In New York we don’t just fall madly in love with people–we fall just as hard for real estate. So here’s a charming two-bedroom apartment to love from the Greenwich Village cooperative 171 West 12th Street. The listing boasts plenty of pre-war elegance in the form of original casement windows with double-paned glass, a wood-burning fireplace surrounded by exposed brick, and built-in bookshelves. And exposures to the south, west, and north–plus access to a balcony–bring in plenty of light. It’s just been listed for $1.85 million.
The oversized living room features a raised dining area, which provides some distinction between the two areas. Nine-foot, six-inch wood-beamed ceilings make this living area feel spacious, not to mention the floor-to-ceiling french door and casement windows that front the patio.
Inside the windowed kitchen, the owners got creative with storage space. An exposed brick wall adds a touch of personality, while a separate pantry adds even more room for cooking supplies.
The master bedroom has enough space to add built-in, floor-to-ceiling closets. (Currently, it just has one regular closet.) The second bedroom, adjacent to this one, is currently being used as an office/den.
This 25-unit brick co-op may be charming, but it doesn’t boast any fancy amenities. One big appeal is its central Greenwich Village location, nears tons of restaurants, shopping, nightlife and the 1, 2, 3, A, C, E, F, M and L trains.
