Rare offering in the hidden oasis of Beekman Place. 415 East 50th Street is a beautifully designed and meticulously renovated, four-story plus basement home of approximately 3,700 square feet (4,567 sq. ft. including basement), set on a quiet, Beekman Place area block. It is 19.42' wide, and built 45' deep on a 100' lot. Upstairs is the grand living room with an 11'5" ceiling accentuated by the original, dramatic crown moldings and three stunning, south-facing mahogany windows graced by the restored, original shutters. It has a beautifully designed library/family room with gas fireplace and built-in wet bar, and five bedrooms with 9'5" ceilings. The ground floor, with radiant heating throughout, has a beautiful formal dining room enhanced by a wall of bookcases and gas fireplace. It has a large, chef's windowed eat-in kitchen, with marble counters and Wolf and Subzero appliances, a pantry with wine cooler, and a powder room. And lastly, you will come to the garden room with its peaceful Zen feel. This room, with large skylights, literally opens into a lushly planted 39' deep garden containing a magnificent 120-year-old magnolia tree, through a 11-foot long screened opening. During the winter, a glass wall rolls out to take its place. A small garden with trees also graces this home's front entrance. The house has 3.5 baths, all with Waterworks fixtures. When the current owners purchased this home in 2013, it had been untouched since 1941. By mid-2015, they had completed a renovation that included new supporting steel beams, new electrical and mechanical systems, new roof, windows, floors, central air conditioning and most plumbing. In 2021, yet additional renovation work was undertaken. The owners' aim throughout has been to restore the original design and integrity of this 1899 turn-of-the-century home. A few additional details of this finely restored townhouse are heated wiring on the roof to prevent damage from ice and snow, a water sensor installed to cut off water flow should it sense a leak, and abundant closet space and storage. It has "conservation-quality" solid mahogany windows, with brass chains and glass made to replicate the glass of old, installed in the five parlor floor stately windows. Some finishing decor includes Ann Morris sconces, Ann Sachs tiles, William Morris wallpaper, and a formal dining room graced with antique, 1930's silver Chinese tealeaf wallpaper. Julie Harris, the actress, once owned this home.
