The final townhouse at the David Chipperfield-designed 17 Jane Street, the West Village's most successful condominium. 11 Jane Street encompasses 6, 378 square feet over three levels and an immensely scaled 54-foot wide, 1, 773 square foot rear garden (the fourth largest garden downtown), featuring 4-5 bedrooms, four full baths, two half baths, and a private elevator. Enter though a private gate and doorway on Jane Street into this palatial residence, with soaring 13-foot ceilings and wide-plank white oak flooring in a custom stain throughout. The great room and adjacent library offer 42 feet of width, with large double glass doors opening onto the garden. Designed by Wirtz International of Belgium, the garden is a true oasis, with mature trees and plantings unlike any other private outdoor space downtown. Also opening onto to the garden is an office, with the floor's powder room adjacent. If desired the library is convertible to a fifth bedroom suite. The hand-painted kitchen is by Smallbone of Devises, a British company of master craftsmen turning out bespoke fitted cabinetry with refined architectural detailing. Clean, artfully calibrated lines are punctuated with custom-fabricated sinks, Churchill soapstone counters, Dornbracht fixtures and a complete Gaggenau appliance package including two dishwashers, two refrigerators, and multiple ovens. The parlor is ideal for casual moments and informal dining, or a grand formal dining room. Ascend to the second level via the staircase or a private elevator servicing all three floors of this home. The bedroom wings are split by a media or game room, providing yet another versatile living space. Two guest bedrooms overlook the townhouse's garden and feature oversized walk-in closets and windowed bathrooms. A flexible family room between the bedroom suites serves as a lounge or library area for this wing of the house. On the southern end of the floor is a bedroom suite with walk-in closet and windowed bath; it can serve as either a guest room or a sitting room and secondary bath for the primary suite if desired. The primary bedroom suite includes an entry gallery, generous bed chamber, sprawling bathroom area with a spa-inspired tub room, plus a 22-by-11 foot closet. One of two laundry rooms is also found on this level. The home's cellar level is also serviced by the private elevator and houses an oversized laundry area, powder room for staff, and direct access to the building's fitness center, lobby via the main elevator, and garage. Situated in the heart of the West Village, 17 Jane evokes the texture and look of the neighborhood's past while featuring contemporary details and modern conveniences. World-renowned architect Sir David Chipperfield, a winner of the coveted EU Prize for Contemporary Architecture - Mies van der Rohe Award, has built a reputation for helping cities define their evolving modern expressions. Together with developer Edward J. Minskoff, a longtime figure in the world of New York real estate development with an illustrious career having developed 37 million square feet of property in 10 cities around the country, Chipperfield conceived 17 Jane as a contemporary response to the surrounding nineteenth-century brownstones in this historic-landmark district. 17 Jane's timeless facade of elongated Roman-style bricks fired by Petersen Tegl, a Danish brickmaker founded in 1791, expresses Chipperfield's particular brand of dignified and detailed elegance realized through meticulous craftsmanship. Amenities include a 24/7 attended lobby featuring a 10-foot bronze Jeff Koons sculpture, Corks (Couple), full-time resident manager, resident-only private parking garage (at additional cost), fitness center with sauna, and ample storage facilities. 17 Jane both reflects its West Village residential heritage and is situated within a short distance of Hudson River Park, as well as world-class shopping, dining, recreation and culture.
