The former Brettschneider Funeral Home at 49 E. Seventh St. just east of Second Avenue sold last summer for $4 million... and after renovations, Skyway Development Group has been marketing the new homes here, rentals that range from $4,900 to $9,250.
Here's the listing via Streeteasy:
Townhouse 49 is a first class boutique residential building …In a wonderful turn of the last century brownstone building, built in 1900, there is intimacy with exceptional style…the building, now meticulously renovated from top to bottom features tasteful condo quality finishes, unlike any other rental on the market..No expense has been spared to give the tenant the feeling of LUXURY in a very hip downtown location.. Perched on a tree-lined street, reminiscent of Old New York, but yet, a new vibrant and happening neighborhood, the East Village, Lower East Side , Union Square & Greenwich village are all in easy access..A new Day for the East Village.
Here are a few shots of a unit going for $8,450.
A "New Day for the East Village"?
The funeral home moved out in 2005/2006.
