It’s often said that if you’re not sure which neighborhood you’d like, renting is the best way to get to know a few before you make the commitment of buying. And while Greenwich Village is often a top choice, it’s an expensive commitment. This $13,000 a month rental in a classic pre-war co-op at 61 West 10th Street is pricey, but you’re starting at the top, with a view, on downtown Manhattan’s “Gold Coast” in the aptly named Windsor Arms. And there’s plenty of room at the top in the form of two big bedrooms with room for more.
Among the best parts of living on the 10th floor is being surrounded by wide open southern views overlooking all of downtown Manhattan including the Freedom Tower. Pre-war details in the huge living/dining room include beamed ceilings and a wood burning fireplace.
Just outside the large and lovely rustic and intelligently outfitted chef’s kitchen is an equally large family room, which could easily serve as the home’s living and dining room, leaving the massive formal living room the freedom to become–you guessed it–another bedroom. In the kitchen you’ll be blessed with a SubZero fridge, Bosch dishwasher and Viking range, plus a vented washer/dryer.
A corner master bedroom offers a huge walk-in closet and a windowed en-suite bath with those killer views. A second bedroom also gets a big walk-in closet, built-ins galore and window seat for gazing at those views, plus some snappy dark grey walls.
The building offers an elegant marble lobby with a 24/7 doorman; if you’re in love after a year, you can renew the lease for a second year.
