A STAR IS BORN
The most elegant of entryways, defined by 9 feet 5 inch ceilings with exquisite handcrafted plaster moldings and 24 linear feet of crystal chandeliers, sets the stage for the standard of quality and workmanship found throughout this newly completed totally renovated prewar 7 room home.
Wonderful layout, with separation of entertaining spaces as well as a private bedroom wing. The 22 foot East-facing living room is warmly enveloped in wainscoting and coordinating marble topped casework with upper curios and lower storage. At the heart of this bright room is a handsome mantle with marble surround and hearth and an antiqued brick interior that can incorporate an electric fireplace.
The grand 21 foot formal dining room, with open sky views West across beautiful surrounding townhouse gardens, comfortably accommodates fourteen guests. Superb finishes include a dramatic Swarovski crystal chandelier; classically detailed walnut wainscoting and coordinating waterfall edge marble buffets; and two built-in 30 inch Sub-Zero wine refrigerators.
A pocket door off the dining room leads to a casement-windowed chef's kitchen with custom walnut wood cabinetry and quartz countertops, with a designated eat-in area for two. Premier stainless furnishings include double sinks with filtered cold and instant hot; two 24 inch Miele dishwashers; a Sub-Zero 36 inch refrigerator and 36 inch freezer; and, from Wolf, an exterior vented 48 inch six burner with grill gas range with double oven and a 24 inch drawer microwave. Custom millwork incorporates plentiful storage, from deep pot drawers to a large pantry, and a closet with an exterior vented stackable washer and dryer by Whirlpool.
Through a set of French doors off the entrance gallery is a private wing with three sun-filled bedrooms. The East and North-facing corner master enjoys soundproof windows and abundant storage with a wall of closets and a built-out wardrobe. The windowed en suite marble master bath is outfitted with a walnut and marble vanity with double sinks, coordinating walnut built-outs and a deep soaking tub. There are two additional bright bedrooms, with lovely unobstructed views North and West, both customized with useful built-outs, including beds and desks. These two bedrooms have hallway access to a marble bath with a deep soaking tub. Each bath is ensconced in 12x24 inch Carerra marble tiles and has high end finishings from Toto, Robern and Rohl.
Off the dining room is a fourth sun-filled bedroom, currently utilized as a den, with open corner exposures and two walls with walnut built-outs. Beyond a pocket door, the bedroom extends to a coordinating walnut office nook with built-out desk and is adjacent to a windowed Carerra marble bath with glass-enclosed stall shower and period accents, including a console sink and mosaic floor. Concealed from the dining room by a set of French doors, this bathroom also serves as a powder room.
Additional niceties include: new plumbing, electrical, windows, thermostat controlled through wall air conditioning and heat, and lighting, including recessed LEDs; soundproof white oak hardwood floors; marble window sills; Schonbeck Swarovski crystal light fixtures; Baldwin polished nickel door hardware; custom window treatments; and ten ceiling-height closets, of which half are double width. All beds and the kitchen are phone/data/cable-ready and the kitchen and den are wired for surround sound. There are just three apartments on this floor.
