Apartment Therapy cued us into the sale of Jennifer Bartlett’s 5 bedroom and 5 bath home/studio across the street from our offices in New York’s West Village. We’ve always found the building a bit drab from the outside considering it’s next door to the West Village’s oldest building (1820’s Federal style townhome) which was recently renovated and painted a bright hue of yellow/green. But from our rooftop we had spied a pool on the 3rd floor so we knew it wasn’t just any building.
It’s a beautiful home and as you can see by the list price ($19.5 million) New York real estate hasn’t budged much. It’s available through Sotheby’s and if we had the coin I’m sure we could manage living and working from there.
