Downtown living at its finest...in Carnegie Hill!
This rare and ultra chic home was originally built in 1877 as a firehouse and separate stable, and later converted to an art gallery, before its current and finest incarnation. This magnificent 25' wide property was completely reimagined, redesigned and rebuilt inside its original shells to create a stunning four-story house and two-story carriage house both opening onto a gorgeous, landscaped lantern-lit garden courtyard with comfortable seating, dining and even a grilling area.
The main residence provides four bedrooms and four full baths, as well as two half baths. There is an expansive double height entrance gallery, an open eat-in kitchen, a library with wet-bar, three wood burning fireplaces, expansive wall space for art, a 3,000 bottle wine cellar with a glass wall to the formal dining room, play space with basketball hoop, large tv area and gym. At the top of the house is a calm and sunny planted rooftop garden. The carriage house, a private two-story retreat, is currently configured as a home office and a separate guest suite. This separate structure is accessed via the garden or through the fully excavated and sky-lit lower level of the main house. Both houses enjoy looking back over the interior garden affording maximum privacy for quiet private life, or magical entertaining.
