The kitchen is the star in this sumptuous West Village rental

Located on a quiet side street in the West Village, this two-bedroom rental comes with a hefty price tag—it's listed by Compass for $12,000 per month—but offers lovely details and generous square footage in return. Two large terraces on the north and south sides of the unit expand its footprint considerably, and make outdoor entertaining easy. And experienced cooks will be drawn to the bright, elegant kitchen with its attractive new fixtures and ample storage.

The open living and dining area features new hardwood floors and large, south-facing windows; the space flows into the kitchen, where a talented cook can showcase his or her talents. The new appliances include a six-burner stove and a Bosch dishwasher; there's also a breakfast bar, custom cabinetry, updated fixtures, and plenty of surface area for serving and preparing food. Plus, the kitchen opens onto one of the two terraces, making it easy to host an outdoor dinner party. 

The master bedroom gets abundant natural sunlight, thanks to its placement between the two terraces, and comes with three large closets as well as an en-suite bath. That bathroom is also a highlight of the unit, featuring distinctive tile work and a deep whirlpool tub with its own view onto the terrace.

The second bedroom, which overlooks one of the terraces and comes with built-in shelving, looks similarly sophisticated and spacious. Both decks, which together total about 850 square feet—practically the size of another apartment—are enviable spots for sunbathing and dining. 

The building amenities include the services of a full-time doorman and live-in super; for more outdoor space, there's a front garden, and Hudson River Park and Washington Square Park aren't far away.
