40 East 81st Street

In the heart of NYC’s Upper Eastside, this stately townhouse with its many beguiling historic features and modernized kitchens inspires the consummate host and captivates the architectural connoisseur. Located between Madison and Park Ave this townhouse comprises five well-appointed stories of multiple spaces for living, dining, and working within its two spacious home offices; and makes it the perfect setting for intimate gatherings and lavishly planned dinner parties. Invite your guests to dine amongst a backdrop of elegant and remarkably preserved 150-year-old millwork reflected in the dining room’s beautifully vintage crown molding and fireplace hearth. A traditional home setting, enjoy a sense of comfort and relaxation within its five uniquely designed bedrooms, and four full and three half baths upgraded with exquisite high-end finishes. Separate floors and the additional kitchenette create an ideal environment for extended-stay family and guests. Relish in the views afforded by the 5th-floor terrace providing that distinct neighborhood feel, and truly relax and enjoy a peaceful spring day in the city within the privacy of your own 1st floor garden. Cheered by the blend of classic exposed brick walls and modern kitchen design, indulge your culinary skills in the bright and airy space replete with state-of-the-art appliances and a cozy breakfast nook overlooking the back garden. The master suite is a sanctuary for those who appreciate lounging in the sun under a beautiful bay window, bathing in the luxurious clawfoot tub, and attending to work in a library surrounded by floor-to-ceiling rich walnut bookcases and cabinets alongside a cozy fireplace. With so many classic features and conveniences, such as the elevator and with fireplaces in almost every room - five of them woodburning, experience a modernized yet old-world feel in this magnificent renovated home. Stroll Central Park or enjoy the finest shops, cafes, hotels, and museums all within walking distance alongside the best schools. This townhouse is the ideal setting for anyone desiring a distinctly characteristic, prime, gold coast Upper Eastside lifestyle. Along with the unique potential to combine an adjacent property for fashioning a 32-foot wide townhouse, this property becomes even more alluring as it allows you to create your own one of a kind ultra-luxurious townhome in one of the most sought after locations in the city.
