A corner one-bedroom co-op combining modern amenities with historic details was listed today for a cool $835,000. Located in the heart of the West Village at 242 West 4th Street, it more than makes up for its compact size with 10-foot ceilings and a central skylight, tons of original details, and quick access to everything the bustling neighborhood has to offer.
The big stunner is the living room, which features a large skylight that floods the cozy, top-floor space with light. An abundance of charming pre-war details — a full wall of exposed brick, wood trimmings, stained glass panels, and a decorative fireplace — give the space its singular character.
The freshly renovated open kitchen has stainless steel appliances including a dishwasher and plenty of spacious, mahogany cabinets to make entertaining easy. Plus, the island is on wheels! The brand-new bathroom features graphic tiles and the bedroom, while small, boasts a large closet for anything you need to store. A discrete closet in the entrance foyer houses your favorite amenity: a washer-dryer unit.
The building is steps away from the Christopher Street 1 station and all the best restaurants and boutiques the neighborhood has to offer. Plus, it would be like owning your own little slice of West Village history: the building was designed in 1884 by John B. Snook, architect of the first Grand Central. Other perks of the building include a pet-friendly policy, pied-e-terres and co-purchasing allowed, and unlimited subletting after two years of ownership.
