While the year 2000 Decorator Showcase home at 2601 Broadway returned to the market this past week asking $12,800,000 (down from $15,500,000 in 2009), the year 2010 Showcase home at 3450 Washington opened its doors to the public this past weekend.
On the market and “Price Upon Request” prior to the showcase, 3450 Washington is now “Offered at $19,500,000” (purchased by the Sperling’s for $18,000,000* in 2001). We’re not expecting any new interior shots until after the Showcase ends at the end of this month. If you happen to shoot any good candids, however…
UPDATE: Never mind that $18,000,000 number (perhaps that was asking). Tax records actually suggest a 2001 sale around $16,750,000 for 3450 Washington while a reader suggests it was $15,800,000.

    I toured the house over the weekend. I won’t comment on the design, but, as expected, the house wasn’t totally updated. Some rooms were redone down to the studs, while others just seemed to have lots of faux-finshes on top of the lath and plaster. There are also big boxy 1920’s plugs jutting out all over the place and sad looking hollow doors. As a result, it’s kind of a hodge-podge of fixed and still needs work that isn’t just cosmetic. The floor plan is also a little iffy. Its got two “wings” with lots of smallish rooms along narrow hallways. Views are ok, but not as good as a few blocks west. There’s really nothing about the interior that screams “grand!”
    Its still wildly overpriced. A sale at 11-12 million is more realistic, but hardly a guarantee.

    I saw some things that I liked. For example normally I’d never think of placing a mirror in front of a window, but this setup makes sense and provides perfect natural light for applying cosmetics. I also really liked this tilework.
    Much of the work is curiously text intensive. Though I like it, I thought text went out of style in the 1990s.
