This unique one-bedroom, two-bathroom West Village duplex in a pre-war townhouse is evocative of old New York. Upon entering this home, discover original architectural details, three fireplaces with original marble mantelpieces, a large private ipe wood decked terrace and an unbeatable location. All of this within a historic townhouse co-op offering an exceptional literary and artistic provenance due to some of its notable former residents, such as novelist John Cheever, photographer Walker Evans, and internationally acclaimed painters Ben Shahn and Moses Soyer. This sun filled home provides original hardwood floors, ceiling height over 9.5 feet, and double hung, paned windows facing both north and south.

A charming gallery entry flanked by closets and a full guest bathroom provide a warm welcome. To the left, a tall archway invites you into a spacious front parlor with northern exposure that overlooks treetop and West Village neighborhood views. The sizable kitchen offers glass-front cabinetry and granite counters which surround stainless steel appliances, including a gas cooktop, built-in convection-microwave, an under the counter fridge and freezer, and a new dishwasher. Past the entry, to the right, a second living room offers a generous footprint for seating or dining with lovely garden views.

The adjacent den/office is ideal for work or artistic pursuits, with French doors that open onto your decked private terrace with stunning neighborhood views. Ascend the spiral staircase to discover the expansive bedroom suite offering southern exposure and light with garden views and plenty of space for a fitness or sitting area. A roomy closet and a skylit en suite bathroom with an Asko washer-dryer complete this wonderful 5-room West Village retreat. Built in 1834 by a collective of well-known builders, the co-op comprised of 21-23 Bethune Street is a stately brick townhouse that stands among a row of Greek Revival buildings the Greenwich Village Historic District report calls "one of the best preserved of its kind in the city, [providing] ample evidence of the good taste and fine workmanship of the period." The well-established, intimate walk-up building has a newly installed ButterflyTM intercom system and allows pets and pieds-à-terre with board approval. Located on a quintessential tree-lined block, this home is surrounded by the quaint streets and spectacular amenities that make the West Village one of the world’s most coveted enclaves. This duplex captures the essence of the rich bohemian culture of the neighborhood from a bygone era, a time when the creative energy of artists and writers filled the nearby blocks.

Fantastic shopping, dining, nightlife and art venues line the nearby blocks, within close proximity to the Whitney Museum, The High Line and 500-acre Hudson River Park. Transportation from this central district is effortless thanks to A/C/E, 1/2/3, B/D/F/M, L and PATH trains, excellent bus service and CitiBike stations within easy reach. Quarterly assessment of $1,611.90 currently in place through 2030 and bi -annually in 2031.
