Natural light pours into this skylit penthouse duplex where undisturbed top floor living and expert architectural finishes afford a lifestyle of effortless tranquility. Surrounded by eight large windows with courtyards on both sides, in addition to the remarkable nine skylights, this home features a generous open layout with soaring 10-foot ceilings. This quiet, expansive, and radiant corner apartment is located in the heart of downtown, where the West Village meets SoHo and Greenwich Village. It was completely renovated by Dieter David Schoellnberger and reconfigured from an oversized two bedroom to an open loft-like one bedroom with two-and-a-half baths. It can be enjoyed as is, or restored back to a two-bedroom or potentially three-bedroom home. The large living room naturally delineates into living and dining spaces with an elegant built-in office niche with open custom shelving hidden behind flush closet doors. The open kitchen features white Corian counters, modern cabinets to the ceiling, high-end Jenn-Air appliances and a Miele gas stove and dishwasher. A beautiful, solid and wide staircase leads to the luxurious 4th floor master suite with another set of corner exposures, separate sitting area, and immense walk-in closet. The ensuite master bath has a large spa tub and glass tile finishes. Additionally, the master bedroom features a separate custom dressing space, with another beauty/make up vanity and sauna-like shower. Live beyond the ordinary and enjoy the down-to-earth luxury of sun beams or the sound of rain from your multiple skylights. Seemingly endless storage from seven custom fitted closets, a discreet murphy bed for guests, thick custom doors with pivot hinges, recessed lighting, bamboo floors and your own vented washer/dryer complete this home. Located on a treelined street, 204 West Houston Street is within blocks of three transportation lines, Washington Square Park, the Film Forum and all the culinary refinements that life in the Village, SoHo, Hudson Square and Tribeca have to offer. This boutique cooperative offers an elevator, bike room, storage room, and courtyard garden with BBQ, video intercom system and super. Co-purchasing, subletting, guarantors and pets all considered.
