Rarely does an apartment on Avenue B directly across the street from Tompkins Square Park come to market. And even more rare is a two bedroom in an elevator building with views of the park! Available for the first time since 1996, apartment 5B at 131 Avenue B is a charming two bedroom, one bath home set back through a courtyard and looking west toward the green treetops of the park. It’s generous and quiet living room can easily accommodate gracious living and dining and features three bright exposures for light and air. You enter the master bedroom through French doors on the east side of the room where there is a terrific closet and plenty of built-ins for additional storage. The second bedroom is large and square enough to accommodate a lovely guest room, kid sanctuary or office. The windowed galley kitchen also faces east and has updated stainless steel appliances. Across the hall sits the large bathroom with huge soaking tub, stainless steel sink and washer (installation of dryer possible). 131 Avenue B is a well maintained 18 unit East Village elevator co-op classic. There is protected outdoor bike storage on street level, laundry room in the basement and a part time doorman who will take packages during the day. These vintage beauties don’t come around very often, so get in touch for an appointment today.
