Two levels and a private terrace are the luxe backdrops for an idyllic indoor to outdoor way of living. The townhomes redefine the traditional Upper West Side residence by eschewing compartmentalized rooms in favor of living spaces that are functional and fluid, modernizing the traditional pre-war residential archetype by expanding room proportions and adding more windows throughout.
In the townhome terraces, a diverse range of shrubs, grasses, and perennials—including flowering dogwood trees, which erupt with fragrant white blooms each spring—have been selected for their shade-giving and aromatic qualities. The custom planters and kitchens are faced with Brazilian ipe, a durable and handsome hardwood once used for the Coney Island Boardwalk. The outdoor kitchens with a built-in 36-inch stainless steel gas grills, smoked gray granite countertops and intimate seating areas are ideal for dining and entertaining al fresco.
The open, light-filled rooms flow effortlessly from one to the next, while the fireplace, kitchen and media room remain natural focal points to gather and pause. A mansion weave parquet pattern meanders from room to room throughout the expansive interiors. Modest baseboards and casings that frame doorways and windows signal an unfussy elegance, while white bronze door hardware imparts the subtle warmth of its material.
Epicurean kitchens feature oversize islands and counters of White Sky marble, as well as custom gray oak cabinetry inspired by traditional rail and stile construction, with complementing classic fixtures by Lefroy Brooks are appliances by Wolf, Subzero, and Miele.
In the bedrooms, traditional plank flooring renders these refuges visually distinct from the public living spaces.Master bedrooms open into spacious en-suite dressing rooms, and are designed with oversize north-facing casement-style windows that fill the space with natural light year round.
Master bathrooms are tiled in an Empire-style rattan pattern in marble and porcelain, with Bianco Bello marble walls and countertops. Details, such as vanities with micro-architectural fluting and faceting on the brushed nickel Lefroy Brooks fixtures, display the building’s nuanced mastery of materials and motif. Secondary bathrooms are rich with textures, from hive tile Calacatta marble accent walls to Bianco Beatriz vein-cut walls and vanities. In the powder rooms, Calacatta tiling patterns subtly echo the organic design of the building’s terracotta facade panels. Oak panelled cabinets are topped with intricately veined quartzite surfaces.
