Authentic and charming Prewar apartment on one of the best tree-lined blocks in the East Village - East 5th Street between Second and Third Avenues, now officially designated within a City historic district! This is a brownstone floor-through with an abundance of character, exposed brick, two decorative fireplaces and natural hardwood floors. Two short flights' walk up, the living room has a sunny Southern exposure, while the bedroom with exposed brick faces North to a tranquil courtyard. The renovated eat-in kitchen is super-stylish and functional, with a dishwasher, microwave and new floor. The completely redone windowed bathroom boasts a large shower stall and good storage. And there is even a bonus room - a den that could be used as a second bedroom (as it had recently been configured) or home office.
Other hallmarks of this special home include two walk-in closets, high ceilings and tons of old school charm. This quiet loft-like apartment feels larger than it is and is a true home, located just off the Bowery, now one of the hippest new corridor of shops, hotels, museums, and all the area's best restaurants and nightlife. Also close to both the East River Esplanade and Union Square, as well as the N/R, B/D/F/M and 6 trains. Even better, this flexible and reasonable condop board allows co-purchasing as well as unlimited subletting with board approval after just one year of ownership. Pet-friendly and with solid financials and low maintenance it is hard to find a better overall package of location, charm and move-in-readiness for the price! Also available for rent at $3,500 per month.
