Property Description

This elegant home has been totally renovated to the highest standard and is in mint condition. Grand scale rooms, excellent ceiling heights on every level, and wonderful light throughout are just a few of the special features that characterize this stunning property, which is designed for quiet, intimate enjoyment or large-scale entertaining. At four stories, with a high-speed elevator that services all floors, the house is 20 feet wide and approximately 5,350 square feet above grade, with a 1,300 square foot basement, and features 5 bedrooms, 4 full and 2 half baths.

A planted, gated forecourt provides privacy from the street. Enter the home through the vestibule and enjoy sight lines all the way to the garden through the wall of windows and doors framed in blackened steel which are present on the first 2 floors, flooding the home with light. The eat-in chef's kitchen has a breakfast area with banquette seating and 3 separate work areas furnished with top-of-the-line appliances including 3 sinks, 3 ovens, 2 dishwashers, professional grade stove and industrial strength hood vented to the outside, warming drawer, steamer, icemaker and wine cooler.

Enjoy your morning coffee, host intimate dinners, or entertain lavishly in the dining room, which accommodates 25 for dinner or 50 for a seated fundraiser. The dining room features a stunning stenciled floor, and lovely built- in cabinets for ample storage. Step out to the beautifully landscaped garden, which feels like an extension of the room and is a true oasis in the city designed by Robin Key Landscape Architects. A powder room completes this level.

A grand, open landing greets you as you arrive on the parlor floor. This central area is like a room unto itself, with light coming in from the huge skylight above, and provides excellent entertaining flow between the living room to the north, and the library to the south. An 8' wet bar with ample storage and serving area is cleverly hidden behind a wall of paneling. The living room features 12'2' ceilings, a gas fireplace and a lovely oval lot line window on the eastern wall, the perfect location from which to relax on a chaise and morning sun. The more intimate library/ TV room is lined with book shelves and features tall south facing windows and a fireplace. There is a powder room on this level as well.

The serene primary bedroom suite on the third floor features a wall of windows overlooking the garden, decorative fireplace, 2 dressing rooms (with additional closets) and 2 side by side full bathrooms which connect the north bedroom with the south sitting room (or 5th bedroom).

The fourth floor features 3 bedrooms, one with bath en-suite and the other 2 which share a bath. A large laundry room and ample storage is located on this floor as well. A staircase leads to the roof deck with lovely views of the neighborhood.

The basement level houses a full gym, mechanicals, storage and a fabulous, temperature controlled wine cellar which holds approximately 1,000 bottles.

The house is equipped with multi-zoned central AC, security system, and motorized blackout shades in the primary bedroom.

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.
