Set on one of the finest Gramercy townhouse blocks shared with 32 other townhomes of varying styles, 335 East 18th Street is a lovingly maintained 20 foot wide, four-story house on a 92 foot deep lot that bathes in the sunlight shining through its south facing windows.
This charming townhome features preserved period details, upgraded mechanicals and central air conditioning. The voluminous parlor floor has the original patterned tin ceilings that soar 12 ft high. The space is divided by elegant pocket doors into a grand entertaining room facing 18th st, and a more intimate study/den facing the back garden. Both rooms have beautifully restored parquet floors and tall french windows that fill the grand space with light. There is also a separate bar and a powder room on this level. One floor up are the 2 main bedrooms, each with ensuite bath and original wide plank pine floors. The top floor rests under the sloping roof line and houses a 3rd bedroom and a unique loft space currently used as an office/playroom, but could also perfectly fit an informal family room, media room, or home gym. Additionally, the space could be creatively reimagined as a full floor primary suite.
The entrance to the house is on the ground floor where the homeowners can gather in the open concept kitchen and dining room that opens onto a beautiful and serene private garden. The deep and fully programmed outdoor space with its stone patios and wood framed planting beds is unmistakably the star of the house. Surrounded by many other townhouse gardens on all sides, it is a pleasant and amazingly quiet refuge to enjoy year round. Also on ground level is an intimate library that could be utilized as a 4th bedroom. Below is a full cellar that houses the mechanicals and accommodates an abundance of storage.
At approximately 4,000 square feet, the house is located outside the Historic District and can be expanded to 5,500 square feet with a rear extension and/or a 5th floor penthouse. 335 East 18th Street is around the corner from Stuyvesant Square Park, Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s. In 5 minutes you’re in Union Square to the west, with its revered farmer’s market, and the East Village to the south. Also nearby are Friends Seminary, PS40, UNIS and other neighborhood schools. Number 335 blends historic charm and detail with convenience and access to the best that Gramercy has to offer. Co-exclusive with Leslie J. Garfield.
