Although the original architectural details in this floor-through townhouse pad postdate Shakespeare’s classic tome about star-crossed lovers by about 300 years, they offer the perfect setting for a different kind of romance, because this one-bedroom rental at 4 West 9th Street in the Village is easy to fall in love with.
From the two ornately carved decorative fireplaces to the stunning dentil moldings to the intricate ceiling medallions, you will be enchanted from the moment you step in. Beautifully preserved hardwood floors wind their way throughout the home, where glass-paneled double doors delineate the traditional-style floor plan from room to room.
The expansive dining room is flooded with light courtesy of extra tall glass doors leading to a private terrace, making it spectacular for hosting dinner parties of two or ten.
Although the modern kitchen seems to break the spell a bit, the exquisite bedroom draws you right back in. Gorgeous built-ins and a tri-cornered nook add to the room’s charm. And even if you won’t be calling “Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou Romeo?” from the Juliet-inspired balcony any time soon, we’re certain you’ll enjoy the fresh air afforded by opening up the bedroom’s lovely double doors overlooking a small backyard.
Conveniently located near Washington Square Park and Greenwich Village’s unique blend of shops and restaurants, the only heartbreak you’ll find here is when the $9,850-per-month lease is up.
