49 Downing Street is a building of note in Greenwich Village for a number of reasons. The late 1800s horse stable is on the National Register of Historic Places. And as a 10-unit co-op, it has housed Yoko Ono, who bought an apartment in 1995 for her son Sean Lennon and sold in 2014 for $8.3 million. The latest apartment to hit the market here is this two-bedroom unit, asking $2.8 million, which boasts stunning windows that decorate the stable’s historic facade.

Apartment units in the co-op have been designed in a variety of ways–just check out this super modern apartment that hit the market last summer. This unit, however, is working with the natural bones of the horse stable structure. The grand living/dining area (separated by a few steps, which creates dedicated areas for each) is decked out with high beamed ceilings, exposed brick walls and a wood-burning fireplace.

Both the dining area and kitchen are large enough to accommodate a big party. The kitchen features custom cabinets and ample storage space.

Really, though, the highlight of this unit are the round and arched windows in each room, which face Downing Street. This is the only apartment in the co-op that boasts the unique and historic window designs.

The picture windows, surrounded by exposed brick, in each bedroom are just perfect. We know everybody loves the floor-to-ceiling windows, but there’s something to be said of smaller, well-designed windows too.

Here’s an outside look at 49 Downing Street, which was sensitively converted to a residence. The co-op is within walking distance of the West Village, Soho, and Greenwich Village: all charming neighborhoods to match this charming building.
