While I doubt that I'll ever choose to buy real estate in Manhattan (I'm a West Coaster for life), I do enjoy checking out the high-end real estate that the borough has to offer, which is why I'll be tuning in tonight to catch the second season of Selling New York. The first episode, which premieres at 9 tonight on HGTV, follows the brokers from CORE as they attempt to sell a unit in the Urban Glass House, one of the last projects from architect Philip Johnson.
The 1,457-square-foot, two-bedroom, two-bathroom condo loft at the Urban Glass House is listed at $1.795 million. What do you get for all of that money? Well, you can peek out at Statue of Liberty and Hudson River views every morning (though, as development increases in the area views may become more limited). Inside, interiors by Annabelle Selldorf are also sure to please (and also contribute toward the price point).
Keep reading for the details and a photo tour.
The modernist luxury apartment also features full-length glass walls and 10-foot ceilings, which, thanks to the southern and western exposure, guarantees you'll get plenty of natural sunlight. To dim the view, you can rely on the installed electric shades. French white oak herringbone flooring graces the apartment, while in the kitchen Bulthaup black linoleum cabinetry, stainless steel countertops, and integrated sinks and appliances by Kuppersbusch, Miele, Viking, Sub-Zero, and Bosch guarantee that the home chef will have everything she needs on hand.
So will the brokers at CORE be able to secure their asking price for this posh apartment? Tune in tonight to find out!
