Thanks to the use of bold colors, prints, and patterns, this historic West Village co-op becomes a one-of-a-kind abode. On a quaint cobblestone block, the apartment at 288 West 12th Street successfully melds original details, like the wide-plank pine floors and three wood-burning fireplaces, with funky details, from its painted ceilings and doors to the duck-egg blue cabinets in the renovated kitchen. The home is now on the market for $2,375,000.

Up two flights of stairs and through the front door, you’ll find a cheerful foyer decorated with designer-favorite Schumacher wall coverings.

Sunlight streams through the two double-hung windows in the living room, providing tree-top and neighborhood views. Adding to the room’s warmth is the stone-encased wood-burning fireplace, one of three found in the apartment.

Next door is the windowed renovated galley kitchen, which features a fun contrast of duck egg-blue cabinets with brass pulls with a bright yellow AGA classic gas range. Other designer touches include Carrera marble countertops, a farmhouse sink, and an integrated Miele dishwasher and refrigerator.

The primary suite takes up an entire wing of the home and has enough space to fit a king-sized bed. The space features a wood-burning fireplace, an attached, pastel-hued dressing room with a wall of closets, and a narrow en-suite bath with subway tile and black granite vanity.

The windowed second bedroom, which features built-in shelves, a fireplace, and an additional closet, could easily serve as a home office/library.

While it retains its historic charm, the home does meet modern needs and is outfitted with upgraded electrical, plumbing, and mini-split systems for air conditioning and heat, according to the listing. On a quintessential West Village corner, the townhouse was built in 1848 and contains just eight apartments, with French bistro Cafe Cluny as the ground-floor tenant.
