Small Wonder

A West Village studio with a rare, old-school extra: a woodburning fireplace

Besides its status as one of the best city neighborhoods to be single, a large part of the West Village's charm lies in its cache of prewar buildings that evoke old New York.

This studio on Greenwich Street is a perfect example, with a wood-burning brick fireplace tucked in the corner of the living room, which also has well-maintained hardwood floors and crown moldings that add to apartment's classic appeal. There appears to be a good amount of closet space—as well as room for seating—in the foyer, and the kitchen has been updated to include a dishwasher and honed marble countertops.

The bathroom has been updated with attractive marble tiling as well, though you'll likely want to add some shelving to increase the storage:

The building itself is a 30-unit co-op with on-site storage and a laundry room, and the listing notes that pets are allowed.

With an asking price of $585,000 and relatively reasonable monthlies at $594/month, this strikes us as a cozy spot to call home for a buyer who wants easy access to everything the West Village has to offer.
