    Love-Love-LOVE IT!!! Since I’m a Hybrid-Girl, loving BOTH hard-core urban and rural areas alike, this place speaks to my City Side, deeply. The lounge in this tiny home puts me to mind of the 12′ x 12′ studio I once had: one wall was all windows, one wall was a fireplace with twin built-in bookcases flanking it’s sides, and the other two walls were kitchenette/loo and closet. I miss that place but NOT the fold-up/fold down furniture….ugh!

    The storage in the wee bedroom is so bang on, I saved the photo to my tiny house folder. Genius use of space. For those people still able to bend at their knees, the split Freezer/Frig is a nice division of use.

    Thanks, Alex! Great ‘share’ of a tiny urban home. 😀

      I wanted to add this description from the “CoreNYC” website. If you visit Alex’s link, there’s much LARGER photos of this gem.

      “Little house in the big city! Hidden behind a cast iron gate on West 11th Street between Washington and Greenwich Streets is a historic circa 1850 “back house,” surrounded by a serene private landscaped courtyard. This light-filled “secret garden” contains flowers, multiple sitting areas, and a 50-foot elm tree. Situated on the first floor of this back house is this delightful one-bedroom home which features many old world details, such as a wood burning fireplace, beautiful built-in book cases and oak hardwood flooring. The adorable kitchen features a ceramic farm sink and thick Carrera counters and backsplash. The pin-drop quiet bedroom has space for a queen-sized bed and boasts ample closet space. There is also a dedicated storage unit. Conveniently located in the coveted Far West Village, this pet friendly cooperative residence is near Hudson River Park, the High Line, and some of the West Village’s most famous restaurants.”

    This is an absolutely perfect NYC apartment, and it’s pet friendly, too! It’ll be snapped up in no time at that price. Love, love, love all of the built-ins.

  • SteveDenver April 26, 2015, 9:53 am

    This actually looks roomy and spacious for NY apartments. The building is astounding and my favorite features are the wood burning fireplace and big farmhouse kitchen sink.

  • Dominick Bundy April 26, 2015, 9:54 am

    Very nicely decorated, and cozy. But at a $625,000 price tag will most likely require a mortgage for most people. Then one is back in the rat race of the mercy of debt and dealing with banks for another 30 years…

    • Comet May 1, 2015, 12:57 am

      The fact that this is priced UNDER 1 million is astonishing in and of it’s self. And–this site features ALL kinds of homes–not just the ones that are featured as NO MORTGAGE.

      I get a bit tired of the whole “Oh I can’t possibly live in xyz situation–that would mean I would have to pay TAXES. Or RENT. Or a MORTGAGE. ” And the ones who whine that they must park their converted Radio Flyer wagon Tiny House on some one ELSE’s property to–avoid TAXES.

      Now==I am not in favor of paying more taxes than I need to or can afford–but I am adult enough to know that SOMEONE is paying the taxes on that land–the tiny house parker might NOT be the one cutting the check but SOME ONE is. IF the host lets them live there rent free–well that IS very generous—but that still means SOME ONE has to pay up. If they pay rent–part of that is GOING TO PAY THE TAXES AND THE UPKEEP. Land does not maintain itself–driveways don’t plow themselves or pave themselves and trees don’t prune themselves the way WE would like them to on their own— Solar panel on the roof of the TH is great but most will NEED “Shore power” for some things and that WILL need to be PAID FOR–by some one. Ditto the water–even a well most likely will need a pump driven by electricity-add in internet access; any TV needs; you are either going to need to find some place to do your laundry or a convenient stream. Some place to dump those “composting toilets” or black water/grey water.

      I will say that I live in NY altho far far Upstate from this little gem–but THEIR taxes are probably LESS than my one rural acre and 1500 Sq Ft house costs. I could move into this place in a heartbeat–simply lovely.

      • Dominick Bundy May 1, 2015, 2:17 am

        Well good for you that , you could live in this tiny little gem in a heart beat..What I find more “astonishing” Is that being $625,000 is still over half a million and too close to million for me to digest. What kind of jobs do these people have to afford such outrages prices ? I’m a life long New Yorker myself , (upstate) and have live as well in the big apple. So I know what the cost of living in such a rat race entails.. but this site is called TINY HOUSE TALK ,SMALL SPACE FREEDOM…And freedom to me would mean being debt free and mortgage free. not to be enslaved to a bank for 30 years. just to have a place to sleep and store stuff, that probably one doesn’t need anyway .. Everyone pays taxes to some degree, (even the homeless) but to live off the grid fully self contained. sounds like another alternative , that can be a better situation to save money with less headaches and stress..

