About 79 East Elm Street

Upon entering the ornate 10' tall double doors into this regal brownstone on historic Elm Street, you are immediately graced with a sense of modern grandeur. Originally built in 1896 and completely gut-rehabbed, this 6,500 SF contemporary open floor-plan spared no expense. Highlights include 11 foot high ceilings, rare Versailles-patterned birch wood floors, and double crown moldings including extra high baseboards. These features offer a nod to the home's historic roots and juxtaposed with modern decor and finishes. The gourmet chef's kitchen boasts walls of Boffi white lacquered cabinetry, an impressive 11 ft. long island/breakfast bar with 2" thick quartz cantilevered countertops and integrated top-of-the-line appliances - Miele oven, microwave/convection, Miele espresso machine, and SubZero refrigerator with separate freezer. Full height windows face a lush, private 20' x 20' backyard garden, easily accessed from kitchen or lower level. The garden and rooftop deck- with views of the Lake- are idyllic city escapes in the comfort of your home! The 2nd floor is a gracious primary suite including a library/office with large bay windows and ornate fireplace, enormous primary bedroom with ensuite double door 8' x 14' boudoir/walk-in closet and luxe primary bath. Enjoy a cozy lower level with high ceilings, radiant heated floors, a full second kitchen including a Miele microwave and convection oven, and SubZero refrigerator, ice maker, and wine refrigerator.
