Property Description

Graciously proportioned and strikingly designed by Steven Harris Architects, Residence 8 West is a 4,129 Sq. Ft. (384 Sq. M.) half-floor residence with north, south, and east exposures, and the architect's signature attention to detail infused throughout. Featuring a step-down living room with 12'6" ceilings and Juliet balcony, this home offers five bedrooms, a formal dining room, five ensuite bathrooms, a powder room, and a laundry room. Elegant architectural details and materials throughout include expansive casement-style windows in a white bronze finish, 4" wide plank rift and quarter sawn American white oak flooring set in a chevron pattern in all living areas, recessed panel stile and rail doors with burnished nickel Nanz hardware, and custom plaster cornices in all primary rooms, hallways, vestibules, primary bathrooms, and powder rooms.

Through a private and keyed entry vestibule finished with St. Clair marble flooring and wire brushed rift cut European white oak wall paneling with integrated closets, residents are greeted by a steel and tempered art glass entry door leading into a gracious entry gallery. The entry gallery leads to the south-facing 31'1" x 17'0" step-down living room with 12' 6" ceilings and a 20 Sq. Ft. (2 Sq. M.) Juliet Balcony offering views along East 79th Street and Park Avenue. Adjacent to the living room is the light-filled formal dining room with an expansive casement-style bay window.

The eat-in kitchen also offers an oversized casement-style bay window and is outfitted in hand-painted custom Italian cabinetry with polished nickel trim, honed Imperial Danby marble slab countertops and backsplashes, and a custom stainless steel island with a Nordic Gray marble slab countertop. Professional-grade appliances include a Wolf 6-burner range, speed oven, and fully-vented range hood; Sub-Zero refrigerators and full-height wine refrigerator; two Miele dishwashers; and two Julien under-mount stainless steel sinks with Dornbracht faucets. An adjacent pantry, with custom millwork cabinetry, provides additional storage. The laundry room, conveniently located next to the service entrance, is outfitted with custom lacquer-finished millwork cabinetry, stainless steel sink with honed white Caesarstone countertop, and high capacity LG washer and dryer which vents to the exterior.

The primary bedroom suite, located in its own wing, features a windowed dressing room, two oversized walk-in closets, one additional closet, and a sweeping 20' long casement-style window wall overlooking landmarked townhouses and verdant landscaped gardens. The primary bath is outfitted with honed Olympic Danby stone slab full-height walls and floors; a custom acid etched mirror vanity with an Olympic Danby stone slab countertop, nickel trim, and Lucite drawer pulls; recessed chrome-trimmed medicine cabinets featuring integrated lighting; and a Kaldewei Puro undermount tub with an Olympic Danby stone slab tub deck and apron. Additional features include a separate nickel framed stall shower in fluted glass and a Duravit water closet.

Secondary bedrooms are generously proportioned and feature ensuite bathrooms clad in Honed Nestos Grey stone full-height tile walls and floors, a custom floating millwork vanity with a Nestos Grey slab countertop, and either a stall shower enclosed with frameless ribbed glass or a Kaldewei Puro undermount tub with a Nestos Grey slab tub deck and apron. Dornbracht chrome fixtures and a Duravit water closet complete these refined spaces.

The powder room, located adjacent to the entry gallery, provides a striking focal point with a floating vanity with a honed Maya quartzite slab countertop, custom integral sink, and matching door surrounds and base details along with Dornbracht fittings in a platinum finish and a Duravit water closet.

Additional thoughtful residence features include pre-wiring for home automation, pre-wired shade pockets in every room, VRF individually zoned heating and cooling, and a service entrance.

109 East 79 offers an exceptional amenity suite, designed by Steven Harris Architects, and featuring sumptuous finishes throughout. A double-height lobby, clad in travertine and Belgian Blue marble, offering a 24-hour concierge, full-time doorman, and 24-hour porter leads to a grand lobby lounge and separate leather-paneled library all overlooking a landscaped garden with a sculptural water feature by the artist Mig Perkins. Upstairs, athletic and wellness areas include a light-filled fitness center by The Wright Fit overlooking the garden below; an international squash court / sports court with a retractable basketball net and backboard; a movement studio with Pilates and Gyrotonic equipment; and a spa with treatment room, infrared sauna, seam room, and hair salon. Leisure spaces include a 15-seat screening room, a game room, and a golf-simulator. Additional conveniences include bicycle storage, private storage for purchase, a dog grooming station, a dedicated service entrance, and a live-in resident manager.

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.
