Walk down a hallway, past a powder room and past several walk-in closets, to the rear of this home to discover four spacious bedrooms, three additional bathrooms, and TWO PRIVATE TERRACES. The expansive primary suite features a SECOND WORKING FIREPLACE, a large walk-in closet, direct access to one of the terraces, and enough space for a king-sized bed and a large seating area. The primary bath features a steam shower and double vanity.
In one of the other bedrooms, which the current owners use as a private sitting room and office, you find a walk-in closet, a magnificent wall of built-in bookshelves, and access to the other private terrace. One of the hall bathrooms has been converted to a Japanese-style spa, complete with deep soaking tub and steam. The terraces feature birches, Japanese maple, azaleas, hydrangeas, magnolias, and other seasonal plants. They are fully outfitted with lighting, sound, and automatic watering systems.
The separate kitchen features limestone countertops, substantial cupboard space, and a top-tier Miele appliance package, including oven, range, refrigerator, dishwasher, and IN-UNIT WASHER DRYER. The home also features central ducted forced-air heating and cooling and a state-of-the-art BluOS smart phone-controlled speaker system with speakers on both terraces, in the bedrooms, kitchen, dining and living rooms, with 11 amplifiers in total.
The design-and-build for this home was completed by Roger Hirsch of acclaimed Hirsch Corti architects. The unique double-brownstone building is a pet-friendly condominium, and the superintendent for the building lives nearby. A gardener will maintain the terrace plantings at no additional charge.
