A condo that maintains original elements but manages to look brand new is not an easy task, but this two-bedroom home in the East Village does just that. Located on the parlor floor of a Greek Revival townhouse that was built in 1900, the apartment boasts original details like crown moldings, baseboards, and medallions, while keeping things modern with top-of-the-line appliances, heating and cooling systems, and stunning built-ins. The condo at 219 East 12th Street is now available for $3,495,000.

Measuring roughly 1,750 square feet, the apartment has plenty of space for a flexible layout. Currently, the primary suite and main living area are separated by a spacious formal dining room, which flaunts an impressive built-in shelving unit.

The hardwood floors, soaring ceilings, and functional wood-burning fireplace complete the living room.

According to the listing, architect Drew McGukin designed and renovated the space, achieving his “goal of creating a modern and luxurious home while respecting its extensive historical details.”

The bright chef’s kitchen features custom cabinetry and marble countertops, along with a large island that can double as a breakfast bar. Appliances include a Viking professional oven and wine fridge and a Bosch dishwasher.

Also on this end of the apartment is the second bedroom, which overlooks the building’s rear gardens. The bedroom has an en-suite bath and three closets.

The primary suite has dramatic French windows, oak flooring, a beautiful decorative ceiling, and a working wood-burning fireplace. A windowed en-suite bath decked out with marble has a freestanding bathtub, separate shower, and Waterworks double sinks.

Originally constructed in 1900, the 25-foot-wide townhouse was converted in the 1980s and hosts just five units. Common storage is provided for owners. Located between Second and Third Avenues, the property is just a few blocks from both Union Square and Washington Square Park and all of the unique dining, shopping, and nightlife destinations in between.
