Welcome to Brick Underground’s luxury pick of the week, a feature spotlighting a condo, co-op, or townhouse for sale with an asking price of at least $3,000,000, the current entry threshold for luxury apartments in Manhattan. If you’re in the market for a high-end abode, you should know that while sales have slowed considerably over the past couple of years, that trend is starting to reverse as sellers come to grips with the new market reality and adjust their prices accordingly. It's good news for your wallet—just be aware that many luxe listings won’t linger on the market indefinitely.

Some NYC luxury buildings are unassuming from the outside—and this 2010 West Village condo building, 385 West 12th St. is one of them. The facade is a mix of different-sized windows with panels of glass and weathered copper. Depending on your taste, it may not exactly signal upscale, although the address—a cobblestone block off West Street, less than three blocks from the Whitney Museum of American Art and the entrance to the High Line—should tip you off to its desirability.

Of course, inside apartment #4E—a three bedroom, two and a half bath with an open layout asking $7,500,000, you’re clearly in the lap of luxury. The apartment is 2,526 square feet and has interiors by FURY Design (check out the dramatic, bronze-colored, 10-foot ceilings) and three exposures.

The seller is the original owner, who bought the apartment in 2010 for $4,862,143. The maintenance here is $3,816 a month.

You enter via a private elevator into a foyer with a partition and large closet. 



The living/dining area spans the length of the apartment and has large windows, a limestone gas fireplace, and oak flooring. 


The chef’s kitchen has custom millwork cabinetry, honed Basaltina volcanic rock countertops, mosaic backsplash and under-cabinet lighting. Appliances are from Viking, Miele, and Fisher Paykel. 


The building has a shared rooftop lap pool and hot tub, outdoor shower, gas grills, 24-hour doorman/concierge, and storage.


Other features include an integrated home automation and entertainment system, a dual-zone soundproof HVAC system and Lutron shades.
