This tiny trinity is located on a gated courtyard in Washington Square West that might fool you into thinking you’ve landed in a Mediterranean village by accident. The narrow lane, brightly colored stucco exterior and very intimate interior all reinforce this feeling. If you don’t mind living in extremely close quarters (because your neighbors are literally feet away), this cozy pad could be yours.

The galley kitchen on the main floor features a Carrara marble countertop, a modern gas range and oven, a space-saving under-the-counter refrigerator/freezer, decent pantry space, and hardwood flooring. There is room for an eating area on this level, too, so spice up the space with a cute little breakfast table.

The second level is home to a private bedroom (it has a door and everything), and a renovated bathroom with a full tub. The whole third level is occupied by an additional bedroom, which would most likely serve as the master bedroom and features a brick fireplace, hardwood floors, and a wood beamed ceiling. However, it could also serve as a living room, family room, or office space depending on your individual needs. Laundry and mechanicals are located in the basement.

This residence puts a colorful spin on the traditional trinity house. We’ve said it already and we’ll say it again: it’s definitely not for everyone. But if it catches your attention and you can manage the lack of space, by all means, check this place out.
