Live in the heart of the historic 7 blocks in Greenwich Village known as the gold coast. The magical view from the living room and master bedroom of this 1929 Classic Five is full west overlooking Lower Fifth Avenue. The Spire of the gorgeous gothic revival First Presbyterian Church, built in 1846, is silhouetted against an open sky towering over tall mature trees and open lawns.
Apartment 4 A has been in the same family for over 50 years, is in near original condition, and will need to be renovated. The current configuration is two spacious bedrooms, a formal dining room, galley kitchen, living room, two full baths, and plumbing in the kitchen for a half bath or possibly a laundry room. The building does allow washer/dryers, an unexpected bonus in an early 20th Century Coop. To complete the very pretty picture - the living room has a wood-burning fireplace. There is a gracious entry gallery. Bring your architect. This home would be wonderful renovated in its exiting classic layout, or reimagined to suit you for its second century on this timeless corner of New York at Fifth Avenue and East 12th Street.
51 Fifth Avenue is an exceptionally well-run Coop with a lovely lobby, newly renovated gym, 24 hour doorman, live-in superintendent, basement storage lockers and bike storage. Pied-a-terres, co-purchasing and gifting are allowed on a case by case basis. Pets are welcome. Look no further. This is the one.
