While there's no shortage of quirky and downright weird housing choices in this city, a Curbed tipster thinks the 3BR, 1BA co-op unit on the fourth floor of 319 West 14th Street is not only the worst floorplan currently on the market, but the "worst floorplan ever. I'm horrified. Just horrified." Not horrified: Fabulously mustachioed, v-neck-loving stylist, designer and TV personality Phillip Bloch, who bought the 1,450-square-foot apartment for $1.15 million in 2007. Bloch tried to sell the "penthouse" a year later for $1.5 million, but found no takers. The price has now fallen to $1.049 million, and before you go shredding the floorplan (seen after the jump), consider the place's potential!
The listing sets the scene:
A True Diamond in the rough with EXLCUSIVE Buildable ROOF RIGHTS! Currently a 1450sf residence, the roof rights allow for constructuion of an additional 1000sf above, creating an over 2400sf penthouse duplex. Potentially with 12-15 ft ceilings on both levels and a large set back terrace with expansive views of Greenwich Village and Downtown.Still not feeling it? Well, um, what about the pair of marble fireplaces?! Here's the offending floorplan. Really so bad?
