The Greenwich Village cooperative 39 East 10th Street was designed in 1870 by James Renwick, the architect also responsible for nearby Grace Church and St. Patrick’s Cathedral. The five-story brick building only has 10 units, and this three-bedroom asking $1.995 million is one of them. Inside, a narrow floorplan connects 1,600 square foot of space. There are three bedrooms, a living room, an eat-in kitchen, and office space with some fun surprises thrown in: working wood-burning fireplaces, Art Deco lighting, tons of well-designed shelving and views out onto the building’s quaint common garden.
From the living room, an exposed brick doorway leads to a long, narrow hallway that runs the length of this floor-through apartment. The hallway connects the living room, on the south end of the apartment, to the master bedroom, on the north side. In between, there are two smaller bedrooms that could be combined to make a large second bedroom. The living room boasts great floor-to-ceilings shelving, as does the main hallway. There are also great Art Deco style light fixtures above.
The kitchen, too, has great shelving and storage space. It’s large enough to hold a dining room table, which is good because it’s not off an open living/dining area.
The master bedroom has the second wood-burning fireplace. Windows in here look over the building’s garden.
You can access the garden through an additional room that’s right off the kitchen pantry. (It’s big enough to be used as an office or exercise space, although there’s no window in there.) And outside is a well-maintained, landscaped outdoor space for residents to share. A nice building amenity for a very nice apartment.
