This gracious Gold Coast one-bedroom home is on the market for the first time in over forty years. Located in The Hampshire, a Greenwich Village landmark and luxury apartment house built in 1883 by noted architect Ralph Samuel Townsend, this special home is rich in original pre-war detail and features two working fireplaces.
Sun-filled with gorgeous tree-line views from the living room, kitchen, and bedroom, you have north facing windows that are almost seven feet high and ten-foot ceilings. The kitchen has exposed brick, vintage wood cabinets and marble countertops, a gas stove and a windowed seating area. Your living room has a relaxed Old World charm with a wood-burning fireplace and plenty of room for a dining area.
The large bedroom easily fits a king size bed, and features a second fireplace, a huge dressing area with a walk-in closet and additional built-in storage. The windowed, white tiled bathroom has a unique layout with room for a washer/dryer. There's also a deep coat closet in the foyer.
Additional apartment features include original folding wooden window shutters, restored carved wood fireplace mantles, original oak wood parquet floors and oversized moldings.
Nestled on lovely West 9th street in the heart of historic Greenwich Village, The Hampshire is a full-service co-op with a renovated lobby and a stunning glass and wrought iron elevator. The building also has a laundry room, is pet friendly and allows pieds-a-terre and co-purchasing.
