Enjoy Manhattan life in a gracious Gramercy duplex penthouse with two private terraces. This two-bedroom, two-bathroom secluded space, located in a historic landmarked townhouse on tree-lined Block Beautiful, features soaring ceilings, exposed brick walls, hardwood floors and oversized windows bringing in natural light from all four exposures. Both living room and master bedroom have working wood-burning fireplaces. Overlooking the living room is an airy and spacious mezzanine that can be used as a library, a den, or an office. The mezzanine leads to the separate terraces with their wooden decks. Read the Sunday Times in the morning on the northern terrace, with a view of the Empire State Building. Bathe in the afternoon and evening light on the southern terrace and its stone garden. Be away from the city in the city! Along the hall leading from living room to master bedroom are a walk-in closet, a second enclosure equipped with a stacked washer and dryer, and a master bathroom with both a deep soaking tub and a stone-lined shower. Another spacious closet fills one wall of the master bedroom. Adjacent to the living room is the enclosed windowed kitchen with an abundance of counter and custom-built wooden cabinet space. Just beyond are the second bathroom and the second bedroom currently used as a dining room. Additional storage space and bike storage are located in the basement. 130 East 19th Street is a four-unit walk up cooperative originally built in 1876. The building is located in the Gramercy Park landmark area, a small, quiet residential enclave -- central to nearly everything, including all transportation, coveted restaurants and gourmet food shopping. Choose a latte and fresh-made baked goods from one of the many cafes nearby to sustain you while you stroll the world-famous Union Square farmers market or nearby Madison Square Park and Stuyvesant Square Park!
