A 5-Story Townhouse Off Park Avenue Hits the Market for $16.4 Million

Robb Report

May 12, 2024


The elegant residence in Manhattan's Lenox Hill offers six bedrooms, a private garden, and rooftop terrace views.

New York City hotspots like Rockefeller Center, the Met, and Central Park Zoo are a stone’s throw away from Park Avenue, which makes living off the famous strip incredibly desirable. An elegant townhouse, once home to an interior designer, was recently listed in the Lenox Hill area of the Upper East Side for $16.4 million. And just like its triple-mint condition facade, it stands out for more reasons than one. 


Accessed through a gated entry, the five-story abode seamlessly fuses historic charm with modern luxury across its 5,750 square feet of living space. Six bedrooms and bathrooms fill up the home, plus one powder room. Details like French limestone floors, neoclassical moldings, and Venetian plaster walls give it architectural gravitas, while deluxe features like marble baths and a rooftop terrace add to the homes comfort and luxury. Loy Carlos of Nest Seekers International holds the listing.

Beyond the towering white exterior, the black-and-white chef’s kitchen sits on the first floor with upscale appliances, island seating, and a breakfast booth. Striped, black-and-white flooring, a patterned black-and-white backsplash and a couple of thorny light fixtures give the room a bold, graphic appeal. The 24-foot-long dining room, large enough to comfortably include a tableside grand piano, features a one-of-a-kind black-and-white fireplace and a dozen Ionic colums lining the walls. One floor up, a street-facing living room with soaring 12-foot ceilings is joined by a library with built-in shelving, a fireplace and a wet bar.

The primary suite occupies the entire third floor and offers a wood-burning fireplace, a marble bathroom and a spacious dressing room. Two more bedrooms are found on the fourth level, both with private bathrooms, and there’s a sitting room and another bedroom up on the fifth floor, which opens to a small terrace. Marketing materials state the views are lovely from the top floor, but they’re guaranteed to be even better from the rooftop terrace. 

A private south-facing garden is accessible from the dining room, back on the first level as well. A custom artisan-crafted elevator services the basement as well as the top four stories (the fifth floor and roof terrace are accessible by the stairs). Additional creature comforts include a finished basement with a gym, a huge laundry room and tons of extra storage space.
