In a city filled with space-challenged (okay, let’s just admit it, tiny) living spaces, one can only hope the expression “good things come in small packages” holds true. When we took one look at this adorable East Village co-op at 323 East 8th Street we felt compelled to take a little literary license with the well-known phrase because sometimes “great things come in small packages.”
There’s a lot of “wow” factor to this well-planned residence, which features dark ebony floors, exposed brick walls, a gorgeous decorative fireplace, and two windows each with arched brickwork and built-in black granite seats overlooking the trees of the rear garden.
The renovated kitchen offers black granite counters, a glass tile backsplash, and glass paneled maple cabinetry outfitted with both recessed overhead and under counter lighting. The new stainless steel appliances include a Sub-zero fridge and freezer, Bertazzoni four-burner gas range with oven, and a Dacor microwave /convection oven.
The bedroom surprisingly accommodates a queen-size bed and its two windows give the impression of a larger space. The windowed bath has been designed with white subway tiles complimented by a classic grey hexagon-patterned tile floor and a beautiful ceiling medallion surrounding the light fixture.
Situated on a quiet tree lined street near Tompkins Square Park and steps away from a host of cafes, restaurants and boutiques, this adorable small package has an equally adorable small price (well, at least by Manhattan standards)…only $555,000 and this charming East Village treasure is all yours.
