Townhouse Esme is a spectacular residence perched in the iconic East Village. This distinct property brims with historical intrigue, the building formerly used as a synagogue before its adaptation by world-renowned designers. Scintillating modern and eclectic this outstanding suite is attuned to New York City's insatiable urban pulse.
A gorgeous original facade dazzles with its original masonry, vertical arched windows making up a dramatic living area defined by 22 foot high ceilings. A soaring brick accent well is garnished with a sizeable postmodern piece, with funky purple and grey seating arrangements abound in playfulness and eclecticism. An innovative floorplan makes maximum use of the building's constraints accentuating vertical dimension, a gorgeous glass-lined staircase leading guests from the foyer to an elegant mezzanine. This space is replete with plush built-in seating adjacent to a timelessly grand marble fireplace and library nook teeming with globetrotting trinkets and an old-world romanticism. A streamlined open chef's kitchen flaunts gorgeous Italian granite, setting the scene for casual entertaining and gastronomic exploration. Four individually designed bedrooms accommodate eight in comfort and discretion.
From the elegant dining area with the original restored 19th century backlit Star of David sits a rear dining terrace beyond a wall of glass and steel windows and doors. Enjoy quiet time on the delightful terrace off the master with a hot tub for eight, or ascend the glass stairs to the top floor of the sun-drenched lounge. An oasis of calm in the heart of the urban jungle, the colorful and eclectic Townhouse Esme abounds with a serenity that one may only expect from a former house of worship.
