Stunning downtown NYC penthouse back on sale with $1M price hike to $9M

Real Estate

A striking East Village penthouse, one notably marked by ceilings clad in reclaimed wood, has returned to market for $8.95 million — $1 million above its asking price in September.

The two-bedroom duplex at 235 E. 11th St., which also has a 1,000-square-foot landscaped terrace off the living space, belongs to interior designer Alfredo Paredes, who spent some three decades working for Ralph Lauren.

Most recently, Paredes was the executive vice president and chief retail creative officer for the brand.

During his time there, according to 6sqft, he outfitted Polo boutiques, Midtown’s see-and-be-seen Polo Bar and even led the furniture/home lines. (He launched Alfredo Paredes Studio last year.)

That said, his home doesn’t lack any chic touches. The look is “bohemian, yet industrial,” with other details including floor-to-ceiling casement French doors and French limestone floors.

Other accents include a woodburning fireplace underneath ceilings beamed with reclaimed wood.

Paredes bought the unit for $3.7 million in 2007.

The unit has a double-height entry hall with a modern-looking staircase, a 40-by-18-foot great room with 13-foot ceilings and a woodburning fireplace, as well as a windowed kitchen. Those limestone floors? On the main level, they’re heated.

The windowed kitchen has access to the 1,000-square-foot landscaped terrace.
