Ever wondered what £22 million could buy you across the pond?
Located on one of Greenwich Village’s most bucolic tree-lined blocks, this stunning 21 foot wide New York townhouse has just undergone an extensive renovation, and features interiors by designer Brad Ford, as well as a landscaped garden, balcony and roof terrace by Harrison Green.
Spread over 7,411 square feet, this 5 bedroom, 6 bathroom New York townhouse is noteworthy for both its handsome Italianate brick façade, and it's unexpectedly modern interiors.
Because while it dates back to 1852, the interiors are a far cry from old or stuffy.
Sun-filled, open and airy, the New York townhouse is spread over five floors plus a basement, and has over 1400 square feet of manicured gardens and terraces too – a luxury for central New York properties.
A stunning staircase climbs up the five floors, but there's a private elevator too for quick and effortless nips upstairs – useful too for sending items up and down the house.
The staircase was one of the areas that underwent extensive renovation work, and the stairwell was opened up so that the skylight can flood the whole staircase with natural light.
Redesigned by designer Brad Ford, the townhouse features stunning attention to detail and beautiful finishes.
Decorative ornamental plasterwork adds further grandeur to the living room, which features a marble fireplace and south facing floor to ceiling windows overlooking the beautiful gardens. Walls are decorated with custom wood panelling.
The first floor features soaring ceilings at nearly 13 feet high, and herringbone floors made from a cerused quarter-sawn white oak.
There are plenty of rooms to entertain in, including a stunning wine bar and coffee room, wrapped in a Dean Barger mural.
There's a cosy TV den too, with a snug Roche Bobois corner sofa.
The stunning kitchen features a modern kitchen island with breakfast bar, a Florence Officine Gullo range cooker with a pot filler (a tap that comes out of the wall above the hobs, making it easier to fill pots with water), Gaggenau appliances, two aged brass sinks and beautiful granite worktops.
Crittall style doors open onto a stylish bi-level garden which was designed by Harrison Green.
The master bedroom sits upstairs on the fourth floor and has its own wood burning fireplace. The modern four poster bed, wall lights and woven wallcovering add to the room's luxe, grown-up look.
A dressing room corridor leads through to a luxe bathroom clad in breccia capraia marble with a custom fireplace mantel.
The other four bedrooms are not to be snubbed at either. Each one features generous proportions and gorgeous decor, and they each come with their own ensuite bathroom too.
While they would all make great (and generously sized) guest bedrooms, we also love the current decor; two cool teen bedrooms, and two childrens' bedrooms – one of which has its own private balcony.
Aside from the gorgeous manicured garden below, the house has a stunning roof terrace too – also by Harrison Green.
Down in the basement there's a gym, playroom, powder room and laundry room (one of two in the house).
The property is for sale through sothebysrealty.com for a cool £22 million.
