Is this New York City or Greenville? 5 W North is an elegant and graceful pre-war (1892) loft condominium in the heart of downtown Greenville. Steps from the wonderful boutiques, coffee shops and restaurants that bring Greenville's downtown such acclaim. From the roaring twenties, through the psychedelic sixties, this is the first time this grand dame has been publicly offered on the market.
Handsome architectural elements and bespoke features throughout. This unit was totally renovated and meticulously restored. Some of her architectural elements include original herringbone hardwood floors, gorgeous antique moldings and chair railing, antique doors and hardware. Two balconies add to the European flair of this pied-à-terre and bring lots of light into both the living room and the master suite.
A bright living room boasts a gas log fireplace, balcony and those stunning herringbone hardwoods. Dining is adjacent to the kitchen and features a barrel ceiling. The kitchen is a delight, with its commercial gas range, walk-in pantry and bespoke features like an antique kitchen island from Paris, and reclaimed marble counters from an old courthouse.

5 W North is an urban oasis with provenance.
Greenville's downtown has long been one of the Upstate's most popular destinations for shopping, dining and entertainment, and over the past few years, has amassed a multitude of accolades and awards from national publications. Livability recently ranked it one of the Top 10 Best Downtowns in the country, and The New York Times called Greenville "a national model for a pedestrian-friendly city center."
Greenville has focused on creating a vibrant downtown that is authentic, sustainable and most importantly, for people. With wide sidewalks, outdoor plazas and streetside dining, downtown Greenville offers a pedestrian-friendly atmosphere that has been compared to that of a European city.
Known for its exceptional beauty, the two most distinctive natural features of downtown Greenville are its lush, tree-lined Main Street and the stunning Reedy River Falls, located in the heart of Falls Park. The award-winning Liberty Bridge in Falls Park serves as Greenville's signature postcard setting, and downtown's extensive collection of public artwork adds beauty and energy to its public spaces. During the day, downtown is home to over 20,000 employees. At night, area residents and visitors flock to downtown to take advantage of its extensive offering of cultural, entertainment and dining options. Not surprisingly, downtown has also become one of the most desirable residential districts in and around Greenville, giving the area an even more well-rounded character.
