327 East 51st Street
Turtle Bay/In Contract
Graciously located on one of the area’s most beautiful and charming blocks, 327 East 51st Street’s maintained facade, gated courtyard and traditional stooped entry provides a quintessential New York City feel. Completely rebuilt and expanded in 2006, injecting a functional and modern elegance, while maintaining the 1890s’ provenance of the building. During the gut renovation, mechanical, plumbing, lighting and electrical systems were updated. The functional details of the home have been thoroughly considered to include new Crestron home audio system, 4-zone HVAC system, four automatic gas fireplaces, state of the art security system and abundance of storage space.
The garden level, with a private entrance, features a large living room, state of the art, modern and spacious Smallbone chef’s kitchen with top of the line appliances and an informal dining room that opens to the garden. The garden level provides access to the basement featuring cedar lined wine storage and fully equipped, state of the art exercise room.
The parlor level is absolutely perfect for entertaining, with 60 ft. of open living space. The living room features a gas fireplace and high ceilings which leads to the dining room with a dumb waiter and a private staircase to the kitchen. Towards the rear of the house is the Library, with an additional gas fireplace.
On the second level, the graciously appointed master suite boasts a large dressing room, spa worthy master bath and grand bedroom with three Juliet balconies and a gas fireplace. The master suite faces north allowing light to pour through the three sets of French doors. A second bedroom/master suite office is located down the hall toward the front of the home.
The 3 skylights on the 3rd floor allow for light to pour into the center media room. On either side of the media room are the 3rd and 4th bedroom, 2 full baths, and a large laundry room. 327 East 51st Street is a truly enchanting home that must be seen.
