Housed in a brick and limestone tower envisioned by AD100 architect Peter Pennoyer, his first condominium commission after a storied history of crafting the city's finest townhouses and private residences, and custom designed by world-renowned AD100 designer Victoria Hagan, the Maisonette at 151 East 78th Street offers a true respite in the city. Situated on a block fast becoming the Upper East Side's newest luxury destination with substantial single family townhouses and top-tier new developments, this 5-bedroom, 7-bathroom home encompasses over 5,000 square feet across the building's first and second floors, along with a lush private 862 square foot two-tiered garden and a dedicated guest suite. Truly gracious living in a serene, tranquil setting, all within a discreet and sought-after full-service condominium.
Enter either through a dedicated foyer on the building's main level or through direct elevator access at the second floor into the home's gallery, where a landing of Saint Laurent marble is paired with barrel-vaulted ceilings. The floor plan is Candela-esque pre-war perfection; a double-wide living room flanked by the home's library and formal dining room, featuring chevron pattern quarter sawn oak floors custom designed by Peter Pennoyer Architects. Mahogany double hung weight-and-chain floor-to-ceiling windows line the southern exposures, overlooking a row of historic townhouses. Adjacent to (and accessible from) the library is an elegant powder room with shower clad in Saint Laurent marble, allowing for use as an additional bedroom suite if desired.
Double pocket doors lead from the dining room to the eat-in kitchen, with cabinetry crafted by the artisans at Smallbone of Devises and finished in hand-painted white oak with black walnut interiors. ... more on SOTHEBYSHOMES.COM/OLRS1898144
