3C is a one-bedroom home situated at the corner of Horatio and Greenwich Streets on a serene, residential tree-lined block. This offering, with exceptionally low maintenance, presents a rare opportunity to own a residence that marries the charm of the West Village with the luxury of space in a prewar elevator building.
The home opens to an oversized living room which features custom built-ins, multiple closets, adjustable recessed lights, and hardwood floors. Natural light bathes the interior through a western exposure which overlooks the lush bamboo garden of a neighboring townhouse. This expansive space, which offers multiple layouts, can be divided into separate living, dining and office areas,.
The adjacent master bedroom has a walk-in closet and an exposure facing northwest to the open sky with spectacular views of the new Whitney Museum of American Art designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Renzo Piano.
The living room flows seamlessly into the kitchen which boasts wood cabinetry, stainless steel appliances (including a grandfathered dishwasher), terracotta floors, a subway tile backsplash, large pantry, and breakfast bar which can be expanded to accommodate informal dining. The bathroom is clad in vibrant blue ceramic tile with a white mosaic hexagon tile floor.
61 Horatio, built circa 1925, is a boutique, 35-residence elevator cooperative located in the coveted Far West Village. Defining the facade is a unique parapet comprised of crown-like brick piers. Shareholders have access to a charming landscaped roof deck which boasts extraordinary views of the Hudson River, and is furnished for al fresco entertaining. Other highlights include a central laundry room, dedicated basement storage (for a small monthly fee; bicycles are free!), live-in Resident Manager, and an updated security system. The building has just completed a cosmetic interior renovation.
