About the Property

2 Bedroom + Library/Den, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)

Historic West Village Carriage House. Originally built in 1845 as a carriage house for horses, it was most recently updated in 2005 as a 1,300 sq ft triplex with 2 bedrooms (one is used as an office), 1.5 baths with separate tub and shower, a library with a baby grand piano, a large kitchen (by New York standards), and a large living room with an 18 ft ceiling and a giant, 16ft window. It is nearly impossible to find a quiet apartment in NYC, but this is one: because it is down an alley and off the street, you won't hear much traffic or street noise.

Upon entering into the first floor, you will find a living room with 2 couches, a dining table that seats six, 18 foot ceilings, and a 16 foot window overlooking a semi-private courtyard. The whole house has 11-inch wide walnut plank floors, even in the bathrooms. There is half bath behind a walnut door. The kitchen has all high-end appliances: sub-zero fridge, wolf range and oven, wolf microwave, miele dishwasher, and a large porcelain farmhouse sink with a faucet from Waterworks. The kitchen is fully stocked with Le Creuset pots and pans, dry goods and spices, and anything else you could ever need.

Climb the set of stairs to the second floor, and you will find a well-stocked library, a pull-out couch, and a baby grand piano. A flat screen television with cable and a DVD player is tastefully hidden behind a built in cabinet. The second floor is open to the first floor.

Climb another flight of stairs to the third floor, where you will find the bedroom. It has a skylight, a queen bed, a walnut 6-drawer dresser, and a bose clock-radio. There is a walk-in closet for your clothes and belongings. Another bedroom is used an an office, and has an all-in-one printer and a desk. The whole house has high-speed wifi access. The main bathroom is also on the third floor. A rain shower has green glass tiles from Waterworks and a clear glass panel. Under a skylight, there is a free standing bath from waterworks. All faucets are also from Waterworks. Sink from Duravit.

Hidden in a closet are a miele Washer (he) and Dryer, an ironing board and iron, and a drying rack for your delicates.

A fourth and final set of stairs leads to a private roof garden, with a table and four lounge chairs. A charcoal grill is also available for your use. (The stairs are steep, so please be careful).

Weekly maid service is included in the rates.

Only steps from the best amenities New York has to offer - famous restaurants, the meatpacking district, the high line, 3 subway lines, Washington square park, and much more - this apartment will feel like a private, quiet retreat from the busy streets.

PLEASE NOTE: There are 2 apartments in the carriage house, so you will have neighbors. The entrance courtyard is shared. However, you will have your own private entrance, and the feel is the same as a private townhouse.

Car: Not Necessary

As central a location as you can get in downtown Manhattan. Minutes from several parks: Washington Square, the new and amazing High Line, and the Hudson Waterfront (great for long walks, running, bike rides, playgrounds, snack bars, and water activities). Blocks from some of the best restaurants and bars in New York City. There are also six wonderful restaurants on our block. Near 3 movie theaters. Minutes from Meatpacking District (shopping, restaurants, cafes). 5 minutes walk to the famous Greenmarket at Union Square. Less than 5 minute walk to Magnolia Bakery and Bleecker Street. Amazing food trucks nearby. 10 minute walk to Soho, or a 2 stop subway ride. Trips to Times Square, Upper West Side or Upper East Side Museums, or lower Manhattan are easy subway rides - you are within a block or two of three subways.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: I bought this apartment in 2005 - I fell in love with its magical charm. As a writer who works at home, I also appreciated the quiet - so unusual in NYC! The location is also great - so many amazing restaurants nearby. I renovated it with the best materials and appliances I could find, and have lived here and loved it ever since. This is not a year-round vacation rental, it is my personal home, and I would like to share it with people who will appreciate it as much as I have.

Why the Owner Chose Lower Manhattan, New York, NY, USA:
I have always loved the West Village for its artistic and literary history, tree-lined small streets, and countless restaurants and cafes. Since I bought here, the high line has also been a wonderful addition.

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
This location is minutes from the best of everything New York City has to offer. When you arrive you will find a bottle of wine and a binder with lists of the best restaurants, bars, activities, as well as useful information like the nearest pharmacy, where to buy wine, etc. Some popular restaurants: Spotted Pig, The Little Owl, the famous Magnolia Bakery, Gottino, Pastis, Blue Hill, Morandi Great cafes: Cafe O, Grounded, S'Nice Fun activities: Washington Square Park, The West Side Highway (biking, running, walking, or just looking at the Hudson river), the High Line park, close to 4 major subway lines, walk to the Greenmarket at Union Square, walk to the Meatpacking District for shopping and dining. My favorite thing to do is walk around the neighborhood down the tree-lined, cobble-stoned streets with my dog, stop at a coffee shop or a bookstore, or walk down to the waterfront.
