The brokerbabble for this "stunning renovation" in the Upper East Side’s Treadwell Farm Historic District promises a "West Coast aesthetic with high-tech conveniences." It's a pretty apt description for this sleek four-story townhouse. It may be historic on the outside, but inside, the $9.4 million home is overwhelmingly contemporary, but for occasional exposed brick and some well-placed warm wood.
The open concept first floor has a slick living room, an all-white cook’s kitchen, and a glassy dining area, while the downstairs garden floor offers the equally crisp, all-white media room. (Both levels have floor-to-ceiling windows looking out on an irrigated garden, which appears to be so well groomed as to be basically unrecognizable as part of the natural world.) Elsewhere, there's a pair of large bedrooms, both with en-suite baths; a den with a kitchenette; a solarium; and a master suite with a massive, wifi-controlled (!) steam shower, an architectural soaking tub, and an integrated sound system. There is also a private rooftop terrace.
In fact, pretty much all systems in the home can be operated remotely: in addition to the steam shower, the lighting, the heating, security, video, entertainment, and audio can all be controlled from afar.
