27 Vandam Street, New York, NY 10013 in the Charlton-King-Vandam Historic District Built in 1823 on the former grounds of the mansion 'Richmond Hill,' where George Washington oversaw the American Revolution and Vice President John Adams once lived, 27 Vandam Street is rich with American history. This 20' wide residence was previously owned by the iconic choreographer, Paul Taylor, who used the top floor as his personal dance studio and created many of his lauded ballets, including his masterful Esplanade (1975) and Promethean Fire (2002). Located in the National Register of Historic Places section of the South Village and landmarked by the New York City Landmarks Commission, 27 Vandam Street is part of a rare row of exceptional Federal-styled townhomes. Together with the vision of Erica Goetz, formerly of Matthew Baird Architects, the current owners meticulously gut renovated the entire home, retaining much of the original masonry and details, such as the high parlor ceilings, the original staircase railing and factually replicated crown moulding while implementing every modern necessity and luxury. Ideally situated on the cusp of the West Village and Soho, this exceptional turnkey single-family townhome offers 5,100 square feet of interior living space, generously proportioned over 4 stories plus skylit lower level. There are 5 bedrooms, 4 full bathrooms, 2 powder rooms and nearly 1,200 square feet of private outdoor space, including a manicured, 60 foot deep Bluestone garden. Enter into the parlor level where you are greeted by a gracious sitting room with high ceilings and wood burning fireplace with its original mantel. Beyond the parlor, and easily separated by original pocket doors, a generous dining room with a wet bar and fireplace is conveniently located adjacent to a sleek, state-of- the-art kitchen with Calacatta Regina marble counters and top-of-the-line appliances throughout. A floor to ceiling glass wall overlooks the tranquil, manicured garden, allowing for copious amounts of natural light. A glass door allows convenient access to the garden from the kitchen. Through original wrought iron gates, the garden level floor has a service entrance/mud room leading into an open floor-through living space. A wet bar and refrigerator are situated next to a wood burning fireplace in a casual living room area. Sharing the open floor plan, the library and study are located next to a wall of glass accordion doors, opening out to the outdoor kitchen and lush landscaped garden. This level also hosts a large, private bedroom with en-suite bathroom, a powder room and a large laundry room with storage closet. The Primary Suite encompasses the entire third floor of the home. The bedroom has a fireplace and accesses an impressive, private terrace with an Ofuro Japanese Cedar Tub/Jacuzzi and lounge area. A dressing room featuring a walk-in-closet and an abundance of drawers leads to the spa-like primary bath. Finished in Calacatta Venato marble, the bath hosts double sinks, a walk-in steam shower and freestanding Waterworks soaking tub. A Victorian-era fireplace is a luxurious bonus. This floor also houses an additional room currently configured as a sitting area and home office but can easily become a bedroom. A lovely half bathroom finishes the Primary Suite. The sun-filled fourth floor includes two generously sized bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms. Well placed skylights add to the brightness, not only to the fourth floor but to the entire home. In addition, the owners excavated a 600 square-foot triple skylight lit, fully finished lower level beneath the garden level. Currently used as a recreation room and home gym, 11-foot-high ceilings and gallery-style walls afford this space to have many different uses. This floor also has a large storage area and mechanicals room. Highlights of this special home includes reclaimed Wormy Chestnut Floors, radiant hydronic in-floor heating, 6 restored wood burning fireplaces (4 with restored original mantels), Tensui Water Filtration System, Dornbracht Fixtures and ER Butler & Co Hardware, Control 4 Home Automation System, whole house Lutron Lighting system.
