This $600K Greenwich Village 1BR features six windows and many custom details.

There’s lots to love about Greenwich Village, from the historic homes to Washington Square Park to the amazing restaurants and bars. One thing that’s harder to love about this neighborhood: the home prices. But that’s where our Deal of the Week comes in. The 1-bedroom at 194 Bleecker St. #3B is in the heart of the neighborhood, and has plenty of light and charm — along with a price that won’t break your heart.

The Price: $600,000

The median asking price for a 1-bedroom in Greenwich Village is $1,149,500 — almost twice the asking price of our Deal of the Week.

Buyers who put down the minimum 20 percent payment, or $120,000, can expect to see monthly payments her of about $3,379. This includes a mortgage payment of roughly $2,305 and a maintenance fee of $1,074. And it compares favorably with the median rent for 1-bedrooms in Greenwich Village, which is currently $3,697.

Why You’ll Love It …

The renovated third-floor unit has gorgeous hardwood floors throughout, and is always bright thanks to its six windows. There’s even a window in the kitchen and the bathroom — not always common in NYC apartments.

Plus, there are unique opportunities for storage space. The living room features four built-in bookshelves, perfect for storing books, knickknacks, or other items. Meanwhile, the bedroom has two sizable custom closets and can fit a queen-size bed.

The kitchen and bathroom have both been updated. The kitchen, which is open to the living room, has stainless-steel appliances and sleek white cabinetry. A green tile backsplash provides a pop of color. Meanwhile, the bathroom has marble finishes and white subway tile for a classic look.

There are also two through-wall AC units included in the apartment — one in the living room and one in the bedroom — helping to keep it cool in the hotter months.

Just two blocks south of Washington Square Park, this apartment is truly in the heart of Greenwich Village. Great eateries, theaters, and other entertainment are every way you turn. Plus, the 1 train is a super-quick walk away, and the A, C, E, B, D, F and M trains are all nearby.

Copurchasing, parents buying, and pied-à-terre use are all allowed, and sublets are allowed right from move-in. To top it all off, the building is pet-friendly for owners.

… And Why You Might Not

This unit is a third-floor walkup, which, while it isn’t as bad as a higher-floor unit, may still be annoying when you’re coming home with groceries. And while there’s storage in both the living room and bedroom here, there aren’t many closets otherwise. Hiding your vacuum or hanging up your coat will require some creative solutions.

Lastly, of course, the place is not large. The kitchen is small and the living space won’t hold a lot of furniture. But as an apartment in a great location at a fraction of the neighborhood median price, this one is definitely worth checking out.
