Building & Unit Features
These side-by-side, twin layout homes offer residents the perfect urban luxury experience, pairing elite, modern home amenities and interiors with an historic setting. Originally built in 1888, the two homes have housed a variety of notable residents and owners, including John Dwight, a pioneering manufacturer of baking soda, his daughter Clara and her husband General Alexander Felix Ketchum, who served under President Abraham Lincoln during the Civil War, and most recently the famed dancer Loretta Abbott, one of the original founders of the Alvin Ailey Dance Company.
Since their completion in 1888, the twin homes have undergone numerous renovations and refurbishments, which have successfully ushered them into the 21st Century while allowing them to keep their Old-World charm. The renovation of 32 Mount Morris has been especially successful, and the newly revamped home showcases the perfect blend of classic ambience with modern amenities.
32 Mount Morris Park West boasts a fabulous primary master floor suite. Elite master bathroom furnishings include a cast-iron ceramic floating tub, original hardwood floors, imported Basalt Volcanic Stone His and Her vanities, original white marble fireplace, and unique heated flooring in the master shower. The master suite features connected master walk-in closet lined with cedar walls, a three-way dressing mirror, and stone island enhanced by original decorative molding. The opulent master bedroom sports cashmere walls, hardwood flooring, a hidden television, original marble fireplace, and a Juliet balcony fitted to original custom-made window shutters.
The central living areas of both homes are grand and spacious. The gourmet chefs kitchen in 32 Mount Morris Park is particularly plush, featuring an eat-in breakfast island topped with imported granite; top-of-the-line stainless steel Miele appliances, including Sub Zero fridge and double oven; and in-kitchen fireplace.
The combined, twin townhome property itself features 17 original fireplaces throughout, alongside various other special features, including a total of 26 rooms, 10 bedrooms, 13+ bathrooms, a penthouse-level gym, a rotunda roof top observatory, and a 2,200 square foot natural slated outdoor garden with water features. When merged, the twin homes have a shared size of 18,000 square feet. This is a very unique opportunity to buy a truly monumental, completely one-of-a-kind home in New York City. There is nothing else like it on the market right now. And, best of all, its located in one of the citys coolest neighborhoods, near iconic sights and sounds (Sylvias Restaurant, the Apollo Theater) and excellent shopping (a brand-new Whole Foods just around the corner).
