The megastar lived in the building in the 1960s and ’70s, now it’s your turn!
A skinny Greenwich Village building that once served as Bob Dylan’s house design/recording studio has been converted into just four full-floor apartments. Bob Dylan’s 1973 New York City recording studio and rehearsal space has been transformed into a luxury rental building, with units ranging from $12,500 to $18,000 per month, and now can be yours! Pack your bags and run to catch this modern design available!
The project, located at 124 West Houston Street, has been in the works since 2016 when Dib Development’s Ronald Dib bought the building for $15.4 million. Before the sale, the building had served as the private home and studio for artists Madeline Gins and Shusaku Arakawa, who originally purchased the building in 1966. They lived there until their deaths in 2014 and 2010, respectively.
For us, although the apartment is now a luxury space, it still has the vintage soul of Bob, which makes everything even better. Well, we hope you are so excited as we are! This is a lifetime moment and we should take these opportunities. If you’re Dylan’s fan as we are, don’t miss the chance to live in this unique vintage solid memory (and if you have a lot of money as well).
Dylan’s connection to the place happened in the late 1960s and early ’70s when he used the ground floor as a private rehearsal studio, as we previously told you. As recently as 2014, when the building was first being prepped for sale, some rough recordings that Dylan had made there were found in one of its closets. These interior design trends used in the apartment are going to be viral for sure!
The units offer 12-foot ceilings, dark hardwood flooring (that vintage industrial style characteristic that we love so much), painted brick, and exposed beam details. The living room of the units is anchored by a brick fireplace, where arched, paneless windows offer stunning, clear views of the city below. Bob Dylan’s house design has this unique touch incorporated and the ones that are going to live there have to respect.
The apartments’ home decor also includes the usual high-end finishes and appliances such as vintage lighting, as well as laundry, custom walk-in closets, and central air and heating. Building amenities have a 24-hour doorman, keyed elevators (with a private entrance on each floor, naturally), and a fancy lobby.
Depending on the unit, there are also bookcases (which were used by Dylan) as well. And the penthouse boasts access to the private rooftop garden.
As you can see, this house design is a unique vintage treasure that needs to be carefully taken. The apartments still empty, with no furniture, so we have some ideas on how to decorate it.
Here you have some lighting ideas to decorate former Bob Dylan’s empty apartment. All the lamps you see in these pictures are from DelightFULL’s Heritage and Graphic Collections. This way, you can still have a modern and luxury style, but also not losing the vintage industrial style so known from Dylan’s era.
