Architect: Joseph Pell & Lombardi & Associates
Certified of New York constructed a modern classic townhouse, reinvented and technologically transformed into one of the most beautiful residences in the Upper East Side Historic District. In a style reminiscent of Renaissance architecture, the home draws inspiration from classic Italian icons.
Featuring a new Caliza Capri limestone facade with Doric columns and limestone sills imported from Italy, enter the house from either the front stoop or the garden level forecourt. The parlour floor entryway introduces the cerused oak flooring and paneling which characterizes the overall aesthetic of the townhouse. Flooded with light, the entry hall presents the rebuilt main stair of the house, two substantial coat closets, a powder room, and access to the elevator. Double-doors lead to the living room which features an oversized wood-burning fireplace (convertible to gas), soaring ceilings, and views of the rear garden which can be accessed via a circular stair. The garden level includes a staff suite with full bath and kitchenette in front, a laundry room, powder room, elevator access and a magnificent chef's kitchen adorned with the finest modern fixtures such as SubZero, Viking, Miele, and a beautiful La Cornue range. The planted rear garden is decked in Brazilian ipe wood.
