In the world of New York real estate, there’s generally a rule: wood floors are good, and carpeting… not so much. It gets dirty, doesn’t look as authentic, and there are usually gorgeous wood floors hiding underneath. This is especially true for loft apartments, which are typically dominated by wood flooring throughout. But not this one, at 12 East 14th Street in Greenwich Village. And you know what? We don’t hate it. Maybe it’s the handsome blue color and the way it blends into the furniture. Or the idea of having a nice cushion underneath our feet. (Plus, this loft hasn’t totally abandoned its wood floor roots… you’ll find some in the kitchen and the hallways.) The co-op apartment is now on the rental market for $7,250 a month. It comes fully furnished, so the renter is going to have to embrace that carpet living.
The duplex loft is large, with 1,200 square feet total. The lower level has its own gallery foyer, a daybed alcove, and a kitchen off the hallway that looks out onto the dining and living room. Because of the loft setup, ceilings reach an impressive 15 feet.
Here’s the kitchen, which has a window that looks directly out into the dining room. That seems like a pretty good setup for entertaining. The dark wood and black tiling in here give it a distinct look, different from the rest of the apartment.
Up on the top floor is the sleeping area and some more carpet, because why not? It’s a very spacious bedroom that looks down onto the sea of blue on display the living room.
Overall, it’s a unique space, set up like a loft but lacking many of those old details you tend to see in loft apartments. Still, you can’t beat the location (right off Union Square) and the large amount of room–not to mention furniture–it offers.
