69 East 91st Street - Carnegie Hill, New York
Internationally acclaimed architect Annabelle Selldorf has transformed this remarkable Carnegie Hill townhouse into a classical modern masterpiece combining the best of uptown sophistication with unpretentious contemporary flair. The elegant stucco facade is distinctive on this prime block nestled between Park and Madison Avenues, revealing one of the house's many prized attributes: a garage. The garden floor features a perfectly proportioned kitchen and family room leading to a tranquil, landscaped garden. A stairway (or elevator) leads to the Parlor floor with an elegant living room and dining room: a dumbwaiter connects it to the kitchen below. An intimate library/media room connects the living and dining rooms and features a fireplace. Arched, south facing full length windows afford superb light all day long. A pair of large French doors with balconies in the dining room overlook the garden. The Master Suite (the entire 3rd floor) features a large bedroom with a fireplace, office, huge walk in closets, a dressing room, a gym and an exquisitely detailed bathroom. Four additional bedrooms & bathrooms and an extraordinary roof terrace, make this a prize property of distinction.
