About the Listing

Built in 1901 and designed by the firm of Welch, Smith & Provot, the exceptionally grand and remarkably beautiful 1009 Fifth Avenue was constructed in the Beaux-Arts style and is rightfully regarded as an architectural tour de force. The residence stands as a splendid example of the extraordinary workmanship of that era and is one of the very few remaining along the Gold Coast of Fifth Avenue.

The limestone and red-brick facade extends 27 feet along Fifth Avenue and 100 feet facing 82nd Street. This optimum location is especially fortunate given the lovely assemblage of grand Beaux-Arts limestone houses, its proximity to the great cultural institutions of New York City and its sublime placement in the heart of the Upper East Side.

The lower floors are articulated limestone and boast an entrance that is charmingly capped with a wrought-iron marquee. The upper floors are clad in brick and are lavishly adorned with limestone elements and accented with curvilinear bays.

The house rises eight stories high and measures approximately 20,000 sq.ft. It's unique corner orientation allows each and every room to enjoy a tree-lined street view and to receive abundant light.

Throughout the house, the interiors feature soaring ceilings, hand-carved wood paneling, lovely trompe l'oeil accents, gold-leaf trimmed fixtures, and intricate plaster friezes. The absolutely stunning sweeping staircase ascends five stories and is punctuated by vast windowed landings while the wonderful and sun dappled corner rooms to the west are perfectly balanced by the slightly larger complement of rooms to the east. The top floors also incorporate a dramatic skylight and are accessed by a separate staircase.

This exceptional offering presents the rare opportunity to own one of New Yorks most significant properties and is ready to be modernized by your architect or designer.
