6sqft reported last year that “True Blood” star Alexander Skarsgård had viewed the penthouse-in-a-synagogue at 415 East 6th Street in the East Village; now, the New York Post reports that “Orange Is the New Black” star and noted native New Yorker Natasha Lyonne was seen checking out the 2nd floor unit in the unique condominium building, whose still-active congregation Adas Yisroel Anshe Meseritz will meet in a new space with a separate entrance on the first floor. The $1.99 million apartment–one of only three in the building–has plenty of perks like a key-locked private elevator entry behind its carefully-restored 1910 limestone facade with original stained-glass windows and architectural details.
The 1,911-square foot floor-through offers two bedrooms, two-and-a-half baths and a home office. Wide plank oak flooring has been installed throughout;.
State-of-the-art kitchens feature appliances by Liebherr, Bosch, and Bertazzoni and marble countertops and backsplashes.
Bedrooms have corner windows for abundant light. There’s a Bosch washer/dryer and an energy-efficient heating and cooling system.
The building was listed by the Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation as the last operating tenement synagogue in the East Village.
Lyonne, who plays inmate Nicky Nichols on the Netflix series, is slated to star in a new as-yet-untitled Netflix comedy series.
