West Village House Rental Photos and Description
4 bedroom, 4 bathroom spacious and relaxed family home by the Hudson River
A crown jewel
If the West Village were a kingdom, this historic 1829 townhouse would be located right in the centre, surveying the homey restaurants, quiet streets and tiny boutiques. The Hudson River, perfect for strolls, is just one block away, and just to the north of your domain you'll find the High Line, New York's only elevated park. After exploring the neighbourhood, you can retire to your castle, a home that boasts four floors of delightful chambers for you and your entourage.
Your hosts are a homemaker and a lawyer with roots in New England. They share their home with their two young princes, a princess with a serious sense of style (if her room is any indication), and two black kittens, Cinder & Soot, who accompany the family when they travel.
This apartment offers inspired use of vertical space so there's nothing cluttering your fiefdom. Hold court in the stately parlour or the inviting kitchen, which features rustic wood flooring and slotted ceilings. Regal flourishes like ornate gilt mirrors and carved fireplaces surprise you at every turn.
Large windows embrace you, from the playroom to the bedrooms, two of which offer rampart-like slits of sunlight with peaceful sloped ceilings. The children's rooms are a fairytale, with bedskirts and chandeliers for girls and regal blue walls for boys. You'll find the expansive master bedroom on the third floor, a kingdom of light with windows opposite the bed and a mammoth mirror just above it. The bathroom features his and hers sinks, so there's no risk of territorial squabbles.
Reign over the village
Banquet options range from the gourmet to the gastropub — nearby you'll find One If By Land, Two If By Sea, home to a thousand happily-ever-after marriage proposals, The Spotted Pig, Magnolia Bakery, and many a delightful hole-in-the-wall. The neighbourhoods that border are bountiful—to the north there's Chelsea with its fine galleries, and to the southeast the luxurious shopping of Soho.
