Newly Built 6-story Murray Hill Townhouse For Rent
Offered for rent is a 8,825 square foot newly rebuilt 6-story townhouse on a lovely Murray Hill block.
Now on the market after a multi-year renovation and complete re-build, the resulting home has a bright and modern feel throughout its 6-bedrooms and two full floors of open and airy entertaining space. Upgrades and modern conveniences include central air conditioning, an elevator serving all floors, integrated audio/speakers in numerous rooms, and several rooms with bright and open corner exposures.
Entered at Street level, the garden floor contains an open foyer and tiled entryway which blends into a large reception area on the south side of the house. There is a large wood paneled center console in the middle of the floor containing a coat closet, hidden staircase to the cellar, elevator, and powder room. In the rear of the house is a large dining room or informal living room with a full wet bar, large wine refrigerator, and French doors opening onto the planted garden.
Upstairs from the reception area is the grand entertaining and public space of the house; a by foot south-facing living space with a sleek floor-to-ceiling hearth and unique bay window overlooking the neighboring brownstones. With foot ceilings, this room is prime to serve as a backdrop for an art or furniture collection of any style. On the north side is a large and bright eat-in kitchen in modern white lacquer with a plethora of convenient features. Kitchen appointments include two deep-basin sinks with Dornbracht hardware, a vented Wolf 6-Burner range with griddle, Miele ovens and dishwasher, as well as large paneled Sub-Zero refrigerator, freezer, and wine cooler. There is also an additional powder room on the parlor floor.

The third floor serves as a large full floor master suite with a south facing bedroom with a wood burning fireplace, a six-fixture master bath including a separate water closet, over SF of walk-in closet space, and a double-exposure den or library opposite the bedroom.

Above the master suite on the fourth floor there are two large bedrooms, each with walk-in closets and en-suite bathrooms. In the center is an open square foot windowed living area which can serve as an additional living space, TV or homework area.
On the fifth floor, there are two more bedrooms, each of which have generously sized terraces, one facing south and one one large wrap terrace facing north with open views of the Midtown skyline and Chrysler building. The northern bedroom has a lovely corner exposure with a wall of windows, and could also serve as a nice home office or den. Both bedrooms on this floor share a windowed full bathroom.
