On "a block often considered the best in New York" (New York Times), sits a modern and classic renovation of an exquisite 20 foot elevatored townhouse. This home has been re-designed and re-imagined for modern living while maintaining the traditional elegance and beauty of its spaces. Perfect for private use or lavish entertaining, the home has grand entertaining spaces, thoughtfully re-configured public and private spaces and five expansive outdoor spaces. The square rear of the home provides unusually large rooms with gracious proportions. The extensive use of glass on the south-facing rear facade and four set-back terraces and roof deck provide light, air, outdoor space and charm. There are six wood-burning fireplaces. Fully-renovated, all the systems, baths and kitchen are brand new and of the highest quality design and finish. The house has been fully re-wired for security and entertainment. The block, which owes at least part of its reputation to the foresight of property owners in 1859 who agreed that all future development on the north side would be set back 10 feet, leaving that extra space "forever free and unoccupied," is considered among New York's finest. It is located in close proximity to Central Park as well as New York's midtown business center and its most important museums and shopping areas.The first floor is perfect for modern living. The over-sized kitchen adjoins a grand family room which opens to the landscaped garden through a wall of glass. It includes two entrances, a mud room, an office and a powder room. An additional stair connects the first floor to the parlor floor and service kitchen and provides a discreet service option for entertaining.The parlor floor is perfect for living and entertaining. A 30 foot living room with floor to ceiling windows and terrace is complemented by a large, square dining room with arched, floor to ceiling windows, a full service kitchen and a powder room.
