Located in the heart of the Upper East Side, 155 East 79th Street delivers a stunning 14-story boutique condominium replete with classic architectural grandeur to the storied neighborhood. Complementing the neighborhood’s refined architecture with a limestone base and marble brick on the upper floors, the property is outfitted with a distinct façade accented with oversized windows, French-inspired ornamental metal work and Juliet balconies.
With the privacy and space of a townhouse and the full-service offerings of a high-end condominium, the exquisitely designed property injects modern luxury into timeless Upper East Side design. The grand residences by Andrew Sheinman, of Pembrooke & Ives, merge traditional elements with modern aesthetics to create unique spaces featuring wood and plaster crown moldings, imported Chesney’s marble mantels and hearths, and artisanal glass pocket doors. The classic enfilade design allows each townhouse to have a flawless transition between space and an abundance of natural light through the length of the home.
