This exceptionally elegant and meticulous 32 wide home with double garage and elevator is ideally situated midblock on one of the most architecturally significant townhouse streets on the Upper East Side. Originally the seamless combination of two houses in 1915 by British-born American architect Frederick Sterner, also the architect for the Greenbrier Hotel in West Virginia, the home was subsequently remodeled by F. Burrall Hoffman Jr., most notably the architect of James Deerings Villa Viscaya in Miami. This remarkable and historic home is built around a sunny central courtyard and features a full width rear Great Room which is distinguished by its detachment from the main house and voluminous vaulted 20 ceilings. Spread over 5 floors encompassing approximately 9,000sf including 4 bedrooms, 3 full baths and 4 half baths, the home has been completely renovated and restored while being respectful to preserve its distinctive character.
A gated entry through a front court leads to a separate entry gallery which greets you on the garden level. This level includes a particularly handsome dining room with a wood burning fireplace and exceptional millwork which opens on to the landscaped central courtyard. An adjacent corridor leads to the marvelously proportioned Great Room which punctuates the home with 20 ceilings, a gas fireplace and a sensational wrought iron arched doorway leading to the central court.
Upstairs, the Parlor level captivates with its enviably detailed Library featuring dark oak wood paneling, wood burning fireplace and magnificent 11.5' original plaster ceilings. ... more on SOTHEBYSHOMES.COM/CORC5706458
