Enjoy spectacular light and views from this renovated corner two-bedroom residence situated on the fifth floor of 170 Second Avenue, the East Village's preeminent full service cooperative at the corner of 11th Street. This refined home is a modern classic -- its renovations respect the character of this historic 1929 building, while bringing it completely up-to-date, replacing plumbing and electricity, and choosing new finishes and fixtures that marry the historic period to today's aesthetic. With ten windows, this sun-filled home overlooks historic St. Mark's Church to the west and reveals the Empire State Building and treetop views to the north.

A large entry foyer opens into the expansive 24' living room which overlooks the landmarked church and showcases this home's pre-war details: original oak flooring, beamed ceilings with exquisite crown moldings, and 9-foot ceiling heights. Accessed through a set of French doors, the full dining room and open kitchen look out onto the city skyline and tree-lined 11th Street through three large windows. The kitchen boasts custom cabinetry, Caesarstone countertops, a spacious center island, and upscale appliances including Jenn-Air range and microwave, Fisher & Paykel french door refrigerator, and Bosch dishwasher.

The corner primary bedroom has north and west exposures with views over the historic church and the city skyline. It boasts two large closets and an adjacent large windowed marble bathroom with the original reglazed 5.5-foot cast iron soaking tub and a separate shower. The secondary bedroom overlooks the church and a second bathroom is located right off the foyer. Closets abound throughout the residence. Washer and dryer in home is allowed with board approval.

170 Second Avenue features a beautiful lobby with original terrazzo floors, brass chandeliers, Art Deco murals and a mahogany-paneled elevator. It is impeccably maintained by a wonderful full-time staff, comprised of porters, a live-in superintendent and 24-hour elevator attendant. Amenities include central laundry, storage and bike rooms. It is located near fantastic restaurants, Union Square, Astor Place, Tompkins Square Park and public transportation.
