Spectacular townhouse in Historic East Village that was formerly a synagogue! One of the city's last tenement Shuls, now a chic landmarked building, this former synagogue was brilliantly transformed into a magnificent home in 2005 by world-famous designers from the Ian Shrager Hotels – earning recognition in Architectural Record for its extraordinary transformation, and attracting the likes of press, politicians and entertainment figures. Yours to rent is the exquisite result of their top-of-the-line gut renovation: an immaculately-designed, 3 bedroom (possible 4), 2.5 bath fourplex that boasts 3 wonderful outdoor terraces, the finest finishes and fixtures, plus the most advanced automated central audio/visual, lighting, HVAC and integrated security systems. Other distinctive features that make this sun-drenched residence such a unique work of art are its custom-made windows that are exact replicas of when the building was a synagogue (including the Star of David!), and luxurious touches that include Brazilian hardwood cherry floors, hand-poured Brazililan glass mosaic tiles by Vidrotil, beautiful Wenge wood paneling, radiant floor heating, floor-to-ceiling steel cased windows and doors (the list goes on).
Entertaining is anyone's dream in the dramatic living area with 22' cathedral ceilings, floor-to-ceiling walls of restored and repointed exposed brick (east) and Wenge wood paneling (west), and a Cantilever balcony with a built-in projector for showcasing art. The ultimate open chef's kitchen wows you with its Italian granite counters, 20' island, floor-to-ceiling custom-built Wenge cabinets, Thermadore double ovens and separate cook top with grill, Sub-Zero main refrigerator plus 2 extra fridges in the island, Bosch dishwasher and separate Fisher Paykel double-drawer dishwasher, built-in temperature/humidity-controlled wine cooler. From the elegant dining area with the original restored 19th Century backlit Star of David sits a rear dining terrace beyond a wall of glass and steel windows and doors.
On the 3rd level, relax in the gorgeous library with custom-built floor-to-ceiling Wenge wood bookshelves, an Italian marble fireplace and a wet sink/wet bar with plumbing. Two guest bedrooms with custom wall-size closets and built-in stereo speakers ensure comfort and privacy. The 4th story presents a special floor-to-ceiling glass hallway and secluded master bedroom with a custom-built working fireplace, huge walk-in closet, and opulent master bath with an oversized Jacuzzi tub, walk-in shower with steam unit, rain shower, waterfall and separate hand-held shower.
