There’s nothing quite like starting the week in New York City, especially when you can wake up to the East Village charm found at 217 East 5th Street. Tucked away on a tree-lined street in this historic neighborhood, you can enjoy a serene and sunlight-filled morning on the townhouse’s beautiful rooftop terrace. Should the office be your destination this morning, 217 East 5th Street is only a few minutes from the convenience of Union Square’s subway lines. But why leave? Everything you need to have the perfect New York City day is right here at this truly special single-family carriage house.
Private outdoor space is abundant at 217 East 5th Street thanks to a lovely private courtyard and rooftop terrace. The five floors of indoor space and oversized living room additionally offer plenty of room to work from home should you wish to do so. For those who enjoy a petit déjeuner at home, the chef kitchen at 217 East 5th Street features a Sub-Zero refrigerator, Viking oven and an abundance of counter and storage space. Alternatively, with so many small cafes and coffee shops in East Village, don’t hesitate to step out for a coffee. La Colombe on Lafayette Street offers a plethora of coffee and espresso options while at The Smile only a few blocks away on Bond Street boasts a delicious scrambled eggs dish, biscuits and other pastries in addition to coffee. The typically sleepy cafe on this cobblestone block in NoHo offers respite from tourists too so you can bring your laptop and grab a table for a change of pace while working from home.
