At over 25' wide with soaring ceilings on each floor, 720 4th Avenue is an expansive Romanesque Revival townhome adorned with stunning original details throughout. Mirrored fireplaces, columns, and pocket doors with etched glass are just some of the unique details you will find in this impressive home. Sustainable and practical upgrades were thoughtfully made while salvaging many of the home's original charm, including restoring original floors with low-Voc sealant and updating the electrical, plumbing, and gas lines. A combination of double-paned windows and original stained glass windows keep the home quiet and naturally well lit. The full panel stained glass windows in the vintage master bath is especially beautiful in the afternoon light, creating the perfect environment for a relaxing soak.
Bonus rooms with original built-ins like the grand foyer with classic wainscoting and built-in closet, living room alcove with mirrored bar, parlor floor landing with cedar-lined closets and drawers (replicated on each floor) and an airy media playroom with an office on the second floor provide additional usable space and storage for treasured collectibles. The master bedroom has an added walk-in utility closet with Equipment Leasing and Finance Association System that doubles as a dressing room. A 4-room basement with full ceiling height, half bath, and access to the street and backyard, allow for an additional 1258.5 square foot of potential entertainment space to be combined with the existing 3775.50 square foot that occupy the three floors above.
A back deck perfectly situated off the kitchen is flanked by a decorative wooden sunburst made from reclaimed wood from the original Coney Island boardwalk and ivy-lined wall, creating a beautiful oasis for dining al fresco. The 2 bedroom penthouse apartment offers additional rent and Manhattan views, which can also be integrated into the rest of the house to create a massive single-family home.
