The enormous apartment on Jane Street has a quirky layout

Apartments at 68 Jane Street, a seven-story former factory in the West Village that was converted into a residential building 40 years ago, tend to be a bit unusual. There was, for instance, the full-floor pad on the sixth floor that would best be described as “eclectic,” with furniture and other decor that didn’t really match, but looked cool nonetheless. (It ended up selling earlier this year for $10 million.)

Now, another apartment—billed as the maisonette—is on the market asking $5.2 million, and it’s as minimalist as the sixth-floor loft was outré. The 4,000-square-foot pad belongs to an artist, which here translates into a lot of open, white walls that would serve as a good canvas for a (presumably wealthy) buyer’s art collection.

It also has an interesting configuration; the apartment is a duplex, with a curved walkway connecting the rooms on the upper level, and windows there “that allow light to flow unimpeded throughout the home.”

As for the basics, there are three bedrooms and two bathrooms (plus a powder room) spread out over two stories, along with an eat-in kitchen, an office on the lower level, and a walk-in closet attached to the master bedroom. There are two entrances: one within the building itself, and another private entrance on Jane Street, to add to that whole maisonette feel. (The building also counts Willem Dafoe among its residents, to add to that whole cool-West-Village-building feel.)
