You know that row of Federal-style brick rowhouses on King Street, now surrounded on each side by the pervasive traffic snarls of Varick Street and Sixth Avenue? Well, this is one of those. The landmarked 1830s home at 47-49 has been remade into twelve co-op units; #13 is on the third floor and overlooks the building's lush central garden. OMG, cute. The apartment is pretty tiny, though its original wide plank floors, 10-foot beamed ceilings, wood-burning fireplace and exposed brick walls make up for it in the looks department. The kitchen, for its part, is rather roomy and has a skylight. There isn't a ton of storage in the unit, though the building offers communal space in the basement.
