The listing brags that this Greenwich Village co-op looks like something out of a movie, and we’d have to agree. A two-year restoration of this apartment, which occupies the third floor of the 1839 Greek Revival townhouse 158 Waverly Place, left the 2,000-square-foot space looking gorgeous. Historic details are paired with both intricate wallpaper patterns and modern amenities. The apartment, too, has hosted a notable crew of residents. The townhouse was built for Lambert Suydam, the former president of Manhattan Gas & Light Co., and then the third floor was later occupied by Oscar winning actress Judy Holliday between 1948 and 1952. The latest owner, Thomas Ruff, is a German photographer who purchased it in 2006 for $1.65 million, according to public records. And now the co-op can be rented for $12,495 a month.

The living room is lined with bookshelves and a wood-burning fireplace. Outside those windows, there are uninterrupted views over the historic Northern Dispensary Building. Adjacent to the living room is a formal, customized dining room that can fit 12. The furnished rental will come with the banquet table, which was designed to replicate the Waverly Inn restaurant on Bank Street. The dining room also boasts a bar with a temperature controlled beer refrigerator and a concealed television which appears at the touch of a button.

Then dining room then leads into the den, also decked out with bookshelves and a wood burning fireplace. If you’re not a book lover, there’s a custom TV mounting system set up, too.

The kitchen was designed with green patterned wallpaper to compliment the exposed brick. That’s coupled by a Viking range, large capacity refrigerator and ample shelving and closet space.

The master bedroom boasts the apartment’s third wood burning fireplace, as well as period-inspired William Morris wallpaper. Located along the southern end of the apartment, the windows overlook the gardens of the historic townhouses along Waverly Place.

Tons of space, beautifully decorated, and in a prime Village location? This apartment looks straight of a movie, indeed. Be sure to check the gallery for a few more interior pictures that are sure to make you swoon.
