Impeccably crafted and elegantly designed, 212 East 32nd Street is a Kips Bay townhouse unlike any other. A restored fa ade and rebuilt entry vestibule leads you through to the parlor level, where 11-foot ceilings and original detail work abound. The formal dining room is finished in Italian plaster and is directly adjacent to the chef's kitchen, complete with professional-grade appliances including a Wolf range, Sub-Zero refrigerator, and Miele dishwasher. Cherry hardwood floors lead you past a powder room and coat closet to the south-facing living room, boasting an original marble fireplace, built-in shelving, and double French doors. A terrace leads you down to the garden, complete with mature landscaping, uncommon amounts of privacy from century-old trees, and modern amenities such as a dedicated irrigation and lighting system. Upstairs, the second level is dedicated to the home's primary suite; the oversized bedroom chamber includes custom window seats and an oversized dressing room. The primary bathroom has both a Jacuzzi tub and separate shower, as well as a separate water closet. Custom designed by the owners, the south-facing library is a triumph, with incredibly finished bookcases throughout. A dedicated washer/dryer for the primary suite is also found on this level. The top floor of the residence includes two bedrooms plus an office or nursery, an en-suite bathroom for the north-facing bedroom (which is also complete with a decorative marble fireplace and custom millwork) as well as a hall bath for the two remaining rooms and a second washer/dryer. Below the stoop, the garden level is currently configured as an office and informal recreation space, with a front bedroom, half bathroom, and a rear den with wet bar directly accessing the south-facing rear garden. Located on a sought-after stretch of Kips Bay townhouses, 212 East 32nd Street is conveniently positioned near major subway lines and area cultural institutions.
