This sleek and civilized condo at 25 West Houston Street was the long-time Soho residence of musician and fashion powerhouse Kanye West and his wife, Kim Kardashian. Designed by Italian minimalist architect and designer Claudio Silvestrin, the home is a study in tobacco and beige, guaranteed not to upstage the personality of its owners. And like its (former) owners, it has been showcased in the pages of Vogue and Elle Décor. The 2,427-square-foot Soho one-bedroom (easily convertible to two) just hit the market for $4.7 million.
A long and sinuous foyer, illuminated by soft lighting, features carefully hidden storage that’s guaranteed to soothe rather than provoke. This clever hallway leads to a vast living area with dual exposures and city views.
The kitchen/living/dining rooms meet, ideal for entertaining. Ceilings of nearly 10 feet frame the space and make a great backdrop for art and fame of any scale.
The kitchen features pearwood cabinetry and French limestone flooring. Anchored by a monolithic stone island, the space is clad in the same soothing natural hues found throughout the home. Behind the flawless facade, Subzero and Miele appliances and a customized Gaggenau cooktop stand ready.
The master suite is as serene as it is spacious and organic, with another natural stone island in the bath. Ample closet space is a given, and radiant heat floors provide warmth underfoot. Additional tech perks include a smart home system by Savant that includes automated window shades, custom lighting and audio wired throughout, and a washer/dryer in unit.
The apartment–formerly two units combined into one–is currently configured as a one-bedroom, but, as mentioned, it could easily be converted to add another. Building amenities include a 24-hour doorman and a landscaped rooftop deck with 360-degree views of downtown Manhattan.
