BRAND NEW, ARCHITECT DESIGNED CARNEGIE HILL TOWNHOUSE
Move right into this newly gut renovated and rebuilt 4-story plus finished basement townhouse with approximately 4,275 square feet! Originally built in 1901, it is down the street from Andrew Carnegie’s mansion for which the neighborhood is named, and is within the Carnegie Hill Historic District.
Every inch of this townhouse, from the basement up, was renovated within the past five years. It was designed by acclaimed architect, Ben Fuqua, and features state-of-the-art systems including 8 zones of central air conditioning and heat, all new windows, white oak floors throughout, audio system with in-wall speakers, and the latest smart home technology. Ceilings soar to almost 12 feet on the parlor floor, and over 11 feet on the top floor primary suite. The basement was dug out several feet to create additional living space, and even the kitchen floor was lowered to create taller ceilings. It is bright and sunny all day and its garden is surrounded by other townhouse gardens, affording a beautiful view on to trees and greenery.
You enter the first floor through a gated front garden into a mud room featuring radiant heated floors and incredible closets plus a large storage room. There is a family room or den with a large picture window overlooking the front garden, which then leads to the dining area. The kitchen at the far end of the house is a home chef’s dream and overlooks the garden. The floor was dug down a foot to create an extremely welcoming space. It features a center island and top-of-the-line Gaggenau appliances including a teppanyaki, custom cabinets made from cerise wood, an induction stove, steam oven, convection stove, and a warming drawer. The garden is surrounded by other townhouses and their gardens and features a gas grill and burner with a dedicated gas line, and tall epai wood fencing.
The townhouse retains its historic stoop and the original door and stained glass window from 1901, both of which were beautifully restored. The ornate, original staircase and banister from the parlor floor up was also preserved and restored. The entry vestibule leads to a foyer with a large coat closet. The living room features an 8 foot tall double hung window allowing sunlight to stream through most of the day. Immediately adjacent to the living room is a wet bar and butler’s pantry with sink, refrigerator and drawer dishwasher. You pass a beautifully appointed powder room as you enter the grand scale library with gas fireplace and two large windows overlooking the garden and other surrounding townhouse gardens.
The third floor has two equisized bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms plus large walk-in closets. Conveniently, there is a laundry room on this floor. Another larger laundry room is in the finished basement.
The wonderfully lavish primary suite is on the top floor and features soaring ceilings over 11 feet. The walk-through dressing room measures over 21 feet with boundless storage creating the ultimate custom closet. The large primary bedroom features a wood burning fireplace with draft inducer plus 2 additional closets. Lastly there is a home office and a gorgeous bathroom with 2 sinks, deep soaking tub overlooking the sky and townhouse gardens below, and a walk-in shower. The primary bathroom also has radiant heated floors.
The basement was excavated several feet to create another floor of living space that features a “hang out” room with home theatre and fitness equipment, a powder room, slop sink, closets, the building’s state-of-the-art mechanicals, laundry room and a large storage room. The townhouse also features a full sprinkler system.
This is a unique opportunity to own a brand new, beautifully and thoughtfully renovated townhouse created by an owner who has owned prior townhouses and learned every “trick in the book" to make this one absolutely perfect.
