This Renaissance Revival Brownstone is perfectly located on a tree-lined block between Central Park West and Columbus Avenue. The home is a perfect combination of Classic Manhattan, with an underlying tone of a countryside French Chateaux.
Approximately 9,800 square feet over 6 floors with 8 bedrooms, eight bathrooms and a full basement for storage. A 28' extension stretches 3 floors. Use the elevator to easily move between floors. The finished rooftop screams for a Fourth of July party; Soaking up the sun during the day and watching the fireworks at night. The 3rd floor patio is perfect for barbequing and entertaining, while the main floor has a brilliant area for a small home garden. Currently, the property is configured as a single-family home though retains its 2 family status and has the ability to be converted back into a rent producing two-family, which had been rented as a 3 bed/2bath unit for $11K/month before the conversion. The space offers its own separate entrance.
The mantels of the 6 woodburning fireplaces were brought to NYC from an 18th Century French Chateaux. French accents abound. The floors consist of French parquet, chevron, and herringbone. The windows are polished French nickel hardware, olive door hinges and European door hardware. The ceilings are all hand crafted with French panel plaster moldings, ceiling tiles, custom crown moldings and ceiling medallions. The home has plaster walls that have been finished by a craftsman utilizing traditional European methods.
The public spaces include a formal and informal living room, a dining room, a den, a library, a family room, a media room, an office, and an eat-in kitchen. The 8 bathrooms are works of art, flooded with marble and handmade mosaics that have been crafted to perfection. The kitchen has marble as far as the eye can see, this is truly a chef's kitchen with an oversized stove, beautiful refrigerator and two dishwashers. The marble continues into the library as it accents the paneling perfectly. No expense was spared, including a Crestron system integrating audio/video, climate control, lighting and security functionality. There is also a noise reducing sound isolation system incorporated into framing and construction of the walls, floors, and ceilings.
