This light-filled roost at 281 West 11th Street, available for 4-12 months, comes furnished “in a mid-century modern style.” The one-bedroom walk-up is on the fifth floor, so while you don’t have to worry about upstairs neighbors, you’ll certainly be able to stay in shape. For an equally-steep $6,500 a month, the pre-war co-op delivers those lovely 10-foot ceilings, exposed brick walls and a wood-burning fireplace to make the whole picture even more charming. On the modern creature comforts side there’s a washer dryer combo in the apartment, and a Bang & Olufsen sound system.

In addition, you get dibs on a quarter of the roof. And it’s in a lovely and convenient part of the West Village that looks good from any angle.

More top-floor perks include skylights in the living room and kitchen. Also in the kitchen you’ll find a Wolf range, SubZero refrigerator, Fisher Paykel dishwasher, garbage disposal and an impressive amount of cupboard space stocked with everything you need to whip up an epic dinner party or dinner for one (or two).

The cleverly-configured, elegantly-tiled bathroom offers a rain shower and plenty of storage.

A quiet corner bedroom offers a deep closet–and you won’t have to go far to do the laundry, because it’s where the washer/dryer unit is.

As we mentioned, you have exclusive rights to exactly one-quarter of this un-landscaped roof. Which, in true New York City style, is a perfectly fine spot to have a drink, watch a sunset and gaze out on the lovely Village streets below–and possibly the Hudson River.

But that monthly outlay–you’re paying for location here. This charming pre-war building–dating from 1910–is just the kind that the West Village is treasured for; on an equally classic tree-lined block, you’re steps from the Magnolia Bakery, the designer boutiques of Bleecker Street, restaurants, cafes, Hudson River Park and several subway lines. Bonus: Heat, hot water, electric, gas, and wifi are included in the rent.
