On its own, the fact that the landmarked five-story tenement building at 244 West 4th Street was designed in 1884 by John B. Snook, the architect responsible for the original Grand Central Station, wouldn’t likely be enough to entice a buyer. Fortunately, the covetable West Village neighborhood and the thoroughly livable two-floor, one-bedroom layout of this pretty co-op asking $948,000 would be sufficiently convincing even without its historic bragging rights.
The apartment’s first floor offers a spacious living room with a decorative fireplace, a kitchen, and a powder room. Classically detailed millwork including lots of built-in shelving makes storage a pleasure.
The clean and efficient subway-tiled galley kitchen looks freshly-renovated and well-equipped.
Upstairs you’ll find a large bedroom, a full bath and more ways to keep clutter at bay. High ceilings and recessed lighting provide an overall modern feel, and natural light from the building’s courtyard keep both floors bright.
Though it’s a co-op, the building allows pets, pieds-a-terre, parents buying for children and subletting.
