The penthouse at 71 Washington Place may be petite, but it gives you the best of several enviable worlds, starting with Greenwich Village townhouse living. The co-op studio’s interiors are freshly-renovated with plenty of charm and good taste. Best of all, top-floor status gives you a nice, big private rooftop paradise from which to gaze out over the city below. It’s asking just about $1 million.
Tucked into the top floor of a townhouse next to Washington Square Park, this little aerie makes good use of a small space, and looks good doing it. Perfect as a pied-a-terre, the co-op has perks–like huge walk-in-closet and an amazing roof deck–that make up for its lack of square footage.
A sleek grey wool sofa opens to a full-sized Murphy bed and folds back up to its crisp seating self; it also features lighting, outlets and a coffee/tea nook. The apartment’s entryway provides enough space to use it as a dressing room, with closets and a washer/dryer keeping your wardrobe shipshape. A stylish and well-equipped kitchen has marble countertops, a subzero fridge and freezer, dishwasher, microwave, convection oven and cooktop and plenty of storage.
But the real beauty lies on an even higher plane: A custom stair leads to a large, lovely, landscaped private roof terrace with spectacular New York City views that stretch from Washington Square Park to the Empire State building and beyond.
