Let’s start by saying we just might live in a paper grocery bag if it were on this street. Now that we’ve got that out of the way–this barely-big-enough one-bedroom co-op on a dreamy West Village block at 68 Barrow Street has more than location going for it. The double-exposure floor-through got a snappy makeover in 2013 by NYC designer/developers ASH–its owner is company founder Ari Heckman–and has been featured in New York Magazine among others. Bold design choices and a modern aesthetic set this co-op apart from the average Village aerie.
The floor-through (fourth floor walk-up, did we mention that?) flat, besides being on a disturbingly lovely block, sits within a beautiful landmarked brick townhouse. The aforementioned recent renovation resulted in all-new electric, plumbing, and framing.

The apartment features chevron-patterned oak floors throughout; its northern and southern exposures overlook iconic historic architecture including Grove Court and the Two Sisters townhouses.
The custom-designed kitchen features a rakish contrast of white matte and Milas Lilac marble counters and backsplash–”the same as is used in [David Adjaye-designed] Proenza Schouler” boutique in Soho, according to the listing. Integrated appliances by Miele and SubZero disappear into the sleek kitchen’s design.
Floor-to-ceiling closets give the bedroom’s diminutive proportions a boost. The bath boasts a tank-less Toto toilet, “curated concrete vanity with touch faucet,” and a shower lined with dramatic book-matched mercury black marble.

Additional listing perks include energy-efficient recessed lighting, a slate fireplace, a private four-by-six storage space, bike storage and a live-in super, and all common areas are apparently being renovated–with no assessment–in the coming months. It’s worth noting that the apartment has barely been on the market for a month and has already gotten a $25K price cut, so we might assume the seller is serious about parting with his stylish home/design showcase.
