While it’s immediately evident that this quaint brick townhouse at 65 Bedford Street in the West Village couldn’t be in a more charmed location, a connected panel of windows on the home’s top floor is the only indication of more to come. The 4,000-square-foot, 20-foot-wide renovated townhouse has the necessary combination of modern and traditional, including an elevator, walls of windows and multiple terraces. The entire package–four bedrooms, four stories–is on the rental market for a one- year lease at $25,000 a month.
On the garden level, you’ll find a somewhat rare front kitchen with a big cozy living room and an office tucked away at the rear. The first of the home’s many fireplaces can be found here as well.
The back of the house is virtually all glass, so the entire floor is bathed in light, but the shape of the rooms affords more privacy. There’s also a terrace for indoor-outdoor living and a small but absolutely charming landscaped, brick-paved back yard.
On the second floor are two bedrooms and a full bath. There’s another terrace here and more windows galore. The third floor offers two more bedrooms and two full baths. Lots of windows and light, but, alas, no terraces up here; a quick trip in either direction can fix that. The home’s top floor offers a huge office/studio with a fireplace (the home boasts five in total, so winters here are just as nice), a spacious front terrace and–of course–lots of windows.
This sun-loving rental home is being offered furnished or unfurnished, so that grill is yours if you want it (for a year, that is).
