Once forest and farmland, the Jones Wood section of Lenox Hill is known for its “secret” gardens and historic townhouses. This five-story, 6,000-square-foot corner townhouse at 157 East 65th Street embodies the neighborhood’s beauty, with a London-style private garden at the back and top-floor terraces in front and rear. Asking $13,450,000, the townhouse has been thoroughly renovated, with an elevator that travels to all floors, from the basement gym to the top-level loft.

The five-bedroom, single-family property is filled with considered modern finishes like floor-to-ceiling glazing, rift-sawn oak floors, smart lighting, radiant heating, a surround-sound system, a full gym, a digital video alarm system, key-fob entry, and a full bar.

The grandest floor, of course, is the parlor level. This iconic entertaining space reveals the beauty of the garden below through walls of glass. Also on this floor are an elegant living room, a charming library, and a convenient bar.

On the garden level is the home’s kitchen, featuring radiant-heated stone floors. A large dining room offers a wood-burning fireplace and garden views and access. There are two entrances for seamless event management, and a convenient powder room.

On the third floor, the primary suite includes a large dressing room. A marble bath is highlighted by creative mosaic tiling. This full-floor suite also offers a second bedroom or sitting room. On the fourth floor are two more bedrooms and two baths, both with radiant heating.

The top floor offers a tranquil, loft-like pair of rooms, each with its own terrace. At the back, a spacious bedroom has garden views. At the front of the house, a light-filled loft space has a skylight above and a private treetop terrace.

The home’s lowest level is no less of an important addition to daily life. In addition to the home’s mechanicals, this floor offers a full-height gym, a laundry room, a powder room, and storage.
