The Greenwich Village apartment of Hamish Bowles has been listed for $2.9 million
Having lived in the home since 2008, the home's owner has recently moved back to London where she's been working as editor in chief of World of Interiors and global editor at large of Vogue.
He packed up his life in New York City and moved back to London as soon as he was informed that Hamish Bowles would be the new editor in chief of World of Interiors in 2021. Hamish Bowles is currently global editor at large for Vogue and is based in London.
This new chapter in his life has forced him to leave behind the charming two-bedroom apartment he shared with his wife before she passed away, which had recently been put up for sale in Greenwich Village, according to Rich Report.
With a price tag of $2,900,000 and monthly maintenance fees of $3,758, the apartment at 45 East 9th Street has been put on the market with a Sotheby's International Realty listing with an asking price of $2,900,000 with monthly maintenance fees of $3,758.
It should come as no surprise that Bowles, who for many years has been regarded as a shepherd of design and fashion, has had his former residence featured in a number of interior publications, including the November 2014 edition of World of Interiors and New York Behind Closed Doors published in 2017.
Featuring patterned wall coverings, vintage decor, and eclectic furnishings, the 1,400-square-foot apartment is decorated in many original architectural elements, as well as a few Bowles-specific touches such as intricate details in the drapes and lighting fixtures.
The untouched features of the mid-1920s-era home include its wall molding, hardwood floors, fireplace, and 16-and-a-half-foot coffered ceilings and are among the most impressive and interesting characteristics of the property.
There are a number of new additions to the house, some of which include custom millwork and a hyper-realistic painted door that is often amusingly enough to stump guests.
On the first and second floors of this brick and limestone building, which lies between Broadway and University Place, this beautiful apartment features a large foyer, a galley kitchen with a bathroom, and a bedroom-turned-dining room on the first floor, and on the second floor, a primary bedroom with a bathroom that is separate from the main room.
Hamish Bowles bought the property in 2008 in which he lived after living in the home for many decades prior to Hamish Bowles doing so. Prior to Hamish Bowles moving into the unit that year, the home had been owned by a literary agent who had lived there since the 1950s. “Before the pandemic I led a strangely peripatetic life and my New York apartment was a wonderfully comforting place to return to,” Bowles said. “During the pandemic it became a salvation—and a marvelous place for me to call home.”
