59 West 12th Street, #16A

Between Fifth Avenue & Avenue of the Americas   |    Greenwich Village

BY APPOINTMENT ONLY. A unique and rare opportunity to live in a palatial two bedroom, two bathroom apartment with over 400sqft of private outdoor living. Primed to perfection and move-in ready, no layout within the building is like this one.

Offering east, west, and south exposures from the interior, the living room as well as both bedrooms are south facing and flooded with natural sunlight. Each of the generously sized bedrooms has its own bath and walk-in closets. Tastefully redone live/dine areas reflect open concept living while still keeping the charm of its prewar details; 11ft beamed ceilings, working wood-burning fireplace, over 1ft high baseboard molding and original oak hardwood floors.

Designed and reimagined, the cook's kitchen has been newly renovated, fitted with custom cabinets, Viking cooktop, and other designer grade stainless steel appliances.

Views forever! Step through one of two sets of french doors onto an expansive setback wrap terrace that runs the entire length of the apt. Majestic views abound from W.12th Street all the way to lower Manhattan, the water and beyond, capturing a stunning day and nighttime panorama of downtown's city skyline.

Landmark protection guarantees views and into perpetuity.

59 West 12th Street is one of the most sought after prewar condominium buildings, located on a beautiful tree lined block in the prestigious Gold Coast section of Greenwich Village. Designed by renowned architect Emery Roth and developed by Bing and Bing, this building has a doorman, laundry room, playroom, and is pet friendly. Apt comes with a large storage unit in the basement.

Centrally located just off 6th Avenue, its just a short jaunt to all major forms of transportation, Union Square, Washington Square Park, West Village, High Line, restaurants and boutique shops galore. Show more
