Over at 119 E. 10th St. (Central Village!), this home hit the market last week. Here's part of the Corcoran listing:
As featured in House & Garden: Uniquely special, garden level, 1 bedroom with office in a historic brownstone on the loveliest block in the East Village. Upon entering this very special apartment through your private gate, one is instantly transported to a retreat in the country.
... Continue through to the dining area complete with a wall of casement windows framing the view to the Old World, common garden behind and a Dutch door opening directly to this spectacularly private oasis.
Here are a few photos of Old World East Village...
Of course, the home doesn't come with an Old-World price: $1.7 million for one bedroom and 1.5 bathrooms.
