This elegantly designed two-bedroom residence pays tribute to arguably the most distinguished building in this Blue-Chip Gold Coast Greenwich Village location with only 2 apartments per floor, preserving privacy and exclusivity. 11B has beamed ceilings, a wood burning fireplace, oversized windows with stunning natural light and open views highlighted by the historic & beautiful First Presbyterian Church ...these are just a few features of this extraordinary home. While maintaining the rich aesthetic of its earlier time, modern enhancements such as central A/C round out this truly exquisite space.
The formal entry foyer gracefully separates the entry's to the living room in one direction and the formal dining room and kitchen in the other. The gracious living room is bathed in beautiful natural light, and the oversized north facing windows offer stunning open city views highlighted by the breathtaking church and lower Fifth Ave. Featuring High ceilings, hand raked and stenciled wall coverings, georgous rift and quarter sawn white oak herringbone floors, custom crafted floor to ceiling bookshelves and the stunning fireplace create a chic sanctuary. The formal dining room is both stylish and graceful...the combination of the southern exposure, simple but cool moldings and custom millwork make this the perfect place for grand scale entertaining or cozy & quiet family time and meals. Directly off of the dining room is the windowed Chef's kitchen which is classically designed with Carrara marble countertops, classic subway tile backsplash, custom cabinetry, and premium finishes, including a SubZero refrigerator Bosch dishwasher, and Viking range.
On the other side of the home is the bedroom wing with the master and second bedroom. The master suite includes a walk-in closet and en-suite windowed bathroom, outfitted in Carrara marble tiles & Waterworks fixtures. The same beautiful natural light and views that you have in the living room are shared here with the addition of an eastern exposure creating a lovely corner of open views. The second bedroom has oversized East facing windows, beautiful light, a windowed en-suite bath and great closet space. Situated on the 11th floor, the apartment also comes with a very large storage room located in the building's spotless basement.
40 Fifth Avenue is one of the finest pre-war cooperatives on lower Fifth Avenue's Gold Coast. The stately 1929 Neo-Georgian building is situated within the Greenwich Village Historic District amongst tree-lined streets and townhomes. The co-operative prides itself on providing its residents the highest level of white glove service. Residents enjoy full-time doorman service and elevator operators, a live-in superintendent, additional laundry in the building, storage and a garden. The co-op features low maintenance and permits pets and 50 percent financing.
Greenwich Village (also known as West Village) extends from Houston Street to 14 Street west of Fourth Avenue and Lafayette Street. However, Greenwich Village proper is now thought of as being the area west of Sixth Avenue and Greenwich Avenue. The Village has been widely known as a bohemian community of artists and writers since the 1920s, yet is a neighborhood that never stops evolving and reinventing itself. With New York University, Washington Square Park and a busy shopping district at its center, it continues to be a popular and active place to live. Every turn can bring you to a place rich with city history. Due to the lack of high-rises, the residential streets remain beautiful and elegant with many attractive old brick townhouses and pre-war apartments. There are also many classic condo and co-op buildings in the area.
