Residence 5D is a large, pre-war two-bedroom, one-bath residence located at 170 Second Avenue, a striking Art Deco full-service cooperative building at the corner of Eleventh Street in the East Village. This spacious north and east facing corner home boasts Empire State Building and ConEd Clocktower views, lovely light, original parquet oak flooring, and built-in cabinetry throughout. High beamed ceilings are emblematic of the original details from this historic 1929 building.
The grand entry foyer/gallery leads to an expansive living room, which is the centerpiece of this majestic, comfortable home. This 25'x13' room has views over a lovely tree lined block of 11th street and looks north to the skyline and its iconic buildings. Both the living room and the foyer open into the updated windowed kitchen, which features granite countertops with ceramic tile backsplash, GE appliances, and those same pretty views.
The spacious corner bedroom overlooks the treetops of Eleventh Street and the large second bedroom faces the back which provides a quiet, peaceful retreat. Conveniently located between the two bedrooms is a windowed, black and white tiled bathroom with the original reglazed 5.5' cast iron soaking tub and a large separate shower.
170 Second Avenue is a majestic prewar jewel. It features a beautiful lobby with terrazzo floors, brass chandeliers, Art Deco murals and a mahogany-paneled elevator and is impeccably maintained by a wonderful full-time staff, including a live-in superintendent, porters, 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.
