For Sale $25,000,000
Tucked snuggly away on a tree-lined street for more than 100 years, this
quintessential New York City townhouse possesses the rare combination of charm
and versatility that is the dream of any home buyer. And although it wears an
unassuming mask of simple limestone, the home behind it is filled with a
cavalcade of attributes both enticing and unexpected.
The building holds 4 units and rises 6 stories, but it has 7 separate levels
of living space. Spread across those levels are 8 bathrooms (7 full and 2
half-baths), 8 bedrooms, 4 kitchens (each one on a different floor), 9 wood
burning fireplaces, a bar, an outdoor garden, and 2 roof decks.
Starting at the bottom, the basement contains a large bedroom with its own
closet, an attached half-bathroom, and a washer/dryer. The garden level,
perfect for entertaining, has a street-side recreation room, 1 half-bathroom,
a bar, 2 fireplaces, and an open-concept kitchen/living room/dining room that
flows into a brick-walled garden out back. The parlor level consists of a pair
of split-winged bedrooms, each with its own full bathroom, closet space, and
fireplace. The third and fourth levels are apartments all their own. The third
features a spacious master bedroom with a large closet, 1 full bathroom, 2
fireplaces, and a cozy living/dining area anchored by a bay window with a view
of the street. The fourth is comprised of 3 small bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms,
2 fireplaces, and a shared living room/dining room. Both the third and fourth
levels are equipped with their own galley-style kitchen.
Designed with a thought for contemporary flare, the fifth level boasts a
kitchen/dining room/living room that flows openly across grey hardwood floors.
It has 1 fireplace and 1 full bathroom with a separate shower and bathtub. The
kitchen features white lacquer cabinets, stainless steel appliances, and a
sleek countertop and backsplash. Up a flight of floating stairs and nestled
between a brace of outdoor decks, the rooftop bedroom comes with its own
closet space and a full bathroom with clean, white-tiled walls and a double
vanity sink. While both can be considered typical of city living, each roof
deck has a unique atmosphere. With a surround of rising buildings, the north-
facing deck confers upon its dwellers a courtyard-like feeling. Given the
extra buffer the street and a low-lying neighbor, the south-facing deck enjoys
an open view of other rooftops and the local skyline.
