This stunning top floor home is a masterful blend of 19th century townhouse architecture and a thoughtful, modern renovation.
With exposed brick and wood-beamed ceilings ranging in height from 10-12 feet, the living space takes on loft-like proportions. Pre-war details are plentiful and include a wood-burning marble fireplace and original pocket shutters. The natural light in this home is unmatched, with five skylights in addition to three southern-facing windows and a large casement window overlooking the tranquil common garden to the north. The recently renovated kitchen is outfitted with custom European white oak cabinetry, Carrara marble countertops, a Bertazzoni range and Bosch refrigerator and dishwasher. The spacious bathroom features Duravit plumbing with Waterworks fixtures, durable slate flooring and a custom brass shower insert that reflects ambient light from the skylight. The bedroom is also skylit, so you can enjoy clear, starry nights, or utilize the electric shades for a cozier ambiance. The bedroom storage is maximized with custom European white oak floor-to-ceiling closets.
No detail was overlooked in the renovation of this home, from the careful refurbishment of the original pine flooring and windows to the selection of custom light switches. Central air conditioning, a Miele washer and dryer and WAC lighting complete this highly designed home. Currently configured as a one bedroom, this apartment could comfortably accommodate a second bedroom to suit your needs. Roof rights are included with the sale, so the next owner of this one-of-kind home has the opportunity to build a private roof deck with views of downtown and the Freedom Tower (plans available).
