Here’s a co-op apartment that has everything in place, prim and proper as can be. It’s a one-bedroom, two-bathroom unit that’s located on the second floor of a West Village townhouse at 53 Horatio Street. The pre-war brick building, constructed in 1848, also looks pretty proper and stately, without any adornments or flourishes. That is carried to the interior, which has a nice but not extravagant design. The apartment was last listed in 2013 for $1,100,000, then sold soon after for $1,040,000. Two years later, the owners are looking to make a sizable profit with an ask of $1,699,000.
Upon entering on the second floor you’re greeting by a long, open living and dining room. It’s accented with hardwood floors, high ceilings, exposed brick and a working wood burning fireplace — some remnants of the home’s historic past, although it’s been modernly renovated. From the windows you have views of the building courtyard below.
A narrow galley kitchen is located off the end of the living room. It has also been renovated, with wood and glass cabinetry, stainless steel appliances, and a deep, country-style porcelain sink.
The two bedrooms are located on opposite sides of the apartment. The master has its own walk-in closet and a gut-renovated bathroom right next door. Other upgrades to the apartment include new windows, a vented washer and dryer, lots of extra storage, and wiring to “accommodate the most modern of technology in a space that embodies old-world aesthetic,” as the listing says.
And here’s the second bedroom, located at the other end of the living room. Prim and proper, indeed! This West Village apartment looks like a nice place to host a tea party, if you ask us.
