Built by Cybul Cybul Wilhelm Architects, the home is ideally suited for a variety of uses. It has been renovated from top to bottom, and includes 3-4 bedrooms, three separate outdoor spaces, and a significant amount of living, entertaining, and lounging space.
The front door opens to a gracious foyer area and you immediately understand the aesthetic of the home, where modern finishes blend with historic touches such as exposed brick. There is a lounge and garden on this level, as well as the enviable private garage.
Up the staircase to the parlor level, there is a modern kitchen complete with chef’s appliances, a step-down living room, and another outdoor space with views over townhouse gardens and of the Empire State.
The third floor houses two full-size, full-width bedrooms that share a full bath, both with terrific natural light and closet space. The top floor of the house is the full primary suite, with a large office/lounge area, enormous, spa-like primary bath with a sky light, soaking tub, stall shower, and large vanity, and oversized sleeping area. The ceiling in this room is made of a reclaimed wood and has access to the rooftop.
Also, the house has a fully finishes basement with original arches, that can easily be used as a gym, lounge, kids room, playroom, game room, or additional accessory space. There is a wine cellar down here as well, temperature-controlled.
With grand width, light, and irreplaceable features such as the garage and elevator, 453 Second Avenue fulfills the dream of townhouse living in a price point rarely offered.
