299 West 12th Street is one of the West Village’s premier pre-war condominiums. Built in 1931, the building was designed by the prolific architect Emery Roth. This 16-story building has its own character and charm, perfect for the neighborhood. The building was converted into residential living in 1986 and is now is home to 187 apartments. While the building mainly features studios and one-bedrooms, over the years combinations have created some two-bedroom and larger apartments. Being a pre-war condominium, prices for units in this building are well above the average for other one-bedrooms in the area, due to the restrictions on new construction in the West Village.
The apartments are well laid out and elegant, with most units featuring high beamed ceilings, hardwood floors, walk-in closets, wood-burning fireplaces and a sunken living rooms. Some apartments also contain terraces with spectacular views. The fully equipped kitchens are perfect for cooking and entertaining. They also contain beautifully designed wood cabinetry and state-of-the-art stainless steel appliances including brands such as Miele, Bosch and Sub-Zero. The sleek, marble bathrooms contain a soaking tub, shower, mirrored vanities and polished Kohler fixtures.
299 West 12th Street has numerous amenities including a full-time doorman and concierge service. There is also a laundry room, private storage room and bike room. Animal lovers will be glad to know that pets are permitted in the building with approval from the condominium board.
