Massive townhouses that have received a modern overhaul can often feel cold and museum-like, but this Upper East Side stunner has managed to maintain its warm, cozy feel after getting a state-of-the-art contemporary upgrade from two-family home to one.
Located at 435 East 87th Street, the five-story, six-bedroom home just sold for an impressive $8.9 million, according to city records. It was built in 1901, but its 6,500-square-foot interior has been completely reimagined as the ultimate “luxury entertainers’ home.” The classic décor, along with touches of the home’s history like crown moldings and a sweeping staircase, make it pretty clear why the new owners dropped such a pretty penny.
All five of the townhouse’s floors are connected by an elevator in addition to the grand, sweeping staircase. The home boasts three wood-burning fireplaces, a media room with beautiful oak flooring, a grand gallery, a living room/library, and two wet bars.
The master suite occupies an entire floor, complete with a Calacatta marble en-suite bathroom, dressing room, and study. There are also 925 square feet of outdoor space in this perfect family home, including a 700-square-foot garden with Roman Travertine stone paving; an entrance-level courtyard; and upper-level balcony.
