Situated at 17 East 93rd Street surrounded by the stately townhouses of the Upper East Side, this 20-foot-wide, 7,500-square-foot home was designed in the Renaissance Revival style by William Graul in the late 1800s. It has since had a complete renovation that spanned over three years, resulting in a home that offers beauty, comfort, and luxury behind a restored classic brownstone facade. Asking $20,000,000, the single-family townhouse even has an elevator, putting each of its five floors within easy reach.

Built for modern living and year-round entertaining, this stately home has four bedrooms, a library, five full baths, three powder rooms, six fireplaces, and a cellar laundry, plus several levels of landscaped garden at the rear. The contemporary renovation maximizes light and space from front to back without sacrificing high ceilings, gracious rooms, and detailed finishes.

Enter at the garden level through a grand foyer framed by limestone floors, 10-foot ceilings, a gas fireplace, and a gracefully curving stairway at the center of the home. Through sliding doors is a chef-ready kitchen that’s both of-the-moment and classic, with custom walnut cabinetry designed by Smallbone of Devizes, Jerusalem marble worktops, and top-of-the-line appliances. Adjacent is a family room with a fireplace.

The home’s urban oases include a garden-level patio, a parlor-level balcony, and a fifth-floor terrace. Perfect for entertaining, family dining, and gardening, there are 1,000 square feet of outdoor space in all.

On the parlor floor, the space flows easily from the living room to the dining room. Each space has a gas fireplace and 12-foot ceilings. For effortless entertaining, a serving pantry lies just off the dining room, with cabinetry by Smallbone of Devizes, Miele appliances–and a dumbwaiter,

The jewel of the third floor is a mahogany-paneled library anchored by a limestone fireplace, with views through a classic bay window. On the third and fourth floors are three large bedrooms, each with an en-suite bath.

The primary suite comprises the home’s entire fifth floor  A sun-filled south-facing bedroom features a gas fireplace and plenty of closet space. A sitting area is separated from an equally delightful and grand bathroom by a glass door. A private terrace overlooks the gardens below.

The cellar level of this townhouse makes it even more of a perfectly-functioning home, with a den and a full bath, a laundry room, a large wine fridge, and storage. Throughout the house, seamless technology includes a six-zone HVAC system, a security system, and a Crestron lighting and entertainment system.
