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.

Martin and his people were great hosts. They were very helpful and the place is great. The only small gripe I'd have is the bed in the master kind of sinks in the middle but otherwise the place was fantastic and couldn't have been happier.

Response from Martin:
There was a broken slat under the bed frame that has since been repaired. Bed is now perfect.

Martin´s place is amongst the very best we have ever stayed. The former synagogue is full of lovely details, it is thought thru completely, the interior design is amazing. To have an outside jacuzzi on a terrace is such a treat, as are the two additional terraces. To find such an exciting gem in the heart of Manhattan was really extraordinary and we were really lucky to stay. The neighbourhood is both trendy and calm - the street is quiet and safe, we didn´t hear any noise from the outside, yet great restaurants and bars around Tompkins Square Park are in walking distance. East Village is perfect to be the base for discovering New York - as it is so central that it takes just 15mins to Meatpacking, Battery Park, SoHo and even Brooklyn. Martin himself was truly lovely, he responds to questions in no time. I highly recommend him, it was a true pleasure! Thanks much, looking forward to return.

Thank`s again Martin and the crew for the fantastic stay at your beautiful place! Communication was quick and easy all the time. House was fully and very well equiped. The home isn`t noisy at all - we all slept well every night. We really enjoyed our stay to the fullest. I would definitely stay again and highly recommend Martin as a host and his awesome former synagogue!

I used Martin's townhouse for a media event in April. The house is spectacular and looks the same, if not better, than it does in photos. Martin was very accommodating and let us do multiple walk-throughs prior to the event. He worked seamlessly with our caterer to ensure that we pulled our event off exactly how we wanted it. The East Village location is great and has a more neighborhood-y vibe. I would recommend staying at Martin's place if you are coming to NYC or planning a dinner party.

I split my time between New York City and Aspen, Colorado So when I'm not in one, others are welcome to stay at one of my homes.

Both places are great fun, great neighbors and great local feeling.
