Property Description

This dramatic East Village loft is rich with history and has undergone a meticulous gut renovation with no detail spared. Originally built in 1875 as the rectory for neighboring Holy Cross Church, this fortress-like East Village landmark has been reimagined as a 20-unit boutique coop elevator building with a newly renovated common roof deck. Unit 3B’s original details were carefully and lovingly restored during the renovation, including exposed brick throughout, hardwood oak floors, and soaring 12’+ ceilings. In the living room, four large north facing windows provide excellent natural light throughout the day. A custom black walnut storage bench runs the length of the room, providing built-in seating and storage, painstakingly made with handcrafted walnut slats. Ample storage has been thoughtfully placed throughout the apartment, including a storage loft accessed by a solid walnut Putnam Co. rolling ladder, wine storage, and closets complete with custom Japanese shoji screen doors. The kitchen has been masterfully designed, employing the work of local artisans. Custom kitchen cabinets were locally crafted in Brooklyn with salvaged butternut wood and vintage chicken wire glass. The row of kitchen pantry cabinets are constructed of custom burnished steel designed by Brooklyn based artisanal metalworkers. High-end appliances include a Viking range, Liebherr refrigerator and Bosch dishwasher. An authentic Italian Murano glass chandelier hangs over the custom island made of reclaimed NYC red cedar water tank wood topped with hickory wood. Entering through a beautiful original brick archway, the bedroom features a custom metal sliding barn door, floor to ceiling custom closets and storage with ladder, and a pointed arch window with custom fitted wooden shutter. The bathroom features an extra deep soaking tub, custom millwork, and exposed wood beams. Located in the heart of the East Village, the apartment faces the “Secret Garden” community garden, all but ensuring protected open, green views from all exposures. A downtown Manhattan dream.

East Village | Manhattan

Quick Profile

The East Village has two distinct moods. By day, it is quiet and peaceful. Everyone is out and about, either working or relaxing at Tompkins Square Park, strolling or jogging along the East River, or hanging out in one of the subsets of cultural activity, such as St. Mark’s Place. 

But then night falls, and the East Village comes to life, keeping the entertainment and nightlife going long after the other neighborhoods have called it quits for the night. People from all five boroughs flock to the dive bars and speakeasies, head for their favorite cafes and restaurants, or drop in to a music venue to listen to hot tunes or cool jazz and dance the night away. Don’t worry, you don’t have to “know somebody” to gain admittance to even the most popular venues. You won’t find velvet ropes, bouncers, or and a waiting list at the door of most places. Just walk right in and enjoy yourself.

Be prepared for the increased population during fall through spring, when NYU is in session. College students will be everywhere, contributing to the youthful essense of the neighborhood.
