The one-bedroom duplex boasts a very private patio
This pretty one-bedroom apartment comes from 335 West 21st Street, a three-building co-op comprised of prewar buildings. Inside, it’s maintained a lot of that pre-war charm. The living room is decorated by an exposed brick wall, painted white, and a decorative fireplace. 10-foot ceilings and five-inch-wide plank floors don’t hurt, either.
The apartment’s a duplex, with a bathroom, kitchen and living/dining area on the upper floor, and the master bedroom and den on the lower floor. The real highlight is the private patio, located just off the den on the lower level. Surrounding by a tall wood fence and under a tree canopy, the lush space looks as romantic as can be. (You can’t go wrong with a little greenery and some tea lights.) The brick patio isn’t huge, but it certainly compensates with its looks.
The kitchen isn’t large, either, but benefits from a “space-saving European design,” according to the listing, that includes lots of storage and a long stone countertop. The bathroom has been decked out with subway tile and a bi-fold glass shower door.
Besides the private patio—which the listing dreamily recommends for “al fresco dining or lazy mornings spent over coffee and croissants”—335 West 21st Street has its own furnished, landscaped roof deck that spans all three buildings. Other building amenities include a live-in super, central laundry and a bike storage room. And if the private patio and roof deck aren’t enough green space, you’re a block-and-a-half from the High Line. That’s a perk that you’re definitely paying for.
