This co-op apartment at 7 Gay Street in Greenwich Village packs in a lot of rustic charm for a one-bedroom. Flanked with exposed brick, with four wood-burning fireplaces, you could pretend like you’re in a miniature mountain chateau rather than a NYC pad. Although there’s only one bedroom, this co-op has been renovated to include a second apartment so it spans a total of 1,000 square feet. It’s also a corner unit with both southern and western exposures. In case you’re rushing to buy it–hold tight. The owner has only put it up on the rental market for either short- or long-term tenants. It’s asking $6,250 a month unfurnished, or $7,000 a month for all the furniture to stay.
Upon entering the apartment you’re in the living room, which has enough space to hold a dining room table as well. The galley kitchen separates the living room from the master bedroom — you’ll have to pass through it to get to either side of the apartment. The kitchen has kept some of its rustic details, like the exposed brick and fireplace. New additions include granite countertops, a dishwasher, Thermador gas range and Sub-Zero refrigerator.
The bedroom has two–yes, two!–wood-burning fireplaces and two big windows facing south. There are also two closets, an ensuite bathroom, and a big beautiful built-in bookshelf. This looks like a really nice room to cozy up in this winter. Both bathrooms were renovated, one with lots of marble tiling.
Finally, a huge perk of this unit: exclusive access to this roof deck, which adds an extra 300 square feet to the apartment. Up here, you can’t deny you’re in the city. But inside the apartment, you can get away with pretending you’re on a mountain vacation.
