Charm abounds at this two-bedroom West Village apartment, which spans a full floor of the 1875 brownstone building 69 Perry Street. The interior boasts some beautiful historic details like moldings, carved fireplace mantles and original shutters. The fully-furnished apartment also comes with the owner’s impressive collection of antique mantel pieces, 19 century paintings and antiques, and an Italian ceramic collection. Overall, not a bad spot to cozy up for a year.
The apartment occupies the entire second floor of the brownstone and takes up 1,225 square feet. A dedicated dining room sits off the open kitchen, lined with Portuguese floor tiles. The dining room is separated from the living room by customized French doors. (French doors also keep light streaming through, as this is a railroad-style apartment with windows in the front and back.) In the living room, we’re swooning over the wood detailing for the fireplace.
Both bedrooms are located in the back of the apartment–but it feels more like a “bedroom wing” given that it’s set apart from the living spaces by a sliding pocket door. In here, there are two bedrooms, a “dressing hall” lined with closets and a master bathroom with a two-person soaking tub. In the master, there’s a gorgeous wall of windows that looks out to a Juliet balcony.
Although the second bedroom is tiny, it boasts another fireplace. While it has to be one of the smallest fireplaces we’ve seen, it’s charming nonetheless. Really, there’s nothing to hate about this West Village pad.
