Sure this East Village pad is cute–what with its exposed brick walls, reclaimed wood accents, pressed tin ceilings, and boho-chic kitchen–but what really sets it apart is its location at 307 East 12th Street, a landmarked Victorian Gothic/Flemish Revival structure designed in 1892 by the firm of Calvert Vaux, who co-designed Central and Prospect Parks. Built for the Children’s Aid Society as a home and job-training center for abused young women, it was converted to co-ops in 1983, and today its lofty apartments boast high ceilings, double-height historic windows, and plenty of pre-war charm. This one-bedroom unit underwent a gut renovation last year and is now asking $879,000.
The main living space boasts seven massive windows, hardwood floors, and room for both seating and dining areas.
The kitchen has stainless steel appliances, including a dishwasher, a deep ceramic farmhouse sink that overlooks the building’s courtyard, Ceaserstone poured concrete counters, reclaimed wood beam shelves, and schoolhouse pendant lights. The country-rustic look is completed by baby blue cabinetry, a pressed tin ceiling, slate floors, and a white subway tile backsplash.
Behind a 10-foot reclaimed, hardwood townhouse door is the updated bathroom, which also features tin ceilings, slate floors, and white subway tile.
The spacious bedroom easily fits a king-sized bed, in addition to a customized closet and even more south-facing windows. Other perks include an in-unit washer/dryer, large basement storage space, and low monthly maintenance of $800.
