The Mansion has both a private entrance on tree lined 61st Street between Fifth and Madison Avenues as well as an entrance through the doorman and concierge attended lobby of the Carlton House. The Mansion has 3 exposures and is very light and bright. It is surrounded by approximately 2,700 square feet of outdoor garden, terraces and Juliette balconies. With its extraordinary width and depth, all the main living areas are on 4 floors instead of 5 or 6 as would be typical of a narrower townhouse. And also unlike traditional townhouses, the living spaces begin on the 2nd floor, affording a lighter and more elevated living experience. It has a commercial grade elevator large enough to quickly whisk many guests at a time from the entrance level all the way to the rooftop terrace and which also goes to the lower level where you'll find the pool and fitness center.
The mansion is currently configured with more formally defined spaces, but with minor renovation it can be very loft-like with opulent open spaces. Apart from its Landmark facade, the Mansion was totally built from scratch with state-of-the-art mechanical systems and steel and concrete construction and is ready for occupancy with minor renovation to suit your needs. It offers high ceilings, French doors to terraces and Juliette balconies, many large, tall and wide windows overlooking the tree-lined street and fireplaces. Most grand scale townhouses off Fifth Avenue tend to be dark and generally don't have gardens whereas the Mansion has outstanding outdoor areas on almost every floor and is surrounded on 3 sides with light and air. Located at the crossroads of midtown and the Lenox Hill neighborhood, the Mansion is moments away from Central Park and some of the city's favorite restaurants which are beginning to re-open including Cipriani, La Goulue, Fleming by Le Bilboquet, and Sant Ambroeus, plus of course Madison Avenue's finest stores. Ideal in every regard, visit the Mansion today to see first hand the lifestyle such a residence can afford!
A portion of the monthly maintenance for the Carlton House Mansion is being abated by the owner for five years.
