House of the Week: $5.2 million for a freshly renovated, window-lined row house in Yorkville
The Place: A four-bedroom, four-bathroom newly renovated Yorvkille row house with some serious architectural cred.
The History: Built in 1984, the home was designed by Barton Myers, a prolific architect whose work includes the revamped Royal Conservatory of Music, Wolf House and Ivan Reitman’s production offices in Los Angeles. A 15-month renovation in 2013 by Batay Csorba Architects added a four-storey glass façade in the rear, a new kitchen, new bathrooms and an elevator.
Big Selling Point: The 960-square-foot master suite spans the entire length of the house. It has his and her walk-in closets, a rain-head shower that could easily fit two (or six, if it’s a party), a balcony in the bathroom and a 10-foot-wide row of floor-to-ceiling windows in the bedroom.
Possible Deal Breaker: The home is 17.5 feet wide, which some may consider to be on the narrow side—though it’s normal for Yorkville. Even so, there’s 3,930 square feet of space spread over four floors, and the interior feels even larger because of the glass walls in the back.
By the Numbers:
• $12,020.02 in taxes (2015)
• 3,930 square feet
• 812-bottle wine storage
• 40 feet of glass walls at the back
• 4 bedrooms
• 4 bathrooms
• 2-car garage
