Jewelry designer Ann Dexter-Jones is looking to offload her Greenwich Village duplex for $4.995 million, reports the New York Post.
The apartment is located at The Portsmouth, built by Gilded Age architect-developer Ralph S. Townsend in the early 1880s, and nestled on a tree-lined “Gold Coast” block off lower Fifth Avenue. Dexter-Jones’s intensely appealing digs convey, per the listing with Sotheby’s, “the feeling of a townhouse while affording the convenience of a full service building.” It is, the brokerbabble continues, a “perfect marriage of 19th century charm and 21st century amenities.”
In practical terms, the home boasts two bedrooms (though that could be converted to three, if you forfeit the office), two bathrooms, four wood-burning fireplaces, and 11-foot ceilings. The living area and two bedrooms are located on the main floor, with the master suite occupying its own so-called “wing,” while the kitchen, dining room, and study/third bedroom are housed on the lower level.
As for Dexter-Jones herself, she’ll be moving into her husband’s West Broadway loft—after a separation, she recently re-married Foreigner’s Mick Jones—and will “do something amazing with it,” a friend told the Post.
Mark Amadei and Roberta Golubock of Sotheby’s have the listing.
Dexter-Jones’s duplex is hardly the only celebrity home in the neighborhood to hit the market this week: Keith Richards’s four-bedroom penthouse was also listed—or rather, re-listed—this week for a slightly spendier $12 million.
