Description

Nestled on one of the West Village's most discreet and charming blocks, 53 Downing Street is a recently completed, gut renovated single-family townhouse with a garage. The Landmarked Italianate house was originally built in 1857 and has undergone a complete re-design by CWB Architects to transform it into a showplace with superb finishes, detailing and proportioning, expertly installed by master craftsmen. Every imaginable detail has been considered in this renovation, including brand new individually zoned mechanical systems for year round flexibility along with radiant floors in all bathrooms as well as a fully integrated Crestron AV system with ceiling speakers and connectivity for TV, Internet and Security. PARLOR FLOOR Enter on grade through the gracious foyer that sits alongside one of Manhattan's most desired townhouse features: a private garage. Limestone paved floors with superb wood paneled walls lead to the gracious curved stairway that abuts the elevator servicing all six floors. The hallway extends to the extraordinary Atelier living room, a magical room of epic proportions with 14 foot tall ceilings and a grand fireplace with the most unique feature of all: a floor-to-ceiling window overlooking a back-lit terrarium conservatory filled with plantings all year round. Also on this floor are a temperature-controlled wine room, a wet-bar and a powder room. SECOND FLOOR The spacious landing leads south to an elegant formal dining room with a fireplace. Across the hall is the large eat-in kitchen with custom cerused oak cabinetry, Miele and Sub Zero appliances and Calcutta gold marble island, countertops and backsplashes. There is a bar area with a Subzero cooler and Scottsman ice maker. A pantry also features marble counters. This perfectly proportioned area leads out onto a landscaped entertaining terrace with a Wolf Grill and Subzero fridge. THIRD FLOOR This entire floor is dedicated to the master bedroom Suite with its large south-facing windows and includes an en-suite bathroom splendidly finished with Calcutta marble, Waterworks Henry fixtures, a Polished nickel Drummonds tub, twin vanities, a steam room and a 3-in-1 full spectrum Infrared sauna. Masses of closet space connects the bedroom and bathroom. FOURTH FLOOR This floor contains two secondary bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, a home office and another terrace. FIFTH FLOOR Two additional bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms and a laundry room with LG appliances are housed on this floor. SIXTH FLOOR This magnificent addition features soaring ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows, a powder room, a bar with Subzero, Miele and Scottsman appliances, a fireplace and two terraces facing north and south with surprisingly good views and exceptional light. Rarely if ever does a property of this caliber come to the market, turn-key ready, located in the most convenient part of the West Village, moments from Soho as well as the Hudson River Park and a few minutes from Washington Square Park, surrounded by superb retail, restaurants and entertainment, not to mention the convenience of proximity to several transportation options. Nestled on a discreet, quiet, treed block where the West Village meets Soho and Hudson Square, 53 Downing Street is a large, 20’-3 1/4” wide, recently completed, gut renovated single-family townhouse with a garage and multiple outdoor living spaces. The Landmarked Italianate house was originally built in 1857 and has undergone a complete redesign by CWB Architects to transform it into a showplace with superb finishes, detailing and proportioning, expertly installed by master craftsmen.
