Enjoy spectacular light and iconic views from this rare three-bedroom residence situated on the ninth floor of 170 Second Avenue, a full-service Art Deco co-op building at the corner of 11th Street in the East Village. With 10 windows, this spacious, sun-filled corner home overlooks the landmarked St. Mark's Church to the west and reveals the open city skyline to the north, including extraordinary views of the Empire State, Chrysler and Con Edison buildings.
Enter through a grand central gallery that is the centerpiece of this classic pre-war home. Presently used as an office, this versatile space is large enough to function as a media room, den, study or formal dining area. The expansive, 24-foot long living room overlooks the historic church spire and yard, and showcases this home's impressive pre-war details: original oak flooring, beamed ceilings with exquisite crown moldings and nine-foot ceiling heights. The windowed chef's kitchen features a new renovation with gorgeous ash wood and white lacquer cabinetry by Scavolini, plentiful white Caesarstone countertops, and premium appliances and fixtures by Smeg, LG, KWC and Franke.
The corner master bedroom has three windows, offering north and west views of the church and city skyline. The large windowed bathroom boasts the original 5.5-foot cast iron soaking tub and a separate shower. The second bedroom is perched above the historic church, and the third bedroom features beautiful French pocket doors and that striking skyline view. A central second full bathroom, abundant closet space, thru-wall air conditioning, and a small laundry room with Bosch Axxis washer and dryer complete this majestic home.
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 including porters, a live-in superintendent and a 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.
