If you can’t be a TV star, you might as well live like one.
The so-called “Latimer House,” currently listed for $6 million in the Washington Square neighborhood, might be recognizable to some as the set of AMC’s TV show Dispatches from Elsewhere. It’s also played host to a variety of local events, including a book signing by Hillary Clinton.
Located at 1200 Latimer St., the famous house stands out even more with its unique, gray box exterior. The modern home was built in 1997 and features three bedrooms and five bathrooms. The official listing is represented by Robin Halpern of Compass.
The Latimer House interior is much more comfortable than its sleek, stark facade. Large windows allow rooms to fill with sunshine, while the floors match the same grey as the outside, albeit with a slightly warmer tone.
A large staircase is located in the middle of the living room, as well as a glass elevator that leads up to other parts of the house. The floors are built to look like one another, with a spacious living area. All living areas provide a wide, open space big enough to fit furniture items, and for people who need space for clothes, the Latimer House has a walk-in closet to fit as many items as one needs.
The main bathroom located in the largest bedroom is rather unique in design. An open space concept reveals a stall shower with glass doors rather that stands free rather than being pushed up against a wall. The area is not only spacious but bright with ample windows. It and another bathroom in a smaller room feature a unique blue tile design and industrialized sinks.
The kitchen resembles a restaurant with a steel countertop and built-in appliances. The setting is ideal for anyone who likes to cook and wants to feel like a professional chef in their own home.
Because the house is quite open, each floor can be used for various purposes. The desks and sunlight make every corner of the house an ideal place to work from home or study. There are several bookshelves throughout each floor as well as lounge space.
The highlight of the Latimer House would be the outdoor deck located on the rooftop. The space can be used for various outdoor activities. Moreover, the house has a garden on the ground floor as well as balconies on each floor, providing ample space in a city-based setting.
According to its designers, David Slovic and Ligia Rave-Slovic “The Latimer House was designed to live in a life-sized piece of art." Truly an urban oasis, the Latimer House offers flexibility to meet all of your needs, regardless of what they may be.
