The windowed English Basement features a maids room with full bathroom, as well as a media room and exercise room. A utility room with sink and side-by-side oversized washer and vented dryer complete this level. This floor is also accessible via the outdoor stairway. A gated entry leads you to the imposing front doors. Enter into a gracious gallery that leads past a library/den and powder room to the large eat-in kitchen. The chefs kitchen by Poliform is appointed with refined walnut cabinetry and Lagano marble slab countertops and backsplashes. The finest appliances by Sub-Zero, Miele, and Viking and a dumbwaiter connect the kitchen to the entertaining level above and the media room below. A wall of sun-flooded west-facing windows and french doors leads out to the courtyard garden and garage. Accessed via the dramatic curved stairway with its central light well, or the elevator, the second floor comprises a formal living room with a gas fireplace and a wall of steel-cased windows, and a formal dining room (with a second fireplace) facing west, divided by a gallery that houses an additional powder room. The bedroom with a romantic fireplace faces east over picturesque Sullivan Street and the Soho rooftops. A bank of closets separates it from the lavish en suite bathroom that features a freestanding tub overlooking a private balcony, the perfect perch to relax and unwind. There are double vanities, a separate stall steam shower, and a private water closet. The rooftop with its powder room and elevator access, allowing guests to bypass the home interior, provides a wonderful oasis for al fresco entertaining and features a fully-equipped outdoor kitchen and a fireplace. This super-quiet home also features oil-rubbed Danish oak flooring and an exquisite selection of finishes of the highest order, not to mention a Savant home automation system, motorized window draperies, brand new mechanicals, and radiant heated flooring throughout.
