Dramatic Greenwich Village townhouse gets a $7 million price cut

New, 9 comments

The new listings photos, however, don’t showcase the home’s colorful interiors

If you missed out on this gorgeous six-bedroom Greenwich Village townhouse because it was several million dollars out of your budget, take heart: the five story home has been re-listed, and the price has been slashed—to a mere $28.5 million, down from $35 million in February.

The current owner, frozen food entrepreneur-slash-countess Elisabeth de Kergorlay, bought the place back in 2008 and gut renovated the place, installing what may be the most opulent bathroom in all of New York. (This is unscientific, but look at it—it’s 450 square feet of Calacatta gold marble imported from Italy!)

In addition to the bathroom (which is bigger than all of these apartments) the house has a "gracious" living room with 12-foot ceilings, a dining room that opens onto a terrace overlooking the garden, a chef’s kitchen with two (2) ovens and two (2) dishwashers, and six light-filled bedrooms. Also, Meryl Streep once lived here, so there is also a general aura of talent.

Notably, the initial listing by Brown Harris Stevens included tons of pictures of the house, which is, one might say, "brightly colored." The new listing, from Corcoran, seems to be taking a more subdued approach—the flame-colored kitchen islands, fuchsia bedroom, and bright red living room are all suspiciously not pictured. (Presumably, they are all still there, and presumably, it is also possible to change them, if you prefer more neutral environs.)
