Property Description

SIGNIFICANT PRICE REDUCTION – Situated on an idyllic tree-lined street in an excellent and desirable Upper East Side location, this turn-key six-story townhouse has been meticulously renovated to a high standard. Built in 1899, the residence presents the rare and coveted combination of charming period architectural detail and modern convenience. With 4,000 square feet of interior space, a beautifully landscaped garden just under 50 feet, and a rooftop oasis, this wonderful and welcoming five Bedroom house offers endless opportunities and is a haven unto itself. From East 78th Street, two entrances provide access to the house, one at the Garden Level and another at the Parlor Level. On the Garden Level, a generously-proportioned Dining and Family room offers ample space for seating and dining, and then flows effortlessly to the newly-renovated chef’s Kitchen, perfectly appointed with state-of-the-art professional appliances and quartzite countertops. With ceilings that soar to over 10 feet, the Kitchen also boasts a wood-burning fireplace and picturesque outlooks to the very pretty garden. Accessed via custom steel French doors, the garden is lushly planted and magical, featuring a thoughtful geometric design for seating and dining that adds aesthetic interest. On the Parlor Level, the elegant reception Parlor benefits from a wood-burning fireplace, window seat and glorious southern sunlight. Beyond, through a series of graceful architectural arches, lies the inviting Living Room with its own wood-burning fireplace and a Juliet balcony with lovely views of the garden. A bar area, coat closet, and a Powder Room are conveniently accessible. Above, the extensive private quarters, spread across three full levels, offer exceptional and generous space. The first of these levels presents two substantial Bedrooms, one of which features a wood-burning fireplace, while the other offers peaceful garden vistas. These bedrooms share a bathroom and abundant closets. Above them, the private and tranquil Primary Suite is comprised of a splendid, sun-drenched south-facing Primary Bedroom with a wood-burning fireplace and expansive Primary Bathroom. The spacious Bathroom includes a luxurious soaking tub, a separate large shower, a double vanity, and ample dressing space with custom closets. Finally, the fifth-floor features two additional large Bedrooms with a shared Bath and plentiful closet space. The uppermost floor offers a beautiful sunny retreat which can serve as an additional Living Room, Office, Media Room or Gym. With ceilings over 10 feet and a wall of French doors leading to the beautifully finished and planted roof terrace, this floor provides a welcoming oasis. The finished Basement Level houses the recently upgraded mechanical systems and also includes a well-designed 800-bottle Wine Cellar and significant additional storage. Throughout, a thoughtful and meticulous renovation is underpinned by original hardwood floors, custom millwork, and soaring ceilings, all of which imbue the residence with assured elegance. With five Bedroom, five wood-burning fireplaces, and two magnificent and exceptional outdoor spaces, this townhouse is a treasure in every way.
