Be inspired in this amazing 3 bedroom 2 bath East Village Duplex Loft in a former late 19th Century School House, one of the finest buildings downtown with an artful history and creativity-infused environment. The space has triple exposures (south, north and east) and your own outdoor oasis! This ultra-charming home oozes with character and enjoys a superior location on magical tree-lined East 1st Street, at the crossroads of the East Village, NoHo, Lower East Side and SoHo. Be awed by flooding natural light that pours into the space through tall 10-foot windows, soaring 15-foot original tin ceilings with tin moldings, vintage stained hardwood floors, cast iron radiators and other distinctive architectural details. Be breath-taken by the proportion of the grand yet intimate interior that sets a comfortable tone for entertaining. The huge sun-drenched living/dining area is dramatized by chic Moroccan chandelier light fixtures and 3 massive south-facing windows overlooking enchanting East 1st. Your stunning gourmet kitchen is a chef's dream, styled with stainless steel countertops, appliances and prep table, plus new Pirelli tile floors. Adjacent awaits a lovely outdoor area for relaxing, offering vintage metal seating and a gas grill. This thoughtfully-designed loft has the best 3 bedroom layout possible with 1 BR off the kitchen, 2 upstairs, all pin-drop quiet. The 2nd-floor queen-size master presents a walk-in closet and an en-suite bath with a classic claw-foot tub with a view of the outdoor space. Other highlights include ample closet space, central air, and laundry just one flight down. The address is one block from Whole Foods, in the heart of excellent shopping and dining establishments.
