Feast your eyes on
these gorgeous photos and imagine yourself living and entertaining in this 25'
wide mansion featuring six floors of clean lines, dramatic ceiling height, and
luxurious finishes. Extraordinary care was taken to renovate from the inside
out - including a complete façade 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 owner’s 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.
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

more private bedroom suites as well as a central laundry room.
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.
