The synergy of this unique brand-new museum-quality restoration and renovation is unparalleled in all of New York. This house is both urban and urbane, containing 7 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms and 2 powder rooms composed of marble, travertine and waterworks fixtures. Passion and dedication brought this 2 ½ year renovation to life with details that include the original gas light chandeliers, 5 skylights, 2 staircases, and a restored & refurbished original Otis elevator. The chef's kitchen offers two La Cornue stoves, a Blue Star professional oven, Subzero refrigerator and freezer with 2 additional under counter refrigerators, 3 Meile dishwashers, 3 stainless steel sinks, custom venting hood, and a dumbdwaiter that leads to the separate butlers kitchen. The leaded glass skylight mirrors the elliptical shape of the elegant staircase and casts light throughout the house. Six original gas fireplaces and 1 new wood burning fireplace feature unique and irreplaceable mantles adding warmth to nearly every room. The oval wing of this home is punctuated by curved walls, doors and windows. Your lush private garden with bluestone patio is maintained by a state-of-the-art irrigation system. The sophistication of this home extends from the infrastructure to the architecture. The finest millwork, Venetian plaster, stained glass and hand painted murals with gold leaf details all crafted by the most talented artisans pay tribute to the original architects, Babb, Cook & Willard who also designed the Carnegie house (now the Cooper Hewitt Museum).
