526 East 5th Street is a 20 foot wide single family townhouse spanning over 5,200 square feet across four stories. Originally built in 1900, a modern restoration led by renowned architect Annabelle Selldorf resulted in masterful engineering paired with character rich details. The impressive features include a 35 foot deep extension, exceptional light through four exposures, wide plank reclaimed floors, and a triple exposure windowed kitchen. Conveniently located on a tree-lined street between Avenue A and B, this rare offering is steps to Tompkins Square Park. A true value at $1,249 per square foot.
GARDEN: Currently set up as a private home office/workspace, this flexible floorplan can be kept separate, opened to the parlor level, or used as a two bedroom, one bathroom rental apartment with a private entrance. The windowed living room and floor-to-ceiling sliding doors access the bluestone paved garden lined with lush landscaping, creating a vibrant yet private setting.
PARLOR: The beautifully crafted entrance hall with a built-out coat closet frames the heart of the home. Grounded by the marble mantle fireplace and custom designed staircase, the grand living/dining room transitions to the three exposure extension housing the stunning eat in kitchen. Crowned by floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors, the kitchen was redesigned to permit an open workspace flow. Designed for a chef, the top-of-the-line finishes include a six burner Viking range, seamlessly integrated Liebherr refrigerator and Miele dishwasher, as well as ample cabinetry. The blush marble countertops balance the black and white checkered floors while the large farmhouse sink overlooks the neighboring gardens. Stairwell access to the garden and a windowed powder room are also located on this level.
THIRD FLOOR: Three sunlit generously sized bedrooms and two full bathrooms surround the central skylight that floods light through out the floors. Currently used as a playroom, the North facing bedroom features three windows overlooking tree-lined East 5th Street. The central second bedroom faces South and shares a marble lined bathroom with Duravit fixtures and a deep soaking tub, a second washer/dryer, and linen closet. The Southern-most bedroom has three exposures, a juliet balcony and a private en suite bathroom.
FOURTH FLOOR: One of the highlights of this home is the entire fourth floor devoted to the master suite. Stretching across this level is the oversized master bedroom with a wood burning fireplace, dressing room, incredible windowed bathroom, and sunlit private den with exposed beams. This one-of-a-kind bathroom is lined with custom Moroccan fish scale tiles and features a dual vanity, claw foot tub and oversized stall shower. The charming den has floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors with a juliet balcony, a black marble powder room and a spiral staircase leading to the roof deck.
Additional amenities include a roof deck with treetop and downtown Manhattan views, a full sized laundry room on the garden level, brand new wiring and mechanicals, central AC, massive storage cellar and Citiquiet windows. This fully renovated, Annabelle Selldorf designed home is move in ready and a rare combination of volume, natural light, modern design and quintessential townhouse living.
