MODERN MASTERPIECE – $16,000,000
Nestled along the exclusive 70’s Gold Coast corridor in the heart of the Upper West Side, this sun-drenched, 20-ft. wide townhome weaves together a collection of state-of-the-art finishes and an intuitive layout into a striking expression of urban luxury. With 8,507 sq. ft. deliciously spread across 7 stories as well as 1,800 sq. ft. of outdoor space, this sprawling home captures the loft-like essence of Downtown and combines it with Uptown elegance, comfort, and style. And all of it is less than 2 blocks from Central Park.
In the front of the house, mahogany double pane windows punctuate the façade and seal out street noise in a synthesis of modern functionality and old-world aesthetic. In the back, glazed 22-ft. double-height atrium-style windows frame a south-facing garden saturated with natural light. The garden, equipped with a premium gas BBQ grill, is perfect for an outdoor kitchen setup, catering, and entertaining.
The Poggenpohl designer kitchen on the family floor is decked out to the max. It features a suite of high-end appliances from Miele, Viking, and Sub Zero, and comes with separate coffee and juicing stations. It is anchored by a huge Imperial Danby Marble Kitchen Island that seamlessly facilitates food preparation while comfortably seating 4 for breakfast.
At the core of the home sits a brand new and rarely found high-speed, commercial-grade elevator that serves all 7 floors from cellar to penthouse. An elaborate AV and Elan Smart House system allows the owner to control the entire house right from a mobile phone.
9.5-ft. ceilings with an open area and a light well from the garden. Additional amenities include a 1000-bottle temperature-controlled wine cellar, bike room, laundry, extra refrigerator, and utility/storage room. This space is perfect for a gym, playroom, office, or recreation area.
9-ft. ceilings with an open, state-of-the-art eat-in kitchen, a 6-ft. Sub Zero refrigerator, a double-oven, two dishwashers, Wolf and Miele appliances, and Carrara marble counters. A TV wall and a lounge area is the ideal place for kids to entertain their friends after entering through the closet-adorned mudroom and hanging their “stuff”. With its own separate powder room, the garden floor is a perfect central gathering place for family meals, video games, and outdoor/indoor togetherness.
Perfect for entertaining, a formal entryway leads to a grand reception hall adorned with a tasteful powder room and a wet bar with a natural stone countertop and custom millwork that conceals a fridge, wine-cabinet, and icemaker. A sweeping modern staircase is illuminated by a picturesque rooftop skylight, and a spectacular 1,200 sq. ft. living room is outfitted with 6-inch wide plank white oak flooring, airy 12-ft. ceilings, and a Taj Mahal quartzite natural stone gas-burning fireplace. The coup-de-grace is the south-facing 22-ft. double-height wall of glass which frames a tranquil, tree and plant-filled backyard.

The bedroom boasts another Taj Mahal natural stone gas-burning fireplace for romantic cuddle-ups or lounging in privacy with a good book. Beyond a curated art wall lies a flexible room that could be used as a master of the universe office or, if so inclined, an extra dressing room for the fashionista of the house.
Two oversized bedrooms, one with a south facing terrace, feature en-suite baths with showers, limestone walls, and Ann Sacks ceramic tiled floors. Between the rooms lies a side-by-side washer/dryer surrounded by custom cabinetry for extra storage. A huge linen closet is conveniently located across from the laundry.
