There's a new listing for 526 E. Fifth St., a single-family residence between Avenue A and Avenue B.
Here are a few highlights via the listing at Compass:
526 East 5th Street is a 20 foot wide single family townhouse spanning over 5,200 square feet across four stories. Originally built in 1900, a modern restoration led by renowned architect Annabelle Selldorf resulted in masterful engineering paired with character rich details. The impressive features include a 35 foot deep extension, exceptional light through four exposures, wide plank reclaimed floors, and a triple exposure windowed kitchen.
One of the highlights of this home is the entire fourth floor devoted to the master suite. Stretching across this level is the oversized master bedroom with a wood burning fireplace, dressing room, incredible windowed bathroom, and sunlit private den with exposed beams. This one-of-a-kind bathroom is lined with custom Moroccan fish scale tiles and features a dual vanity, claw foot tub and oversized stall shower. The charming den has floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors with a juliet balcony, a black marble powder room and a spiral staircase leading to the roof deck.
Additional amenities include a roof deck with treetop and downtown Manhattan views, a full sized laundry room on the garden level, brand new wiring and mechanicals, central AC, massive storage cellar and Citiquiet windows.
The listing has many interior shots... and in case you wondered what happened to the signage from Allied Hardware on Second Avenue. (Icon Realty wouldn't renew their lease.) We heard that the hardware store owners sold the sign for $100...
The asking price is $7.5 million.
Several years ago the multiple-dwelling building became a single-family residence. The new townhouse arrived on the market for $8.45 million in 2013.
An LLC called 526 E. 5th Street with a Brooklyn address bought the building for $3.2 in 2011. It changed hands to an LLP in 2015 for $6.5 million, per public record. It's unclear if any actual humans were living here.
