Lovely Upper East Side home embodies classic 19th-century grace with modern touch

New, 6 comments

A renovation couldn’t keep this home from boasting elegance from the past

It seems like the Upper East Side has an endless supply of turn-of-the-century townhouses that have managed to maintain their elegant pre-war aesthetic in every nook and cranny. This home along East 84th Street is no different. Despite undergoing a renovation, this stunning six-bedroom home looks as if time has stood still within its walls. It’s going for $7.995 million which, is by no means affordable but is definitely much less than some other homes within the neighborhood that aren’t as expansive.

The space is certainly a rather dramatic one, exuding classic Upper East Side pageantry throughout each of its five floors. Fireplaces, elaborate moldings, and columns seem to have been careful preserved or restored within the two-family home while modern updates welcomed revamped kitchens and bathrooms, as well as central air conditioning/heating. Natural light is abundant throughout, thanks to the many oversized windows in both common areas and the bedrooms.

There are more than ten (!!) closets throughout the entirety of the house along with a finished basement featuring exposed brick and access to the adorable backyard.
