$9,500/Month West Village Duplex Is a History Buff’s Dream

With its wide-plank wood floors, three fireplaces and stained glass skylight, this upper duplex in a 19th century brick townhouse on a gorgeous West Village street embodies the neighborhood’s historic charm. The three-bedroom rental home at 180 Waverly Place, asking $9,500 a month, doesn’t leave modern comfort behind; updates like zoned central A/C and a washer-dryer keep daily life charmed as well.

Occupying the top two floors of a well-maintained townhouse, this house-like apartment gets great light through mullioned windows. Wood accents add warmth, and every corner looks cozy. Without photos of kitchens or baths, it’s hard to tell how updated things are, though what is shown looks well-kept.

Downstairs and upstairs, wide plank floors keep things clean and pretty. This bedroom in the treetops would be lovely in any season, fireplace and all.

No floor plan either, but we’re guessing this is one of the home’s three bedrooms being used as an office/den. There’s another fireplace, and details like built-in bookshelves and custom radiator covers add just the right amount of sophistication.

The neighborhood, of course, may be the biggest draw; the iconic brownstone street is surrounded by restaurants, cafes, shops and other attractive distractions; public transportation is easy, though several other great downtown neighborhoods are a short walk away.
