27 East 11th Street was built in Greek Revival style, with a handsome stoop, elegant cornices and distinctive wrought ironwork at both the stoop and front areaway enclosure. The original, characteristic wrought ironwork has been fully restored and still stands today. No. 27 was part of an original row of 4 townhomes from No. 23 - 29 built together in the 1840s for different owners.

The front facade has been magnificently restored to reflect the home's original charming features including the wrought iron railing, balcony, historic gas lamp and re-appointed brick. Delightful shutters along the windows have been added as well.

Samuel Holmes, a dry goods merchant, made his home at No. 27, which had been built for him in 1845. In the years that followed, 27 East 11th Street became home to Willard Travell, a notable doctor of the late 1800s - early 1900s, and his family. It is the birthplace of Willard's daughter, Janet Travell, who was elected as the first female White House physician.



The fully finished basement affords a wonderful wine cellar with temperature control, a lounge area that can also be used as a gym, media room, laundry room, bathroom, and building mechanicals. A custom-built entertainment wall unit and bookshelves line the lounge/gym and media room. The home's elevator serves this floor to all levels, and the unit for the central vacuum system is located on this floor.

Garden Floor

The home's gracious, beautifully planted garden affords a gas fireplace, an Alfresco BBQ grill with stainless steel cabinetry and outdoor refrigerator, and a snow removal system beneath the blue stone pavers. This outdoor space is wonderful for entertaining, adjacent to the grand chef's kitchen with over 10-foot ceilings. The private garden is accessed by a set of 3 large French doors which can all be opened to allow for indoor/outdoor dining. The eat-in chef's Allmilmo kitchen has white oak herringbone floors, remote-controlled cabinetry and a Ceasarstone center island. The kitchen is fully equipped with dual Miele ovens, a built-in expresso maker, Gaggenau refrigerator and dishwasher, Subzero wine cooler and Dornbracht faucets. A large pantry with a dumbwaiter serves this level and the Parlor Floor above. There is a separate guest bedroom suite on this level with a full en suite bath and access to a private entrance underneath the stoop. The planted front entryway under the stoop also has a built-in snow removal system and is lit by a historic gas lamp.

Once owned by a 19th and 20th century literary savant that counted Twain, Kipling and Roosevelt among his group of friends (and, perhaps, as guests within his home), 337 West 87th is a 6-story, single-family row house that has been impeccably restored to meet the demands of modern day living. The mansion-like home boasts 8,000 SF of interior space, 1,700 SF of outdoor space, 6 bedrooms (convertible to 7), 8.5 bathrooms, 4 fireplaces, an elevator that services each floor, and a host of sophisticated touches that include things like a hand-crafted wine cellar and wiring for total smart home technology.

The primary living area is spread across the home?s Garden and Parlor Floors. The Garden Floor features a guest bedroom suite (complete with a private bathroom, an attached kitchenette, and a separate entrance), a powder room, a masterfully-finished kitchen, a breakfast nook with a vertiginous, double-height ceiling, and access to a manicured garden space lined with bluestone pavers and wrapped in a teak wood fence. The kitchen is fitted with Bianco Statuario marble countertops and backsplash, custom walnut cabinets, top-of-the-line appliances (including a Sub-Zero refrigerator and wine cooler, a 36-inch Wolf stove with a dual fuel range, a double Miele oven, and Dornbracht fixtures), and a massive, eat-in island. On the Parlor Floor sit the home?s spacious living and dining rooms, a powder room lined with Calcatta marble and tastes of the ornately-carved woodwork that once ran throughout the home. While the living and dining rooms each have their own fireplaces, the dining room also has a custom wet bar, access to a small balcony that overlooks the garden, and a unique, overhanging view of the breakfast nook that sits one level below.

The Third Floor is given entirely to a luxurious master suite, which contains a pair of walk-in closets, a palatial master bedroom with its own sitting room and attached half-bath, and a lavish master bathroom. The master bathroom features grey marble floors and walls, a cavernous walk-in shower with dual rain showerheads, and a dreamy, free-standing bathtub set against a bay window and flanked by separate his and hers vanities. The Fourth Floor is comprised of a pair of split-wing bedrooms (each with their own ensuite bathrooms and private closets and the north-facing room with access to a private terrace) while the Fifth Floor holds a bedroom and a space that functions as a second living room/entertainment room but, being served by its own full bathroom, can easily become an additional bedroom. The Sixth Floor of the home consists of a single bedroom with its own wet bar, a full bathroom, and a brace of large terraces, one facing north and the other facing south. Above that sits an immaculate roof deck upon which views of the surrounding buildings fill the sky.

Completing the home is a fully finished Cellar Floor with an open recreation space (currently set up as a gym/playroom), a hand-made wine room crafted from reclaimed wood, a laundry room, a spa-like bathroom with a steam shower, extra storage space, and a mechanicals room.

Less than a block away from Riverside Park, just over 3 blocks from Central Park, and graced with all the amenities of a modern lifestyle, this magnificent home remains what it was when its foundation was first laid down, a dream.
