If entertaining is what you like to do, then this jaw-dropping 450 square foot great room, the centerpiece of apartment 4FG, will inspire you to entertain even more. A combination of two one-bedroom units, this corner apartment with three exposures is currently configured as a two bed/two bath (plus a large home-office) but it could easily be configured into a legal 3 bed/2 bath unit (with laundry room) without affecting the integrity of aforementioned great room. Occupied by a local artist since 1965, the apartment was used as an art studio, literary and art salon, and gathering place for friends and family for over 50 years with many of its quirky nooks and crannies filled with eclectic and interesting art from all over the world. In need of a creative, interior-design minded new owner or with the assistance of an innovative architectural firm, this apartment, by far the largest unit at 25 Minetta Lane, is ready for its new incarnation which will easily satisfy the needs of a modern family (with children) as well as the needs of anyone who likes to collect and display art and, let us not forget, who likes to entertain. Landmarked 25 Minetta Lane overlooks tree-lined Minetta Green and is part of a charming, somewhat secluded enclave known as The Minettas (Minetta Lane and Minetta Street) located at the crossroads of some of NYC's most coveted neighborhoods: Greenwich Village, the West Village, and SoHo. This elevator building offers numerous amenities such as access to a fully-furnished roof deck with direct views of the Empire State building to the north and the WTC to the south, storage lockers for rent, a bike room, a laundry room with recently updated machines, and a resident Super. Nearby transportation options include the A, B, C, D, E, F, M, 1 and 2 subway lines. The co-op has a generous sublet policy and pets are welcome. There is no Board interview.
