The owner spared no expense in this unique blend of classic and contemporary styles to maximize comfort for anyone looking to enjoy an old New York feel with a modern infusion of architecture and design.
This Briggs Knowles designed home features many details one can truly appreciate. From the light soaked unobstructed parlor floor, to the architecturally designed angular stair, to the glass rear façade, open back yard, natural light well, and even the rooftop oculus are blend a visually appealing design that is aesthetically comforting.
The home is currently configured as single family four-bedroom residence that includes a home office and semi-finished basement. One has direct access to the cellar level from the garden level and the recreation space is voluminous with many different possibilities. Once can create a playroom, a second den, a screening room, or even an art studio.
The garden level has a separate entrance that opens into the dining room. From there the floor transitions into the kitchen area. The rear section of the garden level is a beautiful sitting area that is sun soaked with southern exposure and a full glass façade. From this point you also have direct access the enormous 800 square foot backyard. The kitchen design is high end classic modern with such finishes as custom bamboo panels , Subzero refrigerator, 36” six burner vented Wolf range top, honed jet mist granite counter-top, Wolf duel fuel oven, wine refrigerator, farm sink, additional utility sink, custom bamboo floors, recessed lighting, and full surround sound (all levels). The space is designed with practical comfort that allows guests and family to interact comfortably with unobstructed flow. This level also includes a hidden panel powder room with Ann Sachs penny tile and a Creama Marfil vanity top.
The parlor level is a full floor living space with a large open formal den. As you walk to the rear of this floor the space gently transitions into a private living area with two large sliding doors (for privacy) and high ceilings. The living area features a wood burning limestone fireplace and southern exposed light with a large glass opening that opens to a Juliet balcony that overlooks the garden.
The second floor features a generous master bedroom suite. The master bath blends modern design with matted sandstone bath counters, double sink, separate shower enclosure, full sized Ultra Bain tub fitted with chromatherapy lights and air jets, separate toilet and shower cabinets, and a breakfast bar with a mini-frig and sink. The master bedroom also features a large walk in closet, wood burning limestone fireplace, and a full sized Washer Dryer.

Both bedrooms feature generous space and custom closets. The space is also home to the grand oculus that is a generous skylight opening that allows the common stair and hallway to be flooded with light all day. The space is an excellent design feature that many will talk about for years to come.
The entire building is heated with a radiant floor system and has central air conditioning. The building also has additional air rights and total FAR of 5556 square feet (*Propertyshark) that would allow any potential buyer to expand the project and any time.
