The listing for this 10,000-square-foot townhouse at 51 East 80th Street calls it an “inspirational brownstone oasis,” and for mere mortals who aren’t planning to acquire a $28.75 million home, it’s inspirational living at its finest. The 1883 Upper East Side residence recently received a thoroughly modern renovation that elevated the home’s historic charm to “wow” levels.
The home’s main spaces span five stories including stunning, impeccably-designed spaces–like an open living area with 12-foot ceilings– for every kind of entertaining. You can navigate these levels via internal elevator.
Every floor offers outdoor space, including a private garden, entertainment terraces and a large rooftop terrace.
With up to six living areas that will work for both formal and casual events, you’d never run out of options.
To those living spaces, add six double bedrooms, eight baths and six fireplaces.
The kitchen is a vision in white, modern enough not to have upper cabinets and practical enough to work storage into every free space. On the home’s basement level is a 1,500 bottle wine cellar and a gym. And it’s all just a block from Central Park.
