A Greenwich Village rarity, this unrivaled two-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bathroom penthouse loft features expansive sun-splashed interiors and two breathtaking rooftop outdoor spaces in the middle of a historic, tree-lined block.
Spanning more than 2,200 square feet, this one-of-a-kind home invites you to relax and unwind alongside soaring atrium windows, gleaming hardwood floors and a flexible open layout. Enjoy a generous living room that is sun-filled by day and warmed by the wood-burning fireplace at night. The open kitchen dazzles with a Sub-Zero refrigerator, dishwasher and a six-burner Wolf range with griddle, double ovens and a pot filler. Dine at the massive island/breakfast bar, or create an inviting dining area alongside north-facing windows.
At the rear of this level, the spacious and bright owner's suite features southern outlooks and two large closets, including a walk-in. The en suite spa bathroom impresses with floor-to-ceiling glass tile and a glass-block window surrounding an inviting soaking tub/rain shower and sleek double vanity. The second bedroom suite includes excellent closet space and an en suite bathroom, while a convenient powder room, extra closets and an in-unit washer-dryer complete the level.
A dramatic, oversized mezzanine, ideal as a music room or home office, overlooks the living space. From here, wide sliding glass doors open to your ultra-private 295-square-foot lower terrace. Up a short staircase, the second 456-square-foot terrace adds a turf lawn and remarkable roofline views to this not-to-be-missed Greenwich Village showplace.
Set within the South Village Historic District, 82 West 3rd Street is a Greek Revival brick rowhouse built in 1851. The building's illustrious past outshines its relatively diminutive proportions: It once the Cinderella Club from the 1930s to the 1950s, a popular jazz club where musicians like Billie Holiday and Thelonious Monk drew a celebrity crowd, including Mae West. Mafia-run gay and lesbian clubs occupied the building in the 60s and 70s. From the mid-80s until 2005, this was the site of the legendary Boston Comedy Club that helped launch the careers of Dave Chappelle, Dave Attell, Sarah Silverman, Pete Holmes and Jeff Ross, to name a few.
Today, this storied block puts you at the heart of outstanding Greenwich Village shopping, dining and nightlife. NYU and Washington Square Park add to the undeniable vibrancy of the area, and transportation is effortless with N/R/W, 6 and B/D/F/M trains, excellent bus service and CitiBikes all nearby.
