West 12th Street - $28,000,000
Ideally located on West 12th Street between 5th & 6th Avenues, this 21' wide brownstone is built 99' deep on a 103' lot. An extension on the Southern portion of the house allows abundant natural sunlight in and allows for unique private outdoor space on four different levels. Originally built in 1860, this house has been transformed by architect Steven Harris into one of the most elegant townhouses available in the Village. The Italianate facade has a high stoop entrance leading to the parlor level as well as a separate garden entrance below.
The house has six floors and a fully finished basement encompassing approximately 8300 interior square feet. There is an additional 2000 square feet of outdoor space spread amongst 5 terraces. A hydraulic elevator services the basement to the 5th floor. The house has 7 working fireplaces, central air conditioning, built-in surround sound, a humidification system, and Japanese soak tub on the roof terrace.
Basement: This floor has a large storage closet, laundry room, and gym.
Garden Level: Directly off the garden entrance is an office with en-suite bath and wet-bar; this room could easily function as a staff apartment or in-law suite. A coat closet and hallway lead to the den, which features a full bath adjacent and a French door leading to the patio. Beyond the den is the South, East, and West facing chef's kitchen. Generous marble counter space, double sinks, and top-of-the-line appliances including a built-in Espresso machine, line the walls. A patio for outdoor dining is positioned between the den and kitchen enjoying beautiful Eastern exposure.
The Parlor Floor: A private vestibule opens into an elegant dining room with a working fireplace and floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking W. 12th Street. A pass-way leads to the living room, which features soaring ceilings and fireplace. Beyond the living room is the sunroom, which features South, East, and West exposures. A back stair leads from this floor down to the garden level and up to the Master suite on the third floor. A powder room and coat closet complete this floor.
Third Floor: The Master sitting room with custom built-ins on either side of the fireplace faces North and connects to the 5-fixture marble bathroom and walk-in closet. The South facing Master bedroom has a fireplace and private landscaped patio surrounded by greenery.
Fourth Floor: Two private bedroom suites, each with a working fireplace, a large walk-in closet, and private bath. The North facing bedroom has a quaint study facing W 12th Street. The South facing bedroom has a private terrace.
Fifth Floor: Two bedroom suites, one of which is currently used as a pilates studio. Each bedroom has large closets and en-suite bathrooms. There is also a washer/dryer and wet-bar on this floor.
Sixth Floor/Roof: A solarium with working fireplace sits in the middle of the top floor flanked by a North and South facing terrace. The South facing terrace enjoys open views of the Freedom Tower and lush greenery. Setback from neighbors, the Japanese soak tub and outdoor shower enjoy privacy. The setback North facing terrace has a quintessential Village exposure.
