“Quality is never an accident; it is always the result of intelligent effort.”
One enters this exquisite maisonette from its own private entrance on 86th Street or through the lobby of this elegant pre-war coop with a full-time doorman. The level of craftsmanship throughout the residence is unparalleled. This meticulous renovation was overseen by the distinguished architect Dean Telfer, emulating the Arts and Crafts decorative and fine arts movement.
The ground floor living room and dining room have magnificent hand-crafted coffered ceilings, cabinetry, railings and moldings. The hand-painted Venetian plaster walls create a warm ambiance and are the perfect back-drop for an art collection.
This home boasts a beautiful kitchen with light streaming in through a stained-glass window, two Viking ovens, a warming drawer and a large pantry. This space is perfect for entertaining on a grand scale or having intimate family meals. The second floor includes three large bedrooms and two baths. Radiant heated floors complete the luxurious master bath.
This is a period piece with every detail carefully curated. The gas fireplace features Tiffany tiles and copper surroundings. Central air is on the first floor and a central vacuum system, abundant closets and original herringbone oak floors add to the charm of this amazing home. The building has a shared garden where one can enjoy a morning coffee and both floors can be accessed through the main building and elevator. This is a unique house to call home.
