Located just a few steps off the Bowery, this five-story home at 4 East 2nd Street in the East Village, currently functioning as four separate units, offers a multitude of options. Looking to stretch out and have nearly 6,000 square feet all to yourself? Go right ahead, as the house will be delivered vacant and is ready for your personal touch. Or perhaps you’d prefer to keep the parlor floor as a gallery space and make do with the remaining few thousand square feet to accommodate your humble abode. The possibilities are only limited by your imagination.

Speaking of imagination, we’ve had a lot of fun checking out the super creative design choices of one of the current inhabitants. Either this home is filled to the brim with kids–or the adults are truly young at heart. Tucked within the beautifully preserved exposed beams, whitewashed brick walls and wide plank floors (which make an appearance on virtually every floor) one of the units cheerfully incorporates brightly colored elements and whimsical furnishings everywhere you turn.

The eat-in kitchen’s red-tiled backsplash, farmhouse sink, and vintage-looking cabinets and fixtures deliciously exude old-time charm, yet it still delivers every modern convenience with gorgeous stainless steel appliances.

Another unit features a more understated eat-in kitchen sitting beneath pink painted rafters and overlooking a spacious living area accessed via a spiral stair. The lower level space impresses with its double-height ceiling but remains cozy enough courtesy of a gorgeous natural stone wall and brick fireplace.

We love the glass-enclosed tub, green “fish-scale” wall tile, green-and-white basket weave floor tile, and frosted glass-paneled wall featured in one of the bathrooms, and working from home would be a pleasure in the large and open office space which features a wooden wall.  When work is done just meander on up to the lovely outdoor roof-deck and feel the day’s stresses melt away.

With five stories plus a beautifully excavated lower level, this building offers its new owners a wealth of potential either as an enormous single-family home or a smaller residence with a number of different rental income opportunities.
