This pre-war three-bedroom condominium 59 West 12th Street in Greenwich Village begins with the cachet of being in a sought after building known as The Governor, built by famous 20th century developers Bing and Bing and designed by renowned architect Emery Roth. Asking for $5,990,000, this remodeled residence has sleek, understated architectural details, graceful proportions, carefully crafted updates, and enough closet space to suit a diva with red carpet ambitions and a lifetime of Met Gala costumes.

Enter the 10th floor aire into a classic gallery framed by Venetian plaster walls, high beamed ceilings, herringbone parquet floors and a hall closet. A classic Manhattan living room adjoins a spacious yet cozy dining room; both overlook the townhouses of 12th Street and the skyline beyond. A working fireplace with a Chesney marble mantle provides both visual and literal warmth.

A glazed galley kitchen has a classic Manhattan apartment layout. Cabinets are warm wood, counters are black granite, and appliances are up-to-date and high-end, including a Viking range, Bosch dishwasher, SubZero refrigerator, and separate wine refrigerator.

Access the home’s tranquil master bedroom through a hallway lined with enough custom mahogany closet space for four seasons of adornment; the bedroom itself is 23 feet long, with another working fireplace, built-in dressers, and great city views. A vast mahogany dressing room is dimensioned and personalized. The suite’s glass-walled bathroom features heated floors, dual sinks, a marble-clad walk-in shower, and Venetian plaster walls.

Two smaller bedrooms are nonetheless impressive. All have ensuite bathrooms and large walk-ins.

Modern upgrades include a Lutron lighting system, individually zoned air conditioning, audio system with in-wall speakers, and motorized blinds. Along with the rare combination of pre-war charm and condo convenience, the building offers a full-time doorman, resident manager, storage, bike storage, laundry room, and children’s playroom. . Pets and pied-à-terre are welcome.
