No. 6 Sutton Square: Present

Perfectly located on one of Manhattan?s most prized and iconic enclaves, Sutton Square, this beautiful and sun-filled 33?7? wide Neo-Georgian style residence elegantly stands amongst a handsome row of iconic townhomes where some of New York City?s most prominent residents have called home.

This Sutton Square residence offers the rare opportunity to live in a beautiful and unique enclave reminiscent of a perfect cross between Eaton Square and Cheyne Walk in London, where all of its homes surround a private and beautifully manicured 12,000 square-foot garden lined by the East River with stunning bridge views while enjoying beautiful light and river breezes throughout the day; truly an exceptional and magical urban oasis.

This turn-key residence features over 8,500 square feet of interior space, graciously proportioned throughout a total of five sun-flooded levels with 7 bedrooms, 6.5 bathrooms, and a hydraulic elevator that connects each level from the finished cellar to the private rooftop terrace.

Welcomed by one of the most recognizable doors on the square, this stately hand-carved teak door crafted in Indonesia leads to an elegant Georgian designed formal foyer clad with black and white marble tiled floors, perfectly framed with custom millwork and an elegant entry arch.

Beyond this elegant foyer, there is a grand dining room that comfortably accommodates up to 24 guests with beautiful hand stenciled walls by renowned French painter, Pierre Finkelstein. A graciously outfitted garden room flanks the dining room, both leading to an elegant south-facing paved terrace overlooking a beautiful Magnolia Tree in Sutton Square Garden (private) and the East River. A professional-grade eat-in kitchen and butler?s pantry with a separate service entrance is also located on this level.

A beautiful staircase leads towards a stately second level, featuring a sitting room with a balcony and a library with nearly 11? ceilings throughout and tranquil, sun-filled, and magical views of the river and garden from every angle, with a fireplace featuring an original hand-carved wood mantle.

Both sun-flooded rooms are ideal for entertaining, Dutch artist Heather Jeltes was commissioned to create a ceiling motif of a golden dragon and phoenix; beautifully and seamlessly connecting both spaces. This level also includes a front-facing bedroom, separate office, full bath, and a separate service hall and stairs (connecting to the first level and cellar).

The third level is an exceptional and elegant space, European in design, it is perfect for entertaining with an impressive 32? wide Grand Salon, 10? ceilings with a fireplace, surrounded by an original marble mantel, beautiful custom millwork, framed with oversized exposures and a bay window. Additional spaces on this level include a fully appointed butler?s pantry/bar and a bedroom with an en-suite bath, double vanities, soaking tub, and ample walk-in closet.

Levels four through five are dedicated to sleeping quarters. The fourth level features 10?4? ceilings throughout with three generously sized bedrooms and elegantly appointed baths. Every exposure features beautiful river or bridge views.

The fifth level is solely dedicated to the primary bedroom suite with nearly 10? ceilings throughout. This level has a magnificent sleeping area with direct views of the river, garden, and city, additionally this space has a separate library and office area with built-in bookshelves and desks with a large sitting area. The bedroom is followed by a private spa with a dry sauna and massage room, the en-suite bath features a steam shower, soaking tub, double vanity, dressing area, walk-in closet, butler?s pantry, water closet, and additional storage throughout.

The rooftop terrace has stunning views of the bridge, skyline, and river throughout the day from every angle. Designed for entertaining the terrace has a full outdoor kitchen with a professional grill, wine cooler, and wet bar.

A beautifully designed windowed cellar features a versatile floorplan that can accommodate two staff rooms. The cellar is currently configured with a staff room, an Onyx clad bathroom, multiple storage rooms, and a laundry area.

No.6 Sutton Square went through an extensive renovation that lasted over 5 years at an approximate cost of $9,000,000.

Every element of this exceptional residence has been carefully planned, considered, and executed to the finest level of finish and is ready to welcome its new residents.

Sutton Place | Manhattan

Quick Profile

Sutton Place is usually described with favorable words like charming, cozy, great neighborhood, hidden gem, sanctuary, or even small village inside a big city. Those descriptions aren’t from real estate folks either, they’re from the people that live and work there, so it must be true.

The quiet and upscale neighborhood is more like an enclave. It’s bounded by East 53rd Street to the south, East 59th Street to the North, First Avenue to the west, and the East River to the east. Most residents will tell you that everything you’ll ever need is located in the neighborhood. When it’s time to venture out into the cityscape, Sutton Place is within easy reach to Midtown and cultural attractions like the Museum of Modern Art, Rockefeller Center, Central Park and other iconic sites.   

Manhattan has always had notable celebrity residents. But for unknown reasons, Sutton Place has had more than its share of superstars over the years. Some of the more iconic celebs include: Marilyn Monroe and Arthur Miller, Freddie Mercury, Sigourney Weaver, Joan Crawford, Michael Jackson and sister Latoya (Just for one summer).

Sutton Place is named after Effingham B. Sutton, a shipping merchant and entrepreneur. After hitting it big in the California gold rush, Sutton built brownstones along East 57th and East 58th streets with aspirations of making the section more residential. Poverty and crime dashed his dreams. The street gangs that hung out along the dead-ends and cul-de-sacs added to the neighborhood’s decay. Sutton was about to give up on his development endeavors but the Vanderbilt’s and the Morgan’s showed up in the 1920s and transformed the neighborhood. It soon became a wealthy enclave.
