If you’ve ever thought to yourself, “wouldn’t it be cool if they could take all the coolest aspects of those Korean superspas out in Queens and make me a house?”
Well, it’s admittedly a very weird thought, but someone apparently had it, and they even followed up on it in the West Village.
Which is what leads us to this $10.5 million townhouse on West 13th Street currently on offer from Halstead, who get poetic in the language on the listing telling us “The excitement begins on the roof.”
That proclamation might be fair (the infinity pool, outdoor cabana dining room and full bar setup do indeed create quite an exciting scene), but let’s take this step-by-step, Halstead…
We mean, slow your roll baby (we’re getting into the spa life lingo, we’ve even grown a mustache).
The rooftop excitement is the allegorical cherry on top of this very interesting (very “bathing-centric”) townhouse renovation.
From the listing’s own tour, we’ve got a garden level that can be used as a service floor or an income-generating rental, “it commands a very high rent” Halstead tells us paranthetically.
The Parlor floor has “13 foot ceilings and floor to ceiling windows” and “offers flexibility as a grand entertainment space or additional living.”
The Second floor, where the proverbial ‘magic’ will inevitably happen thanks in part to two “luxury” baths “clad in travertine marble and have Jacuzzis with built in LCD screens,” is wired to become an entertainment center (which seems redundant with the travertine marble entertainments on offer).
But, back to the roof, we are impressed, so impressed in fact that we, like Halstead, find ourselves pith-less, but will submit to Halstead’s attempt to get it all out through use of bullets;
- Infinity edge plunge pool * Rooftop bar and fully fitted kitchen
- Climate controlled loggia with dining for 12
- Blu-Ray entertainment system and surround sound s
Get out those chenille robes and invite us over, we might even lose this terrible new mustache…
Our W. Village Spa Castle might not look so different from the outside...
But once indoors, things look different than we might have thought...
Like the baroque-ly modern living room
And this bedroom (we'll politely beg off adjectives on this one)
Ditto on the other image here...
But here's our plunge pool for two... with mirrors... this just got dirty
The outdoor "loggia"
Where "the excitement starts" and might go on for a while (or not, if you've exhausted yourself in the plunge pool room)
