Situated on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, steps from Carl Schurz Park and the East River Promenade sits 505 East 84th Street, a newly constructed, exquisitely crafted single family house, one of 14 single family houses that line the block.
Having just completed an 18 month renovation from top to bottom, 505 exudes an open, spacious and elegant vibe throughout the 5,100 square feet of interior living space. Every floor, every room feels expansive and bright with generous ceiling heights on every level. This residence features 5 bedrooms, with five luxurious and beautifully crafted en suite baths, in addition to a stunning powder room designed by restoration hardware with laser cut tiles from Nemo tile company. Throughout the house, every detail, every backsplash was thoughtfully designed not just from an architectural stand point, but from the heart. From the marble panda backsplash imported from Verona that is used in the kitchen, to the turtle granite used in the wet bar to the grand front door, imported from Mexico, you will find examples of these personal touches throughout the house. This renovation was a labor of love and the design reflects this attention to detail. Home was designed by a well known American designer who left no detail unturned.
GROUND: As you enter the house through the ground level which is a few steps down behind a gated front entry, you are met with a large welcoming entry foyer. A full bedroom/office is on your left suitable for guests, a live-in, or office with its own en suite bath. This floor was fully excavated and has generous ceiling height, with an extra wide galley leading toward the rear kitchen/dining area. Ample closets on this level, storage and pantry, and a spacious mechanical room. Charming powder room with an iron forged vanity and a faucet and accessories from restoration hardware. In the rear is a state of the art open layout kitchen with a dining area beyond. The center island is constructed out of Ceasar quartz, with an exquisite marble Panda backsplash. Other features include a 48' sub zero fridge, a double oven with microwave, a Miele dishwasher and gas top range and hood. House was fully excavated and extended by 20' feet and a stunning double height rear iron glass window sets the mood of this floor with doors that fully open up and lead out onto onto the luxurious landscaped garden beyond. Ideal for ease of entertaining. Garden is made from natural stone and cedar.
PARLOR: As you enter up the front stoop through an oversized custom made front door imported from Mexico, you pass through an entry vestibule that leads into the main living floor. Bright and open are what distinguishes this level which is set up as a double parlor with the living room in the front with a WBFP and a cozy rear sitting room in the rear which looks down onto the garden and kitchen below through three well crafted window openings. There is a center wet bar separating the two entertaining rooms, tastefully designed with lovely tile work, a wine cellar and under cabinet fridge. Opposite the wet bar are coat closets which are strategically located to allow a new owner the opportunity to install an elevator without compromising the renovation.
THIRD FLOOR: Master bedroom in the rear with an enormous terrace overlooking the garden below. Luxurious master bath with a Statuary custom-made vanity, Robern medicine cabinets with outlets inside, a marble mosaic floor and rough decorative natural stone on the back of the shower. Shower is free standing from Victoria & Albert. Custom built-in closets, his/her baths both of which are beautifully tiled with vibrant titanium fixtures, natural stone from Israel, in addition to a Caesarstone frosty Carrina vanity in "his" bathroom. The front contains a bedroom/guest room. Floor is versatile and can easily be a full floor Master suite or used as two totally separate bedrooms each with it's own private bath.
FOURTH FLOOR: Two large bedrooms with en suite bathrooms with Carrera marble floors, countertops and walls. All fixtures and accessories are top of the line from the DaVinci Collection and Phylrich faucets and accessories. There is a laundry room on this floor with a Ceasar Quartz countertop.
