Crowned by a private 1,521 square-foot roof terrace, this dramatic penthouse counts among Gramercy Park’s most exceptional residences. Perched atop a handsome 1877 Gothic Revival landmark in the Stuyvesant Square Historic District, this spectacular 2,200 square foot 3-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom home is defined by its uncommon dramatic elements. Anchored by the great room’s wood-burning fireplace, this grand, south-facing space enjoys abundant light and tranquil views of neighboring Stuyvesant Square Park. Soaring 13-foot ceilings typify the Victorian proportions of the main living area, and sunshine cascades from a towering 20-foot atrium onto the chef’s kitchen below, which boasts custom Poggenpohl cabinetry and Viking appliances. Each of the three spacious bedrooms offers an exquisitely appointed en-suite bath and large, custom-fitted closets. The private wing is separated by an elegant formal gallery, which offers increased privacy and convenient access to the home’s laundry area. Connected to the interior by a floating staircase is the lushly landscaped private terrace. Specimen plantings and thoughtfully imagined entertaining areas punctuate this urban oasis, designed as a three-season sanctuary. The terrace is equipped with an integrated audio system, irrigation, lighting, a gas barbecue, and an outdoor shower. Historic architectural views abound, dominated by the verdant hues of the park below.

Landmark 17 is a boutique condominium of just thirteen luxury residences. Fully renovated in 2006, this pet-friendly building is attended by a part-time doorman.

What’s New: Tastefully Tribeca

Size: 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms
Asking: $3,750,000
Listed by: Tom Postilio and Mickey Conlon

Available for the first time in over 40 years, this architecturally rich and rare house at 37 Harrison Street (originally 327 Washington Street) retains a remarkable abundance of its original detail. Currently configured with a 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom layout, this 21-foot wide structure stretches over three sun-drenched floors, plus an English basement with exposed stone walls, front and rear entrances, and 13′ 6″ ceilings. Constructed in brick in a Flemish bond pattern, this corner house enjoys a craftsman-like attention to detail and scale and as one of the city’s finest extant examples of the Federal Style. It features six wood-burning fireplaces, soaring ceilings with exposed beams and original arched dormers. Its private garden adjoins an enclave of similarly designed houses connected by their historical pedigree and unlikely survival. Linked by a cobblestone street that once faced the river, the entire row was converted for warehouse use in the 19th century as the commercial activities of the Washington Market expanded northward, leaving no more than a handful of the original townhouses.

Built in 1828 and landmarked in 1969, the Wilson Hunt House is one of a group of nine Federal houses whose scale and profile exist nowhere else in New York City. Located on a site that was once the well-known farm of Annetje Jans, to whom it was granted in 1636 by Dutch Director General, Van Twiller, the area surrounding the house has evolved a bit over the last several centuries. Its farms and breweries long gone, the quaint neighborhood now offers access to some of the city’s finest shops, restaurants, and 21st century conveniences.
