This parlor floor co-op at 135 Perry Street in the West Village is more than meets the eye: Listed as a one-bedroom for $3,500 a month, it’s configured as a studio–and according to the listing, it was once a two-bedroom. So whatever you imagine for the space, it could be a reality. Of course, you’ll have to get permission from the owner as it’s currently being offered as a rental. And we’re guessing the co-op board will need to be involved. If you leave it the way you found it, you’ll still have a stylish if somewhat linear home in a neighborhood everyone’s fighting over.
Co-ops aren’t required to list their size, so you’ll have to guess how much space this “generously sized” floor-through offers. Rustic and bright, with pre-war bones, the apartment looks out on the tree-tops of cobblestoned Perry Street. In addition to a cozy living room with a decorative fireplace and slate mantle, you’ll find a neat white kitchen with a washer/dryer tucked away out of sight.
A cloud-like bedroom is even cozier (we’d imagine the living room and bedroom could be swapped). To make sure clutter stays in its proper place, built-in storage is a priority. You’ll need to get board approval to rent this little gem, so start getting your papers in order.
