The two-bedroom apartment at 59 Fourth Avenue is still sitting on the market six months after it first popped up. After an unfruitful summer and several price chops from its $3 million price tag, today the seller is asking a reduced $2.5 million for the East Village pad. While the loft has some interesting dimensions, it still has much in the way of character, and the flexible layout allows for creative adjustments. Add to that a sublime roof deck and a prime location at the intersection of Greenwich Village, East Village and Union Square, and this unique unit could be a winner. But we’ll let you be the judge.
Exposed brick walls run through most of this 1,889-square-foot prewar loft, as do 13-foot barrel-vaulted ceilings and wide plank maple hardwood floors. A dining nook sits right off the home’s open stainless steel chef’s kitchen. The high-end kitchen boasts an abundance of custom cabinetry, an island with a stone countertop, and an oversized sink.
The living room is stationed at the back of the loft, with oversized pivot windows and plenty of light. Off the living room is the master bedroom, which comes complete with an en suite bath and a walk-in closet. The home also has additional storage with a linen closet, and a stacked washer and dryer.
Friends, family, and Fido will love the 360-degree views from the fully furnished roof deck. And when staring at the views makes you crave more interaction with the city, all you need to do is go outside. The best of downtown living is just steps from this apartment, with all the restaurants and shops Union Square and Astor Place have to offer conveniently close by.
The unit’s next-door neighbor is for sale as well, potentially as a dream home combo package.
