Inside A $14,950,000 Luxury Modern Townhouse In New York City | On The Market | Architectural Digest

  • čas přidán 1. 10. 2023
  • Today Architectural Digest brings you to the West Village in New York City to tour 60 Bethune Street, a luxury townhouse currently on the market for $14,950,000. Despite its classic brick exterior, inside the home is a surprisingly bright and modern space. A double-height atrium in the heart of the home opens up the interior letting light flow through the property. With 4 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms spread over 4 floors, this property is a relaxing respite from the hustle and bustle of the city outside.

    The only thing I like about it is the original facade. It's almost comical how everything is hidden but the whole back of the house is basically open like a fishbowl! And if the brief was to design something very bland, they nailed it!

    It is very cool and quite an achievement. But it is so sterile I would feel bad just walking in it! The sliding appliance counters will break or get clogged with food. Very quickly. The two best parts: the natural materials used, and the backyard. The backyard might be the best because it feels the most natural, the least space-like. Though NASA would be proud of this interior!

    Very nice, beautiful, & great features. I do think it’s a shame though that they didn’t mention more eco-friendly or sustainable aspects because someone who can afford that price point should be investing in those type of things

    • Zane Morgan

      I was thinking the same thing. The kitchen seemed slim and tiny to me, needed more. I guess for $14 million they order Door Dash every night and only eat leftovers.

    Well, I won’t be spending my 15 million on the property! The fixtures and fittings are sublime, but the lack of privacy and lack of character just leave me cold! I suspect it would be the ideal property for a multimillionaire minimalist exhibitionist 🤷‍♂️

    The design is amazing in a small town house. Took entire floor made half to a kitchen on the 2nd floor, half raised ceiling to the front portion created luxury looking. Walk up bedrooms floors to relax sleeping, It will be even more tired. The best part is the roof top garden and ocean view. The area for 15M house is worth.

      You announce “…notice..:” and then immediately use the words, “please note…” in your notice.
      Pretty redundant. It’s a miracle and an injustice that you are wealthy enough to afford a $15M townhouse with such poor command of the English language.

  • Gregory Mcclatchy
    Gregory Mcclatchy Před 2 měsíci +19

    Lovely, with wonderful design details. Yet the designers choose to install the TV monitor ridiculously high. Was it designed to be watched while standing? C'mon designers, if you don't know intuitively, read an OSHA brief once in a while. As smart, savvy designers, they do know what height does to optimum neck inclination, but solving the problem was deemed "not important enough. it looks fine in photos." Hoping this "doest matter" trend is dying out.

    • Claire & Nanami
      Claire & Nanami Před 2 měsíci +3

      I also thought that was too high.

    • mojojojo
      mojojojo Před 2 měsíci +2

      Every designer seems to do that in designer homes, the worst ones are the ones above a fireplace. Guaranteed neck pain. Almost as if a TV is considered a bad thing and is only included because it ‘must’ be there. I don’t understand how designers haven’t adapted yet.

  • Greg Curtin

    Sorry but this is badly designed and overpriced.
    1) Ppl in NYC want to maximize floor space per sq ft. They don't need a cutaway on the 2nd floor. 2) Fill in the cutaway and move the kitchen to where the dining room is currently located. Ppl want lots of natural light when cooking, prepping, and washing dishes. 3) The primary bathroom would have shower controls where you don't get wet. 4) No one wants a glass enclosed toilet in a shared bathroom. 5) For $15 million where is the elevator?
    ps: The kitchen is where everyone gathers -- no one wants a galley kitchen.

    I love the wildflower garden on the roof. And that’s about it… It’s a very austere design. And I wouldn’t want to wake up and stare out the window at my neighbors. I also agree with others’ comments on here about the impracticality of the the kitchen storage covers. I assume whoever lives here is not doing their own cleaning though!
