This unusual East Village one-bedroom duplex condo in the Village Mews at 407 East 12th Street checks all the boxes without shouting–that is, it lets a rare and fabulous garden paradise do the talking, which in this case means asking for $1.695 million. The 750-square-foot home was recently renovated from tip to toe, and the design is tasteful without being generically “luxe.” And while this not-huge condo wouldn’t work for a growing family or a communal crew, it looks heavenly for anyone seeking, an “oasis away from city living” while situated on a lovely street in the heart of what could be called an oasis of city living, with its 24-hour energy and unending list of destinations of every kind.
On the lower level, the apartment’s main space consists of a kitchen with a breakfast bar and a living area just past which an office nook is tucked into a small but fabulous glass-paneled sun room.
A well-equipped kitchen is sedate but missing nothing, not even a wine cooler–or storage.a wine cooler–or storage.
The solarium is a gateway to even better things: A beautifully landscaped multi-level bluestone-paved terrace has a fully integrated irrigation system and accent lighting to maintain and show off its lush plantings.

Upstairs, a large but cozy bedroom overlooks the terrace and a sleek and stylish bath looks as perfectly calibrated as the garden. There’s also a vented washer/dryer plenty of closet space. The boutique elevator condominium building offers a package room, bike room, on-site resident manager and landscaped common roof deck.
