Located in the heart of Greenwich Village, 80 Washington Place is an extraordinary townhome that has been lovingly restored and converted into a single-family residence by William Rainero, a passionate developer who grew up in the house. Rainero’s grandfather purchased and renovated the house in the ‘60s. At the time, the house consisted of nine apartments, some of which Rainero’s grandfather rented out – far from what it is today.
Now 80 Washington Place is a seven floor terrace which includes a multi-function mezzanine, a two-story living room that opens to a peaceful Zen garden, a gourmet kitchen, a catering kitchen, a 700 bottle cellar, an interior fountain that was once the buildings coal shaft, a lift, a media center, bedrooms with gorgeous en suite bathrooms, a full-floor master with an incredible garden view, a home spa and fitness center, a billiard room and a sprawling rooftop (with another kitchen) for lavish urban entertaining while viewing the Empire State Building and the Freedom Tower.
In terms of NYC living it just doesn’t get much better than this. The house has recently been sold for an undisclosed figure around 31.5 million complete with a full concierge service that will do everything, including assisting in the selection of schools, chefs, housekeepers, and artwork.
