Single-owner Butterfield House unit trades for $3M

 Unit 7E in the praised and distinctively modern postwar Butterfield House has sold for the first time since the building was completed in the early 1960’s at 37 West 12th Street in Greenwich Village. 

A Tribeca-based orthodontist sold the two-bedroom co-op to an attorney at the prestigious firm Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz for $3 million, according to the New York Observer.

“Butterfield House’s innovative architecture, combined with its location just around the corner from the New School and Parsons School of Design, all but guaranteed that the original residents would be intellectuals and artists,” the New York Times wrote in 2006. “Many never moved out.”

But today, increasing pricey deals have pushed out most of the hard-partying bohemian residents the building was once known for — as both straight-laced parties in the 7E deal give evidence to.
