Rarely available triple mint 2 bedroom, two bath at 2 Horatio Street, one of the village's most coveted Bing & Bing buildings. Gracious, oversized and pristine, this is the best two bedroom in the West Village. Gut renovated in 2016, apartment 3G has the perfect modern layout and charming provenance as the former home of author and neurologist Dr. Oliver Sacks.
A grand entry foyer opens to a gracious living room anchored by a wood burning fireplace with a custom marble mantel and elegant built in bookshelves. The living room with its high ceilings is stately and big enough for living and dining, perfect for a quiet evening or entertaining with friends.
To the left, a large corner kitchen has been designed for optimal form and function. A white farmhouse sink is flanked by gorgeous cashmere Carrera quartz counters, custom white cabinetry, a crisp subway tile backsplash and rich, warm espresso cork floors. In addition to the ample counter space and storage, there is also a walk-in pantry. The kitchen boasts the best appliances from a 6-burner Wolf range, a Wolf microwave/convection oven and a Subzero refrigerator. This kitchen is bright and sunny with two oversized windows with easterly townhouse views and open views north over the treetops of Jackson Square Park.

The windowed ensuite bath has a large European glass shower, fantastic storage and overlooks the Park with its glorious foliage.
