Maisonette B at The Shephard is a 1,868-square foot two-bedroom/two-and-a-half bathroom home with a grand, gracious layout, designer finishes, and high barrel-vaulted ceilings and large windows making for excellent south-facing light and air.
Enter through a foyer into the open living and dining room, with loft-scale proportions and a beautiful banquette. The chef's kitchen is open to the living room, and is designed by Gachot Studio with Smallbone of Devizes custom cabinetry, Miele appliances, Valli and Valli brass hardware, backslashes and abundant counter space made of absolute black granite, and a large island made of statuary white marble.
The bedrooms are separated from the living room by an elegant gallery, which includes the powder room and a closet with the home's washer and dryer. The master bedroom is enormous and has its own entry foyer that can be used as a sitting area, along with multiple closets. The master bathroom features a hand-crafted mahogany vanity with Lefroy Brooks fixtures, white mosaic fan tile floors, Dolomiti white stone slab walls, pale grey painted millwork, plus a soaking tub, separate shower, and separate commode room. The second bedroom is also quite large, and with its own beautifully-outfitted en-suite bathroom with tub.
Throughout the home, there is wonderful wall space for art and special nooks to accommodate built-in bookshelves. The washer and dryer in residence and central air compete this home.
A studio apartment, 8D, can be purchased in addition to Maisonette B, and would be a wonderful accessory apartment to the maisonette, e.g. for guests and family visiting or as a large separate office/work studio.

Located on a quiet, tree-lined street in the most sought-after part of the West Village, The Shephard has been thoughtfully redesigned, re-engineered, and totally renovated to become one of the finest and most special residential buildings in Manhattan. Comprised of 38 unique apartments, the interior design by Gachot is elegant and rich, using only the most beautiful materials to accentuate the building's distinguished character. A new lobby and lovely garden have been created by incorporating a neighboring carriage house into the building's plan. Every detail has been considered, with all new systems and mechanicals of the highest caliber.
In addition to a full-time doorman and concierge, amenities include a basketball court, a gym with Pilates equipment, a golf simulator, steam rooms, a club room with arcade and ping pong, and a paneled library that opens to the building's landscaped garden. The building retains an intimate, boutique feel while still providing residents with many fantastic spaces to relax and play.
