Perfectly positioned in the charming West Village neighborhood within the Greenwich Village Historic District, Apartment 5EF at 100 Bank Street is being offered for sale for the very first time. A thoughtful architect's renovation has joined two apartments to create this splendid two-bedroom, two-bath home.
The substantial entry foyer leads to the master bedroom suite, which offers room for a king-sized bed as well as additional furniture, two closets with custom built-ins and a through-wall air conditioner. The expansive, windowed, en-suite bath with a glass-walled, rainforest shower, white subway tiles, a large vanity and a linen closet creates a spa-like atmosphere.
A gallery leads from the entry foyer to the separate dining room, which easily seats eight to ten. Overlooking sky, treetops and the graduated Greenwich Village skyline with classic architectural details, the generous living room could retain its current open and contemporary feeling or encompass two conversation areas in a traditional style.
Recently renovated, the eat-in kitchen features stainless steel appliances, including a gas range, a microwave, a GE refrigerator and a Maytag QuietSeries dishwasher, custom wood cabinetry with ample storage and under-cabinet lighting, and a quartz countertop with under-mount sink and a glass mosaic tile backsplash.
The second bedroom features two exposures and a double closet and can fit a queen-sized bed and occasional furniture. Black-and-white tile flooring and a full tub grace the windowed, second bath.
Eastern and southern exposures fill the home with light, and the windows have been updated and insulated to create a tranquil and quiet living space.
Oak hardwood floors, crown molding, plantation shutters and built-in shelving in the main rooms lend the home harmonious proportions which are commensurate with the neighborhood. Two storage units on the building's cellar level are included with the purchase of Apartment 5EF.
A mid-20th Century cooperative, 100 Bank Street offers residents privacy and essential amenities, such as an elevator, a laundry room, bike storage, a garage (with access via waitlist) and the services of a resident superintendent. 100 Bank Street is a pet-friendly community and is served by the A, C, E, L, 1, 2 and 3 trains at 14th Street and is a short journey from the B, D, F and M trains at West 4th Street.
On the United States National Register of Historic Places and a New York City Landmark, Greenwich Village, with its cobblestone streets and historic architecture, is one of the city's centers of culture. From jazz clubs such as the Village Vanguard and Smalls to art galleries such as the Westbeth and the Whitney Museum of American Art, the West Village provides myriad opportunities to enjoy the arts. The exciting nightlife of the Meatpacking District, the nature found along the Hudson River Greenway, local boutiques, and outstanding dining at Michelin-starred Wallse and local favorites Cafe Kitsune, Sant' Ambroeus, La Ripaille and Myers of Keswick, make the West Village one of the most attractive neighborhoods in New York City.
