Arguably one of the most unique houses in the West Village, 230 West 10th offers monumental contemporary architecture situated behind an impeccable West Village carriage house facade that promises the utmost in discretion and privacy. Built on an exceptionally rare lot that originally housed two buildings and doubles in width at the rear of the property, this modern and sophisticated home was over 3 years in design and construction. Liberal use of light woods and metals, delicate Venetian plaster, and authentic gallery lighting create a soothing palate against an architecturally dynamic backdrop. The entire house wraps a central light court that is open to the West allowing abundant natural light through sheer walls of glass. Spectacular volumes unfold on the main floor, with a double height living area punctuated by a sculptural staircase reaching the top floor. The first floor opens to a lovely private patio, one of 4 outdoor areas the house affords. Natural light filters through the glass patio floor to the exercise room and steam room on the lower level. The second floor features 4 very private bedrooms and a playroom, accessible from stairways front and rear. The third floor is a world apart where serenity prevails housing a huge master suite with deck, a media room and an elegantly outfitted office. The house retains a curb cut and has an elevator and a Crestron home automation system.
