19th Century Park Avenue Townhouse, Two Blocks from Central Park
A dapper classical revival limestone façade belies 5,200 sq. ft. of luxuriously modern interiors at this stunning 6-bedroom, 6.5-bathroom townhouse nestled in the Carnegie Hill Historic District.
Rising 5 stories and spanning 20 ft. wide, this one-of-a-kind home was built in the late 19th century and has been modernized to the exacting standards of the present. Old-world details like ceiling medallions, crown molding, four fireplaces with original mantels, stained glass, and tall windows with charming grills blend with contemporary elements like integrated surround sound speakers, multi-zone A/C, custom built-ins, and a state-of-the-art security system.
The main level of the home has a spacious living and dining area, a central hall with a powder room, and a sun-drenched eat-in kitchen that opens up onto a lovely dining terrace with a built-in grilling station. The kitchen is equipped with custom wall-to-wall cabinets, a huge island with built-in banquette seating, and high-end stainless steel appliances.
One level up are a guest bedroom and tranquil library. The library has an attached wet bar, while the bedroom has a windowed en-suite bathroom and a walk-in dressing room with built-in closets.
Two more bedrooms and a fully-equipped laundry room sit on the fourth floors of the home. Each bedroom has a full en-suite bathroom and feature designer customizations like built-in bunk beds, desk space, shelving, and more.
On the fifth level is a skylit primary suite that is a sanctuary unto itself. It is adorned with chic built-ins, a windowed dressing room, and a windowed en-suite bathroom with custom tile work, a double vanity, a walk-in shower, and a deep freestanding soaking tub. Just off the primary suite is a spacious rooftop terrace with open city views.
The garden level has an additional bedroom and bathroom, an office space, and access to the backyard. The basement features a final guest bedroom and bathroom as well as a gym and media room.
1211 Park Avenue sits within the Carnegie Hill Historic District just two blocks from Central Park and Museum Mile. It is close to high-end dining and shopping options, and is moments from the Guggenheim and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir. The 6 subway line is around the corner and the Q is a few blocks away.
