This flawless East Village two-bedroom home blends historic details from the c.1900 prewar building with thoughtful upgrades and expansion via purchase of connective building hallway space. Apartment 13/14 features an open concept living space with lovely light from four large northern- and rear--facing windows in the living room. Exposed brick and wide-plank pickled white oak hardwood floors give the space a loft-like feel. The kitchen is outfitted with stone countertops, a Bertazzoni range and a Bosch dishwasher and refrigerator. The combination of one-of-a-kind tiles from Exquisite Surfaces with the original brick and wood beams in the bathroom create a zen space unlike any other. Recessed lighting, a washer and dryer and thoughtful storage throughout complete this carefully designed home. This apartment is also wired for private security, should that be desired (the seller never felt the need to use it). This lovingly maintained building does not have an elevator; however the caliber of this special home is well worth the three flights.
This pre-war cooperative is centrally located between First and Second Avenues, just blocks from the Lower East Side, Noho, Nolita, Greenwich Village and Soho, with multiple transportation lines nearby (B,D,F,M,6,M15). The building has a lovely shared roof deck with views of downtown and the Freedom Tower, as well as northern views of Midtown and the Empire State Building. There are storage cages in the basement for each apartment, as well as a shared garden space and bicycle storage. The building is self-managed but is meticulously well kept, which can be evidenced by the restored facade and entry way. Recent upgrades include a new marble staircase, renovated hallways, updated windows and a restoration of the original lobby flooring. Please note there is a 2% flip tax.
