If you ever find yourself asking what you can get for a million dollar listing in NYC, how does a private balcony boasting expansive views of the Hudson River and the Palisades sound?
The scenic Italian-style Villa Charlotte Brontë recently listed one of their 17 units for sale at the whopping price of around $1.3M, under real estate agent Chanda Colón.
The three-bedroom triplex (three floors) apartment has a total of 1,995 square feet, coming in at $676 a square foot, reports the New York Times. The rare-to-the-market-listing offers a two-and-a-half-bath, wood fireplace, finished attic, hardwood floors, a washer and dryer, and the most accessible street entrance of all the units.
But the real star of the property is the bluestone balcony that overlooks the Hudson River and beyond! Entrances come from both the kitchen and living room, for the accessible outdoor area of your dreams.
The Villa was first constructed in the 1920s and designed by Robert W. Gardner, the architect responsible for the Staten Island Museum. Set atop a cliff, the 17-unit co-op is reminiscent of homes found on the Amalfi Coast. It consists of duplex and triplex apartments, each with their own separate entrances. Though the extensive apartment building is under one complex there are no common hallways.
Over the years, Villa Charlotte Brontë has been home to notorious figures. The current seller is a music producer who has worked with big names like Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo, among others. According to the New York Times, the third level of the triplex is actually used as a recording studio at the moment.
The villa is just a 25-minute ride from Grand Central Station on the Metro-North, under a half a mile from the Spuyten Duyvil station.
