This one-bedroom, 872-square-foot duplex condominium at 387 Bleecker Street couldn’t possibly be cuter, or in a better location. Tucked above trendy luxury handbag shop Mulberry in a 1817 townhouse, on a postcard-ready historic West Village street, it radiates designer charm everywhere from its sleek, white kitchen to its private roof terrace. So if this picture-perfect apartment is perfect enough for you, and you’re in possession of $3.15 million, this could be your new home.
The talented team at Matiz Architecture & Design (MAD) are responsible for the way this apartment feels much larger than it actually is. 6sqft covered the design previously, detailing how the home was able to show off its historic bones, yet make optimal use of the open, airy and functional bi-level space. The architects worked with the current owners–who purchased the apartment in 2013 for $2.5 million from the couple who bought it in 2010 for $1.58 million–to transform the apartment into a lofty and light-filled floor plan.
Enter the duplex via a private entrance on Bleecker Street into the kitchen and living area. Custom millwork and a cantilevered floating wood staircase are the focal points of the design. Original white-washed ceiling beams, exposed brick, and pale wide plank flooring anchor the kitchen’s sleek, modern finishes. The kitchen itself is functional and flexible (for cooking, entertaining or blending seamlessly with the architecture) with a new Miele dishwasher, four-burner cooktop, double ovens, washer/dryer and a Liebherr refrigerator.
The bright, open bedroom has custom-built woodwork closets; the bathroom boasts a large walk-in steam shower.
Up one more flight, few of us couldn’t imagine spending time on this the private rooftop garden with open West Village views.
The building just got a new façade, windows and plumbing as well as central A/C, a new roof and all new electrical. In a charming and protected historic district, this part of Bleecker Street is quiet and a bit timeless, yet bustling with restaurants, boutiques, landscaped squares and parks and convenient to public transportation. This is indeed, as the listing says, “…a special apartment in a special neighborhood.”
