Looking for a huge, dramatic living space right in the heart of the East Village? It’s right here, at 175 East 2nd Street, but it’ll cost a cool $10,000 a month. This one-bedroom condo now up for rent spans 1,450 square feet and comes with a 1,247-square-foot roof deck. That’s a ton of space, and all of it is dripping in unique, super trendy details: 11-foot ceilings with the original wooden ceiling beams, exposed brick, a fireplace and a long skylight over a renovated kitchen. Chic furniture and artwork fills all the open living space, and the apartment comes with the option to move into it furnished.
You enter into a 40-foot-long living room topped by 11-foot ceilings–dramatic, indeed. The open living space offers more than enough room for both dedicated living and dining areas. Separated by a breakfast bar and long skylight, the kitchen was renovated with upgraded appliances.
Besides the skylights, southern and western exposures flood the living space with light. And materials like brick and wood along the floor, walls and ceilings–not to mention the addition of eclectic artwork–give the apartment a quirky personality.
The brick-lined master bedroom features southern views, a walk-in closet and en-suite master bath. (This bathroom doesn’t have a window, but does have its own skylight.) There’s a second walk-in closet off the second bathroom, in the great room.
Above it all is the sprawling rooftop terrace, offering southern and northern views of the city. With more than a 1,000 square feet up here, it can be customized for entertaining, dining, lounging or gardening.
This brick building, between Avenues A and B, was built in 1920 and converted to residential in 1986. It’s a five-story walkup–no one said getting up to such a cool apartment was going to be a breeze. But for those willing to climb the stairs, they’ll find an impressive design that fills up all available space.
