If you’re a reader, prepare to fall in love. This West Village condo apartment at 302 West 12th Street is essentially one big book shelf, and beautifully designed at that. It’s also located in a pre-war apartment building right in the heart of the West Village and just a short walk away from the Hudson River Greenway, the Chelsea art galleries and the Meatpacking District. For bookshelves galore and such a charming location: $2.4 million.

The setup of this particular unit is a large foyer (with its own walk-in closet) leading into an open living and dining room, an enclosed kitchen and a single bedroom and bathroom. In the living room, essentially all of the wall space has been transformed into a bookshelf. That’s paired nicely with prewar details like a wood-burning fireplace, moldings, the original hardwood floors and ceiling beams. Although you’d expect the room to feel cluttered, all that shelving actually gives the space a seamless, organized feel.

On to the master bedroom…more bookshelves! In here, you’ve also got two closets, one of which is a large walk-in. The view from the big window is up 8th Avenue.

The kitchen has a unique layout and has been renovated like the rest of the apartment. Fixtures include custom cabinetry–the theme of the apartment is custom storage space–a dishwasher and Caesarstone countertops. There’s also a nice big window, which you don’t always see in galley kitchens like this.

This building shares a 3,000-square-foot roof deck that offers views of the city in all directions. With plenty of lounge chairs and seating, it also looks like an excellent place to enjoy a good book.
