This beautifully renovated and meticulous 20 wide home with a landscaped rooftop terrace, south facing garden and elevator is ideally situated midblock on a tree-lined townhouse street in Hells Kitchen.

The entire townhouse has been thoroughly and thoughtfully renovated with all new mechanicals and systems throughout while preserving its distinctive character.
A front court with staircase leads to the separate Owners entrance which greets you on the Parlor level. The owners apartment was enhanced with the addition of two additional floors on top of the townhouse creating a captivating new sun-flooded Parlor Floor in the sky with soaring 11 ceilings and windows on four sides. The dramatic new parlor level on the 5th floor includes a Great Room with a wood-burning fireplace and a wall of French doors opening onto a south facing terrace. A separate enviably spacious chefs (Subzero/Wolf) eat-in kitchen in the sky is a WOW with walls of windows, a skylight and a sweep of open views over Hells Kitchen and beyond. There is a half bath on this level. One flight up from the living space, a windowed solarium with limestone flooring opens to a magical landscaped wrap (Ipe wood) decked terrace complete with wisteria-covered pergola, planters with climbing roses, outdoor grill and eye-catching views across the city – a true terrace lover and gardeners paradise. Downstairs, the private areas of the home encompass the third and fourth floors.

An additional guest room facing north with windowed bath en-suite and a walk-in windowed laundry room complete the floor.

A Library/Office with three windows and pretty views overlooking the trees along 44th street offers a cozy contrast on this level.
