Don’t be fooled by this modest-looking Grove Street townhouse; it’s been redone top to bottom with high-grade finishes and has the price tag to prove it. This 20-plus foot wide West Village townhouse sits on the corner of Grove and Bedford streets in the Greenwich Village Historic District, and is now on the market for $25 million with Douglas Elliman.
Everything in the townhouse has been “thoughtfully selected by Axel Vervoordt,” the Belgian AD100 designer and antiquarian, the listing reads. While there aren’t many pictures of the townhouse’s interior (boo!) the listing goes into detail about what prospective buyers will find inside in the “wabi-sabi” style, or the Japanese aesthetic philosophy that embraces simplicity and imperfection.
That includes a 12-seat theater with a 4K laser projector and black diamond screen; a 5,000-bottle wine cellar; a yoga and meditation room; a Bronze steel vestibule; a kitchen with Burgundy limestone slab countertops and Sub-Zero, Miele, Wolf, and Gaggeneau appliances; an entire library floor including a wet bar backed by mercury mirror, a chiseled limestone vanity, and a wood-burning fireplace; a master suite with double walk-in closets (as well as double en suite toilets, of course); and a crowning glass vestibule that leads to a roof terrace equipped with a gas grill, dining area, and lounge.
Adding to all that goodness, the townhouse also comes with a curb cut and private gated parking spot, as well as the added bonus of no parking permitted on the perimeter of the property.
