This two-floor “penthouse” co-op at 53 West 11th Street on one of the most charming landmarked blocks in Greenwich Village is the result of a combination of two upper-floor townhouse units; as with many apartment combos, you get a bit more space than you’d normally have, though layouts can be odd. After a full gut renovation, this sweet one-bedroom, asking $2.295 million, is chic and well-designed enough to make up for narrow rooms and a few flights to climb. And those super-high, 18-foot ceilings and massive skylight don’t hurt, either.
Two floors are divided into living and entertaining areas, connected by a steel and wood staircase. A spacious master suite comprises the home’s entire lower level, accessed via a light-filled entry foyer. A south-facing bedroom boasts multiple exposures, a decorative fireplace and neighborhood townhouse views, and there’s plenty of room for an office nook or cozy reading corner.
A windowed custom-built dressing room includes laundry for the ultimate in convenience. The stylishly renovated master bath features botanical wallpaper and poured concrete floors.
Upstairs is a tranquil open-plan space with ceilings that soar to over 18 feet high. A massive skylight fills the sitting area beneath it with sunlight.
A bright, open kitchen features Viking, Sub Zero and Bosch appliances and plenty of storage. Like the home’s other spaces, the kitchen and adjacent dining area are filled with light from the floor-through’s 16 windows. Throughout are warm historic details like restored brick walls and wooden beams with modern indulgences like wide plank floors made of reclaimed fence posts and a steel-framed staircase. The co-op has a liberal sublet policy though the units are mostly owner-occupied.
