City Solarium:

“City solarium

West 11th Street is a warm, bright, three-storey conservatory town home. Whether you’re a hardy outdoor type or a blossom of delicate constitution, this home is purpose-built to cultivate all comers. With two bedrooms, five bathrooms, a handful of terraces, and a rolling landscape of sublimely appointed living, eating, and entertaining space, naturally one cannot help but suspect there is no more abundant terrain to be found over hill or dale throughout the five boroughs.

Iron and glass

Your host is the consummate creative, a robust gentleman of the city with his hands in the worlds of music, film, photography, and production. An entrepreneur through and through and so is often away on far-off paths in pursuit of fertile prospects.

Greenhouse effect

From sage to glass-bottle green, verdant hues are in season throughout West 11th Street. The soaring living space is a bouquet of mint and rich navy, radiant with a riotous tumble of bamboo fronds and the gracious shade of broad-leafed tropical foliage. A magnificent trellis of exposed brick nearby neatly divides the dining room from a startlingly superlative kitchen of brushed steel, frosted glass, and fine-grained blonde hardwood. Soak in an outpouring of natural light on the terrace, or wend your way downstairs to thrall in the profusion of growing things that luxuriate in the blush of a skylit atrium. Down the hall, your master bedroom and washroom are synchronous in a wealth of raw brick, rough-hewn wood, precise green glass tile, and cut slate panelling. From its penthouse terrace to the plush media room at its roots, resplendent West 11th Street is an urban terrarium nonpareil.

Taking root

Locals agree, there is no lovelier or more charmed quarter than the West Village, whose pleasing, arboreal avenues are renowned for darling shops and sweet cafes. Strike out westward to catch sight of the Hudson (and set foot on the green necklace of parkways that band the waterfront); head a few blocks north and you’ll pick up the root of the High Line Park. To tend greener pastures afield, seek the Christopher Street subway station just a quick walk away.”
