Description

This handsome and impeccably renovated 20-foot wide brownstone was originally built in 1891 by architect Gilbert Schellenger for developer George Rudell as one of five four-stories row houses with raised basements designed in the Neo-Renaissance and New -Romanesque style. Retaining its historical front facade and with turn key interiors, this sun-flooded home has been meticulously crafted to create a classic and elegant masterpiece. Measuring aprox. 8,500 square feet, this townhouse is complete with an extraordinary 33 feet -long six-foot-deep swimming pool and oversized spa, plus elevator servicing each of the six levels. The impressive interiors blend classic details with modern living. An elegant reception leads to an enfilade of lofty/public entertainment spaces with soaring ceilings. Following the bright dining room and sophisticated living room with both wood burning and gas fireplaces, a wet bar with velvet-upholstered seating and mirror-backed glass shelving. The family room and eat-in chef's kitchen are located at the garden level. The kitchen features a center island, custom cabinets, built-in dining banquet, marble countertops, top-of-the-line appliances, pantry room and abundance of storage. A wall of glass opens to a gracious garden with multiple sitting areas, built-in grill and firewood storage. Below, an enviable basement with high ceilings offers a gym area, wine cellar room, pool and jacuzzi. Third, Fourth and Fifth floors are private quarters flooded with light and feature timeless moldings, bay windows, hardwood floors, and fireplaces. The magnificent primary bedroom suite opens up to a private terrace overlooking the garden and row of townhouses. It boats two walk-in- closets and a luxurious en -suite marble bath with large glass-enclosed shower, soaking tub and a dual-sink marble vanity. There are three more extraordinarily spacious and sunny bedrooms, office/playroom area and a laundry room. The entire third level is used as entertainment/office level, with an elegant front mezzanine featuring original details and wood burning fireplace, a large home theater room and a second office space. This area could be converted into two additional en-suite bedrooms. The four baths and two powder rooms are stylishly appointed with sleek modern fixtures-including bidets. Both stairs and elevator access the roof, which is ideal for the addition of a stunning deck or a penthouse. This totally unique home is equipped with 11-zone central air conditioning, radiant heating with forced-air backup, smart home wiring, three air exchanges, and a front patio snow-melting system. It should not be missed!
