Who wouldn’t want to spend their summer in NYC. The maze of diverse neighborhoods is chock-full of haute events and celebrations that distract from the heat and humidity. Thus, it makes sense that German supermodel Heidi Klum has decided to spend this summer renting a posh five-story townhouse in the West Village. The townhouse, at 400 West St, is being rented out for $70,000 a month.
The alluring townhouse is a short walk away from the Hudson, and was designed by Bob and Courtney Novogratz of HGTV’s Home by Novogratz. It features a laundry-list of haute amenities. One of its most exquisite features is a stunning rooftop terrace with a large teak wood hot tub, a wood-burning fireplace, an outdoor TV, and a fully-equipped kitchen covered by a retractable awning.
The townhouse also comes complete with a wood-burning pizza oven, a gas barbecue, a refrigerator, a wine cooler, a ice maker and a beer tap.
Moving inside, the townhouse features a basketball court, a screening room and even a private garage. The private garage is of note because it’s clad in a distinct mural of blue hues designed by famed artist Richard Woods.
The 7,180 ft townhouse is comprised of five bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms. The third floor is a master suite, while the fourth and fifth floors include two bedrooms, one on each level. The living room’s glass garage door opens onto a large terraced landscaped outdoor space crafted from stone and glass.
Klum is very familiar with the space. The Project Runway star once shared the large penthouse with her ex-husband, Seal.
Listed with brokers Susan Green and Dana Power of Town Residential, the property is also available for sale, asking $17.95 million.
