Who would’ve thought there was a backyard like this hiding in Alphabet City? Built in the 1880s, this historic $7.25 million townhouse at 263 East 7th Street was masterfully redesigned by one of the architects behind the DIA Beacon Museum, and it comes with two layouts. The current floorplan is an owner’s duplex, an income suite, and separate guest quarters. Option two is one giant, 4,900-square-foot single-family home with 2,400 square feet of exterior space. Plus, it’s located on one of the most charming blocks in the neighborhood.

We’ll start by saying this home is a stickler for fairness. Every level has a terrace so there’s no jealousy, and each outdoor space is pretty phenomenal. Yes, that’s a trampoline in the rear garden, but if that isn’t impressive enough, there’s an outdoor shower for the pinnacle of luxury. The loft-like parlor floor has a large deck accessed by custom sliding glass doors. There’s also a loggia on the third floor, another deck on the fourth, and a full-on roof deck to top it all off.

263 East 7th Street also has a skylight over the soaking tub on the garden level and three skylights on the third level. Other features include whitewashed exposed brick, original wide plank oak floors, beamed cathedral ceilings, and wood-burning fireplaces with modern polished concrete and ebonized oak and cedar. Bonus: it’s right next door to the Flowerbox Building.
