Property Description

Located on East 71st street between Lexington and Third Avenue on the Upper East Side, this single family 1895 townhouse has been gut renovated by Paul Dierkes, to create a perfect Home that exudes Harmony, Luxury, Privacy and Exclusivity. It has 11 rooms on 5 levels, and includes gorgeous wood floors restored to their original beauty, very high ceilings, wainscotting panels, a divine staircase, 6 fireplaces, huge windows with shutters, and spectacular skylights. Every beautiful room is positioned exactly where you'd want for perfect flow, and the renovation is superb, offering a serene palette. We crave quiet, light and space in New York City, and this sophisticated home has it all. The house has a soothing entry foyer leading to a sun filled dining room overlooking the zen garden. The 2nd floor greats you with 11.4" ceiling heights, a library and a sunny den that could be a perfect zoom room. The primary bedroom suite occupies the entire 3rd floor, it is an oasis of calm and light and space , also has a fireplace, a luxurious fitted closet, a dressing/sitting room, and a windowed marble bathroom. The 4th floor is comprised of two additional bedrooms, one that could easily be a wonderful Peloton room and a windowed bathroom . A glass staircase leads you to the media room on the 5th floor, opening onto a European terrace, with the most delightful views of the neighborhood. The chef's kitchen is located on the garden level, with its separate entrance, and also has the laundry room, a staff room and its full bathroom. The home has a security system, central heat and air conditioning. I invite you to look at the photos and floor plan of this exquisite property. It would be my pleasure to offer you a private tour.

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.
