Here’s a rare opportunity to live in a freestanding home right in the heart of the East Village with this carriage house at 217 East 5th Street. The one-bedroom residence spans over four levels and includes three outdoor spaces that are ready for all your entertaining needs. Fresh off an extensive renovation—the top three levels were stripped to the studs and entirely rebuilt—the rare property seeks $3.49 million.
The entrance is through the five-story pre-war building at 217 East 5th Street, which houses the other nine residences that make up the co-op. You’ll find the door at the back of the ground floor, which leads into a private bluestone courtyard.
Rooms are spread over the levels, with the main floor dedicated to a large living room that’s primed for entertaining with a gas fireplace (there are three throughout the home), a wet bar, a built-in wine fridge, and french doors opening onto the courtyard. A large coat closet and a powder room round out this floor.
Up a spiral staircase, there’s an open chef’s kitchen and dining room on the second floor. The kitchen boasts custom bamboo cabinetry and is equipped with a Sub-Zero refrigerator, Bosch dishwasher, and a wine cooler. Adjacent to the kitchen is a large formal dining room with a sitting area next to another fireplace. French doors lead to a dining terrace, which also connects to the courtyard below via a staircase.
The third level has a full-floor master suite complete with a spacious sitting area, a dressing room with floor-to-ceiling built-in shelves, and a windowed master bathroom finished with blue ceramic subway tiles and basketweave marble floors.
The basement level of the home is fully finished and offers a flexible space that could be used as a den, home office, a guest room, or a second bedroom. The floor also includes a full bathroom, built-in closets, and a dedicated laundry room.
One of the best features of the residence is the expansive rooftop terrace, an oasis that has everything you need to host your next summer party. There’s an outdoor kitchen with a gas grill and sink, a dining area with a covered pergola, and a large furnished lounge area. All of the outdoor spaces have electrical and water hookups and irrigation systems for the landscaping.
