AVAILABLE SHORT TERM, LONG TERM, FURNISHED, OR UNFURNISHED
Gorgeous, impeccably gut-renovated, meticulously-maintained townhouse on a coveted tree-lined street in prime Lenox Hill! Every detail of this jewel was thoughtfully redone to perfection over 3 years, completed in 2011, from the handsome front fa ade and repointed rear brick wall to all new wiring, plumbing, mechanicals and interior design, plus the addition of a spacious 5th floor with exceptional skyline views.
You'll have every comfort and luxury in this elegant 4,312 sq ft residence boasting 5 bedrooms, 4 full and 1 half baths, 2 separate additional spaces currently used as home offices, gracious living/entertaining areas, 4 working fireplaces, with 3 of them original and all cleanly fueled by gas; 2 laundry areas, and a finely-finished basement with enormous fireproof secure storage. A generous 563 sq ft of peaceful private outdoor space is yours to enjoy, which includes a low-maintenance garden with built-in irrigation and a Trex composite deck, a terrace off the 3rd floor bedroom, and a terrace off the 5th floor study.
Other highlights for your living pleasure, and very rare to find at this price point are a wonderful pure cedar sauna with a Tylo electric heater and volcanic rocks from Sweden for the ultimate pampering, and a 300-bottle wine cellar cooled by a Whisper Kool Platinum split unit for storing favorite vintages. The host will love the ease and flow afforded by the casual garden and formal parlor levels. The garden floor houses a stunning chef's kitchen appointed with a professional-grade Viking range that vents out, Subzero fridge, and dual dishwashers by Miele and Bosch. This adjoins a dining room with coffered ceilings and family room that opens to the garden. Formal living and dining rooms await one story up, as does a tranquil library/office with wall of built-ins. Bedrooms are light-filled and well-proportioned with abundant custom closets. The 4th floor is reserved for your primary suite, a divine retreat with a newer period-style fireplace, huge walk-in closet, and spa bath with underfloor heat, 2 sinks, and an oversized double shower.
Among the other distinctive features of this special gem are heated outdoor steps to the front door and basement for keeping off ice and snow; original Art Nouveau Guimard-style panels from the Paris subway (used as banisters for the interior stairs prior to renovation) now adorning the front vestibule; original hardwood floors; a top-floor skylight designed and installed by the firm that created the glass cubes and skylights for leading retailers; a top-quality Sonos sound system with in-ceiling speakers on all levels (except the children's bedroom floor) with 9 zones for playing different music; an alarm system with exterior video surveillance cameras; a full intercom system; fire suppression sprinkler system; multi-zone heating and central air; a humidification system; and radiant heat flooring.
As alluring is the excellent location, part of the 100-year-old Treadwell Farms neighborhood association that well cares for the tree beds, plants and flowers each spring and summer, and upholds a pleasant community in the best interest of the homeowners for minimal dues. There's also great subway access at the new 63rd Street and 3rd Avenue station and at 59th St and Lexington, several parking garages around the corner, and Bloomingdale's 2 blocks away. Midtown, restaurants, shopping, and private/public schools are close by, as is the FDR Drive to get downtown or outside the city.
