The brokerbabble uses descriptors like “perfect jewel,” “exquisite one-of-a-kind” when discussing this sprawling Upper East Side mansion and as much as it hurts to admit it, we agree with the them, dramatic emphasis and all. The home isn’t your average townhouse. To set the mood, there are seven floors that encompass 5,600 square feet of interior space along with another 2,000 square feet of exterior space. As you can imagine, there’s a lot to dissect here so let’s get right to it.
The main entrance leads to the garden level, which is sort of like pre-game for what comes next. This level hosts a den and the enormous eat-in kitchen designed with lots of storage and a decorative fireplace. One level above is where the dazzling living room and formal dining room with 11-foot ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows reside.
The home has undergone a full renovation that merged its classic elements like intricate wall moldings and ceiling medallions with modern desires that include heated floors and a security system. There are so many stunning features within this house but the more impressive ones are the six working fireplaces, the beamed library, and the skylight that can be seen from the fourth floor and up. The outdoor space is amazing simply because there’s just so much of it. The backyard has been landscaped very subtly and is large enough for some serious outdoor entertaining while the roofdeck is complete with a lounge area and views of the neighborhood. A glass-enclosed atrium is also on hand.
To live here means you have to be willing to cough up some serious millions—$14.25 million, to be exact. It’s expensive but understandable as to why.
