171 East 73rd Street is an exceptional home designed to allow for the perfect lifestyle blend of entertaining as well as welcoming and bright casual living. Built 20' wide this townhouse was originally constructed in 1860 and completely rebuilt in 2016 with 5 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms and 2 powder rooms.
The landmarked facade of the house remains boasting a rare and beautiful cast iron veranda off the floor-to-ceiling windows of the parlor floor which is the perfect complement to the neighboring 19th century carriage houses which have also been designated as landmarks ensuring the integrity and beauty of this block will endure.
This comprehensive reconstruction saw the addition of a heavy duty hydraulic elevator accessing all floors, excavated lower level with natural light, multiple outdoor spaces, heated sidewalks and smart home technology. Renowned New York architectural firm Baxt Ingui created a wonderful home and London/NY/LA designer Birgit Klein designed the interiors to be inviting and chic, anchoring the house with a five story cascading light fixture by OCHRE.
Garden Level: The perfect under stoop entrance is currently a large entrance/mud room but has been thoughtfully designed with a full bathroom to double as a potential staff/in-law apartment. This floor also offers a massive eat-in kitchen, dining area and second living room all with radiant heat floors and a wood burning fireplace leading onto the private garden.
Parlor Floor: High ceilings and wonderful light combine to create an inviting living and dining floor with a wet bar, gas fireplace and powder room.
Third Floor: Currently the entire floor is dedicated to the Master bedroom suite offering wonderful closet space, a gorgeous master bath and an office which can easily be an additional bedroom with en-suite bath.
Fourth Floor: Two wonderfully sized bedrooms with ensuite baths and walk in closets as well as a very large double laundry room.
Fifth Floor: Media room with wet bar, gas fireplace and a full bathroom flanked by two separate outdoor terraces and a large skylight that floods the center core of the house with natural light reaching all floors. The North facing terrace has been pre-designed to support the installation of an outdoor Jacuzzi.
Lower Level: Fully excavated to provide for high ceilings and functionality including radiant heated floors. With room to spare this level offers a screening room, gym, climate controlled 900 bottle wine cellar and powder room. Uniquely, this space has outdoor stairs to reach the back garden which allows for exceptional light and air.
Rarely does one find a house that is as thoughtful in its design and aesthetically pleasing in the heart of Manhattan’s Upper East Side!
