On one of the finest blocks on the Upper West Side, this 5,500-square-foot home has been meticulously renovated as an impeccable modern retreat. It features five stylish bedrooms and baths, elegant traditional moldings, custom cabinetry, and lovely light in nearly every room.
The airy, open southern garden level begins with a chic family room offering a gas fireplace and a full wall of handsome built-ins. Just beyond is a chef’s kitchen, an atrium-like space where richly hued cabinetry contrasts with the clean lines of the marble-wrapped island and superior stainless-steel appliances. The adjoining casual dining space has walls and ceilings of glass that blur the lines between indoors and out. Beyond lies a private courtyard and terrace perfect for alfresco relaxation. The busy professional will appreciate the quiet office, which includes its own built-ins and stately fireplace.
A classically elegant living area is located on the parlor level, which expands the options for gracious day-to-day living and entertaining. It is adjoined by a sophisticated dining room, a wet bar area, and a charming alcove that would make an ideal library or study.
Deeply toned hardwood floors and plentiful natural light create a peaceful ambience in the owner’s bedroom. Included en suite are an exceptionally outfitted walk-in closet and a bright, opulent bath offering both a Kohler whirlpool tub and a steamshower. The four additional bedrooms—spread across the home’s four levels—are inviting, light-filled, and roomy, with timeless detailing, thoughtful appointments, and room to breathe. The sleek baths feature artful fixtures and finishes. A south-facing terrace off a fourth-floor bedroom is a refreshing aerie amid the treetops.
Secluded on the lower level is a versatile gym and recreation room with a full bath, a sauna, a laundry room, and storage space. Other highlights include a whole-house water filtration system, a security system, and landscape irrigation.
