Like the finest piece of art, this city mansion is a rarity, totally restored to perfection by an architect/contractor owner who personally planned and oversaw every aspect of its multi-year, painstaking restoration. From its brownstone exterior, expertly repaired, to its incredible reception hall and parlor with 14-foot ceilings, stunning plaster moldings and rich old-world millwork, this is a home like no other. Its grand-scale formal rooms, including the front reception parlor and dining room, are expansive enough to accommodate several seating areas. Both feature gas fireplaces and are laden with striking millwork and moldings. The custom chef's kitchen with casual dining area, gas fireplace and two sets of French doors to a garden space and two-car off-street parking, is well-suited to catered affairs and the everyday cook. Timeless neutral cabinetry, radiant heat, a Wolf range, custom lighting, Viking Professional refrigerator/freezer and more make this a dream city kitchen. Private quarters on the third and fourth floors are as enchanting as the public spaces. The main bedroom suite features 12-foot-high plaster ceilings with pristine moldings.
