There is an allure and a bit of mystery about living on the water’s edge. The horizon beckons. One can’t help but wonder the worldly destinations of the passengers and the cargo heading out to sea. Each voyage has its own tale.
Penthouse 1C at 10 Little West Street at the southern tip of Manhattan maintains a constant eye on the harbor and the vastness beyond. This four-bedroom home offers 3,042 square feet of luxury living and the best water views New York City has to offer. And today, this spectacular room is the latest edition of our “One Room” series.
The great room (22’7”x30’2”) points toward the Statue of Liberty like the quarterdeck of an ocean liner. Its concave shape and its full wall of floor-to-ceiling windows literally takes you out to sea offering surreal views of the Statue of Liberty, Governor’s Island, New York Harbor and the Verrazano Bridge. Lest not forget those epic sunsets too.
The open-plan allows for a comfortable living room as well as a full dining area. Ten-foot ceilings further enhance the immersive experience. Brazilian cherry hardwood floors cross the room diagonally and add warmth. Both the entrance gallery and the breakfast room open into the great room creating an extended entertaining space.
10 Little West Street is a full service building with hotel-style amenities and services as provided by the Ritz Carlton Battery Park. Amenities include a private residents only entrance, full-time concierge, in-room dining, restaurant, fitness room, valet parking and optional housekeeping services.
The post-war structure rises 40 floors and offers open water views to most of its 113 residences. Outside your front door is an array of popular destinations, including some of downtown’s most glorious parks and the start of the endless Hudson River Greenway (some 12.9 miles in total).
The current asking price for Penthouse 1C is $4.99 million, almost 9% off the original ask of $5.475 million. This represents a per square foot price of $1,640. The unit is also available for rent at $27,000 per month.