      • Cahow May 1, 2015, 7:40 pm

        Hi, Dominick. You wrote, “Well good for you that , you could live in this tiny little gem in a heart beat.” I’m going to give you the benefit of the doubt about that sentence and believe that you truly ARE happy for anyone who can ‘afford this little gem in a heart beat.”

        Later, you asked, “What kind of jobs do these people have to afford such outrages prices ?” Well, ‘outrageous’ is subjective, isn’t it? But, if you truly want insight into WHO can afford this ‘gem’, here are some of the occupations of my clients, all of whom are 50-85 years of age. But first, lest you think that this is the “Silver Spoon in the Mouth” Crowd, think again. With the exception of ONE couple, every.single.one. of my client’s came from mundane and humble beginnings: one of 12 kids on a dairy farm in South Dakota; poor Irish/Polish/Jewish immigrant parents and they are the FIRST generation not only born in America but with a high school and university degree; very, very poor “South-Siders” in Chicago where they were the ONLY Caucasian kids in their neighborhood and school.

        Here are some of their occupations that allow them to amply afford housing like this: 4 University Professors; 2 Doctors; 5 Private School Teachers; 3 Lawyers; 4 Bankers; 7 Privately Owned Company Owners: cleaning service, construction, custom iron fabrication; 1 Auto Repair Shop owner; 1 Head Hunter for Fortune 500 Companies; and 1 Veterinarian. The Auto Shop owner, by the way, escaped with his family from The Laotian Civil War; he lost all of his teeth when he was a child from malnutrition, eating only sugar cane. His daughter and 4 sons now run the business, while he and his wife know “freedom” and split their time between THREE homes that they own around the U.S., visiting relatives and friends that also sought political asylum from Thailand and Vietnam.

        There’s loads more but that provides a sampling for you. Many of these people, I’ve known for decades and have met their honest and humble parent’s…all of whom are “Salt of the Earth.” Not ANY of my client’s are Trust Fund Babies but have put in the schooling, hours and hard work to get what they have and I don’t begrudge them a single latte nor square foot of space.

        To me, they are Shining Examples of “You Reap What You Sow” and their ‘crops’ have finally matured, allowing them ‘freedom’ from poverty, starvation and homelessness, of which most of their parent’s were all too familiar with for most of their lives.

        • Dominick Bundy April 26, 2016, 11:19 am

          WOW! That was some long winded history and background lesson you gave as to who all these reap what you “sow” people are and were they came from. Which still doesn’t change the fact this home is well over half a million. And all those reap what you “sowers” have the funds and are financially set. So Good for them.. Apparently being mortgage free and living off the grid is not a consideration for those kind..Now as far as you giving me any benefit of any doubt rather I could or could not afford to live in a place like that in a heat beat would be irrelevant to me . Thing is less can be more. As nice a layout this place has. To me having a substantial amount of money at all times equals freedom and time to do things without stress. but cluttering oneself with things to make them happy . With credit card debts that never seem to get paid off as well as 30 year mortgages . that keeps most people tied down and anchored with weight of the imaginary ball and chain around your neck would equal constant stress to me opposed to being debt free living with a healthy net worth , and simplifying your life to the max,, give one more time to relax and live a less worry free kind of life.. I think that was the original premise of what this tiny house movement was set out to be.. That’s all..

  • SteveDenver April 26, 2015, 9:54 am

    This actually looks roomy and spacious for NY apartments. The building is astounding and my favorite features are the wood burning fireplace and big farmhouse kitchen sink… only $1087/mo maintenance!

  • Lynnette April 26, 2015, 10:16 am

    Absolutely stunning.

  • Christina April 26, 2015, 10:32 am

    Gorgeous apt.! Fantastic setting! Not a bad price at all for NYC.

  • Bev April 26, 2015, 11:00 am

    I love this apartment–where it is, and the interior design–just adorable with lots of character.

  • alice h April 26, 2015, 11:46 am

    Gorgeous and well laid out. Super price for the area and what you get. That courtyard, wow! I would hope the neighbours you share with are a congenial bunch, but it looks like a perfect space to enjoy some great BBQ’s. Out of my price range and the monthly fees would be way beyond my budget but for a person that could afford it this is a perfect little gem.

  • Candide33 April 26, 2015, 12:27 pm

    I don’t know who’s kidding who but that is terrible! Piecemeal renovations, the fixtures from different centuries, you can tell that it has never been completely redone just patched up a bunch of times. When was the last time that bathroom has been redone, the 1960s? The ONLY thing it has going for it is location because you could not rent that for more than $200 a month around here.

    • Roxanne April 26, 2015, 6:45 pm

      Where are you living that you could rent anything for 200.00 a month ?

