Look Inside a Stunning Upper East Side Townhouse Seeking $32M After a Three-Year Renovation
The Upper East Side has long been a coveted area of New York City, often highlighted in pop culture hits like Gossip Girl or the 2017 film The Goldfinch. Coming to the market now is a luxurious and captivating townhouse. It’s only two blocks away from Central Park and boasts tantalizingly timeless interiors. Built in 1869 but recently remodeled, the residence combines understated elegance with beautiful architecture. With its pristine design and prestigious location, is it any wonder it’s asking $32 million?
Undergoing a renovation by renowned architect Steven Harris over the course of three years, the six-story townhome has been thoroughly updated while staying true to its roots. Erected just in time for the more-is-more Gilded Age, the 10,000-square-foot mansion’s scale and ornate details nod to the opulent era.
The entry floor is polished and graceful, highlighted by intricate wallpapers and original casement windows. The den on this level also opens out to one of the six outdoor spaces, while capturing views from all directions. Moving upstairs to the main entertaining area, the cheery spaces usher in light all around. You’ll find top-of-the-line appliances in the kitchen and stately furnishings in the living and dining room. An outdoor terrace also holds space to sit eight people, perfect for dinner parties al fresco.
Seven bedrooms and nine bathrooms await for overnight guests, with the primary suite occupying the entirety of the third floor. It’s a true NYC sanctuary holding a paneled library, its own balcony, and a 20-foot bathroom. The upper two floors accomodate the remaining bedrooms.
Fresh and tasteful, this townhouse is a sure hit for those with deep pockets in search of an Upper East Side address. Serena Boardman of Sotheby’s International Realty holds the listing.
