Ideally situated in the heart of the Flatiron District on East 20th Street between Park Avenue South and Broadway- adjacent to Gramercy Tavern, the 5th and 6th floor duplex at 40 East 20th Street provides the winning combination of breathtaking scale and volume of space, a crisp modern renovation, and the perfect floorplan for today's lifestyle.
Your private elevator opens directly into an impressively scaled room of ideal proportion- a lounge measuring 28 feet long by 22 feet wide, with 20 foot double height ceilings. Flooded with light from two banks of windows, this is a space with unlimited potential for creative use and design. The 18 foot long open kitchen was renovated to perfection and features a six burner Viking stove, Sub-Zero fridge, custom white cabinetry and a 10 foot long quartz waterfall island with seating for four. A separate laundry room with full capacity machines, storage and a walk-in pantry completes this ideal use of space.
The powder room for guests is ideally positioned off the central hall for discreet access. A floor to ceiling pocket door slides to reveal the king size master suite with two custom walk-in closets, one with a window, and an oversized master bathroom clad with Carrera subway tile, double vanity, spacious step-in shower, and linen cabinet and additional storage for you own private apothecary.
A stunning architectural staircase leads to an epically scaled approximately 500 square foot mezzanine loft which overlooks the double height lounge and is the quintessential home office or studio space, screening, or game room. With 9 foot ceilings, this is the missing piece that so many homes are lacking; casual entertaining, or creative functional workspace. Beyond the loft you will find two bright bedrooms each with beautifully renovated en-suite baths, one with a tub, high ceilings, and custom closets.
This impressive duplex home offers elevator access to both levels, multi-zone AC, solid hardwood flooring throughout, cinematic bespoke lighting, visually interesting historic city views, and bathed in all-day natural light. In essence, a private house in a boutique pre-war condominium.
40 East 20th Street is a converted turn of the 20th century industrial printing house and houses 6 private homes, and features a common roof deck, and very reasonable common charges and real estate taxes, three blocks from Gramercy Park, Union Square Park, and Madison Square Park surrounded by world renown restaurants, shopping, and cafes.
