A one-of-a-kind townhouse masterpiece in the heart of the West Village was expertly crafted and designed with a fusion of elegance, high artistic style, and modern comforts. This glamorous home offers a contemporary take on a traditional townhouse, combining the best craftsmanship and high quality details with modern day luxuries. No detail was overlooked when designing this turn-key home which is spread over four floors of living space, garden and parlor level outdoor spaces, plus a finished cellar and six restored wood burning fireplaces.
Upon entry, one is captivated by the pristinely restored façade of this 21-foot-wide, approximately 4,500 square foot home located across from Jackson Square Park at the perfect crossroads of prime West Village blocks. The classic front stoop with its bright red front door, an exact replica of the original from 1855, leads to an intimate entry vestibule complete with antique Argentine French style doors. The parlor level presents a beautifully double scaled living room with two Carrera wrapped wood burning fire places and access to an outdoor terrace featuring walkable glass, and fully equipped with irrigation and sound systems.
The garden level, also accessible a via blue stone covered street entrance, is illuminated by four oversized skylights, and features an impressive kitchen boasting a Wolf 6 burner stove plus grill and vented oven, Subzero refrigerator, Wolf microwave and Miele dishwasher. Granite countertops and custom tiled backsplash complete the kitchen of any chef's dreams. The wall of floor to ceiling glass doors leads onto the private garden space with custom wind and light features, hand laid Brussels stones and a copper drain. The charming fountain and lush landscaping create the perfect backyard setting. This level also features a wood burning fire place, two separate dining areas and a guest bedroom suite with an antique claw foot soaking tub, and a powder room.
The third and fourth floor bedroom levels are accessed via a restored staircase and vintage banisters sourced from New York's famed Plaza Hotel. The sumptuous master suite occupies the entire third level and is flooded with sunlight via brand new large windows from three exposures, southern, northern and eastern thanks to a former horse path flanking the house and allowing for additional air and light. A wood burning fireplace, custom outfitted dressing room / walk-in closet and lavish master bathroom with a copper soaking tub and stall shower complete this floor.
The fourth floor level is currently configured as one bedroom, one full bathroom with a large scale living area, but could easily be reconfigured to accommodate another bedroom or two. The full bath is well-appointed with an antique earthenware soaking tub from the 1920s, Nemo glass tiles, Duravit toilet and Hansgrohe fixtures (all throughout) in the shower. Beamed ceilings, two wood burning fireplaces and three exposures round out this sun filled top floor.
The fully finished basement houses ample storage, full sized vented LG washer/dryer, and brand new mechanicals and steel support beams. The detailed finishes throughout the house include antique door knobs and hinges, abundant art walls, 5-inch-wide white oak water coil radiant heated floors, multi-zone air conditioning, water purification system, Sonos-controlled surround sound and a security system. In addition, there are approximately 1,476 feet of unused AIR rights remaining. No detail has been spared in this landmark renovation. The entire house has been repointed and reinsulated, and has a brand new top-of-the-line roof. The windows and doors, all replicas of the originals on the front of the house, are all brand new, energy efficient, and double paned. This home is a landmark not only for the city but also for New York State and the national registry.
