Upper East Side Townhouse

160 East 83rd Street, New York NY 10028

Description: “Imbued with an abundance of natural light, this thoughtfully-renovated, five-story, 8,000 square foot townhouse elegantly unfurls in a string of generously-sized rooms and cozy nooks around a gorgeous spiral staircase crowned with a neck-craning oculus. And though the home’s polished façade suggests the narrow quarters typical of New York City townhouses, this home is anything but.

Hidden behind its amalgamated mask of impeccable limestone, Doric-styled columns, and dormer windows is a home that exhales into the mansion-like expanse of a 54’ triple-wide backside that climbs two floors. A modern, two-story add-on lends impressive depth to the spacious lot, enclosing a beautiful Smallbone kitchen—with exposed wooden beams, flowing countertops, heated floors, a pair of ovens, and dual dishwashers—and a 13×28’ gymnasium that sits above it, both connected by a glass-encased floating staircase. The gym is currently set-up as a basketball court but is equally suited as a workout room, yoga room, or playroom.

Also off the rear staircase is a stately, wood-paneled library complete with its own bathroom, giving it the flexibility to be used for visiting guests. All three rooms look out into one of the largest private gardens in the city, a manicured space colonized with lush greenery and areas for entertaining. The garden, spanning the entirety of the home’s unique 54’ triple-wide back, is a portrait in solitude.

A result of the bedrock that lies beneath the entire plot, the courtyard-like space sits substantially higher than townhouses to the south and creates the unusual impression of isolation as well as allowing southern rays of light to rain down unimpeded.

The home features five bedrooms, six-and-a-half baths, five gas-powered fireplaces, mahogany flooring, custom workmanship, an elevator that services each level, and state-of-the-art mechanical systems. Tall ceilings and sun-friendly windows instill a sense of airiness and space while refined styling anchor the home in city charm.

This house is perfect for families, entertainers, or those simply looking for their own haven within the city storm. Gas heated. CAC with individual temperature controls per room. Central stereo. Fully secured with alarms on all points of entry. Please allow for 24-hours-notice for all showings.”
