525 East 12th Street is a new development in New York's East Village and is one of the finest new boutique condominiums in the area. The penthouse unit is a true stunner, with plenty of light, space and views.
The penthouse residence is a floor-through loft home with two bedrooms and two baths. The unit can be made much larger using the additional 1,035 square feet of air rights that come with the property. The private roof deck is accessed via an internal staircase and offers unparalleled views of the city, East Village and the Empire State building. The home features extra-large "picture frame" windows, which feature stunning south views, directly facing the beautiful Sauer Park. The home features a fully equipped chef's kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances including a Wolf range, Sub-Zero refrigerator, Miele dishwasher, Marvel wine cooler and Zephyr vent. The kitchen is also expertly finished with a stone quartz countertop bar and seamless Italian SCIC cabinetry. The bedroom faces the verdant gardens and includes a balcony and a master bath with a glass-tile shower. The second bath features natural stone.
The building offers a few perks to attract prospective buyers. There is private, keyed-elevator access to the apartments, and a video intercom system. While there are some amenities, this building would probably not be a perfect fit for someone seeking full-service living. There are many nearby options for arts, dining, shopping and entertainment in this area. There is also public transportation in the vicinity.
