This ultra modern townhouse is located in Greenwich Village, which is a largely residential neighborhood on the west side of Lower Manhattan in New York City, NY. It was designed by visionary Timothy Barry in partnership with SPaN Architects and blends steel, glass, wood and stone to make a striking one-of-a-kind space. The 5-story townhouse boasts 9,000 square feet of living space with 5 bedrooms, 5.5 bathrooms, two parlors, gourmet kitchen, zen garden, den, home theater, gym, laundry room and a rooftop deck. It is available for rent at $75,000/month.


The study of light begins as you step across the Jacomo glass hallway, which extends though each floor of this magnificent home and invites you to defy gravity. Even more impressive is the free-standing elevator clad in cashmere grey mist granite that rises 65-feet and is wrapped by a floating sculptural origami steel staircase. A floor-to-ceiling glass atrium provides beautiful light and pulls you into a large entertaining space that leads to Manhattan’s most magnificent kitchen – an enormous sky-lit extension which is a house unto itself. No detail has been overlooked – from the endless white lacquer cabinetry – to the 9-foot Verde Serpentina island – to the state-of-the art appliances, including an 8-burner professional Viking range, double ovens, oversized Liebherr refrigerator, dual 36-inch Smeg dishwashers, and discreet LED lighting throughout. Steel casement doors open onto a tranquil courtyard ideal for dining al fresco, while a front bedroom with en-suite bathroom and tasteful powder room complete this floor. Ascend the sculptural staircase to the home’s second floor, where you’ll find spacious front and rear parlors that offer sleek modern fireplaces and high coffered ceilings with soft coved lighting. The front parlor is ideal for entertaining guests with its custom wet bar and chic powder room. The rear parlor is bathed in natural light from a wall of casement windows and offers direct access to a spectacular south-facing terrace with a phenomenal state-of-the-art outdoor kitchen clad in Pacific Northwest heartwood cedar. The top two floors of this prime lower Fifth Avenue Gold Coast retreat are devoted to rest, relaxation and renewal, with four large bedrooms that each have an oversized walk-in closet, magnificently high ceilings and a soothing fireplace. Connecting the rooms on both floors is an incredible bath experience with double sky-lit showers, Toto air-jet soaking tubs, double Toto bidet/toilets, and stunning Turkish marble walls. When you complete your journey to the very top of this home you’ll find a private terrace, perfect for taking in the skyline or enjoying moments of quiet reflection.The luxury continues on the lower level, where you will find a full screening room with surround sound, wine storage room, gym with bathroom, and an enormous staff kitchen replete with 2 washers and dryers, a dog grooming room and a dumb-waiter that services the entertaining floors. The house is ultra-energy efficient and run with the most cutting-edge systems including radiant heated flooring and filtered air throughout. More than a smart house, 6W9 is a brilliant house, where every detail has been carefully considered and curated with luxury and comfort in mind. It is a rare opportunity not to be missed.
