Back on the market!
Hidden behind a cast iron gate and down a 19th Century horse walk on West 11th Street (between Washington and Greenwich Streets) is a historic circa 1850 "back house," surrounded by a serene private landscaped courtyard. Shading this "secret garden" and its multiple sitting areas, planters, and statues is a magnificent 50-foot elm tree.
Situated two flights up at the top of this red brick back house and through a common area adorned with vintage portraits, is a charming floor-through alcove studio home with private vestibule (not deeded). This residence which overlooks the bucolic courtyard, boasts many old world details such as a wood-burning fireplace, a medallion-wrapped chandelier, baseboard molding, soaring ceilings and hardwood floors.
Exposures to the north and south bathe this sanctuary in natural light. The open kitchen features stainless steel GE appliances and abundant cabinetry with internal lighting. The adjacent eating area faces south through a window framed with verdant ivy. A separate sleeping area has space for a queen or king sized bed.
The pin-drop quiet home also comes with dedicated cellar storage. Conveniently located in the coveted Far West Village, this pet friendly cooperative building is part of a charming five-building cooperative that is near Hudson River Park, the High Line, and some of the West Village's most famous restaurants.
