A one-of-a-kind opportunity to own a special slice of heaven AND history in NYC, with a coveted key to Gramercy Park and a private backyard garden haven, in an historic landmark townhouse! This stunning 2-bedroom, 2-bath apartment on the first floor of a stately 1850s, 27 ft-wide prewar home - now an upscale boutique co-op - is a site to behold with its modern refinements and original detailing. No expense has been spared in the meticulous renovation of this spectacular residence with northern and southern exposures, 2 gas fireplaces, LV hardwood flooring, central air and heat, plus a built-in Sonos surround-sound speaker system throughout the living space and outdoor garden. The grand living/dining area beautifully blends the old and new, and is complemented by high ceilings, original moldings, an elegant marble fireplace mantle and French doors that lead to the sun-drenched planted garden. Entertaining is seamless with a sleekly-designed open chef's kitchen graced by custom cabinetry, a La Cornue stove, Subzero fridge and wine-cooler, gorgeous honed granite countertops, and generous counter/cabinet space. The split bedroom layout allows for complete privacy and flexibility, with the master bedroom directly facing Gramercy Park and the second bedroom overlooking the garden. Other highlights include 2 spa-like bathrooms complete with custom Ann Sacks tile work, and a convenient full-size Bosch stackable washer/dryer in a separate laundry closet. Residents enjoy low maintenance, extra basement storage and a bike room. The allure of living here is made even greater with a prime Gramercy Park South address. You'll not only have access to the magical Gramercy Park, but to the many stores, restaurants and transportation options around you in this highly sought-after neighborhood.
