This post was written by Dana Schulz for 6sqft.
You won’t find any paint-splattered masterpieces here, but you will get the exclusive bragging rights of saying you live in the former home of Jackson Pollock at 46 Carmine Street. And if that wasn’t enough of a conversation starter, the Greenwich Village building was once owned by Aaron Burr.
Million Dollar Listing New York star Luis D. Ortiz announced the $1.25 million listing via Instagram, which is not surprising considering how photogenic this one-bedroom, top-floor unit is. The 800-square-foot home boasts 14-foot, Tudor-style beamed ceilings with skylights, exposed whitewashed brick walls, and a cozy fireplace.
The address dates back to 1827, and the brick walls and wide-plank wood floors in the hallways of unit 3 are original. The apartment also features a soaking tub, separate loft-turned-office, and a cozy, windowed reading nook.
The aqua-accented, open kitchen comes complete with a double-drawer refrigerator, separate freezer, Bosch dishwasher, Verona stove, and a Pirelli floor. And if you feel like grilling, the building offers a shared garden with a barbecue setup.
Interestingly, it’s said that Pollock chose to call this apartment home because 46 was his lucky number. But even if you don’t exhibit the same superstitions as the Abstract Expressionist, you’ll surely still get lucky by snatching up this storied unit.
