There is a celestial beauty to this great room. Double-height vaulted ceilings adorned with connecting geometric shaped moldings create an overhead constellation. Paired with a skyward wall of street-facing casement windows these two architectural highlights create a dramatic and unforgettable home setting.
The great room (22’9”x16’) also offers a wood burning fireplace flanked by two built-in arched bookcases. Subtle details further enhance the character of the room, including wide archways into the adjoining rooms, tall base moldings and a long wall with multiple depths. An interior balcony protrudes from the upstairs study and looks out onto the great room. And of course, there is an endless stream of sunshine that warms the space.
35 East 9th Street offers a prime Greenwich Village address, ideally situated between University Place and Broadway. And not surprisingly, this refined pre-war co-op is one of the more desirable residential buildings in this part of town. 35 East 9th Street is part of a three building co-op (29, 35 and 45 East 9th Street) that lines the north side of East 9th Street. Each building rises 10 floors; there are about 160 apartments in total.
The buildings at 29-45 East 9th Street opened as rental apartments in 1925 and were designed by famed architect Harvey Wiley Corbett of Helme & Corbett Architects. Corbett was involved in the initial development of Rockefeller Center.
