This one-bedroom at University Mews, a co-op building at 39 East 12th Street in Greenwich Village, is more than meets the eye. It’s not a huge apartment, but smart design has allowed for some surprising extra space. That’s no big shock, since the unit’s previous owners were architects. So how much for a one bedroom that’s located between the Village and Union Square, right in the heart of NYU? It has hit the market asking $1.595 million.
The spacious, lofty feel is on account of both the building design and some interior renovations. The building is an old printing house that was constructed in 1896. The unit has retained some of that warehouse vibe, with 12-foot, barrel-vaulted ceilings, hardwood floors and exposed cast iron columns. C’mon, who wouldn’t love to design a space with ceilings like that? Those older details have been coupled with a newer interior reno, which includes an open staircase and two extra sleeping lofts that could double as storage space. (The listing doesn’t show photos of the lofts, unfortunately.) According to the listing, there’s also “exceptional closet space designed by previous architect owners.”
The kitchen is located right off the foyer, which also leads to the open living and dining room. (According to the listing, that dining room could fit a 12-person dining table.) We like the slatted wood cabinets throughout the kitchen.
The bedroom is also accompanied by a cozy office space. But who needs sleep when you’re located in a neighborhood with so much to do? The University Mews building is within walking distance of some of the best destinations in New York City–Union Square, Washington Square Park and Gramercy.
