This Sweet $3M Village Co-op Is No Steal, but Its Location Is Stellar

Occupying the entire parlor floor of an elevator building on one of the loveliest blocks in Greenwich Village, this pre-war co-op at 38 West 9th Street may be sweet, but it’s far from little; the same could be said of its $2.995 million ask. For that price you’ll get two good-sized bedrooms, and, looking at the floor plan, there’s plenty of room for a third with a little reconfiguration. There are also loads of charming and well-preserved architectural details in every room.

High ceilings, tall windows, original parquet floors, pocket doors with brass hardware, and restored moldings frame the space; the living room is a mix of warmth and crisp mid-century elegance.

The kitchen is of the eat-in variety rarely seen in NYC apartments–and by that we mean there’s actually a big table and plenty of space to gather around it. Clean, white cabinetry offsets stainless steel appliances, and exposed brick adds more warmth to the already intimate space.

The floor-through configuration doesn’t mean you lose out on windows, they’re everywhere. Revisiting the floor plan shows a large office that could easily become another bedroom with the addition of a wall or two, though this looks like the perfect space for work or a creative endeavor (Eames Aluminum Group chair probably not included).

More high ceilings and parquet floors in the bedrooms, of course; better yet: one of the two fireplaces.

The Portsmouth is one of New York City’s earliest apartment houses. Built in 1882 and converted to a cooperative in 1973, this elegant six-story building has a recently-restored lobby and new elevator and offers a part-time doorman and basement storage. As far as the location, it’s hard to beat this prime spot among the tree-arched sidewalks and historic townhouses and apartment buildings on West 9th Street. Plus, it’s just a block from Washington Square Park, a treasure that today commands top dollar.
