Built in 1896, the West Village’s 49 Downing Street was originally a horse stable. Nearly 100 years later, it was converted to 10 co-op apartments, and this 1,225-square-foot duplex unit is a fun mix of history and modern conversion. Asking $1,750,000, it has two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a shared patio, and a relaxed, whitewashed style.

49 Downing Street is a building of note in Greenwich Village for a number of reasons. The late 1800s horse stable is on the National Register of Historic Places. And as a 10-unit co-op, it has housed Yoko Ono, who bought an apartment in 1995 for her son Sean Lennon and sold in 2014 for $8.3 million. The latest apartment to hit the market here is this two-bedroom unit, asking $2.8 million, which boasts stunning windows that decorate the stable’s historic facade.

This flexible one-bedroom duplex at 49 Downing Street has two claims to fame: the Greenwich Village stable house in which it resides is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and Yoko Ono once called the penthouse home. This unit’s current owner has lived in the space since 2006, and now it’s on the market for $1.975 million.
