Many an Upper East Side apartment boasts gracious rooms, decorator swag and grandeur to spare. This one-bedroom co-op at 18 East 84th Street in a prime spot just off Fifth Avenue has designer cred with cool, creative execution–and it doesn’t sacrifice a bit of grandeur. This enviable “penthouse” residence is on the top floor of a turn-of-the-century Georgian mansion with plenty of original historic details joining unique and stylish interiors; it’s currently asking $1.095 million.
According to the listing the home, on the market for the first time in over 30 years, has been featured in Elle Decor and Better Homes & Gardens. Interior designer T. Keller Donovan provided the dose of sophistication and style that complements its original charm so well, starting with a grand foyer/entryway made distinctive by a frame of David Hicks wallpaper and white marble flooring.
Refinished herringbone floors, soaring ceilings, a decorative fireplace and original wainscoting carry the home’s sophistication, charm and character throughout. A spacious living room, big enough for entertaining and dining, is flooded with sunlight all day.
Off the living room is a large and well-maintained windowed kitchen in pristine white–including white Corian countertops–accented in steel grey.
The oversized master bedroom measuring 19 feet in length also includes a large walk-in closet. You’ll also find 13-foot ceilings and plenty of additional storage space. The bright and stylish bathroom features a skylight, soaking tub and shower.
Surrounded by treasures like the Met and Central Park plus restaurants and shopping, the elevator building is pet- and pied-a-terre-friendly and part-time-doorman-blessed–not bad for a 120 year old mansion.
