East Village Townhome Rental Photos and Description

Gorgeous 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, Library, Sun Room, 3 Terraces, Outdoor Hot Tu

Spectacular townhouse in Historic East Village that was formerly a synagogue! One of the city's last tenement Shuls, now a chic landmarked building, this former synagogue was brilliantly transformed into a magnificent home in 2005 by world-famous designers from the Ian Shrager Hotels – earning recognition in Architectural Record for its extraordinary transformation, and attracting the likes of press, politicians and entertainment figures. Yours to rent is the exquisite result of their top-of-the-line gut renovation: an immaculately-designed, 3 bedroom (possible 4), 2.5 bath fourplex that boasts 3 wonderful outdoor terraces, the finest finishes and fixtures, plus the most advanced automated central audio/visual, lighting, HVAC and integrated security systems. Other distinctive features that make this sun-drenched residence such a unique work of art are its custom-made windows that are exact replicas of when the building was a synagogue (including the Star of David!), and luxurious touches that include Brazilian hardwood cherry floors, hand-poured Brazililan glass mosaic tiles by Vidrotil, beautiful Wenge wood paneling, radiant floor heating, floor-to-ceiling steel cased windows and doors (the list goes on).

Entertaining is anyone's dream in the dramatic living area with 22' cathedral ceilings, floor-to-ceiling walls of restored and repointed exposed brick (east) and Wenge wood paneling (west), and a Cantilever balcony with a built-in projector for showcasing art. The ultimate open chef's kitchen wows you with its Italian granite counters, 20' island, floor-to-ceiling custom-built Wenge cabinets, Thermadore double ovens and separate cook top with grill, Sub-Zero main refrigerator plus 2 extra fridges in the island, Bosch dishwasher and separate Fisher Paykel double-drawer dishwasher, built-in temperature/humidity-controlled wine cooler. From the elegant dining area with the original restored 19th Century backlit Star of David sits a rear dining terrace beyond a wall of glass and steel windows and doors.

On the 3rd level, relax in the gorgeous library with custom-built floor-to-ceiling Wenge wood bookshelves, an Italian marble fireplace and a wet sink/wet bar with plumbing. Two guest bedrooms with custom wall-size closets and built-in stereo speakers ensure comfort and privacy. The 4th story presents a special floor-to-ceiling glass hallway and secluded master bedroom with a custom-built working fireplace, huge walk-in closet, and opulent master bath with an oversized Jacuzzi tub, walk-in shower with steam unit, rain shower, waterfall and separate hand-held shower. Enjoy quiet time on the delightful terrace off the master with a hot tub for 8, or ascend the glass stairs to the top floor sun-drenched lounge/media room (possible 4th bedroom) and terrace that also has Ipe wood floors and planters, copper rainspouts, a custom sound system and security cameras. 3235 interior sf and 982 exterior sf. Live-in caretaker and housekeeper provided on-site in separate apartment.

Rock stars and movie stars have requested this home in the past, many movies have requested to shoot in this home. Now for the first the owners are allowing certain select clients to rent this home.

WOW! this place is sublime.

  • 5 of 5
Tucked away on a quiet side street just half a block from the East Village excitement and Tompkins Sq Park. This was the nicest place we have ever stayed and its location is nothing short of fantastic. (The East Village is more glam than grit these days) Unlike the noise and density of the other parts of the city, we slept in comfort and quiet with the windows opened on a cool fall night. The modern conversion of this former synagogue into a spacious home reminded me of the Mandarin Oriental in Prague. Everything is sleek and comfortable yet you can see the evidence of its former life. This place is dialed in for entertaining with its huge kitchen and dining space overlooking one of many balconies. We had a dinner party for 15 and it was the highlight of the trip. The only bad thing about this house is you may be tempted to stay in and not see the city! When you do you can walk to so many great places to dine and shop. Short walks to Soho or Union Square or the West Village. After a day of hustle and bustle in the city it was always great to return here to the rooftop hot tub. There is person available to help or assist with everything as well, which was super convenient. We will be back!

Magnificent Find in the East Village

  • 5 of 5
I needed a place to stay that would achieve some business and social needs, and this was the perfect spot.

Check in and settling in was a breeze. The woman who greeted me was friendly and gracious. I could quickly and easily get work done, pop out for errands or coffee, or have friends over for dinner. It met all my expectations and needs for my stay in NYC.

Also, it's a stunning property. Totally simple and chic. Elite living all the way. Everywhere you walked through the house there were gorgeous touches. The amount of outdoor space was amazing and actually shocking, not something you'd expect for city living. The size of the kitchen wasn't only large enough to prepare a meal for a group, but a social space as well. Made the dinner party even more fun.

Thanks for the great stay, will be back.

Fantastic Find!

  • 5 of 5
Okay, so this ultra-luxury shul is now my favorite place to stay in all
of New York.

It's spectacular! Stylish and airy, this place is massive - with floor
after floor of gorgeous and roomy quarters.

Who knew this even existed in the East Village? Or all of New York?
Totally unique.

I lived in the area in the 90s and it is such a treat to be able to
return to the historic, funky neighborhood and stay in 5-star
accommodations. Tompkins Square Park is right there, and Soho, West Village, Union Square and much more are walking distance for us.

The kitchen is fantastic - state-of-the-art and perfect for large dinner
parties - where else in the city is that possible?

The rooftop hot tub was so relaxing and a must after walking around town.

The beds were super comfortable. It really felt homey, like sleeping in
my own bed.

Giant, and I mean GIANT, windows bathe the main living area with
beautiful natural light.

There are also really sweet outside areas to eat, read, meditate or hang out. That is so rare in the city.

Lastly, the bathrooms are all really pretty tile. You could get lost in
the master bath.

No scrimping on any details here.

It was really fun and I'll be back. Highly recommended.

Dare I say, "Religious experience?"
