Residence 2S is a modern mix of design-forward thinking, sophisticated materials, and old-world charm.

Located in 211 Elizabeth Street, an exclusive downtown Manhattan, 15-unit condominium designed by innovative New York City firm Roman & Williams—who also designed the interiors—Residence 2S is a two-bedroom, two-and-a-half bath home, with an expansive 1,120-square-foot landscaped terrace. The elegant home is full of character and showcases rich, high-end finishes, luxe materials, design-forward details, and quality craftsmanship throughout. 

The dramatic, flamed granite, wood-burning fireplace is the focal point of the living room which is divided into three distinct sitting areas. 

The beautifully proportioned rooms feel open and flow like a contemporary version of a stately pre-war apartment. The living room is anchored by a dramatic, floor-to-ceiling, wood-burning fireplace that was custom-made for the unit from flamed granite. The bedrooms are set on either end of the living space with dramatic 9-foot-high French doors serving to divide the space.   

Rich walnut herringbone parquet floors are complemented by meticulous millwork. 

The baseboards, casings, windows, and doors are trimmed in Roman & Williams’ favorite high gloss black oil paint by Fine Paints of Europe. 

Full-height French doors lead to the second bedroom which is currently in use as a media room. The elegant built-in bookcase is from Amuneal’s Collector's Shelving system and was custom made in Philadelphia.

The bright and airy master suite features wallpaper from Maharam-System.

French doors lead to the bright and airy master suite where two walk-in closets and a large linen closet provide ample storage. The ensuite master bathroom enjoys rare dual exposures and features a glass-walled shower and a standalone deep soaking tub. Clad in rich materials such as Calacatta Gold marble slabs and brass fixtures the bright white space was designed to have, "the look and feel of a grand European hotel". On the other side of the unit, the second bedroom is currently being used as a media room and features custom built-ins and a walk-in closet. Recently renovated, the ensuite bathroom now boasts a Watermark steam shower with a bench and tiling from Heath Ceramics’ Dwell Collection.  

Roman & Williams designed the bathrooms with "the look and feel of a grand European hotel". The double vanity is painted a high-gloss cream and slabs of Calacatta marble is mixed with brass fixtures makes the master bath shine.

The large, open kitchen is full of distinctive and moody Roman & Williams touches. There is an island set in the center of the space and tall cabinetry, all framed in walnut with fronts hand-painted with high-gloss black oil paint. The countertops are crafted from Danish oiled wood and perfectly paired with brass Watermark hardware. High-end appliances from Viking and Sub-Zero complete the space.

The customized kitchen opens to the dining area where floor-to-ceiling French doors lead out to the terrace.  

The wall finish in the foyer leading to the terrace is custom-crafted plasterwork from Surface & Architecture and Workshop.

The ivy-covered terrace has three access points from inside the apartment. 

Another highlight of the unit is the expansive 1,120-square-foot landscaped terrace that features a gas fireplace, irrigation system, and two oversized pergolas veiled in ivy. Covered in elegantly-designed, red-brick, herringbone pavers, the private and elevated space perfect for outdoor dining and entertaining. 

An expansive outdoor terrace—especially one with a wood-burning fireplace is a rare find in a downtown Manhattan full-service building.