    • Rozz April 27, 2015, 1:17 am

      I agree on all points, Candide33! That bathroom sink is just gross and pieced together! And that bedroom couldn’t possibly fit a Queen-sized bed… Not. For. Me!

  • Sabine April 26, 2015, 12:42 pm

    Sadly, I don’t live in New York City, nor do I plan on moving there. Pictures like these help inspire me with the planning and/or decorating of my future tiny house. It’s just getting real depressing as it doesn’t look like that’s ever going to happen.

  • Andrea Hardy April 26, 2015, 1:12 pm

    now that’s all kinds of cute!

  • Frank April 26, 2015, 2:15 pm

    If you know this area…..it is extremely expensive to purchase and maintain….way out of the league of most people…..this little gem could easily cost 3 to 5 millions of dollars…..location….location….location

  • Kelly Libert April 26, 2015, 2:35 pm

    Charming and way under priced for NYC and that neighborhood in particular. I wonder what the requirements of the coop board are? In NYC, they are known for having stringent rules for admittance. Net worth, salary, etc. If you don’t pass approval by the board, you can’t buy the coop. If they require a cash sale and twice that again in assets, I can see why it remained available long enough for the sale to be published.

  • Brian April 26, 2015, 3:31 pm

    What a great city pad, although small on the plan, it appears much larger in the photos. I’m really impressed and just love the fireplace, the bookcases and the Windows which though oversized for the room, makes the room appear much larger. What a dream it would be to live in. Thankyou so much for sharing and cheers from Australia.

  • Anna April 26, 2015, 5:14 pm

    This is so gorgeous! The WBFP is perfect and it’s set in a lovely cloistered area – would kill for it!

  • Jim April 26, 2015, 5:30 pm

    Great bedroom built-ins. Nice courtyard and building exterior as well.

  • Roxanne April 26, 2015, 6:46 pm

    Where are you living that you could rent anything for 200.00 a month ?

  • Karen R April 26, 2015, 7:00 pm

    Perfect little gem in a great location.

  • Tim April 27, 2015, 2:23 am

    Fabulous use of space, and property is good on the eye.

  • Adrienne April 27, 2015, 11:33 am

    Absolutely stunning and jaw dropping. I love this so much.

    By the way, the real estate agency CORE is featured on HGTV’s show “Selling New York.”

  • GINNY Brill April 28, 2015, 2:09 pm

    The apt. Is great, it has everything one would need!

  • George Washington April 28, 2015, 6:01 pm

    My fellow countrymen and women, you have ALL lost your minds to think this is a good deal. Years of servitude to live in a place where the natural world exists in small bits and pieces, if that. And it really is a crapjoint, sorry, but pieced together.

    • Cahow May 1, 2015, 6:56 pm

      Hey, George Washington! I can see why you are disappointed in the workmanship of this home, coming from Mount Vernon as your ‘tiny’ home. Perhaps you and your buddies, Alexander Hamilton and Thomas Jefferson, can use SketchUp and submit some of your plans for what YOU believe is a “good deal”?

      P.S. I really like your monument!

      • Comet May 1, 2015, 7:59 pm

        @CAHOW—Very clever! LOL!!!! And he didn’t even BUILD Mt Vernon–I believe it was his BROTHER who planned it and built most of it before he died of (I believe) TB.

        Now if this had been Thomsa Jefferson–on the other hand!!!–we KNOW he was a fabulous architect and builder and amazing inventor—

      • Cahow May 1, 2015, 8:24 pm

        ~giggle~ Thanks, Comet! George’s comment just ‘begged’ for a proper reply, don’t you agree? Alex should be chuffed that our First Commander in Chief stopped by to post something on his humble blog. 😉

        And you are correct about Mount Vernon, you clever clog! Here’s a blurb: “When George Washington’s ancestors acquired the estate it was known as Little Hunting Creek Plantation, after the nearby Little Hunting Creek. However, when Washington’s older half-brother, Lawrence Washington, inherited, he changed its name to Mount Vernon in honor of Vice Admiral Edward Vernon, famed for the War of Jenkin’s Ear and capture of the lightly-defended Portobelo, Colón. Vernon had been Lawrence’s commanding officer in the British Royal Navy, and when George Washington inherited the property he retained the name.”

        It went through THREE Washington’s before George inherited it and placed his stamp upon it.

