Beautiful renovated and spacious two bedroom, convertible three or home office, two bath floor through apartment at the legendary Lancaster, an early New York City apartment building designed by James Renwick Jr. (Grace Church, St Patricks Cathedral, The Smithsonian) Situated on one of the most beautiful blocks in Greenwich Village, this apartment opens onto a graceful parlor and dining area overlooking East 10th Street. Ten foot high ceilings, two beautiful chandeliers, pristine original wood floors and a wood burning fireplace adds to the comfort and elegance of the room.
An archway of exposed brick leads to a graceful hallway where the master bedroom, second bedroom and guest bathroom are located. Both bedrooms are quiet with balanced proportions and ample closet space. The master bedroom features a beautiful tiled en suite bathroom with an extra deep soaking tub. The gleaming guest bathroom features a beautiful tiled and green glass shower. The back of the apartment features an expansive family room with an original marble mantel wood burning fireplace and a large bright windowed open kitchen. A beautiful custom built banquette is just off to the side of the kitchen. The spacious kitchen features gleaming stainless steel top of the line appliances including a Wolf range and vented hood, a Sub Zero refrigerator and extra quiet Kitchen Aid dishwasher. A stainless steel LG washer and vented gas dryer are discretely located off to the side of the kitchen. A windowed bonus room off the family room can be used as a third bedroom or home office.
The apartment features two Midea ductless split system air conditioners which are very quiet and efficient. The unit also comes with a large seven feet by nine feet storage cage with a ten foot ceiling located in the basement. Trivia alert- this apartment was once the home of legendary jazz bassist Charles Mingus.
The Lancaster is a beautiful boutique coop with just two units per floor and only ten units in total. Pets are welcome. Easy stroll to Washington Square and Union Square, close to Whole Foods, Trader Joes and many subway lines. A truly rare offering in a historic Greenwich Village setting.
