This rarely available Gramercy triplex in a classic brownstone cooperative allows for the privacy of townhome living in one of Manhattan's most elegant downtown neighborhoods. On the entry level, the expansive living room, with a soaring double-height ceiling (16'6" feet), oversized windows with northern exposure, painted exposed brick and a wood-burning fireplace, creates a stunning backdrop for entertaining and relaxing. A separate dining area easily seats eight or more.
The spacious European-style kitchen with Fisher and Paykel stainless steel appliances features a pass through with breakfast bar, a center island with sink and cooktop, a wall oven and a microwave, a dishwasher, a refrigerator with ice maker, generous cabinet storage and a full pantry closet.
Overlooking the living room is the mezzanine loft, which can be used as a home office, a den, a guest room or converted into a third bedroom, and has a walk-in closet and built-in bookshelves. The newly renovated bathroom on this level features a full tub with rainforest shower and marble mosaic tile flooring.
On the upper level, the two bedrooms, both with painted exposed brick, offer a quiet respite from the activities of the day with windows facing a quiet, tree-lined street. The large bedroom suite can fit a king-sized bed and additional furniture. A separate dressing area contains a walk-in closet, a separate shoe closet and a ten-drawer dresser. The en-suite bathroom has a marble-topped vanity with dual sinks, a full tub and shower and linen storage. The second bedroom can fit a queen-sized bed.
There are oak wood plank hardwood floors throughout the home and ample closet space on each level. The entry level, the mezzanine loft and the upper level can be accessed from either the wood slat staircase within the home or from the building's elevator, if needed.
Located in the Stuyvesant Square Historic District within Gramercy Park, 230 East 18th Street has a laundry room in the lower level of the complex and a building superintendent.
