This tri-level 2-bedroom maisonette at the City's most peaceful and beautiful cul-de-sac, offers a way of life that's exceptionally rare in Manhattan: The privacy of townhouse living with full benefits of white-glove building services. Private front door opens onto Beekman Place, steps from Peter Detmold Park and Dog Run overlooking the East River. The building is pet friendly and allows pied-a-terre residents. Exclusive, quiet Beekman Place is patrolled by private security service-another rare benefit of this special property. Current owners of the maisonette spared no expense to enliven its original charm and character through a total renovation that included new plumbing and electrical systems and new dual-zone A/C system. Oak flooring was restored and marble flooring added, along with solid core mahogany doors with brass hardware; 2 full marble bathrooms; custom built-in cabinets, book and display cases; window seats; crown and base custom moldings, and plaster walls throughout. Every room is windowed, and all south-facing casement windows on Floors 1 and 2 give abundant sunlight all day and unobstructed views of picturesque Beekman Place. Living room, one step down from entry vestibule and foyer, has antique Irish wood mantle adorning gas fireplace easily converted back to wood-burning. Formal dining room seats 8. Windowed kitchen has Sub Zero, Wolf, and Miele appliances. Stair case up from entry foyer to Primary Bedroom and bathroom with steam shower and 2nd bedroom, currently used as library, with full bath. Separate stairs down from kitchen lead to lower level staff room, currently finished as a home office, and half bath. Door from lower level leads conveniently to building laundry facilities.
Beekman Mansion Cooperative, built in 1925, is a short walk from quaint shops and fine restaurants of this wonderful midtown neighborhood with easy access to cross-town buses, subways, the FDR Drive, and coming-soon walkway along the river.
