By heavily regulated West Village standards, 140 Charles Street is pretty tall. That's why the newly combined duplex at its top has such unobstructed 360-degree views. The glass-walled, be-terraced 4BR/4.5BA hit the market today, asking $13,750,000. The brokerbabble touts the 22 windows, seven floor-to-ceiling glass walls, six outdoor spaces, five wood-burning fireplaces, plus the fact that the 21st- and 22nd-floor residence was designed by HMA2, architect Henry Myerberg's firm. The listing also offers up two separate alternative floorplans for buyers who want to customize: one provides more room for entertaining on the bottom floor; while the other puts an enlarged master suite there, separate from the other bedrooms upstairs. Oh, and those vaunted views? They're safe, because "[t]he visionary work of the Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation ensures that these once in a lifetime views are protected." Yes, we're sure conserving penthouse views is the GVSHP's top priority. Plus there may be just a few other neighborhoods standing between the unit and, say, the Empire State Building. But we digress.
