Perched facing south in arguably the most desirable part of the West Village, this newly renovated, immaculately restored and never-lived-in townhouse designed by Peter Pelsinski of Span-Architecture spans almost 5,000 square feet in size with a fully excavated basement that is equally blessed with natural light. Every detail has been painstakingly considered by the current owners in this highly detailed renovation.
Enter via the gracious stoop stairs to a vestibule entrance leading into the parlor floor. A large, open living room with a chic fireplace and overhead cove lighting greets you, facing north towards the terraced garden that has been beautifully landscaped. An enclosed library reveals itself with ingeniously designed pivoting shelving walls that expose the south-facing windows over 11th Street.
The rear stairs lead you down to the garden floor with double-height ceilings that transport light into the kitchen area, the perfect location for casual entertaining. The kitchen with pantry is superbly appointed with custom millwork, two sets of Sub-Zero/Wolf appliances and honed Arabescato marble countertops. On this level is a below-the-stoop entry as well as a powder room and mud room with extra storage space.
The third floor is dedicated entirely to the master bedroom suite, with an elegant, sunny bedroom facing south featuring a fireplace and a dreamy en-suite statuary Venato marble bathroom with natural daylight, an enormous shower with steam, a deep soaking tub, twin sinks and large balcony. A large walk-in closet separates the bathroom from the bedroom.
The fourth floor houses three bedrooms each with their own closets and two bathrooms, each individually appointed to perfection.
The landscaped roof terrace is a wonderful amenity, with charming views over picturesque Greenwich Village. It is wired for an outdoor television and plumbed for an outdoor kitchen. A large, stainless steel Jacuzzi tub is a bonus feature.
The lowest level has been fully excavated to allow for a screening room/den with a skylight, a gym with even taller (15-foot) ceilings and another skylight, a laundry room, wine cellar and a den with a bathroom.
This magnificent home benefits by all new super-efficient mechanical systems and ducted zoned central HVAC. It is wired for Sonos system (speakers installed throughout the house) and is also fully equipped with an alarm and intercom system.
