This elegant home has been totally renovated to the highest standard and is in mint condition. Grand scale rooms, excellent ceiling heights on every level, and wonderful light throughout are just a few of the special features that characterize this stunning property, which is designed for quiet, intimate enjoyment or large-scale entertaining. At four stories, with a high-speed elevator that services all floors, the house is 20 feet wide and approximately 5,350 square feet above grade, with a 1,300 square foot basement, and features 5 bedrooms, 4 full and 2 half baths.

A planted, gated forecourt provides privacy from the street. Enter the home through the vestibule and enjoy sight lines all the way to the garden through the wall of windows and doors framed in blackened steel which are present on the first 2 floors, flooding the home with light. The eat-in chef's kitchen has a breakfast area with banquette seating and 3 separate work areas furnished with top-of-the-line appliances including 3 sinks, 3 ovens, 2 dishwashers, professional grade stove and industrial strength hood vented to the outside, warming drawer, steamer, icemaker and wine cooler.

Enjoy your morning coffee, host intimate dinners, or entertain lavishly in the dining room, which accommodates 25 for dinner or 50 for a seated fundraiser. The dining room features a stunning stenciled floor, and lovely built- in cabinets for ample storage. Step out to the beautifully landscaped garden, which feels like an extension of the room and is a true oasis in the city designed by Robin Key Landscape Architects. A powder room completes this level.

A grand, open landing greets you as you arrive on the parlor floor. This central area is like a room unto itself, with light coming in from the huge skylight above, and provides excellent entertaining flow between the living room to the north, and the library to the south. An 8' wet bar with ample storage and serving area is cleverly hidden behind a wall of paneling. The living room features 12'2' ceilings, a gas fireplace and a lovely oval lot line window on the eastern wall, the perfect location from which to relax on a chaise and morning sun. The more intimate library/ TV room is lined with book shelves and features tall south facing windows and a fireplace. There is a powder room on this level as well.

The serene primary bedroom suite on the third floor features a wall of windows overlooking the garden, decorative fireplace, 2 dressing rooms (with additional closets) and 2 side by side full bathrooms which connect the north bedroom with the south sitting room (or 5th bedroom).

The fourth floor features 3 bedrooms, one with bath en-suite and the other 2 which share a bath. A large laundry room and ample storage is located on this floor as well. A staircase leads to the roof deck with lovely views of the neighborhood.

The basement level houses a full gym, mechanicals, storage and a fabulous, temperature controlled wine cellar which holds approximately 1,000 bottles.

The house is equipped with multi-zoned central AC, security system, and motorized blackout shades in the primary bedroom.
