162A East 71st Street - Upper East Side, New York
On a lush, prime Upper East Side block lies this beautiful, immaculately renovated 6000 sq. ft. - 6 bed - 6 bath - 2 powder room - 5 fireplace house, possessing dual exposures and three outdoor spaces -- a garden, a south facing terrace, and a landscaped roof deck. Further appointments include an oversized oak-paneled elevator, finished basement, and tastefully decadent touches throughout the single-family townhouse.
Through the forecourt of wrought-iron one enters the home onto the grand foyer, which is highlighted by heated marble flooring in a meticulous Herringbone configuration. From this landing, one accesses the French-country kitchen, with Bosch, Franke, & Viking appliances, and a center island topped by imported marble. For storage, a double-door pantry will make even the most persnickety of 5-star chefs pleased. Past this, the first of five wood-burning fireplaces warms the casual dining area and leads to the south-facing rear garden. This floor is completed by an extension of perfect size to serve as a home office or staff quarters, as it has a full, en-suite bath. Innumerable windows line this level to ensure gorgeous sunlight throughout, the entirety of which has hydronic flooring for radiant heat.
Up one short staircase from here is the parlor, which is open to the grand foyer below and features a formal dining area with rear lounge / seating area. The 11 ft. ceilings are adorned with beautiful molding, which matches nicely the ornate marble mantled fireplace. This floor also has an extension to provide extra entertaining options, accompanied by a Lilliputian sized wet-bar, dishwasher, & wine storage. A discrete guest bedroom and en-suite bath are also found here.
The library level is ornate both in its openness and simplicity. A delightful triple-exposed terrace is found toward the back, and twin wood-burning fireplaces wing the large wet-bar, which has a refrigerator, bar sink, and wine storage as well.
A full-floor master suite is a level up from the library, and can be accessed either by the grand stair or the Concord elevator, which services the whole townhouse. Pocket doors close-off the sleeping quarters from the rest of the floor, securing private rest and relaxation for those inhabitants of that particular north-facing room. An imperial-sized soaking tub, separate stall shower, sister-sinks, and walk-in closet complete the achievement which is the suite, the fixtures of which are Lefroy Brooks, and Urban Archeology, as they are in each and every bath & powder room.
The fifth floor has dueling front facing and back bedrooms, each with their own full bath and generous closets.
The sixth and last level of the home has a full-width bedroom, full bathroom, and amazing roof garden space, making it perfect to serve as either a second, junior level master suite, or posh entertaining floor.
