In this relaxed and unpretentious home that embodies West Village living at its best, a to-the-studs renovation created an elegant and minimalist backdrop for stunning views clear up Eighth Avenue to Columbus Circle.
If you can divert your focus from the spectacular vista, you will find a home that is tastefully-designed with an eye toward function and minimalism. Attention to detail is evident throughout: from the hidden Soss hinges in the floor-to-ceiling doors to the handsome wood shelving in the custom closets. The serene bathroom soothes you with its blue glass mosaic tile and custom lighting. In the bedroom, the north view is supplemented by a western exposure that provides a peek at the Hudson and allows beautiful late afternoon light to stream in. Bask in the glow as you curl up with a good book or gaze at the nighttime panorama and the lights up Eighth Avenue.
The kitchen is a haven for the home cook, with a suite of high-end appliances (Sub-Zero, Meile, Gaggenau), custom cabinetry, and a large floor-to-ceiling pantry. It has everything you need to whip up a great meal after a quick stop at the nearby Abingdon Square greenmarket or Chelsea market. The large quartz island is a natural hub for entertaining. You’ll savor the memories of times gathered around this space with friends, enjoying a few bottles of wine and toasting to life.
Upstairs is a lushly-planted roof deck, with fresh herbs available all summer long from the bountiful community herb garden and a hammock to relax after work on a summer night.
The Van Gogh, a full-service, pet-friendly co-op with 24-hour doormen, central laundry, storage, bike storage and filtered water, allows limited subletting after 2 years of residency and considers co-purchases and pied-a-terres on a case-by-case basis. It is supremely situated at the crossroads of Greenwich Village, Chelsea and the Meatpacking District, offering easy access to public transportation and every convenience of city life: coffee shops and juice bars line the border of Jackson Square Park across the street, Equinox is around the corner, and restaurants and shopping abound in every direction.
As the flowers bloom on The Highline and the Whitney Museum settles in at its new downtown home nearby, this prime location is having a moment.
Step into this serene and special home. Bask in the glow of the afternoon sun. As you absorb the energy of this dynamic neighborhood and stand, mesmerized by the extended vista that lies before you, recognize that your moment has arrived. Seize it.
