This bright penthouse with a breathtaking private landscaped roof deck is a slice of heaven in the heart of the West Village. Despite being at the center of it all, the home feels like a secluded getaway. With charming pre-war architecture, unobstructed iconic city views, and top notch finishes, living here will make you feel like you're on top of the world. A charming stoop entry and beautiful brownstone facade immediately welcome you into this building on one of the best streets in Manhattan. Up four floors, you are greeted into the penthouse with high ceilings, exposed brick walls, hand-scraped teak wood floors, and three exposures (south, west, and north). Entertaining is easy and elegant in the large open kitchen and huge dining space, with a decorative fireplace and plenty of natural light flooding in from a bay window. These classic finishes are seamlessly integrated with sleek cabinets and stainless steel appliances. Beautiful details, including another decorative fireplace, continue into the separate living room. Three large framed windows with original hidden shutters provide fantastic northern exposures and a clear view over all the surrounding low-rise buildings in this Greenwich Village Historic district. The bedrooms are sun-drenched with high ceilings and large closets. The bathrooms are modern, light and luxurious with stylish marble finishes. If the N/S/W exposures throughout the home somehow isn't enough, head upstairs to a spectacular private roofdeck. With modern and comfortable outdoor seating, including a large dining table, it's easy to sit back and enjoy rare unobstructed views of the iconic World Trade Center and Empire State Building. This penthouse is like a luxury treehouse in one of the most sought after neighborhoods in Manhattan. The new homeowner will enjoy a longstanding tradition: the beautiful baroque style mirror hanging above the mantle is passed down from owner to owner. 274 W 12th St. is a rare pre-war condo built in 1889. Living in the Greenwich Village Historic district provides a peaceful, laid back lifestyle with tree-lined, cobblestone streets. Yet, the trendiest cafs, restaurants, bookstores, and shops are just down the street and around the corner, including Cafe Cluny, Sant Ambroeus, and Dante. The close-knit, kind community makes the West Village an endearing place you'll never want to leave. If you ever do need to get around, though, there's easy access to 1/2/3, A/C/E, and L subway lines via 14th street. Please note there is an assessment for common repairs of $584/month. Pets are welcome.
