The 1855 Anglo-Italianate south-facing single-family house with its newly re-made classic brownstone facade offers the buyer an exceptional opportunity to redesign the interior of an historic structure; repurposing the house to custom-fit an individual lifestyle. The exclusive residential old New York neighborhood, between Park Avenue and Irving Place is around the corner from the coveted Gramercy Park, the focal point of the area. So too, its half-block proximity from the designated “Block Beautiful” on 19th Street between Irving Place and Third Avenue sets 111 East 19th Street in the most desirable location. The neighborhood is further enhanced by the finest restaurants (the reputable Union Square Cafe has newly relocated on the corner of 19th and Park Avenue), the historic National Arts and Players Clubs on the Park, the Union Square Green Market, as well as the convenience of mass transportation, all contribute to the allure of the area.
Approved architectural plans, intricately detailed are included with the sale. The ready-to-go plans provide access and immediacy to the re-building, and re-make of the classic design quality of the house. Much thought and consultation went into the plans, the owner’s deep desire to get the house back as much as possible to its original vision. Notwithstanding, a buyer can follow the plans to a tee, pick and choose or come up with an entirely unique conception. The sale also includes magnificent light fixtures in sync with the over all vision of the house. An inventory of furnishings already selected and bought by the owner will be made available.
The following work has been completed: total demolition, environmental remediation, new brownstone facade in sync with original facade, custom Marvin windows installed throughout the house, front door, new steel trusses for all floors, new roof, rear facade brick work has been restored and tuck-pointed, elevator-opening provisioned on all five floors. The rear wall on the parlor floor has been replaced by a casement window-wall curtain, providing light and atmosphere that opens up to the renovated terrace and restored wood enclosure; a skylight has been installed on terrace floor allowing light into the lower level. Also, it is important to note that this particular block is not landmarked, and therefore has more flexibility with less restrictions as a landmarked block in terms of construction and renovation.
