A gem location with limitless potential, this 1,354 square feet two bedroom, two-bath home has been lovingly maintained for nearly three decades by one family and is now ready for a new owner to re-imagine the space. The apartment boasts sunny views over Father Fagan Park that provides energizing light and tranquility. Located on the edge of Soho with easy access to shopping and restaurants, yet set away from all the bustle of the busy main streets. A spacious living and dining area with a decorative fireplace that could convert to gas or eco smart (with board approval), flows seamlessly into the graciously sized kitchen. The home features a large master suite with a second well-proportioned bedroom and full second bath. Both bedrooms feature a plethora of closet space. There is also a coat and linen closet adjacent to the apartment's foyer for additional storage. 196 Sixth Avenue was built in 1893 by Sgt. Nathaniel Bush, the official architect to the New York Police Department at the time. It was built as a precinct house and later became the NYPD quartermaster's storehouse. It was converted to a residential building in 1987. This private, boutique elevator co-op now sits on a quiet tree-lined park that is soon to be renovated with a grant from the city. It is conveniently located only moments away from the highly desired shops and dining in SoHo and the West Village. Easily accessible by several subway lines. Laundry room in the basement, and garbage room on every floor. Pets are welcome. ONGOING ASSESSMENT OF $893; PAID BY SELLERS FOR NEXT 2 YEARS!
