137 West 13th Street in prime West Village, is an exceptionally refined six story, 20’ wide townhouse that has been completely modernized. Recently completing a two year renovation by RoundSquare Development with KDA and Helena Clunies-Ross Design, this home was carefully crafted to provide every luxury imaginable. Interior design firm BOS Studio layered on refined amenity-rich details throughout all six levels. Encompassing 7,386 square feet, this home offers five bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, two powder rooms, five separate outdoor spaces, four fireplaces and a full floor primary suite. The newly engineered staircase wraps around the elevator and serves as the architectural centerpiece of the home.
Maintaining the historical facade, the restoration integrated a clean modern aesthetic and included excavation 20’ below street level to create ceiling heights of 9’ on the cellar level, 10’ 11’’ on the garden level and 11’ on the parlor floor. The garden and parlor floors feature stunning, floor-to-ceiling black steel and glass windows and doors by Optimum. This same aesthetic was carried throughout the home with black steel framed glass doors defining marque rooms.
The architectural details flow seamlessly on the parlor floor. The dramatic sitting room with a gas fireplace is partitioned off by glass doors. The eat-in chef’s kitchen features Spectrum cabinetry in ebonized oak with countertops in a coarse Courtado Gris stone. The kitchen is complete with an extensive suite of Meile appliances, including 48” wide refrigerator, six burner range, two dishwashers, and wine refrigerator. The kitchen area comfortably allows seating for 10 and is set against a whitewashed brick wall original to the home. Completing this floor is a powder room with Nero Marquina vanity and an exterior balcony just off of the kitchen with stairs leading to the garden.
On the garden floor, enter the living room through the steel and glass doors giving way to a beautiful view of the lush garden. This floor offers its own powder room with a separate guest bedroom and en-suite bathroom. The private garden has been designed for entertaining with a plumbed gas grill, a gas fireplace, lush landscaping and outdoor speakers.
The cellar level is nearly the full depth of the 20’ x 103’ lot with functional living spaces for an amenity driven lifestyle. This level contains a screening room, game room, home gym, a Sunlighten infrared sauna with an adjacent shower, powder room, laundry and a wine room with humidification.
The third floor entrance to the primary bedroom suite is through another set of black steel and glass doors. The garden facing bedroom with its own balcony allows for a quiet respite. Dual walk-in custom white oak closets separate the sleeping quarters from the primary bathroom. The expansive bathroom boasts Novella Creama limestone slabs with a double sink vanity, medicine cabinets and heated floors. Adding to the drama of this luxuriously appointed bathroom is a sumptuous marble carved freestanding tub.
The fourth floor consists of two king-sized secondary bedrooms each with en-suite bathrooms, all consistent with the home’s aesthetic. A second laundry room with storage completes this floor.
The fifth floor contains a decadent home office/fifth bedroom with an en-suite and a private terrace. A wet bar sits adjacent to the south facing roof terrace.
Additional features include 12” wide plank European oak flooring, full home automation by Savant for Lutron, climate control, sound and shades. All home systems and mechanicals are brand new, including the Trane HVAC system with 12 zones throughout.
Centrally situated on a beautiful tree-lined block, 137 West 13th is one of a few remaining houses on West 13th built by Stephen B. Peet in 1845 during the Greek Revival period.
