The top-floor residence at 262 E. Seventh St., a four-unit townhouse co-op between Avenue C and Avenue D, has arrived on the sales market.
Bright and airy, this penthouse apartment situated in a historic townhouse co-op combines old world charm with functional modern living. This rare offering is perched in the treetops facing both north and south and situated on one of the East Village’s most coveted blocks.

The apartment has been architecturally designed to provide a tremendous amount of built-in and hidden storage. The kitchen is loaded with top of the line finishes and living area features a decorative whitewashed brick fireplace currently configured to burn ethanol. Above the fireplace is a remote operated oversized projection screen. The well thought out and stylish bathrooms provide the option of a master ensuite and second full guest bath.
Asking price: $1.35 million.
This is one of five pastel-colored townhouses dating to the 1840s on this south side of the street. In September 2016, a permit was filed with the DOB to demolish the circa-1843 townhouse next door at No. 264. Preservationists aimed to get the buildings landmarked, though the Landmarks Preservation Commission later announced that they would not consider the residences here for that designation.
There haven’t been any further developments in recent months about the future of No. 264.
