A luminous studio apartment is now available in the Bleecker Court co-op building in Manhattan’s Greenwich Village. Treated to a complete remodel, the 650-square-foot space boasts a chef’s kitchen, refinished oak hardwood floors, and, less obvious to the eye, new plumbing and electrical work.
Originally built in 1930, the south-facing home is a trove of charm and character, not the least of which is an exposed beam dating back to 1872, held up with cast iron pillars, that runs through the kitchen and sleeping area. Two skylights—one in the main living space, the other above the bed—usher in natural light that’s then reflected off the white walls, enhancing the overall sense of space.
Steps away from the living area is the small, fully equipped kitchen, featuring custom cabinetry, concrete countertops, and a deep sink with its own water filtration system. As part of the renovation, high-end Viking appliances were integrated in the space, including a stainless-steel refrigerator, dishwasher, and a large, five-burner gas range/oven with a commercial-grade vent hood. "This is a very special apartment," says Alan Chorm, one of the listing agents. "Not only is it located in one of the most notable co-ops in the neighborhood, but it also comes with a real chef’s kitchen, which is especially great for those who have taken on cooking since the quarantine."
A steel-frame sliding glass door separates the main living areas with the bedroom—a space that is large enough to comfortably accommodate a king-size bed. Solar and blackout shades are also installed throughout the apartment, in addition to lighting dimmers. The remodeled bathroom is located on the other side of the kitchen, near the entrance.
Bleecker Court is managed as a co-operative building and comes with a full-time doorman and attentive, live-in super. In total, the building spans 14 floors and offers a total of 243 residences, several of which are also for sale. The prices of the neighboring units range from $450,000 for smaller-size studios to $3,000,000 for four-bedroom apartments.
