This East Village rental, at the Pear Tree Place condo at 203 East 13th Street, is rich in prewar material. The 11-and-a-half-foot ceilings are lined with wood beams, the walls are covered with exposed brick and the floor with a maple wood. The three-bedroom pad, on the rental market for $13,995/month, also comes with some perks: a planted terrace off the kitchen, an audio/visual system with two drop-down movie screens, and heated floors in the bathrooms.
As the listing points out, this apartment has gotten a renovation that’s uncommon for NYC rentals. One fancy addition is the open kitchen, which has granite counters and hand-made walnut cabinets, as well as a vented stove, dishwasher and washer/dryer.
A pass-through office and butler’s pantry, outfitted with a wet bar, also doubles as a fourth sleeping area with a custom desk and pullman bed.
The planted terrace, right off the kitchen and dining room, is shaded by a retractable awning and has electricity, gas grill, hot and cold water and limestone pavers.
The apartment gets lot of light from a sunny southern exposure, as well as north and west exposures.
More exposed brick and a decorative fireplace line one of the three bedrooms. (In the living room, there’s a working gas fireplace.)
This condo building is just east of Union Square, off 3rd Avenue. The area, of course, offers everything a New Yorker needs, although the apartment’s pull-down movie screens should make it less appealing to go out at night. Currently, this is the only unit available in the building.
