On the market for the first time in 36 years, this three-bedroom co-op at 53 Saint Marks Place just hit the market for $1,100,000. Located in the heart of the East Village, the spacious 1,250-square-foot unit boasts plenty of tasteful improvements and comes with lots of storage solutions for book lovers and their collection.

The apartment is a floor-through unit with a south-facing living room on one end and a north-facing kitchen and dining room on the other. The kitchen features wood cabinetry and plenty of built-in shelving to cover all your storage needs, while a separate dining area will cover your entertaining needs. Adjacent to the kitchen is also a small laundry area decked out with a Bosch washer and dryer.

Bridging the living and dining areas is a custom wood paneled, built-out space that houses the master bedroom and an office space/den. Frosted windows and sliding doors allow light in while maintaining a sense of privacy and making the most of the railroad layout. There’s an additional small bedroom tucked next to the living room, currently painted a vibrant red, that is perfect for a twin bed.

The building is a quaint five-unit, self-managed walk-up. It’s known to be “pin-drop quiet” in an otherwise bustling neighborhood, so you can enjoy everything the East Village has to offer without sacrificing your sanity.

Editor’s Note: An earlier version of this post incorrectly reported that this apartment was owned by art critic Peter Schjeldahl. 6sqft regrets the error.
