Occupying three floors in a stately limestone and brick colonial-inspired townhouse, this delightful residence benefits from an ideal location, very attractive original detail, and a meticulous renovation. The layout and design complement the inherent elegance of the home while modernizing the apartment to today’s standard. Since its completion in 1881, 61 East 82nd Street has benefited from significant alterations to the current Palladium Revival facade, in Flemish bond brick and limestone detail dating from 1914. An inventive floorplan arranged over three levels maximizes a sense of spaciousness. Upon entry, a very attractive vestibule opens to the impressive Gallery, with limestone floors and a gas fireplace that boasts the original black marble mantle. A Powder Room and four coat closets in each corner of the Gallery are conveniently accessible. Beyond, a sweeping staircase wrapped in dark brown leather gracefully leads to the bright and very impressive Living Room with soaring high ceilings and a wood burning fireplace. The room is beautifully proportioned, and natural southern light streams through windows overlooking the very charming planting terrace. Nearby, the formal Dining Room’s handsome original paneling is complemented by a wood-burning fireplace and a large original stained-glass window. An efficient and beautifully designed Kitchen with state-of-the art appliances is very conveniently located beside the Dining Room.
