Living in Greenwich Village comes at a premium regardless of size, so the $18,500,000 ask for a 7,198-square-foot townhouse at 9 Minetta Street comes as no surprise. For that jumbo price tag, you get mansion-sized measurements and an over-the-top collection of perks rarely found in Manhattan real estate. The contemporary townhouse spans seven floors, with a garage below and an elevator accessing all levels. The new construction home is topped with a rooftop retreat with a hot tub, and there’s a rear garden with a water wall.
The four-bedroom home is the only one of its kind in the Greenwich Village Historic District. The city extended the South Village Historic District to Minetta Street in 2013, a year after the project at 9 Minetta Street was approved, allowing work to proceed. It’s likely the last new development to be permitted in this district.
The ground floor offers a large family room, complete with a stunning fireplace; the space connects to an outdoor garden with a soothing water feature. It is here where the future owners will enjoy family gatherings, business meetings or host cocktail parties and receptions.
State-of-the-art interiors include ERCO gallery lighting, floating stairs, and a home automation system that controls built-in speakers, lighting, temperature control, security, and automated shades.
Living space begins at the garden level with a double-height parlor anchored by a modern gas fireplace. Floor-to-ceiling windows overlook lush outdoor spaces and underscore the townhouse experience. Throughout are radiant-heated Brazilian walnut floors. This level opens out into a landscaped garden with bamboo plantings and a water wall feature.
The second floor gets down to business with a kitchen anchored by a 20-foot island and a marble fireplace. High-end highlights include a Sub-Zero wine refrigerator and Miele coffee station, two sinks, three ovens, and two dishwashers. The dining area is also on this floor.
The third floor offers an intimate living room, music room, and office; any of these spaces could become additional bedrooms–or anything else that fits your needs. There’s a powder room on each of the lower floors.
The fourth floor offers three bedrooms and a laundry room. Spacious baths–one is ensuite–feature walk-in showers and soaking tubs.
The fifth floor is a luxurious private retreat, featuring a 55-foot-long primary suite. The bedroom is served by a windowed dressing room with bespoke closets, and a suitably spacious bath with all the trimmings.
Above the townhouse is a dreamy rooftop garden paradise with a hot tub/soaking pool, an outdoor kitchen, and built-in benches. An audio and lighting system turns the garden into an entertaining wonderland.
This one-of-its-kind modern city mansion is anchored by a private garage on the gallery level, where you’ll find the elevator landing for convenient access to the floors above.
