This two-bedroom, two-bath co-op at 67 Perry Street is tucked into a landmarked 19th-century row house on one of the loveliest blocks in the coveted West Village. The familiar collection of sweet details–exposed brick, a working fireplace, bay windows, and high ceilings–is enhanced by a considered custom renovation that adds colorful design and modern comfort. The compact floor-through walk-up has been cleverly carved out of a railroad layout, and though it’s the embodiment of a romantic Village flat, the $2,995,000 asking price may seem more alarming than charming.
Classic pre-war details abound in the co-op’s sunny living room, where a wood-burning hearth is framed by a brick wall, hardwood floors, and high ceilings. Tall bay windows frame third-floor treetop views.
The home also has a connection to an A-lister. Actor William Dafoe formerly owned this unit, selling it for about $2.9 million in 2014, as 6sqft previously reported.
The colorful, design-minded eat-in kitchen doesn’t skimp on function. A few highlights are an antique tile backsplash, deep stone countertops, and cobalt blue custom cabinetry adorned with vintage hardware. High-end appliances include a SubZero refrigerator, Miele dishwasher, and Viking stove.
Down a hall lined with closets, the apartment’s primary bedroom boasts two exposures. An en-suite bathroom turns up the luxury factor with a custom vanity, a heated towel rail, a bidet, and a jetted tub wrapped by a teak surround.
Just off the kitchen, a smaller guest bedroom has a charmingly designed bath with an industrial trough sink, a heated towel rail, and a shower tucked cleverly into a spare corner. A tiny closet in this room means that row of hallway closets is really the home’s only sizable closet space, but there’s always an option to build more.
The bespoke co-op has the convenience of a washer-dryer and dimmer-controlled lighting throughout. The building’s postcard-perfect brownstone facade–along with that of its next-door twin–is just the reason this neighborhood is a favorite of so many New Yorkers and visitors.
