This two-floor two-bedroom garden apartment in an elegant Gramercy townhouse at 134 East 16th Street makes great use of subterranean space for more than just laundry, adding a cedar wine cellar, screening room and more for $3.15 million. The main garden floor is even more impressive with a gorgeous hinged glass wall that opens onto 1,000 square feet of pretty city garden.
Comprising the full-floor lower unit of a boutique townhouse cooperative, this unique maisonette has a private entrance, 2,370 square feet of living space (if you count the lower level) and a heavenly landscaped garden. Enter through a dramatic gallery that’s perfect for displaying your art collection.
The arched gallery opens into a spacious living/dining room with stunning garden views through double-hinged glass doors and a floor-to-ceiling window, offering a seamless transition between indoor and outdoor living.
The kitchen is sedate and efficient, with lots and lots of cherry wood cabinetry, granite worktops, a six-burner Wolf convection oven, a SubZero refrigerator and two Bosch dishwashers.
A sophisticated master bedroom offers historic details like a tin ceiling, a decorative fireplace with a marble mantle and a custom walk-in mahogany closet. The ensuite bath is accented with marble herringbone tiles, a glass enclosed shower, fixtures by Waterworks and heated floors.
Also on this floor you’ll find a small second bedroom and another marble-clad bath.
Descending to the cellar level brings the surprise of a thoroughly fancy finished living space containing a home office, a separate movie room and a wine enthusiast’s dream of a 1,200-bottle temperature-controlled cedar cellar. You’ll also find the less surprising–but no less useful–laundry space.
In addition to the prime location, thoroughly modern updates add up to that $3.15 million price tag including white oak floors, custom mahogany doors, a central HVAC system, Nest thermostats, wiring for smart home automation and an outdoor grill gas line. The listing describes the six-unit building as a “flexible cooperative,”–two words you don’t always hear together–meaning that guarantors, co-purchasers and pied-a-terres are allowed.
