No one seems to want to keep these historic Anglo-Italianate townhouses on 10th Street



Off and on through the [EVG] years, those beautiful single-family Anglo-Italianate townhouses that date to the 1850s at 123-125 E. 10th St. between Second Avenue and Third Avenue have been for sale.

And now they are both back on the market here in the St. Mark's Historic District. The listings arrived yesterday on Streeteasy. (No. 123 is here... and No. 125 is here.)

The Post first took note of this. We'll let them do the lifting:

One, at 123 E. 10th St., listed with Mark Amadei of Sotheby’s International Realty for $7.69 million. The other, 125 E. 10th St., hit the market for $8.3 million and is represented by Jason Haber of Warburg Realty.

But together, according to the Warburg listing, both can be sold together for $15.99 million.

“123 E. 10th St. was built at the same time as [125 E. 10th St.] and they share one of the largest private gardens in Manhattan,” the Warburg listing adds.

Fun cost-of things fact: In 2011, the two-townhouse combo price was $12.95 million.

A few pics now. These are from No. 125... inside and out...





As TMZ Grieve reported off and on in 2012 and 2013 and, what the hell, 2014, Mary-Kate Olsen and her beau Olivier Sarkozy bought No. 123, and they rented No. 125. Eventually they sold No. 123 and went off elsewhere.

A home for sale in this pastel-colored townhouse on 7th Street


[Image via Compass]

The top-floor residence at 262 E. Seventh St., a four-unit townhouse co-op between Avenue C and Avenue D, has arrived on the sales market.

Here's the listing via Compass (and h/t to 6sqft!):

Bright and airy, this penthouse apartment situated in a historic townhouse co-op combines old world charm with functional modern living. This rare offering is perched in the treetops facing both north and south and situated on one of the East Village's most coveted blocks.

With incredibly low maintenance, high ceilings and a generous south facing private outdoor terrace, this voluminous two-bedroom, two-bath home boasts a remarkably versatile layout. Upon entering you are greeted by an open living area with a kitchen that would delight any home chef. The designated dining space is a dream for entertaining and the home office space is conveniently located by one of the large north facing windows.

The apartment has been architecturally designed to provide a tremendous amount of built-in and hidden storage. The kitchen is loaded with top of the line finishes and living area features a decorative whitewashed brick fireplace currently configured to burn ethanol. Above the fireplace is a remote operated oversized projection screen. The well thought out and stylish bathrooms provide the option of a master ensuite and second full guest bath.



Asking price: $1.35 million.

This is one of five pastel-colored townhouses dating to the 1840s on this south side of the street. In September 2016, a permit was filed with the DOB to demolish the circa-1843 townhouse next door at No. 264. Preservationists aimed to get the buildings landmarked, though the Landmarks Preservation Commission later announced that they would not consider the residences here for that designation.

There haven't been any further developments in recent months about the future of No. 264.

A townhouse in a penthouse on 9th Street


[Image via Streeteasy]

I never paid much attention to 214 E. Ninth St., a residential building between Second Avenue and Third Avenue that counted the now-closed Dahlia's Tapas Wine Bar as a retail tenant.

Apparently it's quite nice inside... at least the top-floor unit that just arrived on the market is...

Here's the listing via Streeteasy:

A townhouse in an East Village Penthouse! Must be seen to truly experience all of the amazing design flourishes that went into making this home an Architectural Digest-featured property. No detail was overlooked in the gut renovation of this triplex, convertible-two bedroom with sprawling rooftop garden, and complete with outdoor shower.

All kitchen cabinets were designed specifically for this home and stained to match the neutral color palette throughout, with a custom Lacanche range and full-slab Carrera marble countertops and backsplash. The sun-drenched, south-facing living room has vaulted 18’ ceilings, oversize windows, and a fireplace.

The stairs lead up to a sitting area/media room, which was formerly the apartment’s master bedroom, and has an extensive walk-in custom closet. The master bathroom has a steam and rain shower, as well as free-standing, clawfoot tub, which is accentuated by a vintage crystal Kinkeldey chandelier. Full-slab granite marble flooring and a double Carrera marble vanity receive plenty of extra light from the bathroom’s skylight. The top floor is the master suite, with an operable window wall that leads out onto your own private rooftop oasis.

And some photos...









Price: $2.650 million.

It previously sold for $1.495 million in 2014, per Streeteasy.

That 12th Street 'Kate Spade' townhouse now with $4 million shaved off the top



Back in June, we noted that this fine single-family townhouse at 215 E. 12th St. was on the market for $16 million. (The place is owned by a founder of the Kate Spade brand.)

Well, it's a good thing that you waited before pouncing on this property. According to The Real Deal, the price of the home — dubbed the "Kate Spade House" by the publication — between Second Avenue and Third Avenue has been reduced by 25 percent to $12 million. (Woo!)

3rd Avenue penthouse cottage returns to market as a $17k monthly rental


[EVG file photo]

Last Aug. 27, the penthouse home(s) atop the building that houses Kiehl's on the northeast corner of Third Avenue and 13th Street caught fire...


Despite how it looked, the damage was minimal to the cottage that had just sold for $4.4 million.

You still have a chance to live here, though. As the Post reported, the 1,972-square-foot rooftop duplex (apartment 4CD) with three bedrooms and three bathrooms is now available as a rental — for $17k a month.

Here's part of the listage action via Corcoran:

An open kitchen features stainless steel appliances including Miele dishwasher and Wolf range, along with a dramatic Thermador vented range hood. Hand-painted Victorian-era aluminum casted balusters line the staircase leading up to the stunning master bedroom suite.

Enter this second level through the spectacular solarium, sun-flooded during the days and great for stargazing at night through its numerous skylights. This well-designed suite is complete with a spa-like master bath featuring a deep-soaking tub and separate steam shower, a windowed study/dressing area, and corner fireplace. The two spacious terraces flank the second level, the larger featuring an outdoor wood-burning fireplace, retractable awning, and four exposures with views of the Empire State Building. There is also a new irrigation system in place.

To refresh your memory...

Your dreams of living in a penthouse cottage above Kiehl's are dashed for now



Back in June we noted that those cottage-style penthouses atop the building that houses Kiehl's on the northeast corner of Third Avenue and 13th Street were on the market with an asking price of $4.4 million.

Well, the place is now in contract, Curbed reported today:

When reached for comment, Corcoran listing broker Tamir Shemesh couldn't give up what the three-bedroom pad is selling for, only that it's "going for a very good price" and that "both the seller and buyer are very happy." We'd be happy, too, if those were our new digs.

Well, maybe this cabin will return to market.
