low. For your $5.4 million, you’re getting location (near just about all the reasons you’d want to live downtown) and 2,330 square feet of painstakingly-created space for you to move in and enjoy. The current setup offers two bedrooms and 2.5 baths, but there’s enough space here for any combination–and all the bells and whistles are already installed.
The blogosphere was not impressed last year when they saw the contemporary brownstone conversion at 325 Degraw Street in Cobble Hill, calling the grey structure a “sad transformation.” And while the nondescript façade may pale in comparison to its neighboring historic homes, what lies beyond is an impressive 5,800-square-foot smart home, complete with over 800 square feet of outdoor space, a landscaped roof deck, and a basement media room. Known as the Light House, the modern mansion designed by architect James Anzalone has now found an owner, a couple who paid a hefty $6 million, according to city records released today.
