The house on 6 West 9th Street is very deceptive to say the least. It is a typical Greenwich Village brownstone and the exterior doesn’t prepare you for the fantastic interiors and its amenities. It is a very efficient house with the latest technology that is all controlled through an iPad. It is very luxurious and yet very sober. It has been made for those who like to have the best of everything but don’t flaunt it. It is an exquisite 9,000 sq ft five story house and is located on a prime Gold Coast block in Greenwich Village. It is the brain child of Timothy Barry in partnership with SPaN Architects and has been built like a modern work of art.
The House with a 65 Feet Atrium
The use of material is particularly imaginative and the best of materials like steel, glass, wood and stone have been coordinated together brilliantly. The highlight of the house and the first thing that strikes you as you enter the house is the basement to ceiling atrium. Even from the basement you can see the sky 65 feet up. The abundance of natural light makes the house energy efficient as it uses less gas and oil. The floors are heated radiantly and the temperature changes occur slowly. As you enter the house the Jacomo glass hallway greets you with natural light that is bright and refreshing. To climb up to the upper floors you have a free standing elevator that radiates class with its cashmere grey mist granite. The origami steel staircase looks like a piece of sculpture that seems to wrap around the elevator.
The Most Magnificent Kitchen
Under the glass atrium you have the rather large entertaining space and attached to it is the state of the art kitchen that will make any chef proud. It is so complete that it feels like a house in itself. The appliances include an 8-burner professional Viking range, double ovens, oversized Liebherr refrigerator, dual 36-inch Smeg dishwashers. The kitchen also boasts of a long line of cabinets crafted with lacquer and a 9-foot Verde Serpentina island and discreet LED lighting everywhere makes it easy to work any time of the day or night. A steel door connects the kitchen to a tranquil courtyard that is ideal for dining al fresco.
Be the First to Rent the House
The top two floors of the house has four large bedrooms with oversized walk-in closets. The bathrooms on these floors boast of Turkish marble walls. The fixtures like showers, air jet soaking tubs, bidets and toilets are from Toto, the leading Japanese brand. The luxurious house also features a full screening room with surround sound, wine storage room, gym with bathroom, a large staff kitchen with 2 washers and dryers and a dog grooming room. It is a house where every detail has been taken care of and you will not find a similar home in the area or even the city. The house is ready to be rented out. Halstead Property is handling the house and Chris Pomeroy is the listing agent. The rent for a month is rather high at $75,000 but in which other house you will see a rainbow projected through the glass in the ceiling.
