A book-loving family has started a new chapter in life – with a little help from Citi Habitats agent Joanne Gamel.
After renting for years, mom, dad and the three kids wanted townhouse-size space and plenty of privacy.
When Gamel showed them the contemporary three-bedroom, 3.5-bath condo at 36 West 13th Street (pictured top) it was love at first sight.
“After viewing two other options that weren’t quite right, we set our sights on this incredible home,” Gamel explained.
“What they liked about this property was that it really does feel like a true home. Even though it’s listed as a condo, it has a townhouse feel. The husband is a major foodie and loves to cook, and the kitchen is a chef’s dream come true.
“Also, he is an avid reader and the home has tons of space for his immense book collection. It really was a perfect space for the family.”
The condo has a private elevator and the master suite features an all-glass ceiling, dressing area and walk-in closet .
Gabriella Krasnitsky of LG Fairmont had listed the home at $6,645,000. The sale closed at $6,327,000.
