Perched just above the trees on the 8th floor, Residence 8A at 130 West 12th Street, part of the highly sought-after Greenwich Lane development in Greenwich Village is an exquisite classic four bedroom, three bath home. This is the most desired 4-bedroom 3-bath layout available, and affords the utmost feeling of home in an unrivaled amenity-rich complex.
The gracious flow of entertaining space, abundant inpouring of light from custom oversized Art Deco inspired thermal casement windows, and upscale finishes adorning the expansive interior all highlight this prewar showplace apartment.
Custom doors lead into a large entry foyer and gallery with art walls that introduce an ambience of architectural elegance, reflected by high beamed ceilings, chevron patterned hardwood flooring, custom cove and casing elements, custom lighting and other distinctive features. The spacious living/dining room and beautiful white chef's kitchen with large center island and top- of- the line appliances face onto the charming tree-lined 12th street, clearing over the tops of the neighboring townhouses with a view of the Empire State Building. The third and fourth bedrooms function well as a den, library or bedroom.
The quiet bedroom wing comprised of a master suite and generously-sized guest bedroom faces south over townhouse gardens and also offers views of The Freedom Tower. Glamorizing the master suite is a spacious step-down bedroom, huge fitted walk-in closet, and spa-like Waterworks tile bath with a double-sink vanity, soaking tub, oversized glass shower and radiant-heated floors. Extensive closet space is complemented by private storage that comes with the apartment.
The LEED-Gold certified Greenwich Lane has been meticulously reconceived for contemporary living, bringing the benefits of sustainable design to the elegance of prewar architecture. Additional highlights include UV filtering windows, a washer-dryer, plus state-of-the-art HVAC, water and air filtration systems.
