Noted architect Thomas Ustick Walter was at the height of his career when he designed a block of brownstone "manor" houses along Pine Street. This four-story residence is c. 1854 and was returned to its glory in 2008 by the present owners and Towers & Miller Architects. Stretching back to Waverly with two off-street parking spaces, a roof deck with stunning city views and a fully updated two-bedroom apartment with separate entrance, this open, light-filled house is smartly designed, a delight for everyday living as well as entertaining. So many important renovations and updates were completed, including new, historically correct windows, insulation in walls and between floors, a restored and reinforced brownstone facade and rebuilt rear wall, new electric and plumbing, a new rubber roof, new HVAC systems and more. The floor plan has been modernized for the way people live today. An open-plan main level with 14'-high ceilings provides a casual living area that is open to a Wood-Mode chef's kitchen with two islands. The Thermador six-burner range with griddle and pot filler, full-size Sub-Zero wine chiller, exceptional storage and other fixtures are complemented by the Cervaiole marble countertops and backsplash and oak hardwood floors. Here and throughout the house, such original features as interior shutters, high ceilings and tall windows are timeless. A wide staircase leads to the lower level with a family room with a Spanish limestone accent wall and oak floor, a gym with a full bath with steam room and mechanical room and storage. On the second floor is a magazine-worthy, full-floor living/dining room with high ceilings, exposed brick wall, gas fireplaces in each area and French doors opening to Juliette balconies. Here and throughout, the home lends itself to an art collector with wall space and lighting galore. There is a supremely comfortable guest suite off this floor that is perfect for an au pair or long-term stay. It's privately situated and has a vaulted ceiling with skylights, a fully outfitted kitchenette with Sub-Zero refrigerator, range and dishwasher and a full bath. The third floor has an office, a lovely work space with French doors opening to a Juliette balcony, and a large guest bedroom with sitting area. A smartly designed Jack & Jill bath with extra-deep soaking tub/shower connects the two rooms. On the fourth floor is a true main suite, a private retreat loaded with creature comforts. The sleeping quarters, with a sealed gas fireplace, skylight with Hunter-Douglas power blinds and three windows with city skyline views and interior shutters, include a feature wall finished in timeless, neutral Nublado Portuguese stone. A dressing room and walk-in closet with furniture-finish built-ins is complemented by a series of custom-made built-in dressers topped in onyx. There is even a coffee bar to ease you into your mornings. The bath provides a walk-in, two-person shower, double console sink and Tundra Gray marble finishes. Perhaps saving the best for last, a roof deck with stunning city views awaits. Easily accessible through a "wheelhouse" entry where an onyx-topped built-in cabinet can serve as your bar for parties, this deck is a rarity for the neighborhood. Finished in easy-care Trex with outdoor speakers connected to the Sonos whole-house audio system, this outdoor perch is large enough for al fresco dining as well as lounging. Your view of the Kimmel Center and other nearby buildings will make you appreciate just how well-located this residence is. Add in its many modern conveniences, and this is an easy city house to move into whether your style is more contemporary or traditional. Schedule a Private Showing
