Greenwich Village has changed quite a bit since the stately six-story luxury mid-rise known today as The Villager was built back in 1902. The Villager, too, has been through many incarnations during that century-plus in Greenwich village: it was the famed restaurant Charles restaurant in the 1940s, was converted from offices to rental apartments in 1981, and given a luxurious top-to-bottom renovation in 1995. Still, the timeless elegance of its pre-war rental apartments, prime location and unique suite of building services ensure that The Villager has remained one of the finest no-fee rentals in the West Village.
The Villager has an undeniably ideal downtown location. A host of nearby mass transit options -- The Villager is a short walk to several subway lines -- puts all of New York City within reach. The surrounding streets also include some of the loveliest pre-war architecture in Manhattan, making every walk around the block an eye-opening experience. Movie theaters, off-broadway shows and live music venues abound just a few blocks in any direction.
The Villager's facade is the most obvious example of its pre-war heritage, but classic touches can be found throughout this elegant building. The Villager's spacious rental apartments feature lovely hardwood floors and oversized, energy-efficient double-pane windows; many of the apartments for rent at The Villager also offer wood-burning fireplaces and exposed brick walls, as well as soaring 13-foot ceilings. The Villager's kitchens and bathrooms were brought up to state-of-the-art through a recent renovation, with state-of-the-art dishwashers, microwaves and new fixtures throughout offering a nice contrast to the elegant pre-war style seen throughout all of the apartments for rent.
The already considerable appeal of The Villager's pre-war rental apartments is further augmented by some very modern luxury amenities. All residents have 24-hour access to the deluxe Brixity Tenant Services and concierge services, as well as an on-site resident manager and video security. With rental apartments rich in pre-war elegance providing a taste of Greenwich Village's past and amenities that put it at the cutting-edge of Manhattan luxury buildings, The Villager bridges old and new with Greenwich Village style. Little wonder, then, that The Villager is one of the most desirable pre-war rental apartment listings in Greenwich Village.
