If you’re going to move to New York, you should probably find a pad that provides a view of the city. In fact, in the immortal words of Kanye West, we’re talking “Top of the world, baby. Top of the world.”
And when the digs with that fantastic view was once the home of Kim Kardashian West and Yeezy himself, you really should take a look, even if you don’t have the $4.7 million to actually purchase it.
Listed by Emily Beare with CORE New York, the 2,427-square-foot space at SoHo 25 was designed by Claudio Silvestrin, and was featured in Vogue and Elle Decor. Once two separate units, the current configuration makes the home a one-bedroom, one-and-a-half bath home, but Beare says it could easily be converted to become a two-bedroom unit.
The home was built to be a sanctuary, clearly, and to maximize the views and the light coming in from the numerous windows.
“The expansive foyer is illuminated by soft lighting, with carefully hidden floor-to-ceiling storage that covers the length of the hallway,” said Beare. “Thirteen oversized windows lead you into the living areas while offering picturesque city views to the north and east.”
Like to cook, but want to also be mixing it up with your guests? The kitchen is replete with SubZero and Miele appliances, and a customized Gaggenau cooktop, but it’s also aesthetically pleasing, with a stone island, pearwood cabinetry, and French limestone flooring.
An open floorplan provides seamless movement from the living and dining areas to the kitchen, too. Ten-foot ceilings and all those windows provide light, bright entertaining space that still provides plenty of places to display artwork.
The master suite has radiant floor heating, generous closet space, lots of natural light, and a serene, neutral color scheme. The bathroom boasts a second stone island that anchors a spa-like space.
And if you can’t picture Kanye West living in anything that isn’t luxe, rest assured home also includes a Savant home automation system with automated window shades, custom lighting, and audio wired throughout the home.
Building amenities include a 24-hour doorman and a rooftop deck with 360-degree views of downtown Manhattan.
Obviously, this was the Wests’ abode pre-children (in fact, Variety says the home was first his bachelor pad), and they’re not the current sellers.
