31 West 11th Street is a lovely landmarked Manhattan building that was originally erected in 1910. It features a one-story limestone base and a classic red brick façade topped by attractive cornices. There are several bay windows in the center of the building, stringcourse and marble lunette accents and a stone column-embellished entrance. The two-bedroom units overlook the rear gardens of other townhouses on 12th Street, and the three-bedroom units overlook 11th Street in the front. The older exterior windows have been replaced with Pella wood-framed Insul-Shield glass for modern energy efficiency and noise reduction.
The elegant apartments within feature rosewood flooring, recessed lighting and high ceilings. The gourmet eat-in kitchens contain top-of-the-line appliances including a Sub-Zero refrigerator, Viking stove and Miele dishwasher. They are finished with marble countertops and backsplashes and have custom walnut cabinetry. The baths offer luxurious deep tubs, radiant floor heating and glass-enclosed showers. They also have Fiore De Bosco marble mosaic surfaces for an extra touch of luxury. Each unit is also equipped with a Miele stackable washer and dryer combination for additional convenience.
Building amenities include a landscaped courtyard, a virtual doorman, bicycle and private storage privileges, and a pets welcome policy. This nine-story property is situated on a pretty, tree-lined block with other landmark-protected townhouses and apartment buildings for company. The neighborhood borders on the popular area of Greenwich Village and is close to a wealth of shopping, dining and entertainment opportunities including the large greenmarket at Union Square, Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods, Gotham and Babbo eateries, Union Square and Washington Square parks, New York University (with its well-known film school) and the New School for Social Research, institutions of higher learning. Also in the area are unique boutiques and clothing shops, movie theaters, a public library and even a bowling alley. Public transportation to other points in the city is conveniently close to the building as well.
