Now that the calamitous days of the holiday season are drawing to a close, some of you steadfast New Yorkers may yearn for the peace and solitude of a cottage in the woods: to collect ones thoughts, assess your surprisingly extravagant holiday budgets, and resolve what gifts should be kept, re-gifted, or sent back to the store. While Manhattan doesn't offer much in the way of enchanting forests, there are a few cottage-like homes sprinkled alongside the island's hidden mews.

One of the most charming and discreet of these private communities is Pomander Walk , a 27-unit enclave tucked behind the wrought-iron fences between West 94th and 95th streets, on an Upper West Side block bounded by Broadway and West End Avenue. According to the community's sole listing being marketed by Corcoran, Pomander Walk was built in 1921 by architects King and Campbell as a replica of a street by the same name in the town of Chiswick just outside of London. The gated common street was made famous by author Louis Parker who named a book after the mews which later became a Broadway play.
Pomander Walk, #123 is ideal for you weary urbanites who remain open to cozy living quarters and still cherish the communal spirit that urban life can offer. The three-bed, three-floor abode at #123 has been a hot potato of sorts, having been sold three times since 2006, including a sale this past August for $1.705M. It returned to the market in early October for $1.995 million.
Buyer's remorse? Maybe. According to a story from Curbed, the co-op community has a strict vetting process and residents are "supremely social," where children play unsupervised, pets roam unleashed, and there are communal parties for Bastille Day and other events.
A soulless virtual renovation
If that doesn't faze you, The Tudor-style home at #123 features present fairy-tale window boxes, a first floor devoted to cooking and dining, a second-floor living room and adjacent bedroom, and two other cozy bedrooms on the top floor. The master bedroom on the top floor has vaulted ceiling, exposed brick wall, and a full bath with a rain shower.
Aren't these the cutest floor plans you've ever seen?
