Nghbd: West Village
This rare townhouse gem on coveted Perry Street, at the heart of the West Village, was masterfully renovated and entirely rebuilt from top to bottom by influential AD100 designer Steven Gambrel. A fusion of elegance, style, and comfort, this glamorous home offers a modern take on a traditional townhouse, combining the best craftsmanship and period details with 21st century luxuries. Spread over four floors of living space, plus a cellar and a decked roof terrace, all behind a beautiful mid-19th century brick facade, is a home of the highest quality where every element (surfaces, fixtures, hardware, fittings) has been carefully selected with a discerning eye. Such a turn-key house in immaculate condition rarely comes on the market downtown, and has seldom been available in the prime West Village.

A restored front stoop leads to an intimate tiled entry vestibule, and into the parlor level stair hall. Featuring a magnificent red veined-marble mantel, the jewel-like lacquered study/library can also function as a formal dining room. The beautifully scaled double living room features original diamond-pattern leaded glass windows overlooking the garden. The 3rd floor has 3 bedrooms and 2 en-suite baths. A sumptuous master suite occupies the full 4th floor, with a large dressing room, a spectacular sky-lit marble-clad 6-fixture bath, and a built-in wet bar. The bedchamber?s 3 sets of French doors open to a private and lushly planted setback terrace.

Throughout the house are strong architectural details, including muscular baseboard, crown and door moldings, 2? thick paneled lacquered doors, white-oak herringbone floors in public rooms and wide-plank in private zones, high-end millwork cabinetry and wall paneling, beautiful windows, and 6 working fireplaces (2 wood-burning and 4 gas), each with an exquisite antique or reproduction stone mantel. Each bathroom is unique and features luxurious marble, tilework, and fixtures.

The garden floor is home to a guest or staff suite and a spectacular eat-in chef?s kitchen with a massive marble slab island with integrated sink, a LaCanche 7-burner double oven range with a custom-fabricated hood, 60? professional grade Sub-Zero refrigerator/freezer, hand-painted Morrocan tile floor, extensive custom solid-wood cabinetry, a walk-in pantry, and painted wood ceiling. Large enough to also function as a family room, with dining and sitting areas, and a wall of gorgeous steel casement windows and doors opening to the blue-stone patio garden. The private patio leads to an extraordinarily beautiful and rare communal garden shared by only 5 townhomes and St John?s in the Village Church, which maintains it.

State of the art amenities include multi-zone central HVAC and humidification systems, radiant-floor heating in the kitchen and baths, on-demand Buderus hot water heaters, Sonos-controlled AV system with wired speakers in every major room, and a security system.
