For New Yorkers who want modern trappings with a taste of yesteryear, this stunning late 19th century home on the Upper East Side has it all: a cellar, garden level, immaculately renovated kitchens and baths, a front yard and several outdoor terraces. Priced at $14,500,000 and listed by broker Cecilia Serrano of Coldwell Banker Warburg, the property dates back to the early 1880s, and was expanded and refaced in limestone just after World War II.
The property’s total footprint of more than 9,700 square feet is spread across six full floors, with six bedrooms, six full bathrooms, and two half-baths – spacious by any standard and downright expansive by New York standards. Owners enter through a gorgeous foyer and entry gallery on the garden level, which also houses the family room and kitchen — itself, outfitted for a gourmet chef.
There’s also staff quarters and a garden. A spiral staircase rises to the second floor, with 12-foot ceilings, a library, and an oval-shaped, paneled dining room. Further up, the third, fourth, and fifth floors have bedrooms, sitting rooms, bathrooms, and leisure space galore. In the cellar, owners will love the massive amount of storage space, too.
The home itself is situated in the heart of the Upper East Side, blocks away from Central Park, and some of the city’s most storied locales — including museums, art galleries, and the hustle and bustle of Midtown. High-end restaurants and shopping destinations abound as well, making this home one of the most gorgeous, centralized properties in the city.
