Exquisite in every detail, this painstakingly renovated 5-bedroom, 8-bathroom townhouse is second to none in its harmonious synthesis of classical architecture and modern luxury. Clad in meticulously restored limestone, and encompassing nearly 7,400 square feet, conveniently serviced by a high-speed elevator, this majestic manse boasts exceptional proportions and high ceilings throughout.
The elegant living and dining rooms, each with its own fireplace, invite gracious entertaining on a grand scale. Below, a tranquil, planted garden, trimmed in slabs of bluestone and antique brick, enjoys abundant southern light throughout the day. The bespoke kitchen by Smallbone of Devizes is fitted with a La Cornue range, commercial grade refrigeration by Sub-Zero, and polished nickel brightwork. The home’s 6-full and 2-half bathrooms are luxuriously appointed in marble, with custom millwork and fittings by Lefroy Brooks.
The full-floor master suite is bookended by delightful views to the north and south, and features a large dressing room, an enormous bathroom trimmed in slabs of bookmatched white Bianco Dolomiti marble, as well as a powder room.
An English basement features a private entrance, storage, one of the home’s two laundry rooms, a third kitchen, and commodious staff accommodations.
Nestled between Madison Avenue and Park Avenue on one of the Upper East Side’s most desirable blocks, nothing about this distinguished residence is less than extraordinary.
