Sun-filled, Elegant Single-Family Townhouse
Historic Details Infused with Contemporary Design

Located in the heart of the West 80s, this townhouse has six levels of living space and is an excellent balance of traditional features and modern amenities. Reconverted from a multi-family to a single-family townhouse in 2006, this home had undergone an additional extensive renovation in 2012 and 2013. The upgrades include: renovations to the wine cellar and gym, new floors and cabinets in the cellar level, new mantels throughout, new kitchen downstairs, all bathrooms renovated, new wallpaper, reconversion of the master dressing room, new home office on the 4th floor, upgraded HVAC, and access to the terraces on two floors.

Much of the original detailed woodwork has been kept intact including parquet floors, moldings, mantelpieces, transom windows, and banisters. Select panels and doors have also been repurposed within the house to meld the old and the new.

Boasting soaring ceilings and light-filled rooms, this home is warm and welcoming. It features six fireplaces, a top-of-the-line kitchen with Miele and Viking appliances, a grand master suite, home gym, and a 1,000 bottle wine cellar. There are also several outdoor spaces including private terraces on the third and fourth floors, a multi-level back deck off the parlour floor, and a rear garden with tidy paver stones and mature trees.

Due to the fact the owner insisted on custom renovations, the quality of materials and attention to detail is second to none. You'll never find this level care with a developer-renovated home.

Garden Level:
A private, gated entrance under the stoop leads to a hospitable foyer with built-in seating and storage where one can transition out of the hustle and bustle of the city. The garden front room is flooded with light and features a fireplace. It can serve as a guest room or home office. Adjoining it is a galley style kitchen with full-size appliances and a lovely glass tile backsplash. The remaining two-thirds of the floor flows into an open family room with exposed brick, custom shelving, and glass doors that access the garden. There is also a renovated full bath on this floor.

Parlour Level:
As you enter the parlour level, pass through double doors and the vestibule into a graceful entrance hall complete with original wainscoting, ornately carved mirror and bench, and a splendid staircase. Townhouse aficionados will appreciate the details and level of care that went into preserving much of the woodwork on this floor. Journey into the parlour front and behold soaring ceilings, an exquisite original hearth and mantelpiece, and stained glass transom windows. The formal dining room also maintains a sense of traditionalism with another fireplace and wide chair rail. More double doors lead to a sunlit eat-in kitchen at the rear of the floor. With clean lines, top-notch appliances, and a view into the garden below, this kitchen will bring joy to professional and amateur chefs alike.

Third Floor:
The third floor contains a floor-through Master Suite. The well-appointed rear bedroom features an original fireplace and French doors that lead to a private terrace. The master bathroom is an oasis decked in modern amenities including floor to ceiling marble tile, a soaking jacuzzi tub, steam shower, and double vanity. A modern dressing area with his and hers closets, dedicated shoe storage, wet bar, and gorgeous original flooring connect the bedroom to the front sitting room. The front room boasts three large windows and another wonderful fireplace.

Fourth Floor:
A sizeable sunny bedroom with original moldings and fireplace occupies the front of this floor. A full bath can be accessed from both the front bedroom and the hallway. The rear of the floor has a sleek home office with custom cabinetry and wall-paneling. There are also French doors
