Penthouse-B, The Shephard, New York City Built in 1896, The Shephard is a hallmark of the fashionable West Village’s landscape, cutting a fine figure on the corner of a quiet tree-lined street. To realize the building’s transformation, design firm Gachot Studios enhanced the historic structure’s character with upgraded infrastructure, technology and interior finishes for the ultimate in modern luxury. Now the 24-hour attended, carriage-house lobby leads to a wood-paneled library and lush private garden. Amenities include an intimate residents’ spa, recreation area with a golf simulator and screening room, and a state-of-the-art gym with a climbing wall. Of the three duplex penthouses, just one remains available. Penthouse-B has 4,763 interior sq ft and 1,475 sq ft of exterior space. Four bedrooms, four bathrooms, an eat-in kitchen and living room with fireplace are accompanied by an upstairs library with wet bar, curved turret with skylight and three terraces, including one with an outdoor kitchen and a roof deck with 360-degree views.
