ForbesApril 22, 2013This apartment in Greenwich Village is just a 1-bedroom, 1-bath, but where it lacks in space, it makes up in style. Designed and renovated by Oprah darling Nate Berkus, the West Village place was featured in O Magazine and was recently listed for sale at $699,000.
According to property records, Berkus bought the home in 2006 for $550,000, and he owns another home in New York — a larger, 3,000-square-foot property — that he picked up in 2011. The designer recently became engaged to his longtime boyfriend, Jeremiah Brent. The two bought a house in late 2012 in Hollywood Hills and may be calling the Golden State home for a while.
Located at 32 Downing St Apt 4D, New York, NY 10014 the western-facing apartment has “views of one of the most charming corners of the Village.”
Berkus’ updates to the home include a renovated kitchen with new appliances and a bathroom with Carrera marble floors, white subway tile and vintage hardware.
The listing is held by Emily Beare of CORE. A monthly payment for the apartment would be $2,460, assuming a 20 percent down payment on a 30-year mortgage.
