ASH NYC has launched the first of two revamped nineteenth-century townhouses in the West Village.
Located at 13 and 21 Eighth Avenue off West 12th Street, the landmarked 20-foot-wide, Federal Style buildings were previously operated as a nine-room hotel. The townhouses will be two luxury single-family homes — one duplex and one triplex — with ground-floor retail, according to the developer’s site.
Pre-renovation, 13 Eighth Avenue was a three-story 1901 brick building measuring 1,360 square feet, with ground-floor retail and three hotel rooms in the upper floors. 21 Eighth Avenue was a four-story brick building measuring 2,460 square feet, with a storefront office, six hotel rooms and a garden floor leading to a backyard.
The developer purchased the two townhouses in February 2013 for $3.6 million — considerably lower than the asking price of $6 million, according to the Karpoff Affiliates listing. Permits were filed the same month to reconfigure the properties.
The listing for 13 Eighth Avenue, asking $4.25 million, went live yesterday. The “jewel box” triplex has 8″ white oak wide plank floors, wood-burning black slate fireplace, recessed lights controlled by brass rotary switches (oooh) and an open kitchen with custom black oak cabinetry, Bianco Dolomiti marble countertops and backsplash, Miele oven and Liebherr refrigerator. A custom steel stairwell leads to master and guest bedrooms on the second floor; the master bathroom has brass Waterworks fixtures, custom vanity and wall-hung Toto toilet. The top-most floor has a glass penthouse “sanctuary,” with front and rear decks. Also included: irrigation system, custom planters, leafy views.
Although the listing cat is out of the bag, let’s take a moment to appreciate the delicately curated peeks of the property via ASH NYC’s Instagram. We’d expect no less, given the developer’s interior design roots:
