The cool thing about tiny living spaces is how it makes you so aware of all the wasted space you have in your own home. This micro apartment at 340A West 11th Street makes the most of every inch of its usable space, and if storage is key, then this pad has the combination. We think you’ll quickly see that inside this red brick “back house” less really is more.

Enter to find your adorable 13-by-13 living room, complete with old world touches like oak wood floors, built-in bookcases, and a wood-burning fireplace. The tiny kitchen has everything a New Yorker really needs (because who in NYC uses a kitchen anyway?). There’s an abundance of cupboards to store your winter sweaters—we mean dishes—and a four-burner stove, mini fridge, and a freezer for the ultimate culinary experience. The space also features a deep farmhouse sink and thick Carrera marble countertops and backsplash.

Believe it or not, the bedroom can actually accommodate a queen-sized bed. And the amount of storage in this space can put bedrooms three times its size to shame.

Now, if you’re looking to stretch your legs, this gorgeous co-op already has a solution. This $625,000 historic home, built around 1850, is surrounded by a private landscaped garden with flowers, a 50-foot elm tree, and multiple sitting areas.

340A West 11th Street is a pet-friendly co-op between Washington and Greenwich Streets, hidden behind a cast iron gate. The peaceful home is just a short walk from all the West Village action, including the Hudson River Park, the High Line, and famous restaurants.

  • This is gorgeous. It’d be perfect for me – 1 person. I adore all the little nooks and crannies and closets. Ahh, to have money.
