Ideally positioned at the center of one of the most picturesque blocks in Manhattan, 125 East 95th Street represents the rare offering of an architect designed and light filled elevator townhouse in the best possible location.
Published in Architectural Digest, the home was gut renovated to a high standard by its current owners and has been meticulously maintained since. The modernist interior offers copious space and a gracious layout spanning more than 5,000 sf over six floors including a finished cellar.
Entering the home on the parlor floor, one is greeted by soaring ceilings, clean lines and an abundance of natural light. The welcoming living room features charming views of 95th Street's period architecture to the south. An adjacent Music Room seamlessly expands the entertaining space while offering views of lush gardens to the rear through a wall of full height windows.
Down the stairs, past the African mahogany paneled dining room, awaits a large and fully appointed eat in chef's kitchen with floor to ceiling glass doors opening onto the stunning tiered garden. This serene space is an entertainer's dream offering the joys of the country without the drive.
A master suite occupies the entire 3rd floor. Its tranquil south facing bedroom features a wood burning fireplace and a bay window with lovely views. The adjacent master bathroom is luxuriously appointed and opens onto a sitting room and gym.
The 4th floor is comprised of two large family bedrooms with full bathrooms en suite.
A 5th floor penthouse crowns the home, offering a loft like space with vaulted ceilings, a full bathroom, and a large and beautifully landscaped south facing terrace boasting views over townhomes and the neighborhood below.
125 East 95th St. provides its owners with membership in the Goat Hill Association which lovingly maintains the block's plantings and offers the most valuable amenity of all in Manhattan: a sense of community.
