This charming, quiet, self-contained suite for one person is 100% LEGAL under EXISTING LAW because it is one room in an owner-occupied freestanding townhouse. It is not an apartment building. Your room and bath are the entire 2nd floor of this beautifully restored and decorated 1850s Federalist townhouse in the West Village. (The house has been published in several decor magazines). The room is 15' by 15'. There's a single bed with luxurious linens and European down comforter, a working woodburning fireplace, hundreds of books, a 42 inch TV + VCR.. everything you need to unwind after a busy day in the city. Hotel-standard blackout curtains and white noise machine to ensure a good sleep. Ceiling fan. All tile bath next door is small but has a rainshower head and window overlooking back gardens.

This charming, quiet, self-contained suite for one person is 100% LEGAL under EXISTING LAW because it is one room in an owner-occupied freestanding townhouse. It is not an apartment building.

The room is 15' by 15'. There's a single bed with luxurious linens and European down comforter, a working woodburning fireplace, hundreds of books, a 42 inch TV + VCR.. everything you need to unwind after a busy day in the city. Hotel-standard blackout curtains and white noise machine to ensure a good sleep. Ceiling fan. All tile bath next door is small but has a rainshower head and window overlooking back gardens. The bath has a large mirror at a somewhat inconvenient angle; there is another large mirror in the hallway between bathroom and bedroom, and there is a table top magnifying mirror for shaving or makeup. There is an electric kettle and tea bags but no other cooking facilities.
No one else will enter your room or bathroom. Owner does not entertain guests or use music system while guests are in the house and will be reading or writing if she is there. Owner never uses TV. Guest has access to the suite, but not to the kitchen, laundry or other rooms, and no guests are permitted.
You are welcome to use the house library (2000 books on custom mahogany shelves). However as you will be sharing the house with the owner, at this price you won't be able to use the kitchen, washer or dryer, entertain guests or use the garden. The immediate neighborhood has dozens of coffee shops, bars, and restaurants of every price level and description, as well as two art house cinemas (Film Form and IFC) and a Citibikes bike rental station. It is also near two major subway lines.
This rental will work well for quiet, self-contained visitors who are primarily looking for a quiet, peaceful place to sleep while visiting NYC. It is not suitable for more than one guest. Due to the stairs it is not suitable for infirm or disabled persons. There are two cats in the house but they won't enter your room (they can't open the door).
Guest has access to the floor with the suite. Guest does not have access to the kitchen, washer or dryer or gardens or other floors or bathroom or bedroom. This listing will work best for a self-contained individual who plans to spend most of her or his time exploring the city or visiting friends or working.
Host is in the house daytimes (works from home on computer) and will answer any questions or explain how features of the suite work. Otherwise, host lives her own life, sees friends in the evenings, etc.
The West Village is a vibrant, fashionable, affluent neighborhood of townhouses and small apartment buildings with some of Manhattan's best dining and shopping. It is near the Hudson River Park and contains several parks including Washington Square Park.
There are two subway stations 5 minutes from the house. There is also a Citibikes station next to one of the subways, at West Fourth Street and Sixth Avenue.
Very quiet location (for New York) as Leroy Street has almost no through traffic and there are no bus routes nearby. Owner does not play music or watch TV and rarely makes phone calls.
