Rare opportunity to rent an elegant, newly renovated parlor floor apartment facing Gramercy Park, in an 1840's Greek Revival red brick townhouse. The two bedroom home has undergone a complete gut renovation led by acclaimed architect Antonio Matres. No detail was overlooked in this high-end renovation. This one of a kind home is distinguished by a grand living room with 14 foot ceilings, and floor to ceiling French doors that open onto a romantic iron lacework verandah directly facing Gramercy Park. Classic architectural details such as the swirling arabesques of the ceiling, original wood burning marble fireplaces, and the Corinthian pilasters in the living room have been carefully preserved, seamlessly blending the old and new. The beautiful open kitchen features custom white oak cabinetry and Gaggenau and Miele appliances. The oversized kitchen island with breakfast bar and spacious dining area with Darmes lighting are perfect for entertaining. A long hallway leading to the bedrooms is like a room of its own, an ideal space to exhibit art. The unique shape of the master bedroom affords multiple exposures, a northern view of the Calvary St. George's Church on 21st street, ivy, and a garden view to the south. Enjoy ample closet space with custom formatting and lighting, custom bench seating, and an en suite bath with Waterworks accessories, marble Bianco and Dolomiti tiles in honey finish, and a versatile shower with options for hand-held, head, and rain shower. The second bedroom is spacious and has a large closet. Solid white oak chevron hardwood floors, flower molded ceilings retro-illuminated with LED surround lighting, abundant closets, security system, and central AC add to the comfort of this exceptional property. The house has a state of the art automation system to control sound, lighting and thermostats, with recessed in wall speakers. The hardware throughout the home is custom- handmade for the doors and Rocky Mountain Flute collection for the kitchen. The option to rent furnished includes all custom made furniture designed by Christian Liaigre.Call 3 Gramercy Park West home and you will have a key to Gramercy Park.
