Design is fused with prewar charm as this customized tenement loft half-floor with three exposures has been appointed with love and class.
The only two bed available of this quality at this price range, the second bedroom has recently installed barn doors which make it a spacious den with very bright windows facing East. This home is well designed and the rooms are comfortably sized. The eat-in-kitchen has a sitting area that can also work well with a home-office. The appliances are stainless and the cabinets are cherry wood, with granite countertops.
There are seven windows throughout this pre-war home with well maintained hardwood floors and exquisite exposed brick. The chic furnishings might go with the seller, but the light fixtures and refinished closets remain. The bathroom is done in marble tile, and the main bedroom is both quiet and has good storage.East Fifth St is home to the 9th Preceinct, and the block is at the southern end of the East Village, so a walk to Whole Foods, the Lower East Side, or all that the East Village itself has to offer is just 5-7 minutes depending on which way you are headed.
This home is not for everyone, its a top floor walk-up. For those of you who don't mind that and see the value, you will find a beautiful and bright property that is turn-key. The building has frontage on First Avenue as well, and the board has worked together in the past years to provide lots of reforms that are both financial and functional, like keyless entry. With 20 individual units, this pre-war coop is unique in that it is much larger than similar types of buildings. As such they maintain an excellent and stable cost of ownership to the shareholders.
