New York, New York City, NY
Perfectly situated at one of Manhattan's most desirable addresses in an esteemed Lenox Hill white-glove pre-war cooperative, this relaxed yet refined residence is distinguished by grand proportions, an extremely gracious and versatile layout, superb areas for living and entertaining, and distinctive original architectural details.
Two homes were combined to create the exceptionally spacious and adaptable floor plan. A soothing palette and 11-foot beamed ceilings contribute to an ambience of airy serenity and generous scale. Classical details—including handsome herringbone-patterned wood floors and crown moldings—augment the home's timeless character, while oversized windows admit lovely natural light. The location in the rear of the building provides consummate privacy and verdant views of neighborhood gardens. A gracious private landing, a thoughtfully appointed foyer, and a refined gallery introduce the residence, leading effortlessly to the public spaces. The formal dining room and the living room—with its regal wood-burning fireplace, plentiful built-in bookshelves, and bar area—allow for sophisticated living and grand entertaining. The charming kitchen features a butcher-block-topped island, ample storage and built-ins, a Sub-Zero refrigerator, and a charming breakfast nook. Filled with light during the day, the peaceful primary suite enjoys an idyllic view of treetop gardens of nearby townhouses while offering abundant closet space and built-ins as well as an elegant bath. A privately situated guest bedroom is accompanied by an en suite bath and has beautiful French doors looking out onto a lovely open terrace. The remaining two bedrooms—one of which can easily serve as an additional office—share a bath. An adjacent room can be transformed into a very spacious laundry area.
Designed by the prominent architectural firm of Schwartz & Gross, the landmark Colonial Revival–style building dates to 1928 and enjoys a prime location on a tree-lined block just steps from the Frick Collection and Central Park on the prestigious Upper East Side. Residents benefit from an exceptionally renovated lobby, a new state-of-the-art gym, and white-glove service provided by an attentive staff and a live-in residential manager. Pied-à-terres are allowed, pets are welcome, and ownership of the home includes two private storage spaces. The neighborhood hosts some of the city's most significant cultural institutions—the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Guggenheim Museum, and the Whitney—while also offering an array of playgrounds, galleries, boutiques, and dining destinations.
