Privately encompassing half of the 5th floor of The Ardea, a pre-war cooperative with historic provenance on Greenwich Village’s Gold Coast, this Classic Six offers a rare opportunity for the discriminating purchaser with vision and esteem for original period details.
In estate condition with approximately 1700 square feet under 10-foot ceilings, this pre-war residence offers you and your architect the freedom to employ today’s gold standards for modern renovations while retaining pre-war features including generous entertaining spaces, four varieties of moldings and ornate mahogany pocket and closet doors ripe for restoration. Here since the 1890s, and here to stay, are the home’s bright southern exposures over wide landmarked townhouses – the perfect backdrop to a blank and expansive creative canvas.
A quiet distance from the corner of 12th Street and lower 5th Avenue, The Ardea is entirely discreet with only 23 large residences, and entirely regal, with character and architectural richness often seen as the epitome of pre-war Gold Coast Village living.
Sample renovation plans inclusive of approved second full bathroom available upon private request.
