This large prewar two bedroom, one bath residence is located at 170 Second Avenue, a striking Art Deco full-service cooperative building at the corner of Eleventh Street. The tasteful north and east facing corner home has lovely light, and most rooms look onto a charming tree-lined block dappled with small boutiques.
The grand entry foyer/gallery with large coat closet leads to an expansive living room, which is the centerpiece of this majestic, comfortable home. French doors separate the space from the eat-in kitchen, which is decorated with granite countertops and tiled backsplash and features an open windowed dining area, currently being used as a bright home office.
The spacious corner bedroom overlooks the treetops of Eleventh Street and is outfitted with an extra deep closet. A large second bedroom, complete with two closets, faces the back and provides a quiet, peaceful retreat. Conveniently located between the two bedrooms is a windowed, tiled bathroom furnished with a partially enclosed bathtub.
High beamed ceilings and exquisite moldings throughout are emblematic of the original details from the historic 1929 building that have been thoughtfully maintained in this home.
170 Second Avenue has a beautiful lobby with 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.
