Renters looking to enjoy a peaceful haven in the middle of the vitality of the East Village are certain to be drawn to this two-bedroom duplex at 102 East 10th Street, asking $7,500 per month. The parlor duplex with an English basement is located in a historic townhome designed by Peter Gerard Stuyvesant (the great, great grandchild of Peter Stuyvesant) and is situated less than a block from the Renwick Triangle. Original details and a private terrace make the charming home much more of a pleasant retreat than you’d imagine would be found in such a convenient location.

Enter through a private, secure entry to find the sleeping quarters of this reverse-layout duplex. This basement floor sports wood-beamed ceilings, while the wide-plank hardwood floors extend throughout the entire space. Both of the two bedrooms have original fireplaces. The master also has an en suite bathroom, washer and dryer, and access to the 275-square-foot planted outdoor terrace. The second bedroom also has a bathroom, although it shares it with the second level living space.

Upstairs, the parlor floor has light from northern and southern exposures, and the home’s two other original fireplaces. The third fireplace is in the northern-facing dining room, which overlooks the tree-lined street. The kitchen is located right off this room. On the opposite side, the southern living room has the last fireplace.

Living in this enclave on 10th Street may feel like a vacation, but it’s actually just steps away from Astor Place, along with eateries, shops, and hot spots.

  • Peter Stuyvesant

    Um… it was built in 1836 by a man who died in 1672?

  • It was his great, great grandson of the same name. Clarification made. And thanks for pointing that out!
