143 East 69th Street is a historic single-family residence located in the heart of the Upper East Side. Originally built in 1879 by architect James E. Ware, this neo-Grec-style home has been lovingly restored and renovated. At six stories tall, plus a full-height finished basement, this approximately 5,000 square foot home is configured with four to five bedrooms, which includes a full-floor primary suite, an office/den, and six bathrooms. The gracious ceiling heights and large windows on each level allow natural light to flood the home from front to back.
Upon entry through the ground level, there is an eye-catching view of the maturely landscaped garden and glass solarium extension. This deep floor plate allows for an eat-in kitchen with service entry to the street, a built-in banquette, and high-end Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances, as well as a large dining room with a centered wood-burning fireplace and a sitting area that leads to the private outdoor space.
The Parlor Level is open and ideal for both entertaining and lounging. Ceiling heights of approximately 12 feet, well-preserved period details that include plaster moldings and fireplace mantles, and 3 gracious windows at the front and rear facades create the perfect setting for this floor. A wet bar and powder room are perfectly concealed and positioned on the large central landing, offering flexibility. In addition, the extension off the ground level allows the most discerning buyer the opportunity to create a private terrace overlooking the garden in the rear.
The third level is dedicated to the primary suite with a large bedroom in the rear, ample closet space throughout, and a pass-through marble tiled, five-fixture bathroom that leads to the mahogany paneled front office or den.
The fourth level features two graciously sized bedrooms each with an en suite bathroom, while the fifth-floor penthouse level acts as an additional bedroom or sitting area with a full bathroom. The excavated cellar with approximately 9-foot ceiling heights is outfitted with tremendous storage, a gym, a steam room with a shower, and all the mechanical systems for the home.
