Apartment Description

Truly a masterpiece of period design and the inspired use of reclaimed historical materials, this ca. 1825 South Street Seaport townhouse was gut renovated and restored over a 2 1/2 year period by a noted photographer and director.

On a quaint and serene cobblestone street which captures the spirit of early 19th Century New York this published home features a refined design aesthetic and soaring interior spaces centered around a spectacular 4-story high open staircase. In the owner's words, "Every fixture, every light bulb and every doorknob were deeply considered". The result is a compelling blend of both historical and industrial influences, artfully combined with the modern amenities which discerning buyers seek. The chef's kitchen features a custom designed La Cornue range (which took 18 months to construct), a full coterie of high end appliances by Sub-Zero and Miele, and a vintage soapstone double sink reclaimed from an upstate farmhouse.

The level of detail in this property must be seen to be appreciated. For example, the home's enormous floorboards and ceiling beams were reclaimed from an 18th century barn in upstate New York. The doors in living room are from an English country house and the property features numerous similar bespoke details throughout. A cozy English library in the living room has a "secret panel" motif that swings open to reveal an over sized flat screen television. The centerpiece of the master bath is a freestanding 6 ft porcelain soaking tub which belonged to to the headmistress of a private girl's school in California. Opposite the bathtub is an ebony black apothecary cabinet which has been retrofitted with an antique marble sink. The crowning rooftop garden affords glimpses of ships' masts on the East River.

*Note that the listing photos show townhouse as previously furnished; the townhouse will be rented unfurnished.
