Perfection on Waverly. Walk down Waverly Place and you will be surrounded by stunning townhouses, wisteria, cherry blossoms, and marigolds blooming. There really may not be a prettier block in all of New York City. It is quiet and idyllic.
Now enter 243 Waverly. The first thing you will notice is the fantastic layout and high ceilings throughout. The entry floor has an inviting living room and separate casual living space for relaxing, game playing, or watching TV. Downstairs is an amazing entertaining space with professional chef's kitchen, dining room, outdoor space for grilling, and dining al fresco. On a snowy night you can also enjoy the Japanese soaking tub for a true Zen-like experience under the stars.
As you go upstairs, you have the children's/guest floor, with two adjacent oversized bedrooms, each with an ensuite bathroom. Each room is outfitted with built in trundle bunk beds, so there is plenty of room for friends. The top floor is the master suite floor with a bedroom, master bathroom, and an oversized office or sitting room. The master bath has non-fogging mirrors with a fabulous double shower, which is enclosed to prevent condensation on the skylights above. This may be the most beautiful place in the house to see the sky changing colors.
What you can't readily notice, but makes all the difference, is what is behind the walls and the attention to detail throughout. The owners gutted this home 8 years ago and took painstaking efforts to make sure it was built to the highest level of quality. The house is wired for Ethernet/CAT-5/coaxial to every room, the kitchen is also wired for sound, a continuous water heater and water tank (so you never run out of hot water), and a new roof. There is an abundance of thoughtfully designed storage. Every fireplace has its own special finish: white gold leaf on the kitchen floor, mother of pearl for the parlor, green marble for living room/library, and butterscotch marble on the top floor. And last but not least a raised floor in the finished basement which has never flooded even during Hurricane Sandy.
All of this on Waverly Place in the West Village of New York City. This 1888 Romanesque revival town house was designed by William Tuthill, architect of Carnegie Hall. It's one of his precious few remaining residential buildings in the city. It just doesn't get better than this.
