There’s something about the grotto-esque garden duplex at 121 West 15th Street that makes us feel like we just stepped into a Disney movie. Perhaps it’s the soft edges and delightfully crooked banisters, or the whimsical fireman’s pole—yes, there’s a fireman’s pole. Whatever the case, this magical apartment may not be “the happiest place on earth,” but it will undoubtedly put a smile on your face.

It’s only fitting that such an enchanting place would sit on a quiet, tree-lined block behind a private gated entrance. The first room you’ll see when you enter is a quirky kitchen with curved concrete counters, top-of-the-line appliances, and a wood-burning fireplace. Off the kitchen is a dining room perched over the stunning the living room below.

The private master is accessed via catwalk. The suite features a wall of windows looking out over the garden, a cozy fireplace, an en suite bath, a huge walk-in cedar closet, and of course, the essential fireman pole for easy access to the lower level.

Speaking of that lower level, a dazzling, illuminated sweeping staircase next to a charismatic stone fireplace provides a dramatic entrance to the living room, which features a wet bar and a water feature. This floor also has the home’s two additional bedrooms, one of which has a wine cellar, interestingly enough.

As charming as this townhouse is, the true gem is the spectacular backyard. An adorable stairway with the home’s signature crooked wooden banisters leads to the incredible outdoor space, which has a two-story playhouse, outdoor wet bar, and teak hot tub. An additional bonus feature: the home comes with radiant heated floors inside and out, so shoveling snow is a thing of the past.
