INTRODUCING: 8 Saint Lukes Place

Situated one of the most picturesque tree lined streets in the West Village, this stately, sophisticated, and serene home is the byproduct of the dynamic collaboration between renowned English architect David Chipperfield and interior designer, David Mlinaric.

Created to both entertain and enjoy, this 21' wide private residence is unlike any townhome offered in the West Village in the last decade. With unobstructed light pouring in from the 10' tall windows that open south over James J. Walter Park, the home offers open loft living in a gorgeous townhouse setting. From most rooms, one can see through the entire length of the home to the large landscaped garden with mature plantings designed by Miranda Brooks.

The centerpiece of the home is the jaw dropping architectural English oak staircase which grounds the home providing functionality and design while allowing light to dissipate through the home from a central skylight. The ground, parlor and third floors were created for guests to mingle and revel, but not to overstay their welcome. A single small guest suite with ensuite bath remains on the ground level for the rare overnight guest while the the fourth floor is devoted entirely to the private master suite. The luxurious master bath features a solid travertine bathtub with matching dual sinks, Dornbracht fixtures, rainfall shower, and separate WC.

The lower level features a large chefs kitchen, outfitted completely in stainless steel with top of line appliances, along with ample climate controlled wine storage for even the most prolific collector, in addition to separate laundry and a powder room.

Built to the highest standards, this is a unique opportunity to own an elegant townhouse on a beautiful block. This is truly an architectural masterpiece both inside and out and one to be enjoyed by the next owner for many years to come.

IN CONTRACT - While you can easily go to Central Park from this gem of a townhouse located on 64th Street off Park, there are days and evenings when you just want to stay in. That is when you will delight in opening the doors on to your private enchanted garden, just beyond your elegant living room.

This 20ft. residence was built back in 1881 and was occupied by one family from the turn of the century through l968, when it was purchased by the present owner. In 1941, the house was restructured as a two-family dwelling, but it can easily be converted back to a one-family residence. The house stands out in this elegant neighborhood for its wisteria vines which grace the stone facade from street level all the way to the top.

Upon entering, you are greeted by the feeling of open space. The huge windows on every floor create a very special light which permeates throughout. The ground floor living room with its elegant fireplace faces the lush oasis of your very own garden.

The parlor floor, above, features two large rooms with 11'2 ceilings. These rooms can be redesigned as spectacular entertainment space if the house is used as a one-family home, or used as bedrooms with baths if kept in their present state.

At present, the upper triplex is a self-contained, airy, well-lit, 3,600 sq.ft. space featuring a large living room and a dining room (with fireplaces) as well as 6 bedrooms and 3.5 baths. While the triplex is presently occupied, it will be delivered vacant.

This townhouse has limitless possibilities; bring your architect and make this historic home yours.

On a broad and sunny tree-lined avenue in the architecturally magnificent Mount Morris Park historic district awaits a re-envisioned 20-foot-wide Queen Anne style townhouse originally built in the 1890s and re-constructed (except the facade) from scratch in 2013. Seven carefully crafted levels comprise three sprawling duplex homes, each with dedicated outdoor space and expansive views of townhouse gardens. Modern luxury in a beautiful neighborhood setting.

Generously sized living spaces are open, airy and sun-drenched. Throughout the three residences consistently luxurious details abound: tri-fold glass doors, tilt-&-turn windows, porcelain tile roof decks, crisp Carrara marble bathrooms, custom light fixtures, top rated appliances, Omega cabinetry and built-in shelving. Radiant floor heating and oversized central AC systems coupled with energy efficient windows and spray foam insulation make these homes supremely comfortable, easy to maintain and blissfully quiet.

This flexible townhouse offers many possibilities. Live in one duplex and offset the cost of living with $11,700/month in rental income from the other two. There is room to grow. Create a mansion by combining the two upper units and swap the duplex stairs for an elevator (email for alternative floor plan). Looking for a reliable investment?

Or carry out an easy condo conversion - the building is already prepped with three separate gas, electric and water meters.
