Town House

Built in 1899

This exquisite single-family townhouse, an architectural gem crafted by the world-renowned duo Delano and Aldrich circa 1930, stands as a testament to timeless elegance combined with modern sophistication. Nestled on a picturesque tree-lined block on East 78th Street, just off Park Avenue, this 8-story marvel that is triple mint showcases the perfect blend of historical grandeur and contemporary luxury.

Boasting an impressive 88-foot depth, the residence spans just under 13,000 square feet of space, distributed across countless meticulously designed rooms. The house has undergone a complete gut renovation, ensuring that while its original detailing is preserved, it is equipped with state-of-the-art amenities including central air, advanced security systems, and integrated smart home features for lighting, high speed internet, and sound.

The townhouse features 9 bedrooms and 12 bathrooms, all outfitted with radiant heat floors to ensure comfort in every corner. The property's architectural integrity is highlighted by its magnificent scale and grandeur, with many principal rooms enjoying double exposures. Floor-to-ceiling double-hung windows facing South and West flood the interiors with unparalleled natural light.

Outdoor spaces are thoughtfully integrated, including a private garden off the first level, charming terraces off the dining room and 7th floor, and a sun-drenched roof-deck. The home's 6 custom fireplaces add a cozy ambiance to its vast spaces. A chef's dream, the large kitchen features custom cabinetry, top-of-the-line stainless appliances, and a spacious dining area, making it perfect for both everyday living and grand entertaining.

For the fitness enthusiast, the property includes a full-size gym and an outdoor basketball hoop. The residence's central architectural feature, a graceful elliptical staircase, extends towards a vast skylight, bathing the home in extraordinary natural light. Elevator access to all floors and central air-conditioning ensure modern comfort, while wine enthusiasts will appreciate the storage for 600 bottles.

Delano & Aldrich, having formed their partnership in 1903, were known for their conservative Georgian and Federal style adaptations, securing commissions from prestigious families and institutions. Their architecture is celebrated for integrating classical orders with a modern imagination, making this residence not just a home, but a piece of New York's architectural heritage. This townhouse is not merely a place of residence but a living piece of art, offering an unparalleled living experience in one of New York City's most coveted neighborhoods. Owner/Listing Agent.
