Tucked away on Rutherford Place, one of the prettiest streets in the neighborhood, this charming first-floor pre-war apartment sits along the eastern border of Gramercy and Union Square. Built in 1855 as a townhouse, the one-bedroom co-op at 224 East 17th Street has a large master bedroom and a small office space–and direct views of Stuyvesant Square Park.
One of the building’s more dramatic features is also one that sets the apartment itself apart: Oversized deco-era casement windows span the length of the home’s living room, which means you get gorgeous protected park views and plenty of light.
A large classic kitchen has been recently renovated with luxurious details like marble backsplashes and plenty of counter space and storage. The kitchen could be also be opened up so it joins the living room, great-room style.
Flexible room options include an office nook and a large master.
Pre-war pluses like hardwood floors, decorative moldings and generous closets and rooms make this just-right Manhattan find all the more dreamy. The building offers a free laundry room, storage and bike storage.
