Weekly Top Ten Real Estate Hot List Tue: 09-18-2012
It sounds like it could be a TV script home for a new comedy show or a man cave for the 2012 NFL season but a Greenwich Village water tank has been converted into a sophisticated urban cottage that opens out to a large terrace with vegetation and rooftop views. The tank has been emptied and immaculately finished inside with its own central air, heat, cable and airy 24’ (yes, 288 inches) ceilings. There are glass walls overlooking the wood deck, full grown trees, stands of bamboo and trellised vines, irrigation, lights and an outdoor speaker system. The tank skyline view is ever changing from sunrise to the nightly sparkle of city lights. Who knew a water tank could be so versatile? But the surprise isn’t over yet.
In order to access the snazzy water tank and rooftop garden, one enters through the luxurious and sophisticated 2 bedroom, 2 bath loft-styled condo below. Adorned with 12’ ceilings, huge skylight, wood floors and fireplace, the loft’s large open space is entertainment ready. With everything from gourmet kitchen to waterproofed Venetian plastered bathroom walls, even the most jaded New Yorker might feel palpitations when viewing this one-of-a-kind residence.
One of New York’s most unique lofts priced at $3.6 million.
