Though actress Uma Thurman’s large and lovely Gramercy pad, complete with key to the private park, has been in the news since it hit the market, you don’t have to be a celebrity to live in the classic Manhattan neighborhood. In fact, like Thurman, you might even be lucky enough to score a key to one of the city’s only two private parks (Sunnyside Gardens Park in Queens is the other). But even if you don’t live right on the park, Gramercy as a whole is one of the city’s most convenient, elegant and picturesque neighborhoods. But, this one-of-a-kind apartment comes with a key to Gramercy Park and can be yours for $1,1 milliion. Perched atop Gramercy Park’s only unattached townhouse, this beautifully appointed 1-bedroom, 2-bathroom home plus office/loft is the picture of style and comfort. Boasting gracious proportions and 11’ ceilings, this lovingly maintained home features exquisite prewar detail throughout, including wide-plank maple floors, custom moldings and oversized windows offering leafy park views.
Enter through a formal foyer into a sun-flooded, open living and dining area with a beautiful new marble fireplace and a wall of built-in shelving. The open chef’s kitchen is handsomely outfitted with granite countertops and custom cabinetry. The sunny and spacious master suite features a walk-in closet and en-suite bath clad in marble mosaic floors, subway tiles and a glass-enclosed European shower.
To top it off, a lofted guest room/home office off the foyer is spacious enough for a queen-sized bed and features vaulted ceilings up to 9’ high. A full second bathroom with soaking tub off the foyer and central A/C complete the home. 31 Gramercy Park South is a beautifully maintained 25’-wide 1850s brownstone on coveted Gramercy Park, ideally situated just steps from the bustling culture, finest restaurants and ease of transportation options at Union Square.
