Contract Signed. Board Sale with Pre-Approved renovation plans at the Hotel Irving. Apartment 3E is a former hotel suite currently configured as a one-bedroom and one-bathroom. This is an interior apartment with three-exposures and indirect light through large northern windows. The apartment is in move-in condition, yet the Board expects a new owner will eventually personalize and improve the apartment. There are wood floors, a tiled bath, large windows, and high ceilings. All owners have an opportunity to obtain one of the 383 keys that open the private park gates.
Gramercy Park is a wholly unique enclave of elegant prewar buildings constructed at the turn of the 19th Century around Manhattan’s only private park. #26 was constructed as the Hotel Irving, and in 1915, they were advertising bedrooms with a private bath and meals for $30 a week. The building was converted from a rental building to a cooperative in 1986 and many of the apartments have been combined and improved since. Apartment 3E retains updates from a few eras.
The building is a block-through cooperative with an entrance on the park and a secret entrance on East 19th Street near Irving Place, “Block Beautiful,” as it is known locally. The neighborhood is considered one of the city’s most elegant and evokes the evolving creativity, history, and wealth of the city. Your life here extends out into one of the very best locations in the city, steps away from all the action of downtown, including Union Square, Madison Square Park, and many of the best restaurants and shopping in New York City.
Pied-a-terres, guarantors, and co-purchasing are permitted. Subletting is allowed (after 3 years). Pets are welcome. There is a part-time doorman for evenings and weekends, a superintendent and porter, central laundry room, and extraordinary location.
