This extraordinarily special and immensely grand duplex apartment is perfectly situated in one of New York's most iconic gilded age mansions, The James H. and Cornelia V. Robb House. Designed by the great American architect, Stanford White, and constructed in 1891, this extraordinary mansion is a spectacular tribute to an Italian Renaissance Palazzo.
Upon entry, one is immediately captivated by the grandeur and timeless elegance of this unique space. The Living Room is the stand-out; with soaring ceiling heights of 15 feet, elaborate original plaster moldings, a huge white and black marble fire mantle, extremely tall windows, and access onto a lovely terrace overlooking Park Avenue. Adjacent is the double height Dining Room with an impressive floating staircase, an adjacent Kitchen and access to additional storage space.
Upstairs, the Master Bedroom Suite also faces Park Avenue and has 12 foot high ceilings, another spectacular original fireplace, a large Bathroom and tons of closet space. There is a second Bedroom which enjoys a full Bathroom just across the landing.
The beautifully scaled rooms, period wood paneling and hardwood floors, and the elaborate plaster moldings add tremendous appeal because so few of these great Stanford White designed buildings retain their architectural integrity today.
Formerly the home of jewelry designer Kenneth Jay Lane, a constant society figure and frequent entertainer, this magnificent residence has hosted the likes of countless recognizable names.
