Dwell Magazine Meets Manhattan's High Line
Our newest private listing is a stunningly modern masterpiece, converted from an ordinary suburban Tudor over the course of 30 loving years. The exquisite transformation was meticulously carried out and now marries sublime architecture, custom detailing and built-ins throughout. Designed by Meditch Murphey Architects, this bespoke home is truly one-of-a-kind. Bedazzlement begins at the entry, where stunning free-standing solid cherry clad steel stairs are flanked by glass stairwell walls and custom handrails stained in ebony.
The kitchen is a cook's paradise: limestone countertops, slate tile floors throughout kitchen, foyer and powder room, backsplashes of slate and cut glass tile, and cherry and maple semi and custom cabinetry. High end appliances include a 36” six burner Viking gas Range, a 48” side by side Sub Zero refrigerator/freezer, a Miele convection and regular wall oven, a Miele Futura Diamond dishwasher, a Gaggenau steam cooker, Thermador warming drawer, and a U-Line Wine Captain under counter wine cabinet. An auxiliary generator was installed to ensure that the wine would be safe should the power go down!
All interior rooms were nearly or entirely gutted — new wiring, plumbing, doors, drywall, and even some new flooring was installed. Cherry accents appear throughout all levels as a means to unify spaces down and up. And all the beds, cabinets, desk, a rolling door and more were custom designed to fit the space. In the master suite, a custom built birch bed was installed. White Corian, complementary porcelain tile and custom birch cabinetry throughout make the rooms flow seamlessly. The master bath is like none other with a Boffi soaking tub integrated by a connecting molded bench into the glass wall steam shower. Dual water closets with privacy doors, moulded sinks and integrated medicine cabinets complete the picture. A large window provides abundant light and offers touch button switchable fogging glass for privacy when desired.
Making The High Line Connection
Outside, landscaping inspired by the celebrated New York High Line urban park highlights a heated swimming pool that beckons you in complete privacy. Hardscapes throughout the property were designed and a plan for new plantings/gardens was created by Sandy Clinton, Clinton & Associates, a well-known landscape architecture firm. The new design and installation should reduce the cost of upkeep of the gardens as they mature.
The upper and lower decks feature cedar decking. And the expanded lower deck wraps around the side of the house to enhance the view of the landscape from the inside, and provide access to the gardens and pool. A screened porch extends enjoyment of the outside during the hottest months of the summer. Extensive lighting creates a wonderful outdoor paradise in the evening and at night while an integrated sprinkler system easily keeps the lush plantings happy and healthy.Request a Showing
