In a fortunate spot where the Flatiron district and Chelsea meet, this architect-designed two-bedroom duplex at 31 West 16th Street feels like a private house. A private entrance in the pre-war townhouse building leads to an interior where timeless details were created with an eye for design and for providing all the comforts of 21st-century city living. But what really makes this $3.65 million listing exceptional is the large, gorgeous garden in the rear.
Inside, 16-foot ceilings and double height-windows add drama and sunlight. The home’s upper level features an open plan kitchen with an adjacent dining area highlighted by a Schonbek chandelier.
The sleek and understated chef’s kitchen is anchored by a stainless steel island and features a built-in espresso maker and appliances from Viking, Bosch, Miele, and Liebherr.
Through a set of French doors, the home’s master suite offers garden views and plenty of storage. The accompanying master bath has all the proper spa perks from a radiant heat floor to a soaking tub.
An architect designed home office with a customized desk station built for two and built-in shelving is a perfect backdrop for video/conference calls and planning world domination.
Down a custom steel floating staircase, the home’s lower level is lit by a second spectacular Schonbek chandelier and features a dramatic modern wood-burning fireplace set into a 16-foot-high high granite wall. Radiant heat floors line the lower level, which also rocks automated shades, a 16-foot drop-down movie screen, and integrated sound. A built-in mid-century inspired bar features walnut cabinets, travertine, and bronze detailing. Add a wine refrigerator and a powder room and you have the perfect entertaining space for any size crowd.
A second bedroom with an en-suite bath is ready for overnight guests.
In warmer months, bring the crowd outside to a landscaped garden oasis complete with a fire pit, outdoor kitchen, built-in Viking grill and an automated irrigation system.
In addition to having integrated audio-visual electronics, the home offers a washer and dryer and a Mitsubishi four-zone split central air conditioning system.
