Effortless Elegance, Timeless Style and Modern Design Surrounded by charming cafes and the most beautifully tended gardens in Manhattan, discover a published, discreet home, stunning from the moment you pull into the garage and enter this gracious, four story residence. Enter this beautiful home, and enter another era where true artisanship is revered. From the ceramic tiled foyer, which guides you past the chic, whimsical powder room, and into an awe-inspiring great room, with dramatic 18 foot custom-crafted wood coffered ceilings, created by the millwork artisan of the Gramercy Hotel Rose Bar, this home enchants the spirit as well as the senses. The great room serves as a grand, yet comfortable living space, centered around the massive, Italian Renaissance-style wood burning fireplace, which graces a sleek, poured concrete epoxy-finished floor. Boasting 11' ceilings, the parlor floor features a 100 foot long indoor/outdoor entertaining area, anchored by a custom-designed, eat-in chef's kitchen, complete with a poured concrete island, stainless steel Boffi kitchen, Wolf stove, Subzero refrigerator, with a virtually silent dishwasher as well as built-in cappucino maker made by Miele. The tremendous southern wall of the kitchen disappears entirely by retractable accordion, floor to ceiling wood-framed glass doors to reveal a 900 square foot patio bathed in sunshine in the day, and lit by the stars at night. The magnificent parlor floor is completed by a chic and relaxed formal dining room, replete with a gas fireplace and wood-framed glass French doors, opening to a glass and steel Juliet balcony overlooking charming, and historic 4th Street. The beautifully-designed master suite is a haven which flows through the entire third floor, having the benefit of the extremely rare feature of four sides of light. The master bedroom overlooks the large, quiet, private patio, and is flanked by an oversized, glamorous walk-through dressing room, with custom millwork "Hers" closet and storage space from floor to ceiling. The Moroccan-tiled, windowed master bath is an absolute oasis, with a wall of windows, an oversized steam shower, a deep soaking tub for the ultimate private morning or evening retreat. The separate water closet and "His" walk-in closet are hidden by Parisian art-deco privacy glass, stainless steel encased doors. The top floor completes this very special home, and features three bedrooms (one currently used as a large office), all with plenty of light from four exposures, and charming treetop views. There is another tremendous walk in closet, as well as a large bathroom with Bisazza glass tiles. The oversized laundry room fully furnished with a sink, also resides on the 4th floor. The laundry room can easily become an additional full bathroom if so desired! Every detail has been considered and implemented, from the Elan Home Automation system, which controls the zoned HVAC, security system, sound system, and lighting, to the private parking, to the custom finishes throughout and thoughtfully designed storage. This residence is 5,840 square feet and built to fulfill every need for both exquisite, over-the-top entertaining and to the same degree for total discretion and privacy.
