Even from the sidewalk, it’s apparent that 410 2nd Street is an exceptional home. The single-family brick townhouse was designed by Architectural Digest’s Top 100 Designer Mitchell Turnbough and custom built in 2016, creating 2,800 square feet of urban luxury living across three floors plus 1,500 square feet of private outdoor space, including a roof deck with New York City views.
Classic architectural details and resplendent finishes marry the traditional and modern for a refreshingly unexpected space. The white oak hardwood floors running throughout were salvaged and hand cut for a custom effect with wide planks ranging from six to 11 inches. 10-foot also custom steel entry doors complement the loft-height ceilings. And hand-pressed red brick is everywhere you look.
The main entrance is a sophisticated take on the street level: Frosted safety glass obscures a double-height light-filled atrium that’s as much a sunroom as it is a front foyer. Floor-to-ceiling windows and the custom steel door bring you immediately into the main space with room enough for any living/dining layout, crowned by two hand-laid 24k gold leaf chandeliers.
Beyond the main space, the kitchen recalls the galley of a world-class yacht with sleek lines and latching hardware. Classic white custom cabinetry is coupled with grey slate countertops for a magnificent look and the glass backsplash is equal parts stunning and easy to clean. Top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances include a Sub-Zero refrigerator, two Sub-Zero freezers, a Sub-Zero wine cooler, a Wolf gas cooktop, and two Wolf convection wall ovens. The kitchen also features an installed 55” Sony television.
The large center island is an impressive single slab of slate and seats at least eight, but what really draws the eye and evokes that nautical inspiration is the breakfast nook bathed in sunlight by the 100-square-foot skylight above. And brass sconces reminiscent of an antique ocean liner complete the look.
Ascend the architectural floating staircase to the second floor for an additional living area that is actually a fully realized media room with a 106” retractable movie screen. Also on the second floor are three bedrooms, a full bath, and an outdoor deck.
The third floor of the home is dedicated exclusively to the master suite and is truly a retreat between the roof terrace with sweeping NYC views and the sumptuous spa bath. The 72” freestanding cast iron bathtub is the true centerpiece and a regal contrast to the large walk-in shower complete with skylight. A swirling grey and white palette of imported Italian marble soothes and the shiny chrome of the mirrors and sconces adds a little glamour. A water closet, heated floors, and custom glass towel rods are the final luxe touches.
Modern conveniences include Nest thermostats with a separate zone for each floor, Verizon FIOS, and hardwired ethernet ports throughout. One-car indoor garage parking with nine years remaining on a ten-year lease is available, as well as the opportunity to purchase a covered spot with storage. And the biggest modern convenience of all is the proximity to the Grove Street PATH station — just a seven-minute walk — for an effortless Manhattan commute.
410 2nd Street is asking $2,495,000 and, simply put, is an extremely rare and exquisite property. For a personal private showing, contact Marc Brenner at 201.920.8563 or [email protected].
