Truly the most unique property in the East Village, the penthouse at 72 East 1st Street is a full floor duplex with an artist atelier topped with a custom designed Nantucket style cottage. The prime corner location, unobstructed views of Lower Manhattan through twenty-two windows, two wood burning fireplaces, and low monthlies create a spectacular offering that can only be described as a once in a lifetime opportunity. Please note this is a walk up to the fourth floor.

Featuring over 3,000 interior
... and exterior square feet, the residence is currently configured as two separate spaces, a 3 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom duplex occupying the entire fourth and fifth floors and a cottage apartment with a private wraparound terrace. With creative vision, this penthouse can be converted to a single residence or left as individual units.

DUPLEX: Occupying the entire fourth and fifth floors, the duplex is divided into two distinct areas: living quarters and a former artist studio. The double height great room features 18’ ceilings, dramatic exposed beams, eight 9-over-9 double hung windows and a private balcony overlooking mature trees. Incredible views over First Park and endless sunlight result in a one-of-a-kind creative retreat in the epicenter of downtown Manhattan. Overlooking below, the second level allows excellent space for entertaining or can be converted into additional rooms. For added convenience there is a small kitchenette and a fully renovated marble bathroom.

Accessible from both levels of the atelier, the living quarters feature three bedrooms, and one and a half bathrooms. The sunken living/dining room is centered around a wood burning fireplace and framed by five corner 9-over-9 double hung windows. The renovated kitchen is outfitted with stainless steel appliances, granite countertops and a pass through window. Additionally on this level are a guest bedroom and powder room.

A thoughtfully placed cottage style staircase opens to the second level of the living quarters. Open and spacious, the master bedroom with a wood burning fireplace occupies the Southeast corner, matching the grandeur of the living/dining room below. The massive dressing room houses a washer/dryer, ample storage and leads to the updated en suite master bathroom. Opposite the master bedroom is a second bedroom with direct access to the atelier.

ROOF COTTAGE: The crown jewel of this offering is a loft penthouse built on the roof in design of a Nantucket cottage with weathered shingles, cupola and wraparound terrace. New Marvin true divided light windows and a glass block wall highlight extraordinary open views through three exposures. Direct access to the private roof terrace from double french doors create a charming retreat and a rare offering in all of Manhattan. The cottage includes a full bathroom and kitchenette.

BUILDING: A cornerstone walk up condominium, the Minthorne House is a notable example of a prewar architecture in heart of the East Village. The site was formerly part of the Minthorne Farm, a 50 acre plot sold to Philip Minthorne by the Dutch East India Company in the 18th century. The structure was built in 1868 and consists of only three residential units across five stories. Nearby neighborhood favorites include three green spaces (First Park, Peretz Square and Sara D. Roosevelt Park) Russ and Daughters, Lucien, Prune, and Juicy Lucy. Additional conveniences include the F train across the street, Whole Foods two blocks away and countless dining and nightlife options.
