Property Description

Extreme light_ exceptional ceiling height… phenomenal rooftop views! With approximately 12,380 interior square feet, 2,500 exterior square feet, and 13 foot majestic ceilings, this unique limestone mansion is offered for sale for $29.95 million (or for a Digital Currency equivalent to 1.5 times USD offered price). Along with USD, the Seller will accept payment in Bitcoin, Ethereum, or Ripple. Nothing speaks more truth of a New York City mansion than a proper entrance which emotes a sense of heft and a welcoming arrival; soaring ceilings creating voluminous rooms, and as is with everything in real estate – location, location, location. Fabulously situated on a premier block of the Upper East Side's Gold Coast between Fifth and Madison Avenues, this palatial 22-foot wide townhome is the tallest townhome on the block, towering above all the others around it. Built circa 1904 by architects Schwartz and Gross (renown for building The Mark and The Surrey hotels), A grand, solid-bronze gated entrance leads into an elegant entry vestibule which opens into a stately marbled reception gallery with an impressive wood-burning fireplace and original mosaic tiled floors that have an added European patina. A white marble staircase graciously curves its way to the upper floors. Beyond the reception gallery, through a private door, leads to what was formerly three professional offices. For 24 years, this majestic limestone mansion served as a family compound for its European owner, affording seven private living areas including the Fifth and Sixth Floors combined as a separate penthouse. This allowed for extended family and close friends to live together under the same roof and yet, living separately with a certain amount of privacy. The home's grand scale and impressive potential to be reconfigured into a full, single family mansion is apparent on each floor's 10 to 13 foot ceilings and extra-wide landing areas. There are twelve working wood-burning fireplaces including two outdoor fireplaces located on the Sixth Floor and Roof Terraces. An outdoor lift from the Sixth Floor Terrace ascends to the expansive Roof Terrace, providing a towering, 360 degree view of Manhattan's skyline. The expansive Lower Level is built-out the full length and width of the building lot and boasts unusually high ceilings, a laundry facility, staff room quarters, storage, mechanical storage and a vast vault under the sidewalk that partially extends underneath East 76th Street, supplemented by an outdoor lift to street-level. A rare and extraordinary opportunity to own an impressive lime-stone facade, beaux-art townhouse in a prime Gold Coast location with the structural bones to create an exquisite single family mansion of distinguished taste.

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.
