About this property
Welcome to 13 West 127th Street !
This stunning two-family1909 townhouse, with 3800sqft of living space and 1000sqft of outdoor space, has been completely and masterfully renovated with the utmost attention to detail and the finest finishes.
The four-to-five bedroom triplex features both a classic formal parlor entry foyer and a thoughtfully designed ramped entrance on the garden level that leads to a mudroom with a large closet, storage hallway with access to both the parlor floor and the cellar. The parlor floor features a wonderful open living concept with 11’ high ceilings throughout. The central kitchen showcases beautiful custom cabinetry with brass hardware, large marbled island, 42" SubZero refrigerator and six-burner 48’" Bertazonni range with double oven and a vented hood. The adjoining dining room is impeccably designed with pocket doors and Phillips Jefferies grasscloth wallpaper. Down the hall from the dining room is a tasteful, marbled powder room. The dramatic, and comfortable, living room features 10’ floor-to-ceiling windows and two full-sized glass doors leading to the outdoor oasis. The steel deck and staircase lead down to a patio made of natural bluestone and an easily maintained garden made of organic synthetic turf.
The second floor includes the primary bedroom suite, library/media room, additional powder room, laundry room with storage and two hallway closets. The primary suite features a Carrera-marbled bathroom with windowed rain shower, double vanity and a massive 10′ × 10′ dressing room/walk-in-closet. Down the hall is the library/home office/media room with a custom-built floor-to-ceiling bookcase and bright southern exposure. As you travel up to the third floor, light travels throughout the hallways and staircase from one of the two top floor skylights. The den/playroom has a second massive skylight, with a retractable blind, and is surrounded by three bedrooms, two full bathrooms and four oversized hallway closets (one of which houses a secret chute to the laundry room!).
Additional features include a 6-zone Mitsubishi energy-efficient HVAC system with NEST thermostats, remotely controlled Comelit video-intercom system, DGA security system and sleek Citibin garbage enclosures with planters. The garden level unit is set up as a two-bedroom to maximize rental income and will be delivered vacant.
