Exquisite Renovated Townhouse with Elevator and Private Garden off Fifth Avenue
This grand and elegant, 5-story (plus finished basement) single family townhouse with an elevator is the ultimate residence for modern living. Situated on one of the most exclusive and picturesque Upper East Side blocks, 9 East 81st Street is steps from Fifth Avenue, Central Park, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. At approximately 20-feet wide and 6975 square feet (total 8275 square feet with basement), this sun filled home offers 8 possible bedrooms, 6 full bathrooms, and 3 powder rooms.
Through a vestibule on the garden floor, you will find a chefs eat-in kitchen with pantry as well as an elegant formal dining room with access to a private garden oasis. The parlor floor consists of a magnificent 18' x 41' living room with soaring 11' ceilings, gallery walls, a fireplace, and 3 over-size south-facing casement windows. This level also offers a wood-paneled library with a fireplace, entertaining kitchen/wet bar with 2 full-size wine refrigerators, and a large terrace perched above the garden.
The entire 3rd floor is dedicated to the luxurious primary suite featuring a fireplace, two full bathrooms connected by a large walk-in closet, and a separate dressing room with access to a charming private terrace, the home's third outdoor space. The 4th and 5th floors combined offer 6 additional bedrooms (one of which is currently set up as a home office and another as a small den), 4 full bathrooms, laundry room, and a skylight that crowns the main staircase. The home is also equipped with central air conditioning and a security system.
Impeccable interior and exterior renovations were completed by Peter Pennoyer in conjunction with renowned landscape architect, Madison Cox. This home has it all.
