Built in 1851, this home has been lovingly restored over the past decade by one of New York’s premier design teams. A meticulous renovation both in quality and design that culminated in what can only be described as a jawdropping masterpiece. Crossing over from Stuyvesant Square Park you ascend the steps of this recently restored Late-Georgian brownstone into another time. Enter through beveled glass doors into the foyer with basket weave Turkish marble floors and a welcoming center staircase. A country style kitchen with reclaimed terra cotta tiles from French manor homes adorn the floors, while a subway tiled kitchen with thick Calcutta marble counter tops awaits the chef in you. The kitchen opens up into a family dining area where you can walk through the French doors to the garden below, an oasis planted with herbs, flowers and bathed in sunlight.
The parlor floor showcases the open staircase with a grand hallway adjoinedby a formal dining area with 10' French doors to one of four Juliet balconies. A formal seating area with bay window views of the park and a marble fireplace offers the perfect setting for you and your guests to retire after a beautiful dinner under a Royere chandelier. The third floor is your owner’s suite with a romantic bedroom and adjoining boudoir. The en-suite bath has a vintage double sink, Waterworks fixtures, and a cove plastered ceiling. The fourth floor finishes with two bedrooms and bathroom with a subway tiled shower lit by streaming daylight from leaded skylights 20' above. Grab the rope banister up to your private rooftop patio and enjoy a glass of wine while admiring the beautiful parks below and the downtown Manhattan skyline. Down to the smallest detail, from Von Morris nickel egg-hinges, to 12" moldings and pulled plastered details, you will quickly discover that everything was carefully considered in the restoration of this gorgeous home.
