This furnished co-op at 256 West 10th Street offers flexible lease terms, but the attractive, understated West Village apartment is flexible in other ways–and even manages to throw a few curves. On the rental market for $12,500 a month, the unusual home’s three bedrooms–one in an enclosed loft–are joined by a small office/study, and adventurous architectural details add more space for living between rooms.
The 1,600-square-foot Hudson Mews apartment’s steep rent is undoubtedly based on its location behind a gated courtyard on a block where the streets toss off their rigid grid and boast some of the city’s finest restaurants, shops and historic buildings. The enviable landscaped private courtyard and lushly planted roof deck won’t send anyone running, either.
The listing claims that this west-side pad “perfectly captures the essence of this one of a kind neighborhood,” as indeed it does. The timeless pre-war co-op has Freedom Tower and sunset views through two exposure and oversized windows, a wood-burning fireplace and 12-foot ceilings. On the 21st-century end of things, an integrated sound system and central HVAC help daily life run smoothly. Central to the apartment and its claims of uniqueness is a circular architectural configuration that provides more usable open space, a flow between rooms and a chic, modern appearance. Within this interior traffic-circle you’ll find an eat-in kitchen with black granite countertops and high-end appliances and finishes.
Through tall steel-framed glass door panels is a suitably charming private terrace. Plenty of sunlight gets in and a fence provides privacy.
The aforementioned round hallway allows room for a grand piano–or your own grand ideas.
Bedrooms offer remote solar and blackout shades.; a large master has an en-suite bath with double vanity and double shower, and the home’s many closets complement its multiple bedrooms. The apartment is only available furnished, but the furniture has a mid-20th century modern look with the timelessness of natural woods.
In addition to the private terrace, a beautiful common roof deck offers another opportunity for sunset views and outdoor living.
