Description

Attention to detail is abundant in this exquisite Classic Six in Carnegie Hill; a pristine sample of the gracious living of a bygone era. From the very first step into the gleaming white-marbled lobby, an impossibly attentive staff caters to the unspoken need. The senses are transformed - transported, even. A brand of elegance, once thought to be extinct, thrives here. In the building. In the home.
A tastefully adorned, semi-private elevator landing opens to an impressive formal entrance gallery. The rarefied craftsmanship of yesteryear is palpable. Finely hewn herringbone floors and richly detailed moldings enliven the architecture and affirm that this is a special place, indeed. The living room, with its lofty beamed ceilings and enchanting wood-burning fireplace, benefits from its open southern exposures and room enough to create multiple seating groups and still allow for free-flowing entertaining.
The formal dining room commands special attention. So large that it is currently configured as a spacious, windowed dining room and a separate media room, this unusually grand space is amply capable to accommodate banquets of baronial proportions. At more than twenty-four feet in length, this space is sure to embolden even the most adventurous of hosts.
The heart of any home is usually its kitchen, and this home boasts a heart of gold. This bespoke custom kitchen was painstakingly handcrafted in England by world-renowned designer, Clive Christian. Expert carving and warm hues are complemented by the cool functionality of marble and steel to create an environment that is consistent with the building's historic provenance, but also decidedly modern in its convenience. Finished to the same exacting standards is the adjoining breakfast area - quaint, elegant, and inviting.
Two large bedrooms and two baths complete this home's private wing. The Master bedroom boasts south and west exposures, four roomy closets, and a renovated Master bathroom.
