On the kind of West Village street that makes you curse Google for taking the photos on such a sunny day, this quintessential historic brick townhouse is surrounded by others like it on a block we can’t see ever wanting to leave. The one-bedroom rental apartment on the second floor of 191 West 10th Street has the usual charms of a Village aerie: exposed brick, high ceilings, big windows–but the unexpected win is that rare and coveted city haven, private outdoor space in the form of a large and lovely terrace (which likely helps to sell the prospect of $5,050 a month rent.)
Unfortunately there’s no floor plan, but rooms appear spacious; they’re definitely light-filled and charming. The living room is a study in clean white and brick, from the decorative fireplace to the crisp white moulding that frames the windows. Not only is there a terrace, but floor-to-ceiling, wall-to-wall glass panels light up the room and allow you to enjoy the terrace even when you’re indoors (or if you’re an adorable husky, to stare forlornly at your owners in an appeal to be let in).
Surrounded by other amazing West Village yards and gardens, the terrace awaits for outdoor dining and entertaining,
The kitchen is indeed shiny and renovated albeit with some of the narrowest little appliances we’ve ever seen. The bath looks downright luxurious if a bit cramped. But the bedroom gets all the points back for another glass wall and terrace views beyond.
