Description

Originally constructed in 1903 by John H. Duncan (the legendary architect of Grants Tomb) in Beaux-Arts Style, this approximately 15,000 square-foot six-story limestone mansion sits on what is now one of Manhattans most elite residential blocks. William T. Georgis, one of the worlds best, and most glamourous, architect and designer, was enlisted by the current owners to bring back what Architectural Digest calls the homes Gilded Age Splendor. The sprawling grand entrance features a massive carved mantel over a wood burning fireplace and original malachite and mosaic floors that were discovered and restored during the three-year top-to-bottom renovation.
The kitchen features small bone cabinetry, Carrara marble countertops and backsplashes, a breakfast room, and a wood burning fireplace. A study is connected to the kitchen by a butlers pantry and provides access to the outdoor garden. A vestibule with custom coat closets and a powder room complete the first floor.
The sweeping marble staircase with decorative wrought iron and brass balustrades takes you up to the majestic gallery summoning you into the formal living and dining rooms with soaring 17 foot tall ceilings. The solid mahogany pocket doors, decorative glass windows, skylights, and original brass and crystal hardware all play on the grandeur of the house. The wood burning fireplace, quarter-sawn white oak wood floor in Parquet de Versailles pattern and nearly floor to ceiling glass French doors in the living room create a grand space for entertaining. The dining room, which is connected by a wet bar and powder room, enjoys a highly unique and unobstructed view overlooking gardens and spans one full city block to the Pierre Hotel. The marquetry underfoot is inspired by floors at Pavlovsk Palace in St. Petersburg. Tucked away in the rear is a butlers pantry and two story staff suite.
The third floor boasts an impressive custom master library with custom millwork paneling and shelving with leather panel inserts. The mans quarters, with a full bath and dressing room, is distinguished by mahogany-tone lacquered millwork with bronze trim creating the feel of an old school gentlemans club. The shower is equipped with custom Olympic Grey marble shaving sink and anti-fog shaving mirror. The master suite with custom made carpet by Georgis lives at the south end of the floor. Connecting is Her boudoir that is appointed with a Waterworks tub, gas fireplace, heated floors, steam resistant mirrors, and Biszet cosmetics refrigerator. A private stairwell leads you up to Her dressing room, a three room suite, with custom millwork cabinetry, glass shelves, lighted handbag display and a temperature-controlled vault for furs. Two bedrooms suites, both with en suite bathrooms conclude the fourth floor.
The fifth floor includes two additional bedrooms, one currently being used as a smoking room. Down the hall is the media room which includes a full wet bar and billiard room whose walls are upholstered with custom Hermes leather.
The rooftop terrace is complete with elevator entry and contains a lounge area, dining area protected by a cedar pergola, a full outdoor kitchen with built-in BBQ grill and outdoor refrigerator, powder room, 3-jet fountain, Zen rock garden and breathtaking front and rear views of Central Park.
Directly from the rooftop enter the private elevator to the lower level spa which includes an array of luxuries comprising of a massage room, sauna, cold plunge pool, a gym with fritted glass rooftop and natural daylight, wine cellar with custom oak millwork and service entry.
The high-tech amenities include: Crestron control full house system integration including lighting audio/visual, security, house water filtration system, Seura mirror LCD TVs incorporated into millwork in Kitchen, Master, Her Boudoir and Media rooms, keyless alarm entry and snow melt frost sidewalks.
