After bankruptcy auction, 113 E. 2nd St. returns to market for $1.1 million more

A for-sale sign has been posted outside the townhouse at 113 E. Second St. between Avenue A and First Avenue.

Just last month, as The Real Deal reported, an entity called 180 Source Realty LLC bought the property for $7.4 million in a bankruptcy auction.

Apparently 180 Source Realty LLC — property records list its manager as Michael Lavian — isn't keeping the five-story, two-family home: it hit the market last week for $8.4 million.

Here's a bit of the listing via Leslie J. Garfield:

Number 113 is currently configured as a two-family with a former performance space in the garden floor. This stately red brick townhome features incredible ceiling heights throughout, a spacious garden, and an open layout chef’s kitchen. The upper quadruplex features 7 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms and the parlor floor unit is a charming 1 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment. With no buildings obstructing light on either side of the house, light flows through both the front and rear facades.

The townhouse was once home to Phil Hartman and Doris Kornish, the founders of the Two Boots empire, and had been the center of a protracted divorce battle, as the Post reported in October 2017. At that time, the asking price was $10.5 million.

The home has a little less shade these days: the tree outside the property was recently cut down...

Townhouse rich in art history for sale on 11th Street; air rights included

A lovely old townhouse at 217 E. 11th St. between Second Avenue and Third Avenue is new to the market.

Here's the pitch (H/T Curbed!) via Corcoran:

Built in 1856, this Anglo-Italianate style townhouse with a beautiful façade and high stoop has a lot to offer the right buyer. Rich in history, this was the home of Dore Ashton, a well-known writer, professor, and art critic. Ashton was the matriarch of the abstract art movement; seemingly, every major artist got their start at her home.

Bring your architect and customize this townhouse to your liking. Located on a tree-lined East Village Street, the townhouse stands five floors plus a basement. Currently configured as two units, there are six bedrooms and three baths. The layout offers multiple possibilities. Enjoy income while living in the upper portion of the house and renting out the garden level apartment. Alternatively, create a single-family dream home.

The townhouse features an impressionable parlor floor, high ceilings, and original details such as hardwood floors, moldings, and fireplaces. There are no tall buildings in the vicinity, affording very nice light. Perhaps best of all is the enchanting 60-foot garden, surrounded by other townhouse gardens creating openness and a feeling of serenity.

According to PropertyShark, considerable air rights are available. Property Shark shows the maximum usable floor area is 5100 SF, of which 2639 SF is used and 2460 SF is available.

Asking price $4.5 million.

Ashton, who taught art history at the Cooper Union, the New School and SVA, died in February at age 88.

That rather nondescript building on 12th Street houses an 'East Village beauty'

I've walked by the residential building at 407 E. 12th St. on my way to and from Academy Records between Avenue A and First Avenue so many times ... and I never thought much of it.

But apparently it's pretty nice on the inside, based on a new listing for this two-bedroom condo. Bond New York has the listing, which describes the home as an "East Village beauty":

Not–to-be-missed gorgeous two bedroom, two bath, condo beauty in the heart of the East Village. This home is a must-see embodying all that a hip, cool, understatedly elegant apartment has to offer, not to mention EXTREMELY LOW MONTHLY CHARGES!!

Leave the hustle bustle of the vibrant East Village behind as you enter this pin-drop quiet home. The unit boasts a comfortable and spacious living room with an open kitchen and gracious dining area perfect for entertaining or just cozy, quiet nights at home. The entire apartment is outfitted with remote controlled ceiling fans and air conditioners in every room for perfect room temperature preference.

The kitchen has been newly appointed with custom made touches that lend a homey country feel with built-in shelving for your favorite cookbooks and nick knacks. The butcher block counter is a wide planked, two toned, deconstructed Cherry wood kitchen island with extra deep, quiet-close drawers. A washer/dryer is included for convenience.

There's also shared space out back and on the roof...

Earthquake-compliant townhouse for sale on East 7th Street

[Image via Cushman & Wakefield]

There's a new listing for 203 E. Seventh St. We'll head to Cushman & Wakefield for the listing:

The subject is a 5-story townhouse located on the north side of East 7th Street between Avenues B & C. Completed in 2001, 203 East 7th Street is approximately 6,920 SF and consists of 4 spacious apartments with high-end finishes.

Of the 4 apartments, 1 is duplexed on the ground floor, 2 are floor-through units on the 2nd and 3rd floors and the 4th and 5th floor penthouse is a duplex with private rooftop access. In addition to the penthouse, the 1st floor duplex and 2nd floor apartment benefit from private outdoor space at the rear of the property. 203 East 7th Street is the perfect townhouse for an individual or family looking to live in one of Manhattan's most exciting neighborhoods.

Due to the rise in residential condominium prices citywide, renovated townhouses have become incredibly challenging to find. Each unit is separately metered for heat (gas), cooking gas and electric. Therefore the building would also be ideal for an investor looking for a turnkey opportunity. The building is located just a half-block east from bustling Tompkins Square Park.

The building is steel and concrete in addition to being earthquake compliant and fire resistant.

Asking price: $7 million
