The luxury real estate market in New York is abuzz with news of a recently listed Jed Johnson-designed co-op. The apartment is located on the seventh floor of 120 East End Ave, a property developed by Vincent Astor in 1931. Johnson remodeled and designed the apartment in collaboration with Alan Wanzenberg and Thad Hayes. Bearing Johnson's signature mix of elegance and comfort, the property has been listed for $11.95 million.
Overlooking the city's beautiful Carl Schurz Park and Gracie Square, the apartment is located in a pre-war building built in 1931. The fourteen room property boasts six bedrooms, 5 baths, enormous windows, a chef's kitchen (complete with butler's pantry), a fireplace, a library, a storage vault and a maid's room. The building itself offers a doorman, elevator and gym, with a monthly maintenance fee of $8,941.
Johnson, an interior designer and film director, rose to fame as part of Andy Warhol's Factory clique. He left his mark on New York, winning the Interior Design Magazine Hall of Fame Award before his untimely passing in the TWA Flight 800 explosion of 1996.
Joshua Wesoky and Serena Boardman of Sotheby's have the listing.
