This renovated prewar two-bedroom residence in the heart of the Village features seven large windows with lovely city views to the east and west. Located at Eleventh Street and Second Avenue overlooking historic landmarked St. Mark's Church, 170 Second Avenue is the East Village's preeminent co-op.
This refined home is a modern classic. The most recent renovation respects the character of the historic 1929 building while bringing it completely up-to-date by replacing plumbing and electricity, and selecting new finishes and fixtures. A large entry foyer outfitted with a double-deep coat closet leads to an expansive great room. The living space offers an ideal entertainment venue, complete with a ceiling mounted Panasonic projector and retractable screen. The open chef's kitchen is lined with granite countertops and equipped with a vented Viking range, Sub-Zero refrigerator and Bosch dishwasher.
A set of beautiful sliding glass doors separates the living room from a large bedroom, making it a flexible den space/extension of the living room if desired. The original hinged door was retained, and this room also features two windows with bright eastern views. The master bedroom, currently used as a nursery, boasts an extra-large closet and additional built-ins, offering ample storage space, and overlooks the picturesque landmarked St. Mark's Church. At the end of the hall is a luxurious windowed bathroom, finished with honed Beauharnais limestone walls and floors and a separate rain shower and bathtub.
Additional highlights include beamed, nine-foot ceilings throughout, base and crown moldings, new Elfa System closets and thru-wall air conditioners.
170 Second Avenue features a beautiful lobby with original terrazzo floors, brass chandeliers, Art Deco murals and a mahogany-paneled elevator. It is impeccably maintained by a wonderful full-time staff, comprised of porters, a live-in superintendent and 24-hour elevator attendant. Amenities include central laundry, storage and bike rooms. It is located near fantastic restaurants, Union Square, Astor Place, Tompkins Square Park and public transportation.
Note: Please see alternate floor plan attached, showing two full bathrooms, washer/dryer in residence and a solid wall separating the second bedroom from the living room. This renovation is subject to co-op board approval.
