This restored prewar apartment in the heart of the West Village features original architectural elements and details reflecting the refinements and sophistication of another era, alongside updates and improvements that bring it up to the standards of comfort and convenience expected of a stylish New York apartment today.
Past the formal entry foyer, you'll immediately notice wood floors throughout, beamed ceilings, a wood-burning fireplace with black marble mantlepiece imported from England, and generous closet space, including a master walk-in and a large hall closet in the foyer. The new kitchen is highlighted by gleaming Calacatta Bettogli countertops against Morrocan tile backsplashes from Mosaic House. Appliances include a Subzero fridge with water filter and ice maker, Lacanche range with French top and work ring, and Fisher Paykel dishwasher drawers. There is a Perrin & Rowe faucet for the sink. Offering a hint of formality, the kitchen is just out of view of the living room, although close at hand with a bright dining nook bridging the two spaces.
Within 1,250 square feet, this two-bedroom residence's layout is emblematic of the attention to detail seen in many fine prewar buildings, such as large windows offering exposure in three directions, flooding the home with light and air and offering unobstructed city views, and very strategic room placement, maximizing privacy where needed and spaciousness everywhere else. Other considerations include the eastern-facing bedrooms, which take in the morning sun. The western-facing living room has the benefit of direct sun in the afternoon, along with getting that magical early evening glow, just in time for dinner and cocktails.
Both the guest and master bathrooms are equipped with polished nickel Waterworks fixtures, a Toto toilet, and a vanity of Carrara marble. The baseboards and door casing are Carrara marble as well, and the Morrocan tile floors are from Mosaic House. The guest bathroom also has a Waterworks cast iron tub.
The Waverly is a classic New York art deco landmark built at the height of the Roaring Twenties - 1928, to be exact - with a rich art deco facade and impressive original architectural highlights throughout. The residential co-op building features secured bicycle storage space and a storage area for residents' other personal items, a 24-hour doorman, a live-in super, a laundry room, and a service elevator. The building allows pet owners.
