An historical Romanesque church was restored and converted into several modern luxury apartments located in Greenwich Village, a district of Manhattan, New York. Built in 1860, this church features a series of state-of-the-art apartments, but most notable is this duplex penthouse. With 3,500 square feet of sumptuous living space spread out over two levels, the home features soaring ceilings and an expansive sliding glass wall that spills out onto a quite spacious leafy terrace. On this level there is also a custom designed Boffi kitchen, an open plan dining and living area off the terrace in addition to an elegantly designed living room. Keeping the home feeling airy and bright are crisp white walls finished with a Venetian plaster and flooring comprised of Brazilian walnut, lending an air of sophistication. Found in several of the rooms are preserved stained glass windows, which builds character and nods to the home’s past. You are led down to the lower level via a floating chrome staircase, which houses a spacious library/media room, in addition to three elegant bedrooms and two-and-a-half bathrooms.
This fabulous penthouse was spotted on CORE, listed for sale at $12,495,000.
The penthouse offers the perfect blend of drama, function and elegance. This home gives you a truly unique penthouse living experience that most dare to dream about, but is very rare to find. A cyber-doorman security system is in place for this building, offering you complete convenience and plenty of privacy to live a luxurious lifestyle with every amenity at your fingertips.

What We Love: This is a unique living experience to take up residence in an historical church, especially in a fantastic New York location. Everything about this home is superb, but we especially love the high ceilings and the outdoor terrace, that brings light in and allows you a breath of fresh air and spectacular city views!
Fun Fact: British actor Jude Law (The Holiday) was reported to have rented out this penthouse for a year back in 2009 while doing a stint on Broadway. This has helped to increased the value of this home significantly, in Hollywood style!
