People always complain that when you travel for work you never really get to see the city. Well, that’s about to change, starting with this $7,500 a month fully furnished rental at 43 Perry Street. If it’s not enough to tell your friends you stayed in a West Village stunner, just try telling them your pad was once owned by The Rolling Stones… and then watch their jaws drop to the floor. Mission accomplished.
The home, which is touted by the broker as “***Better Than A Hotel***” is available for both short and long term (5-12 months). The private two-bedroom is actually part of a single-family townhouse that is shared with the current owner whose name is sadly not Mick Jagger. The apartment shares an elegant, gallery-style foyer with double-height ceilings, and a laundry room with the rest of the home. Secure sliding glass panels separate the pad from the main house, giving it complete privacy.
The unit has teak hardwoods throughout. Both bedrooms have access to the private backyard and feature sliding doors to the rest of the home. The limestone bathroom has a frameless spa shower and a Toto Neorest Washlet toilet, while the high-end kitchen features stainless steel appliances. Additional top-quality features include a 50-inch flat screen Panasonic plasma TV, automated shading systems, and central air with a humidifier.
43 Perry Street has an interesting history (in case the Rolling Stones detail wasn’t enough). The white marble building formerly housed immigrant families before the Civil War, and later became a carriage house when merchant class families began moving into the area. Owners of this home have used it for everything from running a coal and wood business to selling milk.
