This utterly charming “penthouse” on the third/top floor of a pale mint green townhouse at 262 East 7th Street has the good fortune of being on one of the neighborhood’s most beloved blocks. This particular corner of Alphabet City–across from the Gaudi-esque Flowerbox Building condo and home to a landmarked row of rare historic townhomes–is one those New York City secrets hidden in plain sight. Asking $1.35 million, this two-bedroom co-op doesn’t skimp on modern style or comfort. And there’s the added bonus of a lovely private terrace.

The third-floor walk-up features a light-filled, open living area with high ceilings and a decorative whitewashed brick fireplace. The home’s current owners have installed an oversized remote projection screen above the fireplace for movie/TV nights.

The open-plan kitchen has top-quality finishes, casual, loft-like charm and plenty of storage space. A built-in banquette serves as dining area, and there’s plenty of room for more. There’s a home office space tucked in off the living room.

The rare Manhattan terrace is as charming as the rest of the apartment, with brick pavers, plantings and seating for a small crowd.

The apartment has clearly benefitted from the ideas of a skilled architect; while the surprisingly spacious bedrooms are a charming study in exposed and painted brick and sunny corners, space was carved out for both a master ensuite and guest bath along with plenty of built-in and hidden storage.

Monthly co-op fees are a surprisingly low $479, and there’s free laundry in the basement.
