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.

Upon entering on the upper level, there’s a long gallery hallway perfect for displaying an art collection. It opens to an L-shaped kitchen that’s open to the living/dining space. The kitchen has a Viking gas range, Bosch dishwasher, refrigerator, microwave, and stainless-steel cabinets. Retro orange counters and a sleek white subway tile backsplash complete the look. As the listing notes, “there is additional space located overhead in the kitchen that may be used as a dramatic display for art or a guest sleeping loft.”

The living room has four large windows, an entire wall of floor-to-ceiling shelving, and exposed whitewashed brick walls. A full bathroom on the other side of the entrance completes this level.

Down the spiral staircase, the lower level holds two bedrooms and another full bathroom. The primary bedroom is large enough to hold a separate sitting area, which is accented by a contemporary wood-burning fireplace. There are two large closets, plus a walk-in closet that also holds a washer/dryer. Through sliding glass doors, this space opens to an outdoor garden that’s shared with two neighbors.

The other bedroom has lovely built-in shelving and generous closet space.
