In any event, let's take a look at what you get for the $1,295 million asking price for this second-floor unit...
According to the listing at Core:
This home is situated in a historic building, once a Synagogue that was restored and redeveloped into a 5 intimate residences. Located on one of the most prominent blocks in the East Village, this home offers a generous 1500 square foot loft with a vast living room, two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a home office, and den. The upper level is comprised of the master suite overlooking the living area which boasts 16 foot ceilings in this multilevel apartment. Features of this residence include an open kitchen, washer and dryer, and plenty of storage space. This unique residence would truly make for a gracious home.
As Streeteasy noted, the home was listed by Corcoran at $996,000 in 2006. Is this address still considered sacred?
Update: Good point made in the comments... this address has been residential since the 1980s... Didn't mean to give the impression that this space was only recently converted to housing.... I did make this clear in my previous post on the building.
