No, we didn’t get these pictures from the pages of Country Living magazine, but this stylish home most certainly could grace its cover. The 3BR/2BA apartment in a Greenwich Village Greek Revival townhouse recently sold for $1.795 million through a listing held by Corcoran.
Apartment 3FR at 288 West 12th Street is a 950-square-foot, floor-through unit that has been thoughtfully restored to emphasize the home’s pre-war character. Original details include three wood-burning fireplaces, wide-plank yellow pine floors, and leaded-glass windows.
In the spacious living room, custom shelving flanks the fireplace’s slate mantle and blends in seamlessly with the crown molding above. Delicate recessed lighting along with two large street-facing windows illuminate the neutral, calming room.
The apartment also has a Miele washer/dryer and a new climate-control system for heating and air-conditioning. It last sold in 2009 for $1.17 million, and the new owner is Ivan Dolin, a Hempstead-based interior designer. Do you think he’ll keep the country-chic style or go for a more modern look?
