Located on a quiet residential enclave of Saint Mark's Place between First Avenue and Tompkins Square Park, this one-bedroom, two-bathroom duplex with guest room presents a rare opportunity to own a coveted Parlor level residence in the heart of the East Village.
Inside Parlor-1B, pre-war character and volume is on full display. The grand living room which features soaring 12-foot ceilings, centers on a fireplace wrapped by an exposed brick wall. Built-in shelving flanking the fireplace further accentuates the Parlor's grand proportions. During the day, natural light drenches the home through colossal 9-foot, south-facing windows. At night, recessed and track lighting overhead illuminate this dramatic space. A sleeping loft off the Living Room can alternatively be used for storage. Also on this floor, a full bathroom is tucked away by the entry.
Adjacent to the living room is a big, sunny eat-in kitchen with custom painted cabinetry, a crisp white subway-tiled backsplash, black granite countertops, two oversized 7-foot windows, and a full suite of appliances including a dishwasher.
Down the stairs a large master bedroom boasts customized elements including an entire wall of closets and a built-in headboard. Another fireplace is flanked by an exposed brick wall. The luxurious en-suite master bathroom is clad in soapstone and features Kohler fixtures, a Jacuzzi tub, marble vanity and wood shelving. Around the corner from the bedroom is a windowed guest room (presently used as a nursery), that could also be converted to a home office, study or phenomenal walk-in closet.
Hardwood wide plank oak flooring and through-wall air conditioning can be found throughout both floors of this lovely duplex home.
87 Saint Marks Place is a boutique pre-war co-op by First Avenue. Two sweeping staircases lead to the elevated entrance flanked by two lanterns. The building has a central laundry room and basement storage space for all shareholders is included.
