On a charming cobblestone lane in the West Village adjacent to Hudson River Park there is a magical co-op of twelve “houses," six on Charles Lane and six on Charles Street. 8A Charles Lane is the first house on the left as you walk down Charles Lane toward the river. As the end/corner unit, it’s a unique and special property giving you the advantages and privacy of your own townhouse while enjoying the benefits of a professionally managed coop. Open the gate and walk through a landscaped front patio with gorgeous rhododendrons and a grapevine of Niagara grapes from which the owners have made the most delicious jelly for yearly gifts to friends. Have a meal or take a work call on the patio and enjoy the peaceful lane which seems an extension of your home. Huge stylish metal and glass windows open from the living room onto the front of the home melding the outdoors with the inside of the home. Because of the high ceilings, multi levels and skylights, the approximately 1350 interior square feet provide the separation of space and privacy of a much larger residence. There are two bedrooms plus a den, a large open chef’s kitchen on its own level, two lovely baths – one with a jacuzzi and a rain shower--a large balcony running the width of the master bedroom, a washer/dryer, central air conditioning and excellent storage space throughout.
