Features & Amenities :
Start with 2 adjacent apartments . . . combine them. . . then add some amazingly well-thought out renovations. . . What you’ll end up with is this spectacular 3 Bedroom, 2.5 bath, 1,750sq ft. urban home.
When you first walk in you’ll find yourself in the great room. And it truly is GREAT with two large double-width windows, beamed ceilings accentuated by crown molding, and a 11 ft long built-in cherry wood shelf unit that’s the perfect home for your large-screen TV, which you’ll want to connect to the sound system feeding the in-wall surround sound speakers! The dining side of the great room is large enough to accommodate large gatherings of family and/or friends.
Beyond the great room on one side is a beautiful half bath for your guests - a rarity in the city – in addition to a spacious, windowed laundry room - another rarity - with tiled floor plus full size washer and dryer, counter and storage space and laundry bins beneath the counters. A nearby door opens to one of two roomy work nooks, large enough for desk and chair.
Continuing past the guest bathroom you will find the private master suite with added closet space plus a fully renovated, windowed bath with Grohe fixtures and glass enclosed shower.
The other side of the great room leads to the kitchen which is renovated top-to-bottom with cherry wood cabinetry, granite countertops and slate floor. You’ll find a 36” Subzero refrigerator, 30” Viking over, Miele dishwasher and Viking microwave. Adjacent to the kitchen is a 2nd dining area with room for table and chairs, perfect for a quick breakfast or lunch. This area also opens to the 2nd work nook.
Beyond the kitchen are two large bedrooms plus the 2nd windowed, full bathroom that is also renovated top-to-bottom, including Grohe fixtures.
Other features that you’ll find throughout the apartment include hardwood parquet floors, base and crown molding, in-wall speakers in many of the rooms, and custom radiator covers.
Last, but certainly not least, are the unique usage options this space offers thanks to the end-to-end (v. side by side) position of the two combined apartments. The current configuration provides a private master suite for the parents at one end and two bedrooms plus bath for the children at the opposite end. But other options include (1) using the current master suite as a private guest suite for visiting family and friends, (2) using the current master suite for live-in parent(s), nanny or housekeeper, (3) using the current master suite as a professional office with separate entrance for clients. It’s rare to find a space that’s as flexible as this. Don’t miss the opportunity to make this urban home yours. Call for an appointment today.

Look for the double pine tree insignia of The Hillman community on the north side of Grand Street. This gracious complex boasts gorgeous landscaping, jewel-toned impatiens bordering every courtyard, and a private, gently sloping, locked park enclosed by an elegant wrought iron fence. The tall trees form a canopy over the lush greenery, with plentiful benches winding around the pathway.
The wooden and glass doors in the stone entryways lead into beautiful private lobbies for each section, and access is secured by a double door buzzer system. The common areas including the lobbies, laundry rooms and fitness center, are monitored by security cameras. All of the apartments have been furnished with new, easy to clean Traco windows. The fully equipped state-of-the-art exercise room offers cable television while you work out on treadmills, bicycles, ellipticals, Stairmasters and circuit training machines and is open 24 hours accommodating every schedule. The laundry rooms, too, are available for use round-the-clock. An indoor community room and a children’s playroom offer gathering places and activities for the community’s seniors and youngsters.
Cultural offerings are literally steps away at the neighboring historic Abrons Arts Center and Harry De Jur Playhouse. Hillman is also especially convenient to the shops and services on Grand Street. M14 bus service will bring you right to your door and provide easy access to the F, J, M and Z trains.
The coops are a brief walk away from East River Park, a jewel of the NYC Parks Department which offers a jogging path, river promenade, tennis courts, athletic fields, and amphitheater where free concerts are held in the spring and summer. In the other direction the excitement of Chinatown, Little Italy and the East Village are a stroll or short bus ride away.
