Hmm. Here at 149 Avenue C, there's a one-bedroom co-op new to the market for $525,000. Here's a listing:
Quality, Perfection (and perhaps a terrace!) This gorgeous renovated home exudes style and is perfectly located in the hippest part of the East Village only 1 1/2 blocks from Tompkins Square Park. Meticulously designed by Tetsu O'Hara, this home boasts subtle carefully placed angles that invoke intrigue as you examine the space more closely. The sleek hand crafted wall cabinet provides a clear focal point and is backlight for evening ambience. The exposed brick adds warmth and the three exposures add natural light. The beautiful kitchen features maple cabinets, Corian counters, a Miele cooktop and a showpiece Grohe faucet. The windowed bathroom is classic white with a green glass tile border and there is a walk in closet in the master bedroom. This is an exceptional opportunity to possibly acquire rights to build a private deck on an adjacent 10x12 ft outdoor space (subject to board approval).
So you'd build this terrace on someone else's outdoor space? Oh, and it's Tetsu Ohara, not O'Hara. He's Japanese, not Irish. Anyway, pretty nice looking space...
See for yourself during the first open house on Sunday from noon to 1:30 p.m. You'll be out before the boozehounds show up for the free booze at the Sunburnt Cow.
