west village studio - rental of the week

This West Village studio is big on charm — and yes, that fabulous fireplace actually works!

Now this is a true West Village find. It’s in a prime Cornelia Street location, for starters (heads up, Taylor Swift fans — we’re just a few doors down from her famed townhouse!). But unlike many West Village studios, this one has more than just location going for it. Our Rental of the Week really goes above and beyond in the personality department, with gorgeous arched windows, a fireplace that’s both decorative and functional, and lots more. All at a price that’s a major bargain for the area.

Address: 11 Cornelia St. #3F

Price: $2,120

Size: studio

Neighborhood: West Village

Best feature: Those windows! That fireplace! Honestly, that would be enough under normal circumstances. But take a look at this West Village studio’s setting: It’s inside a carriage house in the private, landscaped courtyard of 11 Cornelia Street, an adorably unique building that’s more Mediterranean villa than apartment complex. The place just oozes charm, even for a neighborhood that’s literally known for its charm.

Why it’s a deal: This area is always in high demand, and rents there tend to be appropriately high as well. The median asking rent in the West Village is $3,695, according to StreetEasy’s Data Dashboard. That puts our Deal of the Week more than $1,500 per month lower than the neighborhood average.

Biggest drawback: The charm is big, but the space is small. You’d be hard-pressed to fit a sleeping area, a sitting area, and a dining table into this apartment. But then again, a cozy fire awaits for chilly nights, and on nice days, that gorgeous courtyard is like having your own private outdoor cafe!
