Cool Listings, West Village 

281 West 11th Street, Cool listing, West Village, Manhattan Rentals,

This light-filled roost at 281 West 11th Street, available for 4-12 months, comes furnished “in a mid-century modern style.” The one-bedroom walk-up is on the fifth floor, so while you don’t have to worry about upstairs neighbors, you’ll certainly be able to stay in shape. For an equally-steep $6,500 a month, the pre-war co-op delivers those lovely 10-foot ceilings, exposed brick walls and a wood-burning fireplace to make the whole picture even more charming. On the modern creature comforts side there’s a washer dryer combo in the apartment, and a Bang & Olufsen sound system.

In addition, you get dibs on a quarter of the roof. And it’s in a lovely and convenient part of the West Village that looks good from any angle.

You would think creating an outdoor space right by the High Line would be counterproductive, but after you see this beautiful creation Blondie’s Treehouse built for clients in the Meatpacking District, you’ll think otherwise. Working with 3,000 square feet of contiguous exterior space, Blondie’s designers, Tina Dituri and Charles Casanova were tasked with combining the two distinct areas into one singular escape. See the amazing oasis that rose out of their design quandary over at Renovating NYC.
