This spectacular one-of-a-kind 5,307 sf - 5 bedroom - 5.5 bathroom penthouse residence at The Greenwich Lane on West 12th Street is located in the heart of Greenwich Village. A private parking spot in the building is included. This apartment was transformed into a stunning home by the renown Studio Shamshiri, who opened the apartment up and pared things down to create a clean, but warm and modern space. This penthouse is among the largest and best in the entire building. This home, which has one of the best laid floor plans, is a rare and very special offering that is up for sale for the first time. It's a must-see for those with a rather discerning and elevated taste level.
Inspiration for the home was pulled from British architect William Smalley, specifically seen in the wood paneling and baseboards. The millwork throughout was inspired by Shaker designs and the playroom was inspired by Inezand Vinoodh's Manhattan loft. Other references were pulled from contemporaries including Vincent Van Duysen, Plain English, and the Rivertown Lodge in upstate New York, designed by the firm Workstead.
Design highlights include 16' Dinesen Douglas Fir flooring, 30' sofa by Commune for George Smith, the yellow kitchen with hand-painted BBDW tiles, lighting by Apparatus, and the custom Donald Judd inspired bookshelves. The home is impeccable to the eye, yet very comfortable to live in. There are many quiet details to enjoy from the custom Nanz hardware to the bespoke BDDW tiles in the kitchen. There is plenty of custom millwork throughout starting with a very powerful wall-to-wall-statement in the entry foyer that acts as a modern day Manhattan mudroom. The home is delivered with in-wall speakers and a Lutron lighting system.
The large eat-in and windowed kitchen would make a chef quite happy. It comes complete with a 2.5" end grain butcher block counter at the kitchen island. The yellow painted, custom shaker style cabinets add a sense of warmth to the home. There are two dishwashers, a 48" Wolfe range, a high speed in wall Wolfe oven and a subzero refrigerator. The backsplash is a beautiful, hand-made BDDW tile. Adjacent to the kitchen is a large walk-through pantry made of custom millwork.
The master suite has two walk-in-closets and an en-suite master bathroom, which is elegantly appointed with a custom millwork vanity with pale marble countertop, under-mounted soaking tub, glass enclosed shower, and marble mosaic floor. In addition there is a large sitting area that rounds off the suite.
Additional bedrooms feature large windows, en-suite bathrooms, and highly-crafted details, including custom millwork beds. Other features include a powder room, washer/dryer, and four-pipe HVAC system with multiple zoned climate controls for maximum year-round flexibility.
In addition, the building offers a staggering array of state-of-the-art amenities never before available in the West Village, including a full fitness and wellness level with professionally designed facilities, yoga and treatment rooms, 25-meter swimming pool with hot tub, and high-end golf simulator; spacious residents' lounge, dining room with guest chef's kitchen and separate catering kitchen; a 21-seat screening room; a light-filled children's playroom; bicycle and private storage; and 24-hour attended lobbies.
The Greenwich Lane is a collection of five unique addresses and five townhouses nestled together in the West Village, New York's most intimate and desirable neighborhood. Revitalizing nearly a full city block between Twelfth and Eleventh Streets off Seventh Avenue, the development is groundbreaking for its LEED-certified architecture by FXFOWLE, and for world-renowned designer Thomas O'Brien's visionary interiors and dramatic public spaces.
A rare mix of historical restoration and innovative new construction, each building carries the grace of its own era: from stately pre-war elegance to modern cont
