New, 1 comment

This week’s edition includes David Yurman’s West Village townhouse and Gerard Butler’s ornate Chelsea loft

Every week, Curbed covers dozens of market listings that vary in price, location, size, grandeur, quirkiness, and other distinct characteristics. If they managed to capture our attention, that means there’s definitely something special going on.

↑Depending on your idea of beauty, there is this gloriously overwrought 67th floor condo in One57 that just hit the market for $27 million. The apartment spans half of the 67th floor and has, under its current owner, undergone a renovation by DHD that brought the pad walls covered in white gold leaf and endowed it with other swanky materials like custom marble slab flooring and onyx.
