This decidedly non-cookie-cutter co-op at 200 Mercer Street where Noho and the Village meet is a fine example of the surprises that await behind the doors of New York City’s apartments. The two-bedroom duplex, currently on the market for $3.75 million has had a complete modern renovation with a studied eye for design detail that transcends the merely trendy. Every comfort and convenience has been considered, from the wood-burning fireplace, central air-conditioning and laundry to integrated speakers and home automation, and a private roof deck is covetable in any home.
This sweet little one-bedroom co-op at 82 Horatio Street in just about the most perfect part of the historic West Village has plenty of pre-war charm, a wood-burning fireplace, and a sparkling new renovation. It doesn’t have lots of extra living space, and it’s asking $735,000, but there’s plenty of potential: subletting is allowed upon closing–rare for a co-op–and there are no issues with financing, pieds-a-terre, or any other creative ideas involving in-demand downtown Manhattan property.
Just last month, the New York Times interviewed novelist Jonathan Franzen on his move from the Upper East Side to a suburban street in Santa Cruz, California. After having a long-distance relationship with his “spouse equivalent,” writer Kathryn Chetkovich, he agreed to move to the west coast, saying he didn’t miss Yorkville, the “last middle-class neighborhood in Manhattan,” at all. And he’s now made that perfectly clear, unloading his three-bedroom co-op at 140 East 81st Street for $2 million, according to city records.
This one-bedroom co-op at 250 West 15th Street in Chelsea shows off its considered design and just enough of an of-the-moment look and laid-back 1970s feel for us to almost overlook its compact size and slightly odd layout. The turn-key apartment is priced to sell at less than a million–and a wood-burning fireplace with an exposed brick hearth and drawers galore can’t hurt its chances.
This full-floor, three-bedroom apartment at 118 Sullivan Street is on a classic stretch of Soho that combines commercial and nondescript with expensive and charming in a way few downtown Manhattan neighborhoods do. The co-op itself, asking $2 million, conveys the same un-fancy classic chic, with spacious rooms, three bedrooms, and an elegant patio.
This four-bedroom pre-war duplex would be unusual for its double-height living room alone, but the soaring internal space is graced with a stunning living wall feature that you definitely won’t find in the average Upper West Side living room. You can rent this cool space–originally an artists’ loft when the Atelier at 33 West 67th Street was constructed in 1903–for $16,450 a month.
Here’s a large studio apartment in the Upper West Side’s Verdi co-op building at 175 West 73rd Street, just two blocks from Central Park. The eighth-floor unit has a Murphy bed to free up space, some original details, and is decently priced for those who value the location.
This floor-through loft is indeed unique, as the listing claims. While the second-floor walk-up comes with over 1,000 square feet of interior space, it’s the wrap-around terrace and magical greenhouse that set this Flatiron co-op apart from so many others. 6sqft brought news of the 41 East 19th Street loft’s $5,000/month rental price back in February; now it’s for sale, asking $1.8 million. In addition to all of the interesting architectural details and loads of sunshine, the apartment comes with an alternate floor plan that shows you how to carve out a three-bedroom home and still have room to spare.
In a fortunate spot where the Flatiron district and Chelsea meet, this architect-designed two-bedroom duplex at 31 West 16th Street feels like a private house. A private entrance in the pre-war townhouse building leads to an interior where timeless details were created with an eye for design and for providing all the comforts of 21st-century city living. But what really makes this $3.65 million listing exceptional is the large, gorgeous garden in the rear.
While it measures just over 1,050 square feet, the design of this Chelsea co-op packs a punch. The beautiful two-bedroom apartment boasts unique touches which fuse an industrial and country aesthetic, from its ten-foot restored pressed ceilings to its original cast-iron columns. The loft, located on the fifth floor of the pre-war building at 107 West 25th Street, has hit the market for $1.79 million.
