A charming West Village studio in a landmark building. Enjoy tons of sunlight, partial river views and the nearby Hudson River Park. The building is close to restaurants, cafes and shopping. Features include high ceilings, hardwood floors, a Murphy bed, a renovated kitchen and bath.

This apartment is adorbale, though small in size. By maximizing the use of the space, it feels like a much larger space. For example, with the Murphy bed folded away there is a generous living area. The coffee table is on castors so it can move out of the way when the bed is folded down.

View of couch and bookshelves from hallway.

View from living area into hallway (you can see the couch and bookshelves refelcted in the mirror). Bathroom is to the left of the mirrors at the end of the hall. There are closets on both the left and right sides of the hallway.

Kitchen view. You can see that light streams in through the windows. The northern exposure means the aparment has even light all day. Kitchen was recently renovated and features a deep white sink, butcher block countertop, a four-burner gas stove, an under-the-counter refridgerator and a breakfast island. A vintage wood and glass cabinet holds china and glassware, while pots and pans are stashed in the white cabinet to the right.

View of work area opposite couch and coffee table. Bookcases here mirror those next to the sofa and the two bookcases flank the Murphy bed cabinet.

The bathroom is a well proportioned with a full-sized bathtub. Wall tiles are off white and the floor tiles, pedestal sink, bathtub and toilet are white. Sink has a chrome and white vintage-inspired faucet. All other fixtures are glass and metal.
