Sleek and stunning, this bright and beautiful townhouse presents quality, elegance and innovation and is perfectly positioned on a quiet and special one block street away from it all, yet surrounded by all the best the city has to offer. Just on the border of the Soho and Nolita neighborhoods, this unique enclave community features only a handful of homes and within the heartbeat of Manhattan. Home to well-known artists, poets and writers in the 50's and 60's, this rare downtown treasure today embodies a tranquil setting in the midst of the city. This stunning residence offers contemporary luxuries combined with great scale and attention to detail. Originally built at the turn-of-the-century, the interior of the entire house was custom-designed in 2006 and elegantly reinterpreted for a modern lifestyle.
