This magnificent residence at 141 East 69th Street is meticulous in design, incomparable in sophistication, and, quite simply, in a class of its own. From a deliberate and flawless renovation has emerged a stunning, turn-key masterpiece that exudes contemporary stylishness for the exacting lifestyle needs of the most discerning new owner. Located on one of the most beautiful townhouse blocks in the Upper East Side in Manhattan.
The primary entrance through an elegant, mahogany-clad foyer leads the way up to the parlor floor or into the eat-in chef's kitchen with a 48-inch professional Viking range with six burners, a griddle, two ovens, and a vented hood. The long, Italian quartz counters are perfect for entertaining with two sinks, two Viking dishwashers, and a Subzero refrigerator. This fabulous kitchen with a gas fireplace and its own HVAC system leads you through a wall of floor-to-ceiling glass doors to the safety of your own 36' deep private garden.
On the parlor resides the formal dining room with a wood-burning fireplace, giant bay windows, and a balcony overlooking the garden. A butler's pantry with a microwave, warming oven, and refrigerator is conveniently located adjacent to the elevator between the living and dining rooms. The spectacular living room has a gas fireplace, oversized windows that flood the room with southern light, and a spacious balcony. There are solid white oak herringbone floors throughout both rooms. The unique layout creates a surprisingly palatial and open space.
On the third floor, you will find a splendid master suite with a gas fireplace, a large windowed bathroom with a deep soaking tub, and a separate shower. An adjacent second bedroom serves the current owners as a sitting room and home office.??
The top floor features two large bedrooms - one with a gas fireplace and each with its own windowed bathroom - along with a windowed service area or home office with skylights and elevator access. A proper stairway with skylights leads the way to the roof with an open area for a roof deck or the addition of another bedroom.
The semi-detached (plus basement) four-story building with windows on three sides has been meticulously maintained and is in excellent condition with updated mechanicals including a natural gas boiler, two hot water heaters, separate HVAC for each floor, updated electric and plumbing, recently inspected hydraulic elevator with a 750 lb capacity, a central vacuum system, five working fireplaces, - four gas and one wood-burning - and discrete, enhanced security features.
