Nestled on the bank of the venerable Hudson River in the heart of the West Village, 400 West Street is an ultra-chic home for Manhattan's most discerning purchaser seeking a lifestyle consonant with downtown living. New renovations have raised the bar on the standard of unpretentious luxury. This one-of-a-kind, exclusive West Village townhouse is nothing short of magnificent. The installation of a spacious state-of-the-art elevator affords easy transport of up to 8 occupants from the first floor to the stunning stone and Ipe wood rooftop terrace, which has also been exquisitely enhanced and includes thoughtful and unexpected details throughout. The designer owners have created a breathtaking outdoor oasis with a large teak wood hot tub, outdoor TV, wood-burning fireplace, and fully-equipped kitchen covered by an electric awning. Complete with a wood-burning pizza oven, gas barbecue, refrigerator, wine cooler, ice maker and beer tap for seamless entertaining. Nothing compares to this private Mecca in NYC to savor the ever-changing view of the Hudson River at the days end.

Created by the renowned design team of Bob and Cortney Novogratz,, this unique 22.75-foot-wide townhouse exemplifies a brilliant blend of the modern and the vintage, the use and flow of space, of uptown features in a Downtown location: a basketball court, screening room, incomparable entertaining spaces, over-sized bedrooms and a private garage. But the crowning glory is its perfect position overlooking the Hudson River, with glamorous views from all floors, glorious sunsets over the Palisades and the enthralling sight of great ships entering the harbor.

The private garage not only provides parking convenience but is a work of art in itselfclad in a distinct mural of blue hues by famed artist Richard Woods. The street entry leads to a stunning mosaic entry hall and mud room. A stainless steel and glass stairway that begins on the ground floor and ascends to all levels anchors the home. The first level - which is built to the full 93 feet - is built out with an indoor basketball court which converts to a home theater. On the second floor and above, the triple-plated and virtually soundproof glass windows of the facade angle outward as a unique architectural accent, bathed in sunlight, showcasing the splendid views. The entire second floor is a haven for formal and informal gatherings. To the West is a huge open kitchen and dining room and to the East is a living room with a glass garage door that opens up to onto a large terraced landscaped outdoor space of stone and glass. This level blends beautifully to yield the ideal indoor/outdoor entertaining space. Boffi cabinetry and Bisazza mosaic tiles adorn the 4 full baths on the third, fourth and fifth floors. With an enormous third floor master suite and 2 bedrooms each on the fourth and fifth floors, each bedroom spans the width of the house, creating sun-splashed spaces and large private bedrooms.
