East Village, Manhattan / $780,000
Residence 5C is a Southern facing studio that stuns with natural light and captures rare, unobstructed park views. This efficient layout is easily furnished and highlights an open kitchen and ample storage space throughout.
Flooded with natural light and laid with solid white oak floors, the residences evoke a contemporary, yet industrial chic aesthetic through each carefully chosen design element. The open kitchen highlights bright, white cabinetry detailed with brass hardware and are set against a striking travertine marble backsplash and a white quartz countertop. A full suite of professional Bosch appliances has been seamlessly integrated to create a distinctive look.
Clean lines, open space, and an abundance of natural light make each bedroom a serene oasis from the energetic neighborhood below. The sleek bathrooms reveal a light palette of floor-to-ceiling porcelain tiles complemented by modern white vanities and mirrored Restoration Hardware medicine cabinets. A custom ribbed glass partition encloses the bathtub/shower combination that has been outfitted with bronze fixtures and a slate gray, herringbone tiled wall.
Ample closet space and a Bosch washer/dryer complete this ideal home, which can be augmented with a storage unit available at additional cost.
Upstairs, residents also enjoy a clean, Aegean rooftop lounge highlighting open skyline views. Furnished by Restoration Hardware, the roof features a first-of-its-kind installation, a four-foot-tall “Vandal Gummy” installation from iconic NYC street artist WhIsBe. The building will be virtually monitored by ButterflyMX, a smart intercom system that allows residents to receive video calls, unlock the door remotely, and grant managed access for deliveries and service providers all through the smartphone app interface. Additional conveniences at The Avant include private storage and bicycle storage.
The Avant is conveniently located in the heart of the East Village on 12th Street between Avenues A and B. Once home to New York’s bohemian culture and the birthplace of the city’s punk rock and literary scenes, the East Village is a vibrant, sought-after downtown neighborhood. Quaint cafs and energetic dive bars stand alongside trendy restaurants and swanky cocktail bars, alluding to the buzzing nightlife. In the daytime, Tompkins Square Park and the area’s many community gardens offer locals a respite from the bustling streets. Though the East Village has evolved from its counterculture days, the charming prewar buildings and communal spirit carry on its colorful past. The Avant is a place where symmetry, history, and whimsy fuse to become a foundation for a new generation of creative thinkers. Find your own foundation-visit us in the East Village yourself
