Image of Shawn Henderson Home West Village 791 Greenwich St. #3

Listed for $1.6 million, this sophisticated 1-bedroom is asking well under the neighborhood median asking price of $2 million.

Brand new to the market, this 1-bedroom at 791 Greenwich St. is currently owned by Shawn Henderson, an Architectural Digest AD100 and Elle Decor A-List interior designer whose work has also been featured in The New York Times.

It’s listed for $1.6 million, which by WV standards makes it a great deal: The median asking price for 1-bedrooms in the neighborhood is a cool $2 million. Not quite sold yet? Let’s take a tour.

Spanning the entire third floor of the building, this apartment nails the whole modern-organic look. Rustic accents, like exposed brick and reclaimed wood beams, abound throughout. A nest-like pendant hangs over the restored decorative fireplace in the living room, a dramatic statement lamp forged out of sandstone articulates the kitchen counters and, off in the corner, a yucca tree wiggles upward, nearly reaching the beams above.

Henderson’s effortless attention to organizational detail makes the space feel rich and uncluttered. In his own words, “I didn’t want anything too fussy, but at the same time, I tried to introduce details that made it interesting.”

There are casual stacks of well-curated books, a handy bamboo-and-gold coat rack stands to the left of the door, and a liquor cabinet tucked within an antique iron-grill armoire is particularly inspired. Unfortunately, many of these decorative choices will not carry over for the buyers. But some will, like the walk-in closet’s custom built-in cabinetry and the bathroom’s burnished brass fixtures, custom vanity and oversized walk-in rain shower.

The apartment offers a completely functional layout, which is unusual for a classic West Village walk-up. In the front of the home there’s a generous entertaining space with a powder room for guests, while the back holds a well-appointed bedroom suite including ensuite bath, office nook and the aforementioned walk-in closet (it’s huge!).

Still not sold? We leave you with one last thought: in-unit laundry.
