Its skinnier neighbor may be the more famous property, but 75 Bedford Street is probably the better bet for purchase. So we applaud one James Oakley who, according to public records, just picked up 75 Bedford Street for $5.8 million. The house, designed by M.N. Ahari, has been on and off the market since March 2011, with an original ask of $6.8 million and a reduced price of $6.3 million as of earlier this year. There are some custom features to the layout, like the "dramatic glass and steel great room." The design was also influenced by, uh, trash.
The house is 3,400 square feet compared to 75.5 Bedford's 990. And the two houses share a lovely?and large?secret garden with another neighboring townhouse. So Oakley will be able to peer inside 75.5 Bedford without having to deal with the camera-toting tourists out front.
