From beats like Allen Ginsberg to ’80s artists like Keith Haring, the East Village was once home to the city’s hippest New York icons (and, some may argue, still is). But since its heyday, the neighborhood has become an extremely sought after part of the city, and this East Village pad that was recently put on the market is fully stacked in the hipness department. The four-bedroom unit is located at 211 East 2nd Street and is currently listed for $2,695,000. From the Carriage House condominium’s unique exterior to the edgy, rustic interior, this home is sure to make you the coolest kid on the block.
Throughout the home, exposed brick walls paired with wide-plank hardwood floors create a warm ambiance, and the spaces’s raw feel is further accentuated with a rustic wood beam ceiling and exposed metal pipes.
The open living room flows seamlessly into the cheerful kitchen that includes a convenient bar and ample counter space. The space also has a very chic wine cooler.
The master bedroom’s whitewashed brick walls soften the look and feel of the space, and the light wood headboard gives the room a more Eastern Zen-like vibe, perfect for promoting sleep and relaxation.
Even the home’s exterior is something the kids are talking about; a cool mint green garage door sits below expansive windows and funky black terraces. Needless to say, this pad could make even the nerdiest of nerds look like James Dean (even though we think nerds are cool). So if you’re in the market for some new digs that can also help with your rep, look no further.
