113 East 2nd Street presents a rare opportunity for a purchaser to acquire a 25-foot wide, 6,993 square foot two-family townhouse. It is currently configured as an owners unit with seven bedrooms, four full baths and a half bath. On the parlor floor there is a separate one bedroom apartment with 1.5 baths. This first floor unit can be kept as-is or incorporated into the rest of the townhouse. This unit does have very limited and specific commercial uses. The house will be delivered vacant.
More than just a home, this serene townhouse is a piece of art that has been painstakingly curated and brought to life. With influences from both near and far - inspired by items acquired from local East Village folk artists and Tibetan monasteries, this finely crafted home is none like any other you have ever seen.
This eco-conscious townhouse has exposed brick walls; interior clay walls designed to keep the house cool in summer and warm in the winter. It has exposed wood ceiling beams, and many windows throughout. The house was designed to maximize light and air circulation - a large series of skylights allow natural light to pour through the house, enhanced by additional interior windows and carefully positioned cut outs in the central staircase. Perfect for entertaining or for your personal enjoyment, each floor of the house features large rooms and high ceilings. There is a huge eat-in kitchen, with restaurant caliber appliances.
The rear facade and garden overlook the trees of a nearby park. With no buildings to the south of the property there is clearance for much more air and light than you would typically find.
A tremendous effort has been made to preserve the heritage of this East Village property. An urban archeologist excavated and analyzed the back garden and uncovered river rocks and artifacts that were the incorporated into the building design. Vintage subway tiles and unique doors and hand laid tiling are found throughout the home, while antique china plates form the backsplash in the kitchen.
And then there is the basement and cellar. Transformed into a performance space complete with a stage and 14-foot ceilings, it could become your private music studio or your urban retreat. It simply must be viewed to be appreciated.
The townhouse is not fully built and additional FAR is available.
The overall effect of stepping into this townhouse is a visual tour de force, with the history and character of the East Village deeply embedded in the design and architecture of this remarkable home.
