NewYork, New York City, NY
216 East 30th Street is a triple-mint private residence that, has recently been gut renovated, expanded, and reimagined with the help of Mark Zeff Architecture & Interior Design along with Thames Builders.
At approximately 4,500 square feet of interior space and an additional 750 square feet of exterior, this home has been meticulously designed and appropriately laid out to maximize its greatest value. A rear yard extension on the lower two levels creates deep floor plates overlooking the 30’-deep, two-tiered landscaped garden and a rear facade of steel casement windows and doors.
A grand stoop entry and large front forecourt create privacy from the street. The parlor level is an open concept with approximately 11’ tall ceilings, central dining and entertaining bar, and a suburban sized kitchen with a large center island with a 3” thick marble slab and two sides of ample millwork and storage. The rear facade allows tremendous natural light to flood through the full-height window wall with a small Juliet balcony.
The primary level is full floor with a South-facing bedroom, a private bluestone terrace overlooking the lush garden, a central core of customized dressing closets, and a full width luxurious bathroom with dual vanities, steam shower, soaking tub, and three windows facing North.
The top level features three bedrooms of generous size and two bathrooms. The garden level is a perfect informal floor currently used as a home office, den, and service kitchen which leads directly to the garden. This unit could also function as a great guest suite and additional bedroom. The excavated cellar houses brand new mechanical systems and a home gym.
This prime Kips Bay location is a stone’s throw from public transportation, the East River Esplanade, Trader Joe’s, world-class dining and shopping options, and Grand Central Terminal. It is conveniently located in close proximity to the vibrant Gramercy and NoMad districts.
