West Village house description

Pure happiness: espresso and the paper in the sunny back patio even in winter. This is an 1852 townhouse, full of history (landmark district) but with all modern conveniences. In the heart of the fashionable West Village, full of unique touches and artisan-al craftsmanship. It is just minutes from two different subway lines and from one of the new Citibike stations (like Paris velibs).

Inside, an eclectic mix of late 18th-early 19th century antiques, mid-century modern furniture, contemporary art and Persian rugs. Not an apartment - a separate five story townhouse. This house offers two lovely bedrooms separated by two floors. Rates are for two bedrooms (suits one couple plus one single). Another room can be used as a cute third small bedroom, suitable for a short stay for an adult or for a child or teen but small for an adult for an extended stay.

Rent in calender is for entire house, which also includes 2 baths, living room with working fireplace, double height greenhouse dining room, kitchen, double height mahogany library with 2000 books, planted rear patio with vintage wrought iron furniture, very sunny roof deck with herbs and flowers. Master bath has 1790 French copper bath tub a la Marat. Rent also includes basic cable, cable wireless internet, satellite TV, local phone service. Appliances include 4-oven, 6-burner Aga stove, Bosch dishwasher (2009), washer, dryer, powerful, quiet and energy efficient in-wall air conditioners (2009), 42 inch Sharp Aquos TV in red bedroom. There are 3 sound systems; the main one has 500 watt per channel speakers.Large selection of vintage European linen sheets,custom made pillowcases,down comforters,thick fluffy white bath towels and wash cloths, and artisanal Tuscan and vintage hand towels.
Beautiful dishes and serving pieces and 19th century silver plate knives, forks and spoons.

House has also been published in Marie Claire Maison’s Turkish edition and twice on Apartment Therapy and on an Italian decor site.

This block on Leroy Street between Bleecker and Bedford has almost no traffic. Near Bleecker's wonderful food shops and boutiques with more than twenty restaurants just a few minutes' walk away. Five minutes to West Fourth Street or Houston St. subways, or bike on West Side Highway bike path and free public tennis courts three blocks away.

Use of owner's bike may be arranged.

Please note that house comes with owner's two cats, brothers Lulu and Mashia (born in 2009 and 2008). They are adorable and friendly and do their business outside (thru a cat door to the back patio which leads to a network of gardens and vacant lots that cats can access but people can't). They do need to be fed!

Please note, this is a 5 1/2 story house. The flights of stairs are short and easy, but most of the stairs are 'Dutch stairs' (enclosed circular stairs as in an ancient castle) and there are no hand rails. It is perfectly safe for normal people (owner is 55, prior owner was late 60s) but not suitable for infirm or disabled people or kids under 5. There is NO wheelchair or stroller access besides the street level floor which contains the living room only.
