FIRST LEED GOLD TOWNHOUSE IN MANHATTAN
What was once a shabby, multi-unit townhouse has been developed for sale as a 4300 SF Upper East Side single family home. The property was rebuilt to maximize the full potential of the site while adding three outdoor spaces and the timeless elegance of a DFA townhouse. The home is the first in Manhattan to receive a LEED For Homes Gold rating by the US Green Building Council, as well as an Energy Star rating. The home has radiant heat floors throughout and a water retention system to capture and re-use rain water. A few of the upgrades are a new limestone and brick façade, an elevator, working gas fireplaces and FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) wood flooring.
No expense was spared when it came to finishes with Waterworks bathrooms, a high-end custom kitchen and appliances, security system, and a wine storage room. A sunny 300 SF penthouse was erected that opens up to a large outdoor space featuring an exterior firepit. The home is ready for an eco-conscious family who also appreciates high quality living.
