“Old-fashioned” can have any number of meanings: a euphemism for stodgy, or a signifier of cutesy and intentionally low-fi, for example. But the landmarked pair of 1883 Greenwich Village luxury co-op buildings named Portsmouth and Hampshire at 38-50 West 9th Street are exactly that–old fashioned–with no hidden subtext and plenty of charm. Rich in pre-war detail with two working fireplaces (summer will be over before you know it!), this one-bedroom apartment is up for sale for the first time in over forty years–and with the exception of important upgrades like a washer-dryer, and a $1.395 million asking price, it probably hasn’t changed much over that time.

Sun-filled with treetop views from north-facing windows nearly seven feet high beneath ten-foot ceilings, the living room has a cozy old-world charm. There’s plenty of room near the kitchen for a dining area, and a wood-burning fireplace keeps thing toasty in winter.

In the kitchen an exposed brick wall and vintage wood cabinets add warmth, marble countertops add a touch of luxury, and a gas stove and a windowed seating area are practical perks.

The spacious bedroom with an also-spacious walk-in closet and dressing area (that could double as an office nook) features a second fireplace. The windowed, white-tiled bathroom adds the convenience of a washer/dryer. This charming Village home gets bonus points for a large coat closet in the foyer, original wood shutters, restored carved wood fireplace mantles, original oak parquet floors, and large, lovely moldings.

The pretty pair of full-service co-op buildings also offers a renovated lobby and a very cool glass and wrought iron elevator, plus a laundry room.
