This beautiful historic townhouse was originally constructed in 1899, and is one of the few houses that fronts directly onto Charles Schurz Park, gracing every floor with divine views on one of the loveliest Parks in Manhattan. This charming, red-brick townhouse underwent an extensive two-year renovation and restoration, preserving the historic character of the property while enhancing it with modern luxuries and all new systems.
One enters this spacious 18' wide townhouse through a gracious, double-doored vestibule, which opens into a bright and expansive living & dining room on the parlor floor with 11' ceilings and enormous windows showcasing the park. There is a second entrance on the garden level, which boasts a beautifully outfitted eat-in kitchen with French doors opening to the delightful garden, as well as a full-bathroom, laundry room and multiple closets. The upper two floors provide three spacious bedrooms and a study with two spa-like bathrooms and 10' ceilings with open and bright exposures.
Meticulously designed in every way, the house features grand ceilings throughout, bespoke herringbone floors, top of the line kitchen and appliances, luxurious spa baths with a soaking tub, rain showers and heated floors, artfully designed lighting with Artemide fixtures and LED blubs, Bose speakers/sound, and ample storage with custom fitted closets. This incredibly energy efficient house has all new electrical, plumbing and HVAC systems.
Located in the coveted Henderson Place Historic District this tree lined block of Victorian Style homes provides unobstructed views of Carl Schurz Park, Gracie Mansion and the East River beyond.
