Elevator Townhouse with European Flair An alluring Avant-garde essence courts a classically whimsical fine-art collection into this sophisticated and partially furnished 4 bedroom, 4.5 bathroom Townhouse on the coveted and beautifully tree-lined block of East 71st, west of 3rd Avenue. Paintings, photographs and sculptures adorn this truly unique and light flooded four story home plus top-floor loft addition with private balconies to the north and south. Floor-to-ceiling windows enhance the grandeur with ceilings soaring up to 11'-6'' in the parlor, 10 feet in the master, and 11 feet on the sky-lit top floor loft with en-suite bathroom. The landscaped 600 square foot garden is a serene retreat and a haven to enjoy off the eat-in country kitchen and dining room. A discrete private passenger elevator takes one to all five floors.
There is an element of distinguished and old world European character balanced with a lightheartedness in this delicate, charming 1910 townhouse with two wood burning fireplaces on the Parlor floor, through the wall AC units and washer and dryer. The elegant wood stairwell flows beautifully within the framework of this personal and creatively furnished space.
The Garden floor holds an entry foyer and breakfast room. As well as an open country kitchen dining room with double glass doors opening up to the beautiful and landscaped garden. The modest single passenger elevator starts off the entrance and goes all the way to the top floor.
The magical Parlor floor with double sitting rooms is a rare and peaceful center of this composed home. Southern light pours in through floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the Garden.
The Master suite, with adjoining sitting room, encompasses the entire third floor with a pass-through master bathroom, and multiple closets. The fourth floor holds two additional bedrooms, both with ensuite bathrooms, as well as a large center walk-in closet.
The top floor addition was recently completed as an 'Artists Loft' and has 11' ceilings, floor to ceiling windows, a private bathroom and two private outdoor spaces to the south and north. It is a powerful compliment to the already fully-realized home.
Lenox Hill, and especially East 71st Street, is home to some of the finest residences on the Upper East Side. Refined elegance and luxury boutiques enhance this residential enclave for the discerning who demand a one of a kind living experience in New York's most established neighborhood.
