Overlooking the tiny James J. Walker Park in the West Village, this mod townhouse designed by David Chipperfield is now on the market for $13.995 million. This 5,000-square-foot townhouse features four bedrooms and four bathrooms. Its most eye-catching feature is a sculptural oak staircase designed by David Mlinaric that runs the length of the house.
The four-story townhouse, located on St. Lukes Place (one of the West Village’s many tiny streets), opens up into a spacious living room on the parlor floor. The living area comes with 10-foot-tall windows that overlook the park. The townhouse also has its own green space; a large landscaped garden that can be accessed through the floor below.
This garden floor also comes with a formal dining room, and one of the four bedrooms in the house. The kitchen takes up most of the basement and comes with stainless steel appliances, and wine storage. A laundry room is also located on this floor.
The master suite takes up all of the fourth floor, and the bathroom on this floor features a solid travertine bathtub, and Dornbracht fixtures. Aside from that, the house comes with wood-burning fireplaces, and access to a roof terrace as well.
British architect David Chipper field is working on another project in the West Village at the moment, an apartment building at 11 Jane Street. That project had to go through the city’s Landmarks Preservation Commission four times before it was finally approved earlier this year.
