Property Description

Handsome and refined, this impeccably renovated 20-foot wide brownstone with stoop and elevator has been gutted to its shell then rebuilt and meticulously crafted to create a modern classic that's bright and imbued with good energy.

Originally built in 1877 by architect J. H. Valentine for developer Ira E. Doying, it is one of a row of ten originally neo-Grec residences.No. 52, however, is one of only a handful that retains its historical front facade that features enframements with incised carving at openings, cornice slab lintels and stylized bracketed cornice at the roof.

The current owner presents a fresh update to the rear faade with a neoteric combination of beautiful limestone, steel, and glass that allows southern light to permeate the dwelling.Collaborating with renowned architect, Jose L. Ramirez, the owner has invested much time and energy into creating the ultimate amalgamation of all things timeless and timely.

The stoop leads to an elegant marble vestibule. An adjacent sitting parlor with gas fireplace is the first stop in the lofty entertaining floor.It is proceeded by the voluminous great room anchored by a a gas fireplace with an impressive mantle.

A custom marble and wood bar acts both as a sophisticated visual divide and, functionally, a brilliant service area catering to the formal living and dining spaces. The rear rooms enjoy a beautiful view of the garden.

Overall, the home consists of six spacious bedrooms, six sumptuous marble baths plus three powder rooms, a lounge , a gym, a delightful large open gourmet kitchen featuring top of the line appliances and large breakfast area, and a full cellar.

Comfort and efficiency in mind the whole house is wired and ready for the latest technological tools, and also enjoys multi-zone central heating and air conditioning. The elevator services all floors.

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.
