West Village Apartment Rental Photos and Description
Say arrivederci to blandness and bring on the biscotti
La Dolce Vita
Europhiles have long sought out the West Village, where Manhattan’s rigid grid collapses into meandering side streets and a calmer pace that’s almost continental in its relaxation. The neighbourhood’s historic community of Italian immigrants has given way to an international jet set representing the worlds of finance and fashion, but the touches of the Old World remain, from bakeries selling pignoli cookies to family-owned Italian butcher shops. This sleek West Village one bedroom brings a gloss of Italian modernism to this classic setting - say arrivederci to blandness and bring on the biscotti.
Your host is a bachelor who is half Spanish, half Italian, and all charm. Educated in Europe, he is a mergers and acquisitions lawyer when he’s not training as a cyclist and runner.
From Alfa Romeo to Prada, we trust Italians to make everything look better. In this home, a base of rustic solidity - wood floors stained a dark chestnut colour, benches upholstered in leather and brass, a sofa in neutral grey - is offset by glittering details, like the sparkling chandelier in the entryway, the clear Lucite light fixtures, and colourful Warholesque pop art. Enjoy a glass of chianti at the dining table, or prepare a pasta pomodoro in the kitchen, where dark wood is brightened with frosted glass cabinets and inset lighting.
You will have dolce dreams upstairs in the lofted master bedroom, where the dark undertones of the first floor give way to a soothing white minimalism. The master bathroom is embellished with - what else? - Italian marble.
La Notte and Beyond
Few neighbourhoods offer the visitor more delightful meandering than the West Village. Dining ranges from the innovative Italian cooking at Mario Batali’s Babbo to a humble but excellent pizza at John’s, the beloved Village mainstay. If the weather’s fine, take your gelato to the Hudson River Greenway, or wander uptown to the High Line Park.
