There’s definitely something quaint about this apartment at 13 Downing Street, a 16-unit cooperative right in the middle of Greenwich Village. Its cottage-like vibe comes from exposed brick, a fireplace and lots of earth tones. It also feels cozy without being cramped, and spacious without being sprawling. The two-bedroom home is now on the market for $2.25 million after last selling in 2013 for $1.199 million.
From the apartment entrance, you’re greeted by a dining alcove, which feels pretty open due to the large doorway leading to the living room and the arched entryway from the hallway. Although the tiles on the floor may not be everyone’s style, it seems like a nice departure from the wood floors in the rest of the unit.
The dining room offers easy access into the living room, which is the coziest spot in the apartment. In here you’ve got a decorative, carved fireplace, high ceilings and three big windows. In case you’re wondering, there are a total of nine windows throughout the unit… not too shabby.
More tiling in the kitchen to compliment the dark wood cabinetry. It’s located right off the dining room.
Exposed brick dominates the entryway and the master bedroom. Nope, the bedroom isn’t huge, but it sure feels cozy. In fact, it’s hard to hate an apartment with such charm, especially given its location. This is just a five minute walk from the West 4th Street subway and basically surrounded by some of the most charming blocks in all of the Village — Minetta Lane, Bedford, Cornelia, Bleecker. Who couldn’t fall for all that?
