This one-bedroom co-op at 352 West 12th Street has exactly the kind of West Village charm–inside and out–that makes the neighborhood one of the city’s most sought-after–and makes even its tiniest spaces among the most fought-over. Asking $825,000–in keeping with the neighborhood’s complete lack of perspective in the area of real estate value–what’s essentially an alcove studio with a privacy-enhancing wall has been blessed with interior design and finishes that make every square foot a joy to behold. It may not “astound with surprises,” as the listing offers, but it’s a surprisingly chic little flat, two flights up, with a lovely common garden shared the trio of 19th-century townhouses that comprise the co-op.
A talented design effort has allowed the space to retain its old-world charm while gaining cutting edge decor. Four big old-fashioned windows offer views of the back garden and invite in plenty of sunlight. And the apartment is definitely more spacious than its 242-square-foot neighbor that 6sqft featured as a rental offering adorably outfitted by a pair of newlyweds.
The stainless steel pullman (a.k.a. “open”) kitchen is a beautifully on-trend creation of cool stainless steel, luxurious granite and rustic wood shelving. Appliances are new and shiny as well as compact and smart, with enough room for at least the necessities.
The bedroom’s cozy and minimalist, and a sleek, modern bath offers a glass-wrapped walk-in shower and artfully plastered walls.
Storage presents itself in the form of floor-to-ceiling built-in bookshelves and an architect-designed steel and glass closet. Thre are two small closets in addition, and the building offers additional storage space. There’s no mention of laundry facilities either in the unit or the building; we’re assuming the co-op allows installation of those key appliances, otherwise those two flights are going to seem like a lot more.
The intimate co-op made up of 350, 352 and 354 West 12th Street, a trio of 19th-century townhouses, employs a full-time super, and boasts a charming back garden. Cats, pieds-a-terre, co-purchasing and subletting are a-ok.
