EAST VILLAGE — Here's your chance to take up residence in a historic synagogue, complete with stained-glass windows.

The luxury condominiums housed in the Adas Yisroel Anshe Meseritz synagogue at 415 E. 6th St. have officially hit the market, with prices ranging from $2.95 million all the way up to $4.395 million for the two-floor penthouse that crowns the development.

After initially putting the building's three condo units on the market in December 2015, the developer yanked the listings soon after, deciding to wait until the units were ready for habitation. The units reached completion within the past week and once again hit the market on Sept. 6, according to developer East River Partners, revealing all-new photographs of the sprawling penthouse.

“Today’s sophisticated and serious buyers move quickly and prefer to see the finished product,” said East River Partners co-founder Joseph Cohen. “Now that the building is completed, prospective buyers can walk in the lobby and see the apartments and finishes that are common to all three residences which are almost ready for immediate occupancy.”

Condos inside the 106-year-old limestone structure, located within the East Village Historic District, incorporate details from the historic synagogue. The second and third-floor units include the original stained-glass windows, as well as original copper double-entry doors, restored with glass cut-outs, to let light stream into the living rooms. 

The synagogue's congregation had inked a deal with developer East River Partners LLC that has allowed it to retain the ground floor and basement levels while handing over the upper levels for residential units. As part of the roughly million-dollar deal, the developer agreed to renovate the synagogue space, which is expected to reach completion in October, according to a spokeswoman.
