Stunning and sophisticated, this exceptional townhouse at 63 East 82nd Street presents the ultimate in quality, elegance, innovation and style with remarkable scale and detail. The 20-foot wide, 6-story dream home boasts over 9,000 gross interior square feet in addition to a 1,360 gross square foot cellar that houses a temperature-controlled wine room, mechanicals, and organized storage rooms. Originally built at the turn-of-the-century, the grand house is fully renovated and every inch has been masterfully conceived with the finest finishes, innovative systems and luxurious amenities. Currently configured as a six-bedroom with six full bathrooms and three powder rooms, it can easily be converted to a seven or eight-bedroom home, making it perfect for large families or those who host many visitors.
Modern design elements balance seamlessly with old-world charm and details including exceptionally high ceilings, a wide sweeping staircase, pristine, decorative moldings, beautifully finished oak wood floors, large pocket doors, and 9 wood-burning fireplaces. With utmost attention paid to comfort, the house contains a state-of-the-art multi-zone Crestron system that controls lighting, audio and shades throughout, Mitsubishi central air conditioning, and a security system.
There’s even a new elevator servicing all floors. With two levels of expansive formal rooms, a serene 35-foot landscaped garden, multiple butler kitchens and a dumbwaiter, the house can easily accommodate entertaining on a large-scale. Rare to townhouses, superb natural light floods each floor through oversized windows and several skylights at the peak. The garden and parlor floors feature floor-to-ceiling windows. Additional private outdoor areas include a Juliette balcony on the fifth floor and a large terrace with open city views on the top floor.
A culinary masterpiece, the gourmet eat-in chef’s kitchen with an expansive waterfall marble island and breakfast bar is fully outfitted with top-of-the-line professional appliances including a Sub-Zero refrigerator, full-size Liebherr freezer, Viking double wall oven (including convection), two Viking dishwashers, as well as an iconic designed AGA cast iron stove with modern efficiencies: 4 gas burners, a boiling plate, simmering plate, and 4 ovens – baking, roasting, warming, and simmering.
A marble floor, marble counter tops, and custom cabinetry complete the open space which also has an extension with an intimate dining area. But it’s the wood-burning fireplace and French doors opening onto the beautiful landscaped garden with custom irrigation system that make it the heart of the home.
The exquisite master suite is fit for a king with high ceilings, a 12-foot custom walk-in closet/dressing room, wood-burning fireplace, and garden views. You can escape to the spa in the luxurious en-suite marble bathroom with double-sink vanity, deep soaking tub, steam shower, and separate water closet. Located just across from the master bedroom is the formal library with built-in bookshelves and wood-burning fireplace.
Perfectly positioned close to Central Park in the desirable “Gold Coast” area of the Upper East Side, the house is nestled on a peaceful, tree-lined brownstone/mansion block between Madison and Park Avenues. An extraordinary neighborhood filled with unique architecture, renowned cultural institutions like The Metropolitan Museum of Art, fine dining, charming cafes, and high-end boutique shopping on Madison Avenue.
