West 19 St open house review

(remember to check the agent websites Sunday morning to see if open house is still on)
$1.525mm and $820/mo (condo) for — as I said in a September 14 open house review — “1,085 sq ft” with balcony (though what they are really selling here is serenity: “you are immediately taken by the beautiful courtyard visible from any of your oversized windows or private terrace”); on the market 3 weeks

$1.575mm and $1,422/mo (condo) for 1,342 sq ft of duplexed space with a fascinating price and listing history (it dropped $320-k last week); here’s what I said about it on Sept 2 (price drop at 251 W 19 (not #3C)) in a post focused on another listing in the building:
[it had been] an “ours alone” listing from DG Neary for $2.295mm and now an exclusive listing with Corcoran at $1.895mm [price has dropped again] …. (It traded at $1.875mm only 14 months ago; wonder what the story is there….)
[#1C] is said to be “1,342 sq ft” (duplexed) in “impeccable condition”. (There is actually a fairly small area where those “17 foot” ceilings are not halved by the mezzanine.) (This is the first Corcoran listing I remember in which there is no prose description of the apartment; I hope they did that on purpose.) Even at the new price of $1.895mm, that is a pretty premium for “1,342 sq ft” of mostly-mezzanined (8 foot ceilings) “loft” space, no matter how impeccable. But The Market (in the person of the current sellers) thought it was worth $1.875mm in June 2006. It will be very interesting to see when these folks find other buyers who agree with them about the value.

I am truly astounded that this web listing still has no prose description.

2 — 4 PM
$4mm and $1,776/mo for (2,800 sq ft??) plus “spectacular terrace”; check the pictures of this “super sexy PH loft” – I am not getting a vibe of “recently renovated by an influential, well-known designer. An exceptional blend of pre-war industrial loft spirit with today’s luxuries, this one-of-a-kind designer loft is exquisitely and tastefully done” but maybe it shows better in person (or maybe it is just me)
new to market 3 weeks ago
