This penthouse at 50 Avenue A is just under $2 million, and it has a lot going for it for that price. To start, the two-bedroom layout is split among three floors, which includes a living room terrace, a solarium, and a roof deck overlooking the low-scale neighborhood. The interiors are the perfect mix of modern finishes and artsy touches, all with cool views of the historic Church of the Most Holy Redeemer around the corner.

The main living spaces are on the middle level of the triplex, on the building’s sixth floor. There are wide-plank oak floors, a wood-burning fireplace, an elegantly concealed murphy bed (behind the gray wall panel), and a roughly 100-square-foot terrace that runs almost the entire length of the room. The kitchen anchors the space and has Miele and Subzero appliances, as well as a breakfast bar. A secret door covered in street art by a local artist opens to reveal the spiral staircase that leads to the lower and upper levels.

The lower floor is entirely devoted to the primary bedroom suite. One whole wall is taken up by the walk-in closet, which is a huge 85 square feet. At the other end of the room is a glassed-in bathroom with double sinks, a soaking tub, toilet closet, and a washer/dryer. The building elevator stops on this floor, too, so you could enter directly.

And on the upper level, the solarium has 12-foot curved glass ceilings and can be used as a den or guest bedroom. It’s currently configured as the former, complete with “a towering built-in bar and a setup for the ultimate movie night,” according to the listing. It opens onto the roof terrace, which is strung with Edison lights and greenery, with views into the clocktower of the adjacent church, the neighborhood below, and sightlines to midtown and the Manhattan skyline at night. Bonus: the grill is included.

The 16-unit condop building is known as Hearth House. It’s located between East 3rd and 4th Streets, just a few blocks south of Tompkins Square Park and not far from the F train at 2nd Avenue. A Key Foods grocery store is right next door and neighborhood favorites like Supper, Lil’ Frankie’s, and Katz’s are all within a few blocks. Pets, pied-à-terre, and subletting are allowed.
