You could pretend you live in your own West Village townhouse with this rental, which comes with a private front door you enter off the street. Located at 344 West 12th Street, a tree-lined and cobblestoned stretch between Greenwich and Washington Streets, your front door will take you right into a pre-war one bedroom with a wood burning fireplace, the original hardwood floors and French doors. Though it’s in a co-op building, this apartment is up for rent at $4,000 a month.
The lovely living room, painted in a robins egg blue, may not be huge, but it’s packed with prewar charm. Details include a fireplace mantle and built-in storage.
The eat-in kitchen, which offers a bit of separation between the cooking and dining areas, is lined with wainscoting. The building’s original hardwood floors line this space, too.
French doors from the living room lead into the single bedroom. The window looks out on the townhouses of West 12th Street.
Who wouldn’t love a private street entrance right into their apartment? Not only do you get some extra privacy, you have four window boxes to plant with flowers every summer.
And to top it all off–literally–is the landscaped roof deck shared by all residents. Other amenities this co-op offers include a voice intercom security, bike storage room and central laundry room. But none of those quite beat the perk of a personal entrance off the cobblestone street.
