Your dream home has arrived. Steps from Gramercy Park on coveted Irving Place, residence 3A at 61 Irving Place is a stunning mint 3 bedroom 3 bathroom with an extraordinary great room and a masterpiece renovation by architect and designer Matt Berman.
After you step off the elevator onto what feels like a private landing, you enter the home and you are immediately taken by the enormous open living and dining space. The focal point of the home, this expansive room features soaring ceilings, exposed brick, a built-in bar and Sub Zero wine cooler, numerous oversized windows looking out onto 18th Street, and an exposed steel column.
On the eastern side of the room is an incredible built-in moving-book shelf that opens and closes to reveal an office, the master bedroom, and a huge amount of storage space. A hidden moving ladder is tucked into the wall by the front door waiting to be used to decorate the shelves or store items in the enclosed storage above. This area also features a hidden projector in the bookshelf that opens up while a movie screen comes down mid-room, allowing you to keep a television out of your entertaining space and at the same time providing for an incredible home cinema experience. A six zone Sonos system, all built into walls or ceilings, is perfect for audiophiles.
The kitchen looks out onto the great room and features Caesarstone countertops, white glossy cabinets, and top of the line appliances by Sub Zero, Wolf, and Bosch. Tucked behind the kitchen are the private two bedrooms, one with a bathroom across the hall and the other with an en suite bathroom featuring a deep linen closet. A lovely built-in bookcase frames the space beautifully.
The architect and owner thought through every detail in creating both a beautiful and functional home. Each room offers hidden storage space and no area was more thoughtfully conceived than the master suite. The entrance to the master suite is hidden in the middle of the moving shelves near the living room. The Zen-like private getaway features oversized windows overlooking 18th Street, a fully outfitted walk in closet, and a spa-like master bathroom. Two frosted glass sliding doors allow this gorgeous bathroom to be enclosed or open and the room offers double-sinks, a huge soaking tub, and steam shower with teak wood floor. The doors in the bathroom and bedroom can be adjusted to enclose the spaces, giving you ultimate privacy, or opening them up, creating a wonderful circular flow between the master bedroom, closet, and bathroom. A Bosch washer/dryer is tucked away discreetly within the master bathroom.
61 Irving Place is a historic co-op located between 17th and 18th Street on Irving Place. This prewar elevator building has undergone extensive renovations and features a marble lobby, laundry room, bike room, and storage room. The financials are in wonderful shape and there are currently plans to renovate the rooftop to create a luxurious open air space for residents to dine and entertain. Four commercial spaces owned by the coop keep the maintenance low. Close to everything and yet on a quiet, exclusive street just around the corner from Union Square, the location is absolutely perfect.
