With the added strength of steel and concrete, the Townhouse and Coach House are rebuilt to last, modernized, and technologically advanced, enhancing all the characteristics that make townhouse living desirable.  The property is five stories with the flexibility of a five bedroom suite plus 3 powder rooms, a custom elevator direct to all floors. Each floor has floor-ceiling acoustically sound 12′ wide windows and sliding doors.

The entertainment and great room encompasses the entire 2nd level with a massive stone, gas fireplace with an open light well above.  A serene family room resides on the 3rd level with a powder room, plus a bedroom suite. The 4th level has two bedroom suites and the 5th level is the private penthouse master suite with a huge spa inspired bathroom.

The roof top level has about 300 sf. of outdoor living space with Sonos speakers and open views of the surrounding townhouse gardens.

The first entrance level is the entire kitchen and dining area with powder room.  Through large glass kitchen doors one can access the 453 sq limestone courtyard with its 15′ tall emerald green trees.  A 15’long outdoor grill with gas, fridge and sink, plus lighting and speakers complete the entertainment aspect of the courtyard.


The Coach House is 1220 sf. and the first level has a Poliform kitchen with powder room, great room with a 12 x 12 foot sky light and wood burning fire place.  The second level includes a bedroom with spa bathroom.  The Coach House offers amazing lifestyle flexibility with different uses; a nanny house, guest accommodations, hobby house, painter’s studio, business hub, yoga studio, fitness center, or a get-away retreat.

The secret underground passageway privately connects both houses and along the passageway there are custom storage closets, a huge laundry facility, 150 bottle climate controlled wine room, plus the addition of a large storage room with plumbing for an additional bathroom (would make a great sauna room).  Also housed in the passageway are all the new mechanical, plumbing, electrical and technology rooms.

Advanced Smart Home Technology-All floors have a smart pad to customize all systems for your comfort in addition to an app that is available for your phone and/or ipad.

There is a back-up generator that will run both homes in case of an emergency.
