A gut-renovated single-family townhouse with 31 feet of frontage overlooking Carl Schurz Park and the East River, this stunning 5-bedroom, 5-bathroom home is a paragon of contemporary Yorkville luxury.
No expense was spared in this 5-story 4,000 sq. ft. house including beautiful teak hardwood floors, brand new plumbing and electrical, Pella windows and doors, motorized shades, Lutron lighting, Tom Dixon light fixtures, Mitsubishi heating and cooling, a water filtration system, ADT security with a front door camera, wood- and gas-burning fireplaces, and audio/visual intercom system. The home centers around a sky lit designer walnut staircase, leading you to a quartet of private terraces including a sprawling rooftop deck with an outdoor kitchen.
The parlor level of the home opens into a tasteful foyer adorned with a powder room and large coat closet outfitted by California closets and then flows into formal living and dining rooms. The living room has a marble wood-burning fireplace, while the dining room leads out onto a lovely terrace for al fresco meals and has a convenient wet bar with a pair of Bosch dishwashers, two warming drawers, a Sub-Zero fridge and a dumb waiter.
The garden level contains a casual dining area, a laundry room, a powder room, and a large Porcelanosa kitchen that leads out onto a covered terrace and is equipped with sleek countertops, matching backsplashes, custom cabinetry, Italian ceramic floor tiles, an urban cultivator for home grown microgreens, and a suite of high-end appliances from Wolf, Viking, and Sub-Zero, with a utility sink and a vented whirlpool washer/dryer and additional storage.
The second level has a trio of bedrooms with California closets. One of the bedrooms has a private en-suite bath, while the other two share access to a pristine full bathroom.
The third level is fully occupied by a sprawling master suite boasting two massive windowed walk-in California closets (one of which can be used as an office or sitting room) and a windowed spa-like en-suite bathroom adorned with marble, heated floors, a step-in shower, and a deep soaking tub.
The fourth level boasts a private bedroom, a full bathroom, and a luminous den with amazing park views, chic Ligne Roset furniture, and a granite gas-burning fireplace. A balcony just off the den has a spiral staircase that leads up to an incredible rooftop terrace. All bedrooms have flat screen TVs and all full bathrooms have radiant heated floors.
