Located in everybody’s favorite part of the West Village–among the neighborhood’s lovely and leafy historic streets but within blocks of the Whitney, the High Line and the Hudson River–this bright, funky, artist-designed studio at 92 Horatio Street is certainly not without its charms, including white-painted brick, a well-designed and stylish kitchen and bath, 12-foot ceilings and a custom-built lofted sleeping area that gets the bed and storage up and out of the way.
This ground-floor apartment (there’s no floor plan in the listing) on a quiet residential block gets its own private street entrance, maisonette-style, in addition to an interior building entrance.
The kitchen is a study in modern loft-chic and small-space-friendly design, with granite and corian countertops and brand new stainless steel appliances.
Depending on how you feel about lofted beds, this one, accessible only by a ladder, could be a blessing or a curse. The bed area includes a big open closet and built-ins, giving the home a lot more floor space and a cozy aerie for sleeping. On the other hand, if scaling a ladder every time you hit the hay doesn’t sound like fun, or you’d rather your bedroom have the same high ceilings as the rest of the space, you might be looking at some sleepless nights. There is, it’s worth noting, a privacy curtain that makes the loft feel more like a room.
A colorful and chic bathroom rocks a big two-person tub, and the room’s layout clearly makes the best of the small and oddly-shaped space.
The co-op building recently got an upgrade including a revamped lobby and a new roof and windows. The super lives just down the hall, and there’s a storage space available in the basement for an additional $45 a month.
