Property Description

The Maisonette at 25 Sutton Place is a grand and elegant 4-bedroom duplex in the heart of one of Manhattan's most coveted residential neighborhoods. This home offers its own private entrance and enjoys the benefits of one of the finest full-service buildings on a quiet, gorgeous, cul-de-sac. At approximately 5,000 square feet, there is a generous personal gym as well as a large corner office with enough space to allow flexibility to satisfy the many needs of today's living.

Enter through a regal gallery and move West toward an expansive corner living room stretching nearly 32' deep with oversized windows and wood burning fireplace. In the East wing, there is a double-sized handsome wood-paneled library and formal dining room with 10ft ceilings and major architectural details. The entertaining space is serviced by an ideally-located powder room off of the gallery. Just beyond, sunlight pours through a pair of large windows in the home's expansive eat-in kitchen. The appliances are top-of-the-line and there is an island for informal dining. Rounding out this floor is a laundry room and additional powder room for convenience. One may access the second floor of this home via staircase or the building elevator. All bedrooms face South onto the street. The Primary suite is tucked away in its own wing with sitting area, dressing room, two full en-suite bathrooms and an adjoining state-of-the-art home gym. The additional two bedrooms also have en-suite baths and fabulous closet space. The fourth bedroom is located just a floor above and features its own en-suite bathroom.

25 Sutton Place is a gorgeous Rosario Candela pre-war building with only 13 apartments on 15 floors. Residents enjoy full white glove service and amenities including a full-time doorman, elevator operator, live-in resident manager and storage bins. Pets are permitted, subject to board approval. 3% flip tax to be paid by the Purchaser.

Sutton Place | Manhattan

Quick Profile

Sutton Place is usually described with favorable words like charming, cozy, great neighborhood, hidden gem, sanctuary, or even small village inside a big city. Those descriptions aren’t from real estate folks either, they’re from the people that live and work there, so it must be true.

The quiet and upscale neighborhood is more like an enclave. It’s bounded by East 53rd Street to the south, East 59th Street to the North, First Avenue to the west, and the East River to the east. Most residents will tell you that everything you’ll ever need is located in the neighborhood. When it’s time to venture out into the cityscape, Sutton Place is within easy reach to Midtown and cultural attractions like the Museum of Modern Art, Rockefeller Center, Central Park and other iconic sites.   

Manhattan has always had notable celebrity residents. But for unknown reasons, Sutton Place has had more than its share of superstars over the years. Some of the more iconic celebs include: Marilyn Monroe and Arthur Miller, Freddie Mercury, Sigourney Weaver, Joan Crawford, Michael Jackson and sister Latoya (Just for one summer).

Sutton Place is named after Effingham B. Sutton, a shipping merchant and entrepreneur. After hitting it big in the California gold rush, Sutton built brownstones along East 57th and East 58th streets with aspirations of making the section more residential. Poverty and crime dashed his dreams. The street gangs that hung out along the dead-ends and cul-de-sacs added to the neighborhood’s decay. Sutton was about to give up on his development endeavors but the Vanderbilt’s and the Morgan’s showed up in the 1920s and transformed the neighborhood. It soon became a wealthy enclave.
