Encompassing the 8th and 9th levels and the mezzanine, One One Eight PH is a 3,082 sq. ft three-bedroom, 3 bath residence that represents the very latest in both contemporary chic and sustainable building. Ringed with terraces and balconies and topped with a stunning roof-spanning deck, this luxurious and meticulously planned triplex is perfect for city dwellers who love an urban tempo but crave an indoors-outdoors balance.
Direct keyed elevator access opens into a foyer, beyond which lies a sun-drenched terrace with a boxwood hedge. Boasting 15′ ceilings, the dining area and living room are ideal for entertaining and relaxing, with the latter featuring an additional airy 66 sq. ft. balcony and a ventless fireplace with Tundra Gray stone mantel and surround. The gourmet kitchen is a masterful combination of efficiency and culinary technology with sleek Miele appliances, a chef’s 36″ Bertazzoni induction range and hood, Artemis White marble countertops and backsplash, a dual-zone French door wine refrigerator, Bosch drawer microwave and concealed trash bins, all surrounded by European Oak cabinetry by Alta Cucine.
The half-floor primary bedroom suite includes room for seating, exercising or an office, a Juliet balcony with an irrigated hanging garden, roomy walk-in closet and a jewel-box en-suite bath with customized dual vanity, Siberian and Woodgrain marble walls, herringbone flooring, Italian fixtures by New Form in brushed stainless steel and a handcrafted bathtub by Wetstyle. Two further spacious bedrooms, one with courtyard balcony, offer Italian wardrobes by Alta with white lacquered doors, contrasting all-wood interiors and LED lighting. A second full bath boasts elegant finishes and fixtures by New Form and Kohler. Both baths have Toto toilet fixtures and Aquadom medicine cabinets with integrated dimmable LED lighting, clock, USB outlet and defogger.
On the third level a large space overlooks the living and dining areas: currently configured as a media room, it could also serve as a gym or home office. Sprawling over 1194′ sq. ft., the crowning roof garden includes a kitchen with an electric BBQ range and wet bar for gatherings as well as irrigation for a lap pool or jacuzzi. Stunning views day and night include the Empire State and Chrysler Buildings. Plantings of potted juniper and hydrangeas are served by automatic Hunter Node battery-operated irrigation systems with drip irrigation lines in all planters.

Surrounded by the famously bohemian cafes, restaurants and night-spots of the East Village, including such standbys as Katz’s Deli, Lucien, Russ & Daughters, Dirty French and Prune, the building literally overlooks the historic streets of the LES, where cultural centers such as The New Museum and the International Museum of Photography, art galleries and emporiums hum with creative energy. Equinox is across the street, Whole Foods a block away. Near the F/M/J/Z trains, the Penthouse at One One Eight is a chance to stake a claim at the center of things.
