Home Details for 1 5th Ave
1 Fifth Avenue
A home unmatched in its history, character and charm, this two-bedroom, two-an
d-a-half-bathroom former carriage house is located in the gated Washington Mews, a coveted street between 5th Avenue and University Place in the heart of Greenwich Village. The single-family residence, which comes with a parking spot on the street, was built in 1840s and has been fully renovated, while maintaining the integrity of its rich past. Enter through a formal foyer, flanked by two sets of deep closets, which leads to the expansive open kitchen, dining and living area. The high-end kitchen is outfitted... with a Sub-Zero refrigerator, Viking six-burner stove, Miele dishwasher, and a central island with fitted microwave, providing additional counter and storage space. Above the double-sink is a set of casement windows, which look out onto a tranquil courtyard. The dining space centers on a gorgeous French marble gas fireplace, and the adjacent living room is flooded with light from three large south-facing windows. Follow the central walnut banister staircase upstairs to the living quarters. Natural light pours through four dramatic skylights, which decorate the third level of this extraordinary home. The oversized master bedroom boasts two full walls of built-in cabinets and storage. Three windows, framed by pale blue, louvered shutters and wooden planters equipped with automatic irrigation, overlook the quiet, cobblestoned street below. In the second bedroom, French doors open to a charming balcony, which is perched above a serene central courtyard. The marble-clad master bathroom is appointed with Barber Wilsons fixtures and features a soaking tub and separate, large steam shower with Samuel Heath rainfall shower head. The downstairs level opens to a den/media room, which can also function as an additional bedroom. Another inlaid marble Georgian fireplace accentuates the unparalleled allure of this majestic, yet inviting, space. Also on this floor is a spacious office, bathroom with separate shower, and a large laundry room with vented Miele washer and dryer, sink, shelving and numerous closets. Nest thermostats control the two HVAC zones throughout the house. 64 Washington Mews is an extension of One Fifth Avenue cooperative, a renowned, pre-war landmark situated at the entry of Fifth Avenue's Gold Coast. Residents have access to the co-op's full service amenities, while enjoying the independence of a standalone carriage house. This unique residence evokes a significant piece of Downtown Manhattan's extensive history, as only a handful of mews--formerly used a stables and carriage houses--still exist in New York City.
