My Notes

Splendidly Romantic!

Understated elegance and discrete, this remarkable home exudes warmth and beauty from finished cellar to enchanted roof garden. Overlooking tree-lined Perry Street to the south and townhouse gardens through oversized casement windows to the north, this unique home with extraordinary attention to detail offers tranquility and calm. The interior of the house is enhanced by a spectacular airy wood and steel circular staircase. The welcoming parlor floor has high ceilings, wide planked white oak floors, and a hidden projector and movie screen. Kitchen is lavish and spacious with antique slab stone floors imported from France, eight burner Lacanche French stove, and double wide Sub-Zero fridge. The handsome dinging area overlooks a Zen garden. All three bedrooms are well proportioned and a beautiful wooden beamed ceiling. adorns the master bedroom that is accompanied by an indulgent bathroom. The magical roof deck with mature plantings crowns this gracious house and is utterly captivating.This is an entire private West Village townhouse!  More Less
