Stunning 5-story townhouse exuding Gilded Age elegance has been updated and restored to its current move-in condition. Superbly designed with distinct spaces for guests, family and staff, this grand residence is entered through a wrought-iron door and striking brass gate. Guests are welcomed into a velvet upholstered reception gallery framed by a 3-story curved staircase. Beyond is a dramatic Tudor-style living room with a wall of leaded stained glass French doors which open to a stately landscaped garden.
On the same level is a butler's pantry connected via dumbwaiter to the eat-in kitchen above, both of which are outfitted with professional grade appliances. Able to be closed off from the rest of the floor, it has a separate service entrance and staircase to the basement laundry room and complete staff quarters.
The 2nd floor provides another full level of dining and entertaining spaces. Both 3rd and 4th floors are full-floor bedroom suites complete with wet bars. The oversized master baths contain steam/shower rooms, soaking tubs, and double sink. The 5th floor has 2 large bedrooms, each with private bath.
In addition to a dog run and shower, the planted roof deck has a large outdoor lounge area that will be much appreciated for morning yoga, afternoon high tea, and evening cocktails.
Although replete with the ornate details of a bygone era, this is a fully modernized home with 6-stop elevator, 10-zone HVAC, dual boilers, 76 gallon hot water tank, and sound system. Turnkey ready, the seller is also offering a 5-year maintenance contract to ensure a completely effortless transition.
Featured on NBC’s Open House NYC and CBS’ Living Large, this former residence of Eleanor Roosevelt is truly a one-of-kind option for the buyer seeking old-world luxury.
