"The product of ingenuity, history and taste, it gets my vote for top townhouse for sale in all of New York City." - New York Daily News.
A true masterpiece! This totally original, one-of-a-kind 4-story home offers that discerning buyer a rare opportunity. Boasting over 10,550 SF of impeccably-designed living space, 2 pre-existing buildings - a 19th Century schoolhouse and adjoining townhouse - seamlessly joined to create a flawless flow.
The 3-story red brick and terra-cotta schoolhouse was beautifully restored and the 4-story townhouse rebuilt with a new façade, resulting in a showplace property used as a high-profile artist's live/work space.
The building's bold and unique architectural design stunningly contrasts the traditional charm of the old brick building with the modernized zinc standing seam wall (added to enlarge the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th floor spaces) and the sleek metallic roof. Private indoor parking, gym, open artist loft. 3 Terraces in addition to a surrounding side garden. Stunning double height living room with wooden beams and a wood burning fireplace.
As described in the New York Times, "On the second floor, the living area, housed in the former Masonic Lodge, has a double-height ceiling with exposed beams and four skylights. That space seamlessly flows into a large kitchen with professional-grade appliances, double sinks and a breakfast nook.
Toward the front of the home, in the town house, there is also a sunny office with polished cork floors and walls lined with dark green felt. The master bedroom and en-suite bath take up the entire third floor of the town house. Bordered by a landscaped terrace at one end and a Zen garden at the other, it is a blend of minimalism and eco-chic.
The indoor/outdoor design extends to the shower and Japanese soaking tub in the master bath, which opens onto the terrace and can be viewed through a glass wall from the bedroom."
Lot Dimensions: 37ft x 110ft.
