Greenwich Village Duplex Penthouse with Loft

Unveiling a captivating blend of old-world charm and modern luxury, this duplex penthouse loft is a testament to timeless sophistication in the heart of Greenwich Village. Newly renovated in 2020, this 1,600 SF+/- one-bedroom residence with a flex space and two bathrooms offers an unparalleled living experience in a pre-war building.

Situated within the historic University Mews Co-Op, a prewar gem originally constructed in 1900 as a factory, this eight-story building exudes character. With a 24-hour doorman, live-in super, and full-time porter, the co-op offers the utmost convenience. Residents can also enjoy shared amenities, including a common roof deck, central laundry, and two elevators. The residence’s central location in Greenwich Village provides quick access to nearby markets, shops, and restaurants with Union Square, and Washington Square Park just moments away. The vibrant surroundings and easy access to transportation hubs make it an ideal home for those seeking the perfect blend of urban living and historic charm.

The main level welcomes you with southern exposure, illuminated by three extra-large arched windows and three skylights, ensuring the space is bathed in natural light throughout the day. The original arched windows, cast-iron columns, and barrel-vaulted ceilings ranging from 11’ to 17’ infuse the space with character. White maple floors complement the exposed brick, creating a warm and inviting atmosphere. The open chef’s kitchen boasts top-of-the-line appliances and finishes including, Piatto Black Caesarstone countertops, a Miele dishwasher and gas stove, Wolf microwave, a Sub-Zero refrigerator, and a U-Line wine refrigerator. The state-of-the-art primary bathroom is equipped with a soaking tub, and custom closet and storage spaces add a touch of practical luxury.

The centerpiece of the residence is a custom-designed steel and natural maple staircase, illuminated by a large hip-ridge skylight, leading to the rooftop oasis. Ascend the staircase and enjoy unobstructed North, East, and Southern views of iconic NYC landmarks, including the Empire State Building, Woolworth Building, and Con Edison Building. The private roof deck is fully equipped with a detachable screen, outdoor speakers, volume control, and AV block. Crafted with Ipe wood and lush landscaping, the deck also features built-in benches and a discreet large shed-like storage unit. Additional technology within the residence includes a Lutron lighting system and Sonos sound system throughout, ensuring a convenient and modern living experience.

This Greenwich Village duplex penthouse loft is more than a home; it’s an invitation to relish in the harmonious marriage of classic and contemporary living.
