A $3 million whiteout on the Bowery

Been several months since we checked in on anything to do with 52E4, the 15 stories of condo on the Bowery and East Fourth Street.

Now, a splendiferous two-bedroom condo is back at the market. According to Streeteasy, the unit was originally listed at $2.3 million in 2008. (It was sold in November 2009 for $2,168,872, according to records.) Now, the asking price is $3 million.

And this is what you get.

According to the listing at Prudential Douglas Elliman:

Soaring 15 stories tall, 52 East 4th Street is an award winning architectural icon on The Bowery. W/ interiors by Andres Escobar, this 1,359 Sqft 2bed 2bath full-floor home is unparalleled in design, finish & luxury. A private key-locked elevator transports you to an oasis of chic: impressive 13' ceilings w/ walls of floor-to-ceiling glass & exposed beams translate into a smart, modern design. A custom white kitchen is finely appointed w/ Sub Zero & Bosche appliances, Grohe fixtures & Corian countertops. 4” French Oak floors have been bleached white to accentuate the space’s airiness & luminance. The sleek Master bath features Lea Ceramiche & Ciot tile walls, Corian floors, a Kohler Water Tile rain shower system & Toto washlet toilets. Laundry room w/ vented LG W/D & custom closets are also included. Private deeded parking space is available for purchase. Enter 52 East 4th Street thru a dramatic gated set-back entrance. Terrace w/ pool & cabanas offer a chic, serene escape from the city. Doorman from 8-8

Tempting, though white is so hard to keep clean.

An oasis of chic? Looks more like a blur of sister sledge (see what I did there?)

The dining room table refused to get along with the rest of the apartment, choosing instead to stare icily out the living room window.

So tasteful they even sprung for one of those Wild Horses of Sable Island prints.

@Ken - you remind me of this:

That house is so white it's gotta be racist.
