This flexible one-bedroom duplex at 49 Downing Street has two claims to fame: the Greenwich Village stable house in which it resides is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and Yoko Ono once called the penthouse home. This unit’s current owner has lived in the space since 2006, and now it’s on the market for $1.975 million.

The main level has a large living room with an exposed brick wall and plenty of light. There’s also a built-in bookcase made from metal and glass, and an exposed beam. An updated kitchen opens to the space, and features stainless steel cabinets, open shelving and subway tile backsplash. This level also has a lofted space for sleeping or added storage.

A spiral staircase takes you downstairs to the lower level. There’s a slight discrepancy between the floorplan’s labeling and the way the current owner is using the space, and frankly we think the current owner has it right if privacy is a priority to you. The “master bedroom” is actually being used as an office/den and has sliding glass doors that open to the shared patio. It also has built-in shelving and a fireplace. The far more private sunken interior “den/home office” is being used as the master, and features built-ins and a wall of closets. Both levels benefit from completely renovated full baths.
