The home and studio of the late sculptor Walter de Maria hit the market yesterday for $25 million.

De Maria resided at the four-story East Village loft-style building at 421 East 6th Street from 1980 until his death last year at age 77.

The 16,000-square-foot property was originally built as a Consolidated Edison substation in 1920 and retains several interior fixtures from that era, EV Grieve reported, citing the listing. Other features include exposed brick, a through-floor pulley system and multi-story windows.

The asking price also accounts for a vacant adjacent lot at 419 East 6th Street. John LiGreci of Cushman and Wakefield has the listing.

Elsewhere along the block, the Congregation Adas Le Israel Anshei Meseritz, located at 415 East 6th St., gave East River Partners the rights to its second floor, as part of a 99-year lease last year, as previously reported. [EV Grieve]Mark Maurer
