With spacious islands that maximize convenience and functionality, the kitchens at Prince combine design elegance with a comprehensive portfolio of gourmet-grade top-of-the-line equipment. Finished with five-inch-wide boards of solid white oak, natural stone countertops, and walnut-and-aluminum custom cabinetry by Bulthaup, the kitchens are at once materially sumptuous and quietly contemporary. A comprehensive selection of Gaggenau equipment has been specified, including a fully integrated refrigerator and dishwasher, wall and steam ovens, a warming drawer, a five-burner cooktop and an under-counter wine refrigerator.
The Prince master baths are exquisitely surfaced, with Lithoverde marble floors, honed Delmar White marble walls, floating walnut vanities with Thassos marble countertops, and steam showers fitted with custom-cut teak benches and mats. Matte nickel Waterworks fixtures appear at the sink, shower, and biomorphic freestanding tub from the .25 Collection by Waterworks. Guest baths and powder rooms enjoy equally judicious consideration, with travertine, limestone and marble surfaces, white oak and ebonized vanities, and fittings and fixtures by Waterworks and Duravit.
38 PRINCE TOWNHOUSE:
Rare opportunity to own a landmarked downtown townhouse that has been sensitively transformed by Marvel Architects. Originally the west wing of Old Saint Patrick's School and Convent, the 1826 edifice combines the strong lines of a late Federal house with the stylistic Greek Revival flair of a classic triangular pediment with oculus window. Built 25' x 65', the five story residence with elevator has 8,069 interior square feet with an additional 1,614 square feet in the cellar. The house has three sunny exposures with oversized windows complementing the views of both the cloistered Cathedral and your own private garden. The design is both gracious and practical with well-proportioned layouts, seven bedrooms, seven full and three half baths and three working fireplaces. The grand parlor floor with its formal living and dining rooms boasts a stunning curved staircase, high ceilings and a wet bar. The expansive open kitchen with its extensive marble countertops, Smallbone cabinetry and La Cornue range will be a joy to cook in and leads through a casual dining room to a large south-facing, bi-level garden with an outdoor kitchen. The master floor is exquisite with a private study, a glorious spa-like bath with Waterworks fixtures, powder room, and a huge dressing room. Additionally there is a family room and a playroom on the top two floors. True to its roots, the house has five-inch quarter sawn oak floors and borders, paneled doors, replicated historical moldings and all the mod-cons one wants in a home today. Access to condominium services next door, including the doorman and snow shoveling, will be free for two years. Expected occupancy is approximately May 2016. Truly one of the most unique properties in our celebrated city.
