Feast your eyes on these gorgeous photos and imagine yourself living and entertaining in these six floors of clean lines, dramatic ceiling height, and luxurious finishes. Extraordinary care was taken to renovate from the inside out - including a complete facade and stoop restoration - and maximize flow for modern living. The custom-built specifications produced more than 7,000 square feet of living space with multiple entertaining areas, four private bedroom suites, and a unique master duplex.
Highlights such as double-height ceilings and walls of windows in both the living room and master duplex are beyond impressive. Decorative finishes such as century-old reclaimed wood, exposed brick, and glass railings create a sense of character and balance. The townhouse also boasts a gourmet kitchen, an incredible integrated Smart Home system, and four prized outdoor spaces that include a bluestone garden, parlour terrace, fifth floor balcony, and a massive roof deck. No detail has been overlooked in this six-year renovation. The owners manual alone has 170 paged of exacting specifications.
Priced to compete and located steps from top-tier restaurants, Broadway theatres, and De Witt Clinton park, the mansion is a rare find. A comparable townhouse on the nearby Upper West Side would easily fetch 40% more.
This townhouse level has an open floorplan, and is uniquely designed for informal entertaining. The garden front hosts a game room and opens to a grand secondary central kitchen that is equipped with Viking appliances, beer taps, soda gun, and LED lighting to set the mood. The rear of the floor holds a family room that will delight movie watchers and video gamers with its 85 Dolby surround sound television. A wall of sliding glass doors provides access to the amazing south-facing garden.
Paved with bluestones and accentuated by a large arbour, this outdoor space is second-to-none. There is also a powder room on the garden level.
Open the front door to reveal an expansive and bright parlour floor. Just to the left of the entrance lies a dining area that is welcoming and flexible for intimate dinner parties or large gatherings. Straight ahead is a gourmet kitchen complete with Bertazzoni appliances and a marble island. The center of the floor also contains a powder room.
Proceed to the rear of the parlour into the double-height living room. This space not only showcases a wall of glass windows, but also celebrates the 22 elevated ceiling by extending a reclaimed wood accent along the full height of the fireplace, while also making use of inset LED lighting in the coffered panels. The tall blank walls and light in this room are sure to be the envy of any modern art collector. Finally, two sets of glass doors in the living room lead to a magnificent bluestone terrace that has stairs to access the garden below.
Third Floor Mezzanine:
Ascend the sleek staircase to the Mezzanine to bask in the magnificent space and unparalleled views the double-height ceiling creates on this level. Open and sun-filled, the Mezzanine is ideal for an informal sitting area or library. Sharing this floor is the first of four bedroom suites. Containing a spacious front bedroom with three large windows, the suite also has a walk-in closet and a marble tiled full bathroom.
This floor hosts two more private bedroom suites as well as a central laundry room.
Fifth and Sixth Floor Master Duplex:
The fifth floor front is another spacious bedroom suite in the same style as the lower floors. Proceed to the rear of the fifth floor to enter the Master Duplex.
The Master Duplex is a stunning display of scale and luxury. Featuring another double-height ceiling and wall of windows, the rear bedroom is flooded with natural light and has a balcony with views of both the garden and Midtown skyline. In addition to the master bedroom, the fifth floor accommodates an extra-large walk-in closet measuring almost 300 square feet and a gracious bathroom with radiant floor heating, a soaking tub, double vanity, and large stall with rain shower heads. A spiral staircase links the bedroom with the second level of the duplex. Boasting a fireplace, wet bar, and half-bath, this top floor can serve as a living room or home office and is a private retreat all on its own. There is also access to a huge roof deck with striking Manhattan views.
This floor is configured to maximize efficiency of the mechanicals, and allow for storage or a possible wine cellar. In addition to the boiler and hydraulic elevator rooms, there is a commercial-grade water booster that provides magnificent pressure throughout the townhouse. There is also a separate electrical panel that supplies a 30K watt back-up generator.
