Contract Signed

After an extensive and thoughtful renovation, this single family townhouse with elevator is in pristine condition in a prime location. Exceptional care was taken to preserve the historic character of this beautiful home while incorporating every modern luxury. Walnut floors, central air conditioning, Crestron lighting, and integrated audio compliment the high ceilings and period moldings throughout this rare masterpiece. Across from Marcus Garvey Park and ideally situated in the Mount Morris Park Historic District, this picturesque location is convenient to transit and celebrated dining destinations, including Minton's Playhouse and Michelin-starred Sushi Inoue, as well as the new Whole Foods Market scheduled to open this summer.

Garden Floor: The eat-in kitchen is truly the heart of the home, and it adjoins the verdant south-facing garden with attractive decking for al fresco dining. The eight foot central island with stainless steel counter top offers impressive prep space with a lovely view through glass doors to the garden. Stainless steel appliances include double Gaggenau ovens, five burner vented Gaggenau gas range, Sub-Zero refrigerator and Bosch dishwasher. Radiant floor heating emanates from the attractive herringbone Ann Sacks tile. Additional amenities on this level include a private office, walk-in pantry, and powder room, while the front room is currently used as a large media room.

Parlor Floor: Enter up the elegant stoop to the ornate parlor floor, with charming moldings and ceilings soaring over 11 feet in height. The front parlor is currently used as a welcoming living room, and down the hall, the stunning formal dining room is accented by elaborate moldings and two large windows facing south. Next to the dining room, the butler's kitchen makes entertaining a dream, with teak counter tops, Gaggenau dishwasher, Sub-Zero wine refrigerator, Sub-Zero under counter refrigerator, an electric range with convection oven and warming drawer, and a dual convection oven/microwave. A powder room for guests and a walk-in coat closet complete this level.

Third Floor: Take the elevator or ascend the graceful staircase to the serene master suite, with three sun flooded south-facing windows, delicate moldings, and a walk-through closet leading to the en-suite marble bathroom with rain shower. The spacious front bedroom also has a full bath en-suite with a soaking tub and marble surround.

Fourth Floor: Crowned with a skylight, the sunny fourth level encompasses the third and fourth bedrooms, each with 10 foot ceilings, bright exposures, custom closets including dressing areas with pocket doors, and full en-suite baths with soaking tubs and marble surrounds.

Basement: Accessible via elevator or the central stair, this level accommodates the large laundry room, building mechanicals, and extensive storage space.
