Perched high above lower Fifth Avenue in the heart of Greenwich Village, this marvelously bright and meticulously renovated one bedroom with central air, fireplace and 10ft ceilings is the quintessential prewar home. The high floor offers open expansive views west over the Village to the Hudson River and floods the apartment with gorgeous golden sunsets.
The classic layout includes a well-proportioned entry foyer with two coat closets which opens to a remarkably expansive living room crowned with a gas fireplace with handsome Chesney limestone mantle. The apartment has the good fortune of 10ft ceilings which expands the space considerably. The adjacent bedroom with open western views and walk-in closet has been partially opened to the living space along the window wall which further increases the expansiveness and light. The separate windowed kitchen includes custom cabinetry, Subzero, Viking and Miele appliances and a service entrance. A new beautiful bath with stall shower off the bedroom hall completes the layout. This remarkable apartment is complete with new central air-conditioning, beautiful hardwood floors throughout and voluminous ceilings.
