As 6sqft previously reported, the building that’s home to this four-bedroom East Village duplex condo at 12 Avenue A was at one time a speakeasy and dancehall. In the much less distant past (in 2016), the sprawling apartment was asking $24,500/month rent. While it still boasts a private roof deck, a huge movie screen, surround-sound, and luxury fixtures and finishes, it’s now asking a still-pricey $19,500 per month.
According to the listing, the 3,000-square-foot mezzanine pad has been home to “various celebrities, artists, and rock stars” and is now seeking a rental tenant to enjoy its dramatic spaces and fun location.
Through a townhouse-like entrance, we find a dramatic foyer and grand staircase. A spacious open-plan contemporary kitchen is equipped with top-of-the-line finishes and appliances.
The grand living and entertaining space boast double-height ceilings of almost 20 feet and enormous casement windows that open directly onto a private terrace. Also on the first floor is a bedroom with an en-suite bath that doubles as a home office.
Upstairs are the home’s other three bedrooms, each with an en-suite bath and plenty of closet space. The master suite features a vast walk-in closet and custom French doors that overlook the downstairs entertainment space.
Original tin ceilings and updated wide-plank oak floors provide equal parts old and new. Definitely in the “new” column are modern perks like a 200-inch screen that drops down from the living room ceiling, a separate laundry room, controllable custom lighting, and a surround-sound system.
