Last June, 6sqft reported that pop siren Taylor Swift was renting a carriage house at 23 Cornelia Street in the West Village for $40,000 a month while the Tribeca penthouse she’d purchased was undergoing a $535,000 renovation. The 1912 brick carriage house, which features a swimming pool, an elevator and a private garage, is now on the market for $24.5 million. The renovated home, owned by Soho House executive David Aldea who purchased it for $5.3 million in 2005, also boasts five bedrooms and several terraces in addition to its idyllic location and historic charm.
The 5,400 square-foot single-family townhouse has plenty of dramatic architectural details both historic and new, including double-height ceilings, a white marble staircase and three original fireplaces. Each of two master bedrooms has a private terrace and the property’s entire rooftop is decked-out and party-ready with spectacular views of the city.
The drama starts on the ground floor with a fitness room, a full bath and a 30-foot-by-15-foot, 5.5-foot deep pool and lounge with basalt stone tile floors throughout and double-height 27-foot ceilings above. The lounge area also features gallery walls and a gas fireplace, and it opens onto a patio.
The home’s first floor features that rare city asset: A 13-foot-wide private garage. Also on this floor is a studio/guest suite with a full bath.
The second floor is packed with design details starting with high beamed ceilings in the living room. You’ll also find Russian ipe wood floors, leaded glass windows, a chandelier and a wood-burning fireplace with a marble hearth. The renovated kitchen has a Wolf dual-fuel range, SubZero fridge and wine fridge, Fisher & Paykal double-drawer dishwasher and granite countertops. Dining room walls are lined with antique bricks from Paris and lit by a Murano chandelier and Lalique light fixtures. Also on this floor is a private bedroom/home office suite with a separate entrance.
On the next floor are double master suites with north- and south-facing terraces, one with custom floor-to-ceiling windows and a large closet, another (the “grand master”) with high ceilings, a chandelier and a dual sink bathroom with two entrances. Also on this floor is a separate bathing area with marble floors connected to a private terrace with an outdoor gas fireplace. The home’s rooftop doesn’t disappoint, outfitted with a terrace featuring an outdoor kitchen with a built-in grill and a Jacuzzi, plus views of the West Village streets below.
