North by Northwest THE APARTMENT Open views north and west from the entertaining rooms of this outstanding corner Greenwich Village loft provide outstanding sunsets and nighttime skyline views of the Empire State Building, the Hudson River, from the midtown skyline and beyond The High Line. From the 36'x20' living room which is adjacent the 23'x16' dining room, there are nine oversized windows from which to relish the changing panoramas.
The living room benefits from abundant sunlight flowing in from north and west, a dramatic fireplace, and beautiful herringbone floors. Beside the living room is a formal dining room separated by two pocket doors which create privacy but allow light through their bamboo panes.
From the entry hall there is a coat closet on the right and a comfortable library or den on the left. Beside the living room is the eat-in kitchen which overlooks the entertaining space via an internal window that also features a sliding bamboo pane. At the intersection of the apartment's two main corridors lies a carved medallion on the floor inspired by Andrea Palladio's villa La Rotonda in Vicenza, Italy. This handsome apartment provides four bedrooms and three a half baths to the north, while the master suite and fourth full bath are positioned at the opposite end of the apartment, facing west to enjoy the sunsets. There is a large laundry room with shelving and storage space.
Spacious and elegant, the master suite includes a large dressing area with built-ins, the bedroom with a separate sitting area, an enormous walk-in closet with built-ins floor to ceiling, and finally the large master bath with stall shower.
Accented by circular chandeliers which hang above the curved outer walls of this apartment's corridors, this uncommonly large Greenwich Village condominium of approximately 4535sf has been meticulously renovated into an elegant residence with exceptional north and west views.
THE BUILDING Originally built in 1904 as a department store, The Greenwich has been transformed into a full-service pre-war luxury condominium in the heart of Greenwich Village. Converted in 2001 by Franke Gottesegen Cox Architects, this 12-story apartment building is comprised of 75 units and includes a doorman, concierge, basement storage and a large planted common roof garden with outstanding downtown views.
A recently completed state-of-the-art gym and children's play room is now available in the basement level.
