This is more than a townhouse. This is a story. It begins in antiquity where neoclassical design draws its inspiration. It extends to the First French Empire when architecture evoked the ambition of the ancients. This timeless tradition continues with 232 East 63rd Street - A 21st Century celebration of past, present, and future. Whoever said, "They don't build them like they used to," has never been inside this 25' wide townhouse. A 5-year renovation brought together a team of international artisans to complete this breathtaking expression of neoclassicism that spans almost 12,000 square feet (1,115 square meters).
The grandeur of each room is made all the more magnificent by remarkable attention to detail. There are hand-painted murals that adorn walls and sinks. There are handcrafted roses by J.P. Weaver Company that sweep along the central staircase. There are bathrooms of pink, red, green, white, and gold onyx. There are bedrooms lined with silk walls, corridors of Venetian plaster, and elegant mosaic tiles that blend seamlessly into the larger narrative of the house.
And that narrative is magnetic. Legendary designer Clive Christian envisioned a kitchen like none other in New York. It completes the parlor floor that is suitable to host everyone from foreign dignitaries to friends and family. Above this floor, the amenities continue with a private screening room, billiard room, three terraces, and a roof deck with glittering views of the skyline. The luxuries do not end there. On the 1st floor, there is a grand foyer, formal sitting room, and private garden. The basement has been recast as the ultimate spa. Complete with a pool, Jacuzzi, sauna, gym, and 2 bathrooms, this spectacular level defies all expectations.
The latest security features have been installed giving peace of mind to any owner while present or abroad.
What better way to enter a townhouse of this magnitude than via your own private garage? Built to house a chauffeured vehicle, this uncommon townhouse amenity is included with 232 East 63rd Street.
Like any story, this townhouse awaits its next chapter. And all that is missing is its next owner who can live in this house happily ever after.
