The grand scale of this six-story townhome (plus a cellar) creates endless possibilities for living and entertaining. It is showcased by its 20-foot width, over 9,000 interior gross square feet and 1,360 gross square feet of cellar storage (with a temp-controlled wine room), an elevator servicing all seven floors, high ceilings, and a wide sweeping staircase, as well as outdoor space that includes a 35-foot landscaped garden with custom irrigation system, a Juliet balcony and a large terrace with open city views. Rare to townhouses, superb natural light floods each floor through oversized windows and several skylights at the peak. The garden and parlor floors feature floor-to-ceiling windows. Currently configured with 6 bedrooms, it can easily transition to a 7 or 8-bedroom home if needed. Additionally, there are 6 full bathrooms and 3 powder rooms.
Originally built at the turn-of-the-century, the house is fully renovated and every inch has been masterfully conceived with the finest finishes, innovative systems and luxurious amenities. Modern design elements balance seamlessly with old-world elegance, scale and details including pristine, decorative moldings, beautifully finished oak wood floors, pocket doors and 9 wood-burning fireplaces. With two levels of expansive formal rooms, a serene landscaped garden, multiple butler kitchens and a dumbwaiter, the house can easily accommodate entertaining on a large-scale.
