Some folks opt to spend tens of millions buying their very own townhouse. But a more economical and harder option might be to piece parts of one together like a jigsaw puzzle.
One couple in just closed on their second co-op apartment in the same Chelsea townhouse within six months of their first purchase.
According to New York City records, former Gillette executive Michelle Viotty and Lynn Fitzer bought one unit in a cooperative apartment building at 467 West 22nd Street that is actually comprised of two townhouses joined together. They paid $2,250,000 for that first apartment.
Two weeks ago Viotty and Fitzer bought another co-op in the same building, paying $2,100,00 for the nearly 1500 square foot second unit. They got quite a deal from neighbors Richard Bascetta and Robin Pendleton, paying $200,000 less than the asking price of $2.3 million listed by Corcoran real estate broker Jim Brawders. Now those are swell neighbors!
Brawders listing shouted out his enthusiasm for the property (Note: the emphasis is entirely from the broker!)
“This kind of apartment (and lifestyle) almost NEVER comes on the market –the combined PARLOR FLOORS of the two contiguous townhouses (now a 6 unit co-op) BEAUTIFULLY RENOVATED on CHELSEA’S BEST BLOCK…”
In addition to a magnificent private garden behind the apartment, the latest apartment has two (2) fireplaces for those cold NYC nights: one in the master bedroom, and another in the living room.
