Description:

Housed in a brick and limestone tower envisioned by AD100 architect Peter Pennoyer, his first condominium commission after a storied history of crafting the city's finest townhouses and private residences, and custom designed by world-renowned AD100 designer Victoria Hagan, the Maisonette at 151 East 78th Street offers a true respite in the city. Situated on a block fast becoming the Upper East Side's newest luxury destination with substantial single family townhouses and top-tier new developments, this 5-bedroom, 7-bathroom home encompasses over 5,000 square feet across the building's first and second floors, along with a lush private 862 square foot two-tiered garden and a dedicated guest suite. Truly gracious living in a serene, tranquil setting, all within a discreet and sought-after full-service condominium.

Enter either through a dedicated foyer on the building's main level or through direct elevator access at the second floor into the home's gallery, where a landing of Saint Laurent marble is paired with barrel-vaulted ceilings. The floor plan is Candela-esque pre-war perfection; a double-wide living room flanked by the home's library and formal dining room, featuring chevron pattern quarter sawn oak floors custom designed by Peter Pennoyer Architects. Mahogany double hung weight-and-chain floor-to-ceiling windows line the southern exposures, overlooking a row of historic townhouses. Adjacent to (and accessible from) the library is an elegant powder room with shower clad in Saint Laurent marble, allowing for use as an additional bedroom suite if desired.

Double pocket doors lead from the dining room to the eat-in kitchen, with cabinetry crafted by the artisans at Smallbone of Devises and finished in hand-painted white oak with black walnut interiors. White quartz countertops are paired with Calacatta Caldia marble backsplashes, and hardware includes Sugatsune pulls and Lefroy Brooks faucets. Appliances include a 36-inch Wolf range with vented hood, a Wolf wall oven, microwave, and warming drawer, two Miele dishwashers, and two Sub-Zero refrigerators.

The home's north wing holds the master suite, complete with its own entry gallery lined with walk-In closets and an elegant master bathroom; the bed chamber is situated facing east over a row of lush townhouse gardens. Its master bath is finished with hand-laid Sugar White and Woodgrain Light marble slabs with radiant heat flooring, an elegant vanity with maple interiors, a Kohler Tea-for-Two marble-clad cast iron tub, and a separate eight-jet steam shower. Three further bedrooms complete the floor, each with a dedicated bathroom boasting a Peter Pennoyer designed vanity with custom-laid White Carrara and Pompeion Grey honed marble mosaic tiles walls.

Descend to the first floor of the residence down an elegant staircase to a den with en-suite bath which opens onto a deep townhouse-like garden, designed by one of the city's preeminent landscape design firms. Century-old trees provide a verdant canopy over the two tiers of patio space, including a Wolf gas grill adjacent to the dining area.

Included with this sale and connected to the Maisonette's first floor entryway and staircase is unit 1A, a separately deeded and self-contained studio apartment with full kitchen and bathroom, ideal for short and long term guests, live-in staff, or perfect as a home office. Private storage is also included.

151 East 78th Street is a boutique white-glove condominium completed in 2016. Residences were constructed with state-of-the art mechanicals and environmental systems, including an emergency generator, humidification system, wiring for audio, communications, data ports and the most sophisticated air conditioning and heating system available. The highest level of service is provided by a full-time doorman, porter, and a live-in resident manager. Amenities include a gym, yoga studio, library, garden, and a bicycle room.
