Meticulously renovated Historic Greenwich Village Townhouse. Located on one of the most coveted tree-lined townhouse rows in central Greenwich Village, between the 'Gold Coast' and the West Village, this gracious sun-filled townhouse with privacy and views has been painstakingly and intelligently re-built and designed for the 21st Century in a contemporary classic style by architect Wayne Turett and master builder, the Ascend Group. Originally constructed in 1905, this recently completed almost 23 foot wide imposing Greek Revival home was gutted to the core with every floor re-calibrated to maximize ceiling heights. Every imaginable detail has been considered in this renovation, including brand new high-tech mechanical systems that include sophisticated AV systems and pre-wiring, radiant heated flooring, humidification and ducted, zoned central air-conditioning throughout. While grand in scale (almost 7,600 sf interior and 2,000sf exterior) each room has been elegantly scaled and appointed. The entire house features Greige-infused wide-plank oak flooring and all the floors are connected by a classically stylish sculptural stairway or the centrally located elevator. LAYOUT: CELLAR/ATELIER: This expansive floor with superb ceiling heights approaching 9 ft has been impeccably finished and extends all the way underneath the rear garden. It is flooded with light all day long via three large skylights and features a full bathroom and an exercise facility, but is flexible to accommodate the individual needs of the buyer. A wet bar and two enormous Miele Wine Coolers allow for superb entertaining possibilities. This floor also houses a laundry room (one of two) as well as the brand new, state-of-the-art mechanicals. GARDEN LEVEL: Overlooking the garden that is one of a row of gardens, this floor comprises a superb formal dining room with sensational 13 foot ceilings and north-facing windows. A butlers pantry connects to the large kitchen, impressively fitted with sleek Scavolini cabinetry, honed marble counters and backsplashes, and all Miele appliances. The large eat-in kitchen with a double-height seating area leads to an exquisite south-facing garden (with a full Viking kitchen) that has been beautifully landscaped including a large mature evergreen tree that extends the full height of the house providing un-paralleled privacy. This floor has an inviting powder room and may also be accessed from the street via an entrance under the stoop. PARLOR LEVEL: Ascend the fully restored front stoop that leads to the main entrance with its welcoming foyer. An elegant entry vestibule has been created with an architectural glass wall divider. Two large living room areas s are separated by a service hall that houses a wet bar and a chic powder room. The south-facing main living room overlooks the garden and features a large fireplace with a splendid marble mantle. THIRD LEVEL - MASTER BEDROOM FLOOR: This entire floor has been dedicated to the Master Suite, comprising a grandly scaled bedroom with a limestone-clad fireplace, three large closets and an enormous en suite marble bathroom with a rim-flow soaking tub, a massive shower enclosure with steamer and overhead shower and huge counters with two sinks. The views from this floor are unusually appealing: north down Gay Street and South over the enchanting garden. There is an adjoining study or dressing room. FOURTH LEVEL: This floor comprises a large family room/bedroom suite to the rear with an enormous terrace overlooking the garden. Two additional bedrooms are located to the front one with an en suite marble bathroom. FIFTH LEVEL: This floor comprises one large bedroom suite and two smaller bedrooms and a bathroom as well as a laundry room, expertly outfitted with an abundance of storage including a sink. PENTHOUSE LEVEL: This townhouse is unusual in that it is flooded with light and boasts wonderful views: the large roof terrace, perfect for entertaining with a full Viking outdoor kitchen, is no exception with views from the Empire State Building extending all the way down to the World Trade Center over low-lying Greenwich Village buildings. Grand, without being intimidating, this remarkable house represents a unique opportunity to combine the very best attributes and features for a gracious lifestyle: superb interior space with lofty proportions, magnificent outdoor space, exceptional finishes and detailing and a prized location in the heart of Downtown's most desired neighborhood: All of this turn-key ready for immediate occupancy.
