Washington Mews might be one of the best blocks not just in Greenwich Village, but in all of New York City. It’s a gated, cobblestone street that’s lined with quaint carriage houses and one of them has just hit the market, asking $30,000 a month. Located at 64 Washington Mews, it’s been totally renovated into a lofty and modern two-bedroom home with three levels connected by an open staircase and lit by skylights.

The carriage house was constructed in 1840 and is now used as a single-family home. One big perk: the rental comes with a parking spot on the private street.

A formal foyer, which is flanked by closet space, leads to the open kitchen, dining and living room. This main room gets all its light from three big south-facing windows in the living room, as well as light streaming down from the open staircase. The dining room is distinguished by a French marble gas fireplace, while the kitchen has charming casement windows that look out onto a courtyard.

The stairwell leads up to the third-floor living quarters, which is lit by four skylights. The large master bedroom has two full walls of closets and storage. Three windows, framed with shutters and wooden planters (which have their own automatic irrigation system) overlook the cobblestone street of the mews. The second bedroom is equally as charming, with French doors opening to a balcony perched above a courtyard. The bathroom is decorated with marble and boasts a soaking tub and separate, large steam shower.

Now it’s down to the downstairs level, which is currently used as a den/media room. (It could also be transformed into a third bedroom.) This floor has another marble fireplace, as well as an office, bathroom and laundry room.

Yes, the monthly rent is expensive, but it’s hard not to pine over a space, and street, so charming.
