This $16m three-storey Manhattan apartment has greenery at every turn…
A lush winter garden with 18-ft ceiling leads into the Greene Street oasis, described by agent Douglas Elliman as ‘wildly romantic’.
The living room is decked with charred wood panelled walls that have been reclaimed from the roof, and the rustic space opens onto an adjacent dining room which seats 24 people beneath timber-beamed ceilings.
Upcycling continues in the Manhattan apartment’s kitchen, which features reclaimed hemlock cabinets, French encaustic floor tiles, and a vintage 1930s Monell sink. It also looks onto a reflecting pool and covered patio space.
A steel staircase leads to the Manhattan property’s upper levels, and you can access the first of its flora-filled terraces from the master bedroom (complete with copper bath tub and marble bathroom ensuite).
On the top level is another bedroom and glass-encased ‘star-gazing’ lounge – as well as another private terrace with views out over the city.
All those plants don’t come cheap though – maintenance for the ‘harmonious digs’ runs to the tune of $2,300 per month.
