Description

This world class, custom designed, out of the ordinary, remarkable 20 foot wide townhome with soaring 21 foot ceilings at its pinnacle and a DRAMATIC archway will satisfy those with a discerning eye. This unforgettable townhouse, built in 1891 by a renowned architect who enjoyed international recognition is perfectly located on a beautiful tree lined street in the Historic Treadwell Farms District. This masterpiece is among the most prized homes in New York City. There is no substitute for perfection, 234 East 61st Street, a beautiful four bedroom, four and one half bath sanctuary awaits! Upon entering, a welcoming gallery greets you and is the perfect space for displaying your art collection. Entertaining is opulent and seamless in this stunning living room with high 21 foot ceilings, a marble fireplace and two stunning architecturally distinct arched doors encased in gorgeous wrought iron leading to the tranquil south facing garden. In 1910, the home was expanded and a DRAMATIC arched curve which "WOWs" the eye was added and is reminiscent of Gothic architecture. An impeccably designed chef's kitchen is a masterful work of art with custom cabinetry, granite marble countertops and backsplash, a six burner Viking hood, Sub-Zero refrigerator, dishwasher and wine refrigerator with banquet seating area. The parlor level offers a dining room that comfortably seats fourteen (includes dumbwaiter) and this level also has a powder room. The generously sized master suite, the epitome of elegance, is perfectly located in the back corner of the building ensuring tranquility. The master suite enjoys a relaxing fireplace and a perfectly private pin drop quiet SOUTH facing terrace. The Zen inspired master bath indulges you with a double sink vanity, stone floor, exquisite fixtures, a deep soaking tub and separate shower. The library has exquisite moldings, a wet bar and wood burning fireplace and can be easily transformed into an additional bedroom. There are two additional well-proportioned pin drop quiet bedrooms. Gleaming oak hardwood floors, beamed ceilings, decadent moldings, an exercise room, a laundry room, and incredible storage, complete this magnificent townhome. FAR allows for another floor to be built too! https://one.h5property.com/buildings/234East61stStreet
