SPECTACULAR 40 Ft. TROPHY MANSION
Perfectly situated on one of the most beautiful tree-lined blocks in the Upper East Side Historic District, this impressive 40 Ft wide Neo-Georgian mansion is one of the most important private residences in Manhattan. Distinctive features include a classic limestone and red brick facade that is enhanced by beautifully articulated stone ornamentation, and a handsome three-story bow front.
The main entrance to the residence is framed by wrought iron portals, leading to two sets of double wide doors. The stately limed oak paneled 400 square foot gallery beyond continues into the center stair hallway, which boasts a remarkable original elliptical staircase. The southern wing of the first floor includes a study, a media/family room, a large breakfast room, and an enormous eat-in Kitchen with state-of-the-art appliances. An inviting south garden with a waterfall and glass pavilion complete this level of the home.
The main entertainment floor above features an exceptionally grand and massive 38 x 26 ft living room with soaring ceilings and amazing architectural details, including two fireplaces and a bow-fronted window that provides calming views of the trees and landmarked mansions on 63rd Street. The south wing of this floor includes a gracious formal dining room and a stately library with a wood burning fireplace.
The third floor is devoted entirely to the enormous primary bedroom suite. The sprawling main bedroom has the same footprint as the living room below and there are double dressing rooms, a south facing sitting room with a fireplace and two oversized bathrooms along with exceptionally large custom-designed closets.
The fourth and fifth floors provide a total of six additional bedroom, each with a bath en-suite. In addition, the north wing of the fifth floor has a 37 x 20 great room, which could be used for casual living, or as a playroom.
The top level of the home has two massive landscaped roof terraces with open city views in every direction.
The lower level of the home has a full size screening room, as well as a wine cellar, staff kitchen, exercise room, dedicated laundry room and huge amounts of storage.
Designed in 1930 as the prestigious Hanger Club, this residence of great architectural importance is an extraordinary example of important American early twentieth century architecture. Meanwhile, the amenities and modern conveniences of the 21st Century are very much in evidence and are exhibited in the impressive systems that govern temperature, security, music and lighting within the house. Moreover, the superb location on such a beautiful and tranquil block, serves to further elevate 36 East 63rd St as one of Manhattan's Trophy Mansions.
