Sometimes a property simply has it all, reports Citi Habitats’ top-producer Elaine Mayers. Mayers recently sold unit #10F at 15 Charles Street in the West Village after
only one week on the market and for $50,000 over the $1.5 million asking price. The home boasts incredible views of the Empire State Building to the north, the Freedom Tower to the south and the Hudson River to the West. It’s been completely renovated, with an open island kitchen and a spa-like bath. “This condo building in the West Village is always in great demand because of its location, and I have sold more than 15 apartments there, most of them sponsor units,” Mayers explained.
“Usually, the sponsor units date back to the 60’s and need renovation, but this apartment was uniquely updated with designer appliances, fixtures, custom appointments, and excellent views, making it even more desirable — and it went fast. “There was intense interest, as the home offered the best of both worlds. It’s a beautiful apartment in a prime location.” The buyer is a real estate investor who plans to rent the apartment immediately. Eric Malley of the Malley Group represented the buyer.
