Dreamy Duplex in UES Mansion Where Jimmy Choo Founder Once Lived Lists for $23.9M
A piece of New York history emanating old-world grandeur, 3 East 95th Street holds sweeping spaces accented with ornate architectural details as well as modern finishes. It’s a truly imposing Manhattan mansion broken into four units today. A fashionable place to be, the prestigious Upper East Side building’s former residents include Jimmy Choo founder Tamara Mellon. Someone can follow in those heel-steps and move to the address now as its 10,350-square-foot duplex just hit the market for $23.9 million.
The Mrs. Amory S. Carhart Mansion, as it is known, was built between 1913 and 1921 and holds all kinds of unique spaces. While its fashion mogul past resident is a household name herself, the 20th-century architect of the building, Horace Trumbaeur, is renowned for his work on the Duke Mansion and Harvard’s Widener Library. Like stepping into Paris, it displays the style of French Classicism. Think Louis XVI.
Inside, the south-facing duplex is filled with grand ceilings, intricate moldings, and classic fireplaces. It’s accessed through its private elevator, or up the magnificent spiral staircase. A perfect mix of airy spaces and richer marble rooms or areas like the wood-paneled living room, the home is certainly ideal for all kinds of occasions. And, its design is full of twists and turns. In the kitchen, new appliances, beautiful Calacatta Vagli marble, and custom stainless-steel cabinets add an unexpected futuristic feel to the home.
Across two floors, five bedrooms and five and a half bathrooms offer ample space guests or maybe someone who needs the space to store all of their clothes. After all, each space surely models bold looks.
