The listing says “Blink and you’ll miss it!” and this diminutive duplex at 15 Jones Street in the West Village is definitely not one to miss. To be fair, the warning refers to charm-filled Jones Street, the city’s sixth-smallest street, not the fact that this chic retreat on the market for $900,000 is only a bit wider than the average queen-sized bed. The co-op’s two floors add a surprising amount of space, separating living and sleeping, with a bathroom on each floor making it great for couples, entertaining and guests.
Fully renovated in 2014, this residence begins on the first floor with an airy, sun-soaked living room across from a double-height window facing the tree-lined street. Custom details like floor-to-ceiling bookshelves, dark-stained hardwood floors, exposed brick, and a bookshelf/bannister make this stacked one-bedroom aerie feel like a home.
The custom kitchen features Quartzite countertops, a SubZero under-counter refrigerator and freezer, a deep under-mount sink, white lacquered cabinetry, and granite windowsills.
Between the first and second floors, a landing creates a nook for storage, seating or display. Downstairs, the charm doesn’t stop with the tranquil bedroom with storage and clean whitewashed brick accents. The renovated downstairs bath positively sparkles. The elevator building offers a live-in super and basement laundry.
