53 Downing Street | New York, NY 10014
Nestled on a discreet, quiet, treed block where the West Village meets Soho and Hudson Square, 53 Downing Street is large, 20'-3 1/4' wide, recently completed, gut renovated single-family townhouse with a garage and multiple outdoor living spaces. The Landmarked Italianate house was originally built in 1857 and has undergone a complete redesign by CWB Architects to transform it into a showplace with superb finishes, detailing and proportioning, expertly installed by master craftsmen. Every imaginable detail has been considered in the renovation of this mansion-scaled home renovation, including brand new individually zoned mechanical systems for year-round flexibility along with radiant floors in all bathrooms as well as a fully integrated Crestron AV system with ceiling speakers and connectivity for TV, Internet, and Security.
Enter on grade through the gracious foyer that sits alongside one of Manhattan's most desired townhouse features: a private garage. Limestone paved floors with superb wood-paneled walls lead to the gracious curved stairway that abuts the elevator servicing all six floors. The hallway extends to the extraordinary Atelier living room, a magical room of epic proportions with 14-foot tall ceilings and a grand fireplace with the most unique feature of all: a floor-to-ceiling window overlooking a back-lit terrarium conservatory filled with plantings all year round. Also on this floor are a temperature-controlled wine room, a wet-bar, and a powder room.
The spacious landing leads south to an elegant formal dining room with a fireplace. Across the hall is the large eat-in kitchen with custom cerused oak cabinetry, Miele and Sub Zero appliances, and Calcutta gold marble island, countertops, and backsplashes. There is a bar area with a Subzero cooler and Scottsman ice maker. ... more on SOTHEBYSHOMES.COM/OLRS0025934
