A Classic Six Co-op Overlooking Washington Square Park Asks $2.75 Million

August 3, 2015

Central Park is usually hailed as the best New York park to live right off of. It definitely is one of the best, but that shouldn’t override another great NYC park–Washington Square Park. Downtown in Greenwich Village, you’ll get a whole different atmosphere consisting of performers, musicians, students, chess players and everyone else coming to hang around the park’s iconic fountain. Yes, it’s livelier and louder than Central Park, but if you’re looking for a co-op with a little more excitement and fun right outside, this apartment at 39 Washington Square South might fit the bill. It’s an impressive classic six unit that’s just hit the market for $2.75 million.

A classic six apartment is one with a formal dining room, formal living room, kitchen, two bedrooms and a third room that was historically used as servant quarters, and is now typically used as a third bedroom or office space. In short, it’s an in-demand co-op layout that doesn’t pop up on the market all that often. That probably explains why this one costs just as much as a Brooklyn townhouse. Although it’s still cheaper than a classic six on Central Park!

This unit is in a pre-war building and therefore comes with plenty of pre-war details. Those include high ceilings, parquet floors, tall windows, architectural moldings, decorative mantels, bookcases and French doors. The glassy doors pictured above look like they were likely added later as a way to to open up the dining and living room spaces. Overall, the historic details–especially the tiled fireplaces–look very well-kept.

There have been some updates to the apartment, like new lighting fixtures. The master bedroom has a decidedly more modern touch than the living and dining rooms. The listing doesn’t offer photos of the bathroom or kitchen so there’s no word on if they’ve been updated or not.

Out of the three massive living room windows you get this great view of Washington Square Park. Who could argue with that? You’re also within walking distance of all the subway lines, bars, restaurants and businesses of Greenwich Village, truly in the heart of downtown. Is Central Park looking any less appealing right now when it comes to your fantasy on-the-park apartment?
