Built in the mid 1800s, this enchanting, 28’ wide, Anglo-Italianate style townhouse faces Stuyvesant Square Park in a beautiful historic district of Gramercy. The three-bay facade with full-length, arched windows and cast-iron balconies makes an impression of stately elegance before even walking through the door.
This spacious, primarily single-family home has four bedrooms and three full and two half baths. Renovated for modern townhouse living while preserving the grandeur of its original details, this townhouse has it all. Hardwood floors, high ceilings exceeding 15’ in some rooms, and original moldings are throughout. There are five fireplaces, one of which, on the garden level, is wood burning. The Moravian tile and marble of the fireplaces, the custom designed staircase and skylight, arched doorways, and ornate Alabaster and art-deco chandeliers add character on every floor. Make music in the lower level music room or create a home office with a separate street exit. There is also a media room with a door to the rear garden and potential wine cellar. The CliveChristian kitchen has an office area and garden access and views. There are Czech & Speake fixtures, a Viking gas stove, pine cabinets, subzero fridge, and limestone countertops. The master bedroom has an en suite bathroom, walk in closet, and terrace. The third floor features three sizable bedrooms as well as a sitting room that could be converted in to an additional bedroom. Enjoy beautiful views of the park and superb light through over-sized, newly insulated, arched windows. In addition to the master bedroom terrace, other outdoor spaces include a front garden and a rear patio and sizable garden with surrounding ivy-covered walls creating privacy and tranquility. There is an updated heating and air system, new plumbing, sprinkler system, and two washer dryers. There is an elevator with access to every floor.
