5A is a gracious four-bedroom, four-and-a-half-bath 2,885 SF residence that provides a flexible floor plan and North and West exposures, highlighting the charming townhomes and treetops along 78th Street. With a private elevator vestibule, the apartment provides the utmost privacy on the Upper East Side while the light filled great room is the ideal place for entertaining. Chevron and straight plank wood flooring run the length of the apartment as well as tall ceilings and detailed crown molding provide the perfect canvas for applying your own style.

The heart of this home is a windowed eat-in kitchen featuring cabinetry designed by Robert Couturier in collaboration with master carpenter, Christopher Peacock. The much loved and coveted French-made Lacanche gas range and vented hood highlight Couturier's Parisian flair. Additional appliances include a Miele 30' wall oven, speed oven and warming drawer. Sub-Zero refrigeration and wine storage blend in seamlessly with the custom cabinetry. Custom knobs and pulls designed by Robert Couturier complement the Statuarietto stone counter, backsplash and island.

The Master bedroom suite has two large closets and a five-fixture bathroom clad in honed Bianco Crisium and Bardiglio Nuvoletto stone. The bath features a soaking tub, heated floors, steam shower, Lefroy Brooks fixtures and a separate TOTO water closet.

All secondary bedrooms have an en suite bath and generous closet space. A bedroom can be easily converted into a dressing room, library, at home office, or an extension of the great room for additional entertaining. In addition, there is a charming powder room tucked discreetly off the entrance gallery and a laundry room with a sink and vented dryer.

150 East 78th is a thoughtfully designed boutique building by Robert A.M. Stern Architects. Their timeless architectural approach is married perfectly to the interiors' prewar sensibility and Parisian flair of AD100 Hall of Fame designer Robert Couturier. The stately facade features distinctive handset Indiana limestone, patterned brick, and ornamental metalwork. Inspired by the neighborhood, Robert A.M. Stern Architects designed an exterior steeped in New York City Classicism. The 16-story building's overall aesthetic is refined and distinguished, highlighted by arched windows, limestone pilasters, and rich green metal and glass conservatories. The canopied entrance, located on 78th Street, fits in beautifully with the neighboring townhomes and treelined street.

Multiple levels of carefully curated amenities include: a regulation squash court; a regulation height basketball hoop; a golf simulator; a top tier fitness center with Technogym equipment; a private training/yoga room; a children's art and activity room; and the entertaining Parlor which has full height arched windows, a billiard table and catering kitchen. Additionally, a rooftop terrace with amazing views, limestone archways and an outdoor kitchen/grill provide space for dining and sitting by the gas fire pit.
