Originally a two-family built in 1899, this five bedroom, two-and-a-half bathroom townhouse with sleek home office at the garden level office blends meticulously restored historic details with modern luxury. The home was impeccably restored by the homeowners, both acclaimed in their artistic fields of fashion and photography, together with their acclaimed architect Neil Logan. What was old, special and valuable has been conserved and is now wrapped in a clean, modernist aesthetic. At 18 feet wide, this home is located on a non-landmarked, tree-lined block in Murray Hill and has additional FAR, so in theory and depending on zoning additions to the home are possible for the buyer looking to expand.
At the parlor level, two wood burning fireplaces with original mantles anchor the living and dining spaces which are connected by a custom-designed Boffi kitchen. The kitchen also features a Miele oven, Subzero fridge, Gaggenau range top and a Miele dishwasher. This parlor level boasts over 11-foot ceilings with heightened entryways and elegant framing. This floor opens out to the landscaped garden perfect for entertaining in the privacy of mature trees and adjacent townhouse gardens.
The second floor is configured with a master bedroom overlooking the garden and another sunny south-facing bedroom, both with original wood burning fireplaces. This floor also has a large custom-designed bath clad in limestone. The top floor features original tin ceilings and a beautifully restored original oval skylight juxtaposed with a new modern skylight counterpart. A large south-facing bedroom as well as two smaller rooms, currently configured as dressing rooms are also on this level. The charming skylit bathroom on this level features a handmade limestone sink also designed by Neil Logan. The entire home features original pine floors restored by Lothar Cordts and is wired for a Nest home security system.
At the garden level, the renovated office and basement offers an opportunity for buyers looking for the perfect live/work space, or can be converted into an income producing apartment for investors or those looking to offset their costs. Conveniently located within two blocks of both Fairway and Trader Joe's, less than three blocks to the six train and surrounded by the culinary refinements that both Gramercy and Flatiron have to offer.
