In the heart of it all at 50 Avenue A, this fully-furnished sublet is a walk-up on the third floor of a building known as Hearth House. Built in 1929, its quirky architecture fits right in with mid-century gems like the Burger Klein building just up the street; the building’s terraces add a rare and fun way to survey the neighborhood from above. Unlike many East Village apartments, this one has two real bedrooms, two full baths and plenty of room for living.
A convenient entry hall offers a washer-dryer; next is a renovated open kitchen framed by rustic wood ceiling beams. There’s a wood-burning fireplace in the living room–and that terrace.
The apartment’s two bedrooms are good-sized; one features a sleek custom murphy bed. Though there’s enough space in the apartment without tucking the furniture out of sight, that second bedroom can convert into a perfect home office and occasional guest room.
The fully-furnished sublet is available from the beginning of June through November; there’s also a “no shares” rule, which we find a little confusing.
