Town House

Built in 1899

Historic elegance meets modern sophistication in this magnificent, impeccably gut-renovated 25-foot wide, 5-story mansion located in the vibrant East Village. Erected circa 1840, the building since served as a parsonage for St. Mark's Evangelical Lutheran Church, and later became home of a radical press, commune, the world's first macrobiotic restaurant, a coffee shop, and a bookstore/hangout for poets and creatives. The house's uniquely incredible history was recently written up in an article in the NY Times and celebrated with a song cycle. More recently the 7,500 square foot jewel was meticulously restored and transformed into a prized single-family residence with 5 stories of stunning living space connected by stairs and an elevator, an additional full basement, and generous outdoor space with a parlor floor terrace, third floor balcony, remarkable rooftop terrace and a sunny south-facing garden.

An architectural masterpiece, 64 East 7th Street is marked by a striking main entrance graced by a paneled entablature with grouped nuts and berries set atop the brownstone pilasters, and a sleek wrought-iron entry gate. The handsome brick building also boasts a planted forecourt, brownstone base, and exquisite cornice heightening curb appeal. Interiors are finely finished and tastefully designed, featuring striking elements throughout like gorgeous wood beamed ceilings, rich wood floors, oversized windows bathing rooms in floor-through natural light, warm exposed brick, 7 fireplaces, tasteful built-ins, and fabulous moldings and millwork. Here you'll enjoy the ultimate in downtown luxury living, in one of NYC's most dynamic neighborhoods. Whole Foods and Wegmans, The Public and other theaters, and Noho and Soho shopping are also all only a short walk away.

The ground floor with its own front entrance is an exceptional and historic space that has many functional areas. As you enter from the street there is a hanging closet and a music area with piano. Adjacent and next to the streetside windows there is a sitting area with a large OLED TV. The center of the floor-through room is a large informal dining area. Next comes two large inviting chairs facing a wood-burning fireplace and finally a well-appointed chef's kitchen and adjacent eat-in area with doors opening to the garden. The floor has open wood beams and reminds of the history of the house as an intimate restaurant and bookstore.

The entire ground floor looks out through a south-facing wall of glass to the architect-designed garden. At the rear of the garden is a slightly raised, secluded sitting space bounded on three sides by artist-design Jesmonite walls planted with greenery under beautiful shading tress. Closer to the kitchen is a large dining area with barbecue adjacent to a high ivy-covered wall. The garden is very private, far more than is typical in the city, and even more so because the building to the south is the windowless rear wall of a synagogue.

Up the inviting front stoop awaits the grand parlor level with very high ceilings and large windows at both ends which fill the floor with light. For upscale entertaining formal living and dining rooms here afford an ideal backdrop for the host and can remain open or privatized by pocket doors. Both living and dining rooms have woodburning fireplaces. The living room has a state-of-the-art Cinemascope projection theater with projector, screen and speakers hidden in the ceiling. The dining room can seat 12 or even 14 people for a large formal dinner. A catering kitchen with dishwasher sits nearby for formal dinners or for use as an informal drinks bar. French doors from the dining room open to a lovely terrace with stairs to the garde.

The third story hosts the palatial open floor-through owners' bedroom suite with wood-burning fireplace, sitting alcove, and three tall double doors which open to a private balcony. Enhancing the luxury is a large dressing room, high-end bath with sitting, gas fireplace and dual sinks, a freestanding soaking tub and separate shower. Next to the balcony is an exercise room; a beautiful, separately-accessible, home office with exposed brick wall is street side and completes this floor.

Level four is occupied by 2 bedrooms with en-suite baths both with showers and tubs (one with an electric fireplace and walk-in closet), built-in desks and OLED TV entertainment systems, and a staff room or home office with a full bath. An additional guest bedroom suite resides on the penthouse floor complete, which has an electric fireplace, OLED TV with surround sound and a full bath. This penthouse is adjacent to a private planted roof terrace with a pizza oven for sitting in the sun, enjoying the birds, and taking in the views.

The full basement has a laundry area, large open central storage area featuring the original brick "vaults," separate pantry/wine room, and state-of-the-art mechanicals including whole-house air conditioning and radiant heating. State of the art electronics include Gigabit Ethernet and advanced WiFi, Crestron home and AV control, Lutron lighting, a newly upgraded alarm and monitoring system, and even an Elevator UPS to provide power the elevator in case of a blackout.

This home is a treasure, on one of the East Village's best blocks near historic Tompkins Square Park, great eateries, bars, shops and conveniences.
