This Week’s Price Chop – 200 Rector Place, Apt 41-AB

By Linecity, March 2, 2022

The latest edition of Price Chop looks at a sprawling combination apartment in the heart of Battery Park City.

Apartment 41-AB at 200 Rector Place is a spectacular nine-room residence with 5 bedrooms and 4.5 baths. The current price of $3,125,000 represents a hefty 27.6% drop from the original ask of $4,350,000. The property was introduced to the market in September 2021.

200 Rector Place, also known as Liberty Court, is a postwar luxury high-rise located on the south side of Rector Place between South End Avenue and West Street. Nestled against West Thames Park and Lurey Park, the building is just steps from the Hudson River Greenway and a short walk to the Battery Park City Esplanade. The full-service building soars 46 floors and contains 535 apartments.

Apartment 41-AB is an expansive 2,900 square foot apartment which offers a pristine renovation of two adjoining units.  Breathtaking views of the Hudson River, New York Harbor and the Statue of Liberty to the west and south and One World Trade Center and downtown Manhattan to the north make this a world-class residence.  

A gracious entry foyer (11’9” x 14’) sets the tone and formally welcomes you into the residence.  Find your way to the expansive corner living room (23’6” x 21’3”) and a wall of windows greets you with west-facing views across the Hudson and north-facing uptown views.  Floor-to-ceiling built-ins are set against an interior wall and allow for an intimate gaming area. 

The kitchen is a contemporary delight.  If you have a passion for entertaining, this is the kitchen to which to lay claim.   Endless countertops and an abundance of cabinets makes just about anything possible.  Double entry high-end stainless steel appliances include a Viking double oven, Viking cooktop with an overhead hood and a Sub-Zero refrigerator.  A set of dishwashers makes cleanup a breeze.   

The kitchen design plays a bit of an eye trick with light wood lower cabinets and white lacquered upper cabinets.  The result is a space that appears to blend into the walls and doesn’t overwhelm with a single cabinet style or color.  There are two means of egress, a set of wide pocket doors leads to the adjoining dining room and a second door adjoins the service entrance.

Each of the bedrooms are well proportioned and enjoy open views.  Two of the bedrooms, including the primary, are situated away from the common area.  They each offer en suite baths as well as northern views.

The additional bedrooms sit between the Living Room and the Dining Room off the main hallway.  They each face west toward the river. 

The apartment also features an in-unit laundry room, wide plank floors and abundant storage.

Liberty Court is a full service building with a host of amenities.  There is a penthouse level health club with an indoor pool, garage parking, lounge spaces, storage, bike room and laundry facilities.

At $3.15 million, the current offering plays out at $1,086 per square foot.  Apartment 41-AB at Liberty Court is represented by Sid Gandotra of Corcoran. For more information about this terrific property, please visit Linecity.
