Scale to the top of the historic brick townhouse at 111 East 10th Street in the East Village and you’ll find this charming one-bedroom co-op now on the market for $875,000. The walk-up may not be great, but there are lots of benefits of living on the top floor here. The ceiling has been heightened and expanded to include a row of skylights, and there’s direct access to a private rooftop garden. The unit is part of a unique, coveted cooperative comprised of six 19th century townhouses that sit within the landmarked St. Mark’s Historic District, holding 29 residences total.
The dramatic living room is decked out with 14-foot beamed ceilings, as light flows through a row of atelier skylights that were recently added in a renovation. Such new additions complement the pre-war details that were restored, like the mahogany windows that overlook the co-op’s common garden. This space is finished in exposed brick, original wide plank floors, and a marble mantelpiece.
The living room also holds a breakfast bar, which leads to an alcove kitchen, and a spot for a washer/dryer unit.
Two French doors separate the living room from the bedroom, which has one window and the same ceiling beams and wide plank floors found throughout the apartment. A large closet is located just outside the bedroom, adjacent to the kitchen.
One more flight up and you’re at the private rooftop terrace, finished with an automatic watering and lighting system. The mix of plants and evergreen trees that fill the space also make sure it stays lush year-round. And of course, the views from here are of the charming East Village streets below, as well as the historic buildings making up the St. Mark’s Historic District.
