Property Description

8B is a gracious three-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bath 2,190 SF residence with a flexible floor plan. With a private elevator vestibule, the apartment provides the utmost privacy on the Upper East Side while the light filled great room is the ideal place for entertaining. Chevron and straight plank wood flooring run the length of the apartment as well as tall ceilings and detailed crown molding provide the perfect canvas for applying your own style.

The heart of the home is a windowed eat-in kitchen featuring cabinetry designed by Robert Couturier in collaboration with master carpenter, Christopher Peacock. The much loved and coveted French-made Lacanche gas range and vented hood highlight Couturier’s Parisian flair. Additional appliances include a Miele 30” wall oven, speed oven and warming drawer. Sub-Zero refrigeration and wine storage blend in seamlessly with the custom cabinetry. Custom knobs and pulls designed by Robert Couturier complement the Statuarietto stone counter, backsplash and island.

The Master bedroom suite has two large closets and a five-fixture bathroom clad in honed Bianco Crisium and Bardiglio Nuvoletto stone. The bath features a soaking tub, heated floors, steam shower, Lefroy Brooks fixtures and a separate TOTO water closet.

All secondary bedrooms have an en suite bath and generous closet space. A bedroom can be easily converted into a dressing room, library, office, or an extension of the great room for additional entertaining. In addition, there is a charming powder room tucked discreetly off the entrance gallery and a laundry room with a sink and vented dryer.

150 East 78th is a thoughtfully designed boutique building by Robert A.M. Stern Architects. Their timeless architectural approach is married perfectly to the interiors' prewar sensibility and Parisian flair of AD100 Hall of Fame designer Robert Couturier. The stately facade features distinctive handset Indiana limestone, patterned brick, and ornamental metalwork. Inspired by the neighborhood, Robert A.M. Stern Architects designed an exterior steeped in New York City Classicism. The 16-story building’s overall aesthetic is refined and distinguished, highlighted by arched windows, limestone pilasters, and rich green metal and glass conservatories. The canopied entrance, located on 78th Street, fits in beautifully with the neighboring townhomes and treelined street.

Multiple levels of carefully curated amenities include: a regulation squash court; a regulation height basketball hoop; a golf simulator; a top tier fitness center with Technogym equipment; a private training/yoga room; a children’s art and activity room; and the entertaining Parlor which has full height arched windows, a billiard table and catering kitchen. Additionally, a rooftop terrace with amazing views, limestone archways and an outdoor kitchen/grill provide space for dining and sitting by the gas fire pit.

Upper East Side | Manhattan

Quick Profile

Exuding a cosmopolitan, refined air that is reminiscent of Paris or other European cities, the Upper East Side (the UES, to local cognoscenti) has a reputation as being a bastion of wealth and privilege. Even though it was built by American “royalty” families like the Vanderbilts, Roosevelts, Kennedys, Carnegies and Rockefellers, whose elaborate mansions once anchored Fifth Avenue, there are affordable housing options throughout the neighborhood. The further east you move, away from Central Park and the more commercial avenues, the more likely you are to find quiet, tree-lined streets with historic townhouses and brownstones. Keep your eye out for reasonably priced apartments in pre-war low-rise and even a few high-rise buildings.

With abundant, beautifully landscaped green spaces, including the oasis of Central Park acting like a backyard, the area is quiet and lushly green. You can relax and unwind in John Jay Park, Carl Schurz Park or take a stroll along the East River Promenade. The whole neighborhood seems isolated from the workaday chaos of the city at large. Add to that the history of the neighborhood and the abundance of cultural institutions, and you have a uniquely welcoming neighborhood.

Known for its abundance of high-end retail shopping, especially on Madison Avenue, the Upper East Side is host to the Barneys New York flagship department store. Here you can find upscale goods, fashion and home decor items. You will also find the edgy runway-inspired Alexander McQueen collections. If you are dying to treat your feet to red-soled opulence, be sure to visit the Christian Louboutin boutique. These are only a small sampling of this high-end shopper’s paradise that features everything from designer boutiques that offer the ultimate in haute couture to resale shops where you can find last season’s best on sale at hefty discounts .

There are many unique dining experiences, from fine dining to the casual bite-on-the-go, awaiting you in the UES. Sushi is going through a renaissance in the city, and the best omakase-style sushi can be found at Sasabune on E 73rd Street. Omakase sushi means that you leave the choice of ingredients, preparation method and presentation to the chef. Elegant French cuisine can be experienced at JoJo, E 64th Street, housed in gorgeous townhouse. Just for fun, visit the Lexington Candy Shop on Lexington Avenue, to get a taste of an old-fashioned soda fountain.
