THE ESSENCE OF THE WEST VILLAGE. Character and charm abound in this unique two-bedroom, one-and-a-half-bath duplex with private roof deck and amazing views. Featuring high ceilings, a cozy wood-burning fireplace, exposed brick, hardwood floors, and lovely west-facing windows, this bright and quiet home has a special warmth and comfort. The open, renovated, windowed kitchen has high-end stainless steel appliances (Bertazzoni range, Miele dishwasher and Fisher & Paykel refrigerator) and opens freely into the living room. Both the full and half baths are renovated. An architectural staircase with clever built-in storage leads from the kitchen to the upper level. The upstairs larger room features wood-beamed ceilings that are reminiscent of an Italian palazzo. The layout is flexible and has been used in many different ways. The roof deck is a large private retreat with 360-degree views of the Empire State Building and Freedom Tower. The elevatored building has a laundry room, storage and a live-in super. The location, in the heart of the West Village, is as good as it gets with the Hudson River Park, the Whitney, the Highline, the new Little Island park, the Saturday Abingdon Square Greenmarket, and all of the restaurants, shops and charming streets to explore within moments of your door. There is an assessment of $244.55. Washer/dryers are permitted in the apartment with board approval. Pied-a-terres are allowed. Building is pet-friendly.
