Located in the heart of Chelsea, PHB is currently configured with 3 bedrooms (and can seamlessly be converted to 4), 3.5 bathrooms, library-office, eat-in kitchen, separate dining room and also features a 375 sq ft outdoor patio directly off of the massive great room as well as a 645 sq ft roof top deck with captivating 360 degree views. There is an ideal separation between the living space and bedrooms in this expansive 4000+ sq ft home, making it perfect for grand scale entertaining while also offering cozy and intimate spaces.
Upon entering the upper duplex level, there is a large foyer edged in custom polished Venetian plaster walls showcasing the grand glass and walnut staircase. Beyond and off to the right is the great room that has floor-to-ceiling windows showcasing the brilliant downtown views as well as a double-sided fireplace crafted from Basiltina stone, recessed lighting, museum reveal ceilings and American Black Walnut floors. Directly off of the great room is the fully-landscaped patio, equipped with lighting and sound.
Next, the full-sized dining room with a fireplace leads into the chef's kitchen, which has appliances by Gaggenau and Sub-Zero. The kitchen has 2 ovens, 2 dishwashers, 2 built-in steamers, and a wine-refrigerator. Completely renovated and customized with no detail overlooked, it is fitted with honed Basiltina countertops and custom cabinetry. There is also a walk-in pantry and Wenge Wood double pocket doors, which turn the kitchen into a fully-enclosed private chefs space.
One flight down leads to the gracious master suite, with North views to the Empire State Building and South views to downtown.
