Multiple private outdoor spaces, a wood-burning fireplace, and spectacular city views make this renovated triplex penthouse a NYC unicorn that is ideal for entertaining, while a brand new 3-zone AC and heating system, a washer-dryer, and a sunny bedroom suite with a walk-in closet provide the ultimate in private, at-home comfort. It's the best of designer modern style coupled with unique pre-war architecture in the heart of the vibrant East Village.
Enter on the 6th floor into the great room, anchored by an open kitchen with Miele and subzero appliances and a breakfast bar, looking out into the sunny living room and balcony beyond with views of a 19th Century Church, the city to the East, and gardens below. There are wide-plank oak floors, fireside dining and seating areas, a chic guest powder room, and an elegantly concealed murphy bed if your guests stay a little longer...
A secret door covered in street art by a local artist opens to reveal the spiral staircase that leads down to the king-sized bedroom suite, with a walk-in closet almost big enough to be a room in its own right. There is a glassed-in modern bathroom with double sinks, a soaking tub, a private toilet closet, and a washer-dryer closet. You can also take the elevator to the 5th floor and enter directly into the bedroom level.
Take the staircase up to the magical third-level solarium lounge with 12-foot greenhouse-style curved ceilings, a towering built-in bar, and a setup for the ultimate movie night. This level could also function as a guest bedroom, providing civilized distance between the two sleeping spaces for extra privacy.
The solarium opens out onto the huge private roof terrace perfect for dining and lounging. This epic outdoor space is strung with edison lights and greenery, with views into the clocktower of the beautiful adjacent church, the village below, and sightlines to midtown and the Manhattan skyline at night. The grill is included, so your guests may never want to leave, and thankfully you have three floors to accommodate them.
The Hearth House is a prime 16-unit elevator condop between 3rd and 4th streets surrounded with some of Manhattan’s most revered restaurants, playgrounds, community gardens, boutiques, and supermarkets, including one next door, in addition to the gourmet Union Market a quick 2 blocks away, and an equinox 4 minutes by foot. It takes less than 5 minutes to access the F train to the west, the Lower East Side to the South, and Tompkins Square Park to the North. New developments and other local additions continue to enrich the neighborhood, and here you have your own oasis above it all. Pets, pied-à-terre, and subletting allowed. Available fully furnished upon request.
