“HELP!” Is what the widow of the ever so admired John Lennon may be shouting. Yoko Ono has been IMAGINing what it will be like after getting rid of the 3 bed and 3 bath penthouse co-op in West Village. Her first attempt to sell was back in April of this year at roughly $9 million. Records show that Yoko placed the co-op back on the market 7 months later, with a significant price cut of $2.5 million. Two weeks later, she reverted back to the original asking price. Interestingly enough, the 1908 building in Manhattan that houses the unit went into contract status a few days after Ono lifted the price back up.
And besides, who wouldn’t want to live in a place that’s Lennon and Ono-ish. The interior has a classy, yet modern look and feel. You have a room that has tradiitonal brick walls, along with a big classic fireplace. Flooring is nicely varied with classic wood and carpetry. The windows that can be found here offer great views of the neighborhood. The new owner(s) can get even better views of what surrounds them and beyond. Other treats include an office, storage room, library room, personal garage, private elevator, and additional bathrooms (2 half baths). This place speaks to those who have money, wish to live a true private bachelor lifestyle in New York, and want an exuberant amount of living space.
