464 Greenwich Street, the top contract with a $29.9 million ask (The Corcoran Group) 464 Greenwich Street, the top contract with a $29.9 million ask (The Corcoran Group)
The top contract of the week was 464 Greenwich Street, which was built in 1892 as a roasting plant for a variety of coffee companies, including the Turkish and Arabian Coffee Company, and just entered contract with an asking price of $29,900,000. Olshan Realty's market report identified the owner as fashion mogul Millard "Mickey" Drexler, who is best best known for turning J. Crew and Ann Taylor into household names; his resume also includes the founding of Old Navy and Madewell, as well as seats on the boards of such companies as Apple, Warby Parker, and Outdoor Voices.

Mr. Drexler brought his eye for style to his house as well, commissioning Thierry Despont for a full renovation into a single-family home shortly after buying it for $5,500,000 in 2008. Features such as a custom eat-in kitchen, gym, sauna, and rooftop terrace were almost certainly not part of the building from the start, but the original signage remains on the front.

From the Listing:
Commissioned in 1930 by banker Henry R. Winthrop upon his daughter’s engagement, the architects of this house, envisioned a neo-Georgian residence with a scene-stealing entrance niche. Delano & Aldrich created the dramatic entrance by cutting deeply into the façade with a sweeping curved marble staircase that leads up to the offset entrance door. The arms of the elegant iron fence bow out, mirroring the shape of the entrance alcove. The upper floors of red brick are subtly trimmed in limestone. Inside the rooms boast French paneling, rich hardwoods and carved marble mantles which among other period details have been meticulously maintained and carefully restored.

The house offers 14 rooms on 8 stories above grade with many principal rooms boasting floor to ceiling windows with double exposures facing south and west, bathing them with abundant southern light. With well over 10,000 square feet of interior living space, the house offers a grand formal living room and elegant dining room, a handsome wood paneled library, 8 beautifully proportioned bedrooms each with its own bathroom and 8 fireplaces, a large eat-in chefs’ kitchen with custom cabinetry, a full-size gym and Pilates studio with massage room, and even a large wine storage which can accommodate over 600 bottles.
