Bon Jovi sells his apartment in New York
Jon Bon Jovi is touring with a very catchy song "This house is not for sale", but in reality... If it's on sale!
We do not really know if the popular Jon Bon Jovi has done it with propaganda intentions, but the fact is that the year that he is on tour with his catchy song «This house is not for sale» has put in sale its duplex in the Big Apple… in the 150th of the Charles Street, an apartment which acquired in 2015 by 12.95 million dollars (11.56 euros) and which goes on sale by 17.25 million dollars (15.42 euros), is obvious, the singer has smell for the real estate…
The building is in a strategic position, this is confirmed not only by its location, facing the Hudson River and the Hudson River Park and near of one of the most commercial areas of Manhattan, also certifies by the interest it has aroused in many illustrious personalities of the Entertainment, such as Ben Stiller, who paid 15 million dollars (13.41 euros) for one of its homes or Irina Shayk who bought one apartment more «modest» by 6 million (5.36).
Arguably, we can say without fear of being wrong, that a part of the celebrities are very interested in the residential rehabilitation, something that we saw last year with the interest of Jennifer Lawrence for an apartment in a former bookbinding factory. The 150 Charles Street is the fabulous renovation of a former warehouse converted into a condominium of luxury in the quiet neighborhood of West Village, offering 91 residences individually designed and more than 3,700 square meters of green areas… live the Environment!
The designers who were in charge of the project are called Cook + Fox Architects, and they boast of its environmental commitment, the interiors (to the letter) are of Alan Wanzenberg, between them they have created this complex that boasts about promoting a «reflective luxury» before the enormous amount of skyscrapers that have appeared in New York. Luxury, of course, because it has private parking and an indoor pool of 23 metres in length, from which you can look to the River with placidity.
The famous residents have also to hand 1,400 square meters of common areas, decorated with elegance, which includes a 280-square-meter gym, managed by The Wright Fit, a hot tub, locker rooms and sauna, which accompanies them the Hall of entertainment, games room and the Concierge services, luxury. Inside it will be very difficult that you remember that this building was an abandoned warehouse…
And is that the Witkoff group has put all its know-how in its transformation, reinforcing its structural framework, contributing to its enveloping with quality carpentry and reinventing its brick façade. They have also had at good to create new individual entries for its residents, and they have reactivated the sidewalk to pedestrian traffic, creating a new urban landscape and conditions of high quality for its residents… you know, walking is healthy!!
But surely the good Jon Bon Jovi thought not only in walking on the outside of the building when he bought his house, and, although he appreciate the irony of to change the tar covers by green roofs (contributing to the character of Biophilia that is fashionable) he was certainly not immune to the fantastic finishes of the walls of its seven main rooms, four bathrooms and a toilet or your own garden terrace of 140 square meters.
The three façades of the building ensure daylight in all the rooms, because the external enclosures have been replaced by walls of glass from floor to ceiling, of course, with casement windows with double glass, for isolate us of the cold and the heat… from the elegant exterior corridor we get to a great room with fireplace facing the Hudson River, with access to the terrace, I do not see the time for that someone invite me to a cocktail party there…
On the ground floor of the building is the kitchen of 16 square meters, which can be reached from the corridor and that it communicates with the dining room of 20 square meters, in honor of the truth (don’t bother Jovi) I would have placed a kitchen island spacing it further, although, of course, the marble bar (like the rest of the hob), is not bad… the travel ends in a library that you can transform into bedroom and… Study of music!! (You know)
But the jewel in the Crown is at the top, of course, on the second floor of the duplex, where the owners of the property will enjoy three large and bright bedrooms. The main south-facing, with views over the river and the Statue of the Liberty, will enjoy the main bathroom with two washbasins under-worktop, of those who are both now and a huge bathtub, in addition, the master bedroom has own dressing, as it should be.
And completing the 375 square meters of the luxury apartment, two bedrooms with its own bathroom, one of them even has a small balcony. The flooring throughout the House is laminated wood except in humid rooms (which are few), has central air conditioning and gas-powered fireplace. And, if you get bored in the pool, jacuzzi, gym or games room, always will be able to attend your party room… where have a HUGE TV.
Finally, if you have to buy an apartment in New York, you have almost eighteen million dollars in your bank account (or you can get them) and still doubts about whether buying this duplex, because you fails to convince of all the written here… is that your level of requirement is according to the of a native singer from the State of New Jersey! With the nuance of it he yes bought it…
