Aspirational location, inspirational design - this enchanting nineteenth century home lives in one of New Yorks coveted mews communities. The house has been completely rebuilt by two of New Yorks leading architects and designers, Alan Tanksley and Zhenya Merkolova. The street faade remains traditional, while the garden faade presents a taught modern aluminum and glass skin, revealed as a modern surprise only from within the lush private courtyard dripping with wisteria vines and lovingly landscaped with flowering white dogwood, purple rhododendron and astilbe. This home offers a luxuriance of light and an unusual sense of vertical flow promoted by three exposures, large floor to ceiling sliding doors and the spiraling movement of the half-oval, open riser steel stair terminating in a precious sunlit room at the roof level. The roof terrace has been developed as a private Garden of Eden for romantic dining and sophisticated living.
