A rare offering in the heart of Downtown Manhattan.
Completely reimagined by famed architect Morris Adjmi—known for his astute renovations of historically significant properties, always with a modern twist—343 East 18th Street is a rare Gramercy Park residence combining historic detail and carefully considered contemporary updates.
No detail was overlooked in the meticulous gut renovation of this 20-foot-wide, approximately 6,000-square-foot home. The classic parlor floor offers 13-foot-tall ceilings, inlaid white oak floors, and sumptuous millwork. With a traditional townhouse flow, solid pocket doors open from the central stair hall to a sunny front parlor. Another set of pocket doors reveals a den that flows to the elegant rear formal dining room and adjacent wet bar/library with en suite bathroom. The entire level provides the ideal layout for welcoming guests while floor-to-ceiling casement windows capture leafy views and light to the front and rear.
On the garden level below, an oversized den and home office lead to lush backyard views in the eat-in kitchen featuring rows of marble-topped built-ins plus a gas fireplace. Outside, the professionally landscaped four-season garden features manicured plantings, lighting, handsome brickwork, and a bird fountain. A beautiful magnolia tree stretches four stories high and is filled with fragrant blossoms throughout spring and summer. Enjoy spectacular outdoor entertaining thanks to multiple seating areas and a convenient natural-gas barbecue.
Take the elevator to the spacious third floor of this refined townhome, which is currently used as an office. This floor is easily transformed to a master suite with oversized windows in rear at perfect tree-line height. The fourth floor features a stately bedroom suite with en suite marble bathroom and walk-in closet alongside a large library with a lovely private terrace overlooking the garden. On the fifth floor, you'll find a perfect one-bedroom residence with a skylit kitchen, plus a private terrace at both the front and back of the floor.
The building is topped by a breathtaking roof deck wrapped in wide-open views to the Empire State Building, the Chrysler Building, the New York Life Building, and beyond. There’s also an immaculate windowed sauna.
Lastly, the excavated full-height cellar offers additional storage recreation space with elevator access and an elevator to the front sidewalk.
343 East 18th Street is a stunning Italianate brownstone with high stoop entry, lovely wrought-iron work, and a charming forecourt. Positioned on a tree-lined townhouse block in desirable Gramercy Park, the building is a short walk to countless restaurants, shops, and nightlife venues. The newly designed Stuyvesant Square Park, famed Irving Place, Gramercy Park, and nearby Union Square provide open space and recreation on the surrounding blocks.
