When interior design couple Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent bought their former Greenwich Village penthouse in 2013, they also picked up this charming one-bedroom at nearby 2 East 12th Street. After carefully styling the space with “a mix of vintage finds and pieces from their current collections,” the duo has just listed the cozy pad for $800,000. For an added price, prospective buyers can choose to purchase the apartment fully furnished—including major bragging rights for living in a quintessential Village home, styled head-to-toe by the celebrity designers.
The thoughtful decor features a palette of black and neutrals against pristine white walls. None of the selected objects detract from the home’s original details, including a marble fireplace and original shutters on the large, south-facing windows. There’s a separate kitchen with custom cabinets and a subway tile backsplash. Though not pictured, french doors lead to the bedroom, which is small but comes with a full wall of built-in storage.
The pre-war building dates back to 1900 and has 10 units. It’s situated right between Fifth Avenue and University Place.
