There’s definitely something dreamy about being perched on the top floor of a West Village townhouse, looking at the neighborhood’s charming residential streets from above. At 226 West 11th Street, a 19th century townhouse, the top-floor co-op apartment is now for sale, priced just under $1 million. The one-bedroom pad is just as romantic as the neighborhood below it–the listing even goes so far as to call West 11th Street “the most romantic enclave in the West Village.”
Because it’s the top floor you get angled walls and the bonus of nice high ceilings. The living room, which includes a dining area, only has one window, but it feels plenty bright. White shelving and a whimsical interior design–nothing too dark or heavy–helps keeps things light, too.
French doors separate the living room from the kitchen, letting light stream in. (The kitchen doesn’t have its own window.) Again, interior details are kept minimal, simple and clean.
The bedroom is located next to the living room, both of which line the front of the townhouse. From that cute window you get treetop views as well as the cobblestone streets below.
This is a straightforward, modestly-sized one-bedroom apartment. Overall, a romantic and cozy spot in one of New York’s best neighborhoods, located right around the corner from all the bars, shops and restaurants of 7th Avenue, and within close distance to subway hubs at 14th and 9th Streets.
