The Shephard Neighborhood:

West Village Address: 275 West 10th Street

The Shephard features 38 residences and more than 25 unique layouts ranging from 2-5 bedrooms. Originally built in 1894 as a 12-story warehouse, the building was converted into apartments in 1975. The Naftali Group has painstakingly gut-renovated the entire building down to its original structure, installing brand new systems and interiors and adding three penthouses as well as a new lobby entrance and private resident’s garden at 275 West 10th Street. The Shephard features a stunning façade of pronounced granite and brick accented by distinctive large arched windows.

Amenities: A host of amenities include a gym, lounge, Sports Court with basketball hoop, and separate sauna and steam rooms. There’s also a pilates studio, golf simulator/screening room, rock climbing bouldering wall and game room, a private garden, and a private library.

Nearby attractions: Hudson River Greenway, Jefferson Market Library, Labyrinth Theater Company, Whitney Museum of American Art, Washington Square Park, the Highline, and more.

Why we love it: The Shephard’s design highlights spacious, extraordinary custom homes that are a graceful combination of the building’s pre-war sensibilities with a modern element that is suitable and functional for families that are just blocks from the Hudson River Greenway and its hiking and bike trails with picturesque vistas of the Hudson River along with other parks and playgrounds.
