This Greenwich Village apartment, at the cooperative 175 Bleecker Street, is within cozy quarters. But the ground-floor, one-bedroom unit is more than meets the eye post-renovation. It’s packed with some ingenious storage, a lofted second bedroom space, and a dreamy private patio. After last selling in 2015 for $849,000, it’s back on the market with a steeper ask of $980,000. Will someone be willing to spend close to $1 million on a well-designed but modest apartment, right in the heart of the Village?
A narrow hallway takes you through the apartment, which has tightly-packed–yet still distinct–areas for a loft/office, bedroom, kitchen and living room. The exposed brick has been painted white to offset the wood floors. 11-foot ceilings keep things from feeling too cramped.
The galley kitchen was upgraded with stainless steel appliances and white granite countertops. To increase storage space, the walls were lined rustic, barn wood shelving.
The bedroom is located right off the kitchen. The bed was raised to keep storage underneath. There is also a dedicated closet space for the bedroom.
Those 11-foot ceilings allowed for an extra lofted bed to accomidate visitors. In a smart design move, a desk with shelving was installed underneath the loft to create a cute, cozy office space.
But here’s the real perk of this apartment. The interior may be tight, but this private patio is surprisingly spacious. The cobblestone, wood fencing and lights also make this a romantic amenity that just might justify the high asking price. If you’re not quite convinced, there are a few more interior photos to peruse in the gallery below.