  • Dee April 29, 2015, 5:34 pm

    For the people complaining about the price….do any of you have any concept of what it cost to live in NYC ??? This little apartment at $625,000 I’m thinking is a steal……..I’ve seen listings for studios for $2,000 a month that are 1/3 the size of this little house…….I even saw a listing for a “tiny” apartment (one large room with a divider) for $1,000,000 that was as they said in the listing was just “renovated”….. as far as the sink in the bathroom goes……change out the darn thing…………go to Lowes or Homedepot, for $100-$150 you can put in a new one maybe a little smaller and probably increased the value and the size of the space by $1,000… As far as renting for $200, you couldn’t even get to sit on the front step for that !!!!!

    • Cahow April 30, 2015, 4:54 pm

      Dee: THANK YOU!!!!

      Everything you wrote about NYC is 100% true. And I loved the “front step” example. LOL

      I guess that folks who hate urban areas will always feel at ease hatin’ on cities.

      By the way, you might find this interesting: I heard on CBS News today, that a survey of 18-30 years olds MOST Desired Cities to live in are: 1) NYC! yeah; 2) London; and 3) Berlin. The news also said that 50% of the globes population live in high density cities, by choice. Just found it interesting, that’s all. 😀

    • Jennifer May 21, 2015, 8:28 am

      I don’t think I would have laid this out the way they did, but there are features I really love like the white painted brick walls, the huge windows with the courtyard, and the fireplace. The layout of the kitchen appears to be the most awkward thing ever, and I can’t think where there would be a workspace.

      Concerning the price – a friend has an alcove apartment in the East Village which was just shy of half a million and she got a great deal on that and it was I think 10 years ago? I wish she’d let me photograph her space as a “tiny person living in a tiny apartment”. She’s a VP for a famous company and might be able to afford more, but she tends to live simply, and it’s all about the location.

      • Jennifer May 21, 2015, 8:30 am

        I don’t know how I posted this as a reply to you, Dee. My apologies. Not enough caffeine in my system yet! 🙂

  • U Godda B Kiddn Me April 29, 2015, 11:31 pm

    Under 300 sq ft and it’s $625,000? And there are maintenance fees over $1,000 per month? That is not a good deal.

    • Comet May 1, 2015, 1:11 am

      There was a small NYC apt featured on Apt therapy recently where the MONTHLY RENT for something MUCH smaller than this was around $4000 a MONTH–think of that and do the math–that is $48,000 a YEAR just to RENT there. Now I don’t know what a mortgage payment on this price would be and of course you have to add in the “maintanence” of $1000 per month-but–at that rate this might be a bargain; it certainly IS way under market value and I can’t quite puzzle out WHY–it’s lovely and the location is as they say–to die for. I spent plenty of time in NYC apartments and altho I have been in many higher end ones in fancy buildings–this IS the epitome of NYC chic. Very Audrey Hepburn. Very Katherine Hepburn with that fireplace!

      So what if the BATHROOM SINK is not the height of fashion–what; it’s not a VESSEL SINK? I find those ugly and impracticle—what should be in there is an old white veined marble top with a beautiful routed edge and a porcelain basin with a lovely wood cabinet for the base—and oddly enough IKEA has several in porcelain that LOOK like these older sinks and would fit in there perfectly.

      Thank you Alex for showing us this–I hope I can get it to Pin as I LOVE IT. Unless I win the lottery I could never afford it but a gurl can dream can’t she?

      • U Godda B 2 May 14, 2015, 11:07 pm

        I think the “low” price is due to it being a co-op rather than a condo.

  • Elyse Paulus-Mount June 5, 2015, 3:29 pm

    The price blows me away. I love the use of space but I think I’ll stay near Chicago. I have 4000 feet for less than $400,000. Too big for our present needs but not this expensive!

  • kristina nadreau July 3, 2015, 6:06 am

    IF I needed to live in NYC and IF I had the means, I would choose this apt. in a minute. this is a gorgeous tiny apt. It has every thing I would need or want. I would like to improve the kitchen layout if possible. Replacing the bath vanity is obvious and an inexpensive investment in a “jewel”.

  • Trish Dee April 26, 2016, 6:39 pm

    This is a great place, and given the location, the right price, just not for TH, off-the-grid people. I love all the storage in this little gem.
    It is very livable.

  • JoA April 26, 2016, 9:26 pm

    This is a lovely coop and really well organized. I am not looking at the location as much as I am not moving to NYC, but looking at the blue print I can get ideas on how to arrange a small home to be livable and inviting at the same time. I love the bookcases and the fireplace and have saved that picture for my folder.

  • Nanny M April 29, 2016, 9:52 am

    I’m not a city person either, Sandra, but I think it’s lovely.

  • Jonathan May 2, 2016, 12:51 pm

    This apartment was recently featured in a NYT piece about extremely tiny apartments in New York. It last changed hands for $825,000, so whoever purchased for $625,000 a year ago made a bundle.
