This is an amazing opportunity to buy one of the largest (and widest) mansion-sized townhomes on the Upper East Side, in turn-key condition, with a private parking garage and curb cut! This nearly 37' wide townhouse in Carnegie Hill was built to 'green' building standards, with top-of-the-line finishes and high quality construction, including radiant-heated quarter-sawn oak flooring throughout and a commercial grade elevator. With approximately 9,819 total square feet, including the cellar, spread over eight floors with an elevator, the house has seven bedrooms, six full- and four half-baths, three working fireplaces, crowned by a large roof deck. It is one of the most unique homes in Carnegie Hill.
Stepping inside the ground floor entry vestibule, a gracious entrance hall welcomes visitors into the home, with classic black and white marble floors and large coat closets. Off the front entry is a perfectly located staff or guest suite. To the left, a hallway leads to the oversized private garage - which can accommodate a large SUV and still have room for a small second vehicle. Continuing past the sculptural stainless steel and mahogany staircase, is the large passenger elevator - which runs from the cellar all the way to the roof - and a gym with french doors opening to its own small terrace.
The second or parlor floor is perfect for entertaining, with a spectacular 36' wide living room surrounded by eight large casement windows offering both north and south exposures. This grandly scaled room has coffered 11-foot ceilings, a working fireplace, and room for multiple seating areas. Down the hall is a powder room and an intimate library with a wet bar and french doors leading to a private terrace overlooking the neighboring gardens.
The third floor is home to a fabulous, suburban-sized eat-in-kitchen, with Thermador appliances including two dishwashers and an 8-burner gas range, cherry wood cabinets, a center island with breakfast bar and space for a large breakfast table. The adjacent formal dining room can easily seat 14 people. Down the hall is another powder room, and a large laundry room.
The fourth floor is home to the primary suite, with a 12-foot deep walk-in closet and an ensuite bath with dual-sink vanity, a steam shower and soaking tub. An adjacent bedroom with an ensuite bath also functions as an ideal dressing room if part of the primary suite. Down the hall is a perfect study, discreetly located for peace and quiet.
The fifth floor boasts four additional bedrooms, two with ensuite baths and the other 2 sharing a third full bath.
The sixth floor is home to another massive full-width great room, flooded with natural light from both sides through its eight arched windows. The room features a gas fireplace and room for several seating, lounging or game areas. A powder room and terrace complete this floor.
A fabulous landscaped roof terrace can easily accommodate large gatherings, and has a gas fireplace, an outdoor kitchen with gas grill, a pergola-covered dining area, lounge seating area and an irrigation system. The terrace boasts open city views out to the East River and the Triboro Bridge.
The cellar has an oversized recreation room which is ideal for a home theater, as well as space for a wine cellar and ample storage.
178 East 94th Street is located on a quiet Carnegie Hill block and is turn-key, complete with a Crestron Home Automation system, Mitsubishi air conditioning zoned by room, video surveillance, LED lighting throughout, and snowmelt sidewalks for maintenance free living.
