This one-bedroom Chelsea rental at 229 West 16th Street—currently available for a 12-month lease at $3,795 a month—comes with a large private backyard that has almost as much square footage as the apartment itself. Inside, the newly renovated pad is petite but has a few clever space-saving ideas. Outside, you can really spread out and enjoy more than 360 square feet of furnished, landscaped outdoor space.

Access to the backyard is directly through a glass door in the living room—so you’ll get year-round views of the garden—which also features a sliver of exposed brick as an accent. There’s vinyl flooring throughout the apartment that “looks like wide-planked white oak hardwood,” according to the listing. Ceiling heights exceed nine feet and each room has recessed lights with dimmers.

The windowed kitchen also has some exposed brick accents, along with floor-to-ceiling custom cabinets, a blue glass-tile backsplash, and a coveted in-unit LG washer/dryer.

Just off the kitchen is the bedroom. While it’s pretty narrow, the listing claims it can accommodate a queen-sized bed and it comes outfitted with a wall of custom California closets. A sliding barn door, modernized with white and black paint, provides access to the bedroom. When you slide it shut, it reveals a hidden pantry closet in the kitchen.

The classic bathroom features subway tiles, a Carrara marble-topped vanity, and a soaking tub with a rain showerhead.

On a beautiful tree-lined block, 227 West 16th Street is a 51-unit coop with a live-in super, comprised of three, five-story located mid-block between 7th and 8th Avenues. The location offers great proximity to the High Line, Hudson River Park, Chelsea Piers, and more. There’s an A, C, E, L subway entrance just half a block away, while the 1, 2, 3, F, M, and PATH trains are also nearby. Unfortunately, no pets are allowed.
