An offer has been accepted on a converted bath house residence in the East Village. Remarkably, there's been no give in the asking price in nearly two years on the market. One of just four public bath houses still standing in the city (all converted to residences), the exquisite spread includes four bedrooms, three-and-a-half baths, 18-foot ceiling in the master suite, 14-foot ceilings elsewhere, stained concrete floors, and a whopper of a garden. The broad-bodied interiors total 9,740 square feet. The conversion took place in the '80s but hasn't lost its edge. And now, the seller is on the verge of eclipsing their $1.55M 2003 purchase price by nearly $750K.
