Property Description

Situated on the southside of the highly desired tree-lined block between Madison and Park Avenues sits 68 East 91st street, a grand modernized Upper East Side townhouse dating back to 1887. This exceptional home with a gorgeous ivory facade was strategically reimagined by the noted contemporary architect Michael Lax, designer of the famous Lytegem Lamp featured in the MoMA. Lax's design presents a downtown feel at an uptown address by creating loft-like living spaces throughout the house. 68 East 91st Street is a 20-foot wide, four story single family home on perhaps Carnegie Hill's best block. Surrounded by the Dulles Mansion and the Dalton School, this light filled home is situated within two blocks of the Engineers Gate and the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir of Central Park on 90th Street. Renovated in 2000 by G2 Design, the West coast based architectural and lighting design firm, the townhouse spans across 5,500 square feet with an additional 1,100 square feet of outdoor space, offering tremendous scope and impressive ceiling heights. Design elements feature a custom modern staircase set against exposed brick, marble mantles, mosaic tile, handcrafted wood, and numerous custom built-ins for optimal storage. The garden level features a stunning, double height living room with impressive 20-foot ceilings, massive windows allowing for maximum sunlight, and a gas fireplace with an exquisite marble mantel. In addition, there is a landscaped backyard with patio, a state of the art media room with an HD projection screen and a connected apartment with its own kitchen and separate entrance that is perfect for guests, a live in nanny or a housekeeper. The second floor open plan entertaining space features a library/den with a full bath, a foyer, and an eat-in kitchen. The gourmet custom chef's kitchen has cherry wood cabinetry, stainless steel countertops, two islands, an 8 person dining space, sub-zero refrigerator, double Gaggenau ovens, and a 50-bottle wine refrigerator. The third floor features three bedrooms, one with an en suite bath, a study, full bath, and a laundry area with a double washer/dryer set. The fourth and top floor is a gorgeous light filled master floor through suite. The south facing master bedroom overlooks the tree lined street and the expansive sitting room opens onto a sunny, secluded, landscaped 275 square foot terrace. There is another gas fireplace with marble mantel, a refrigerator/espresso machine bar, a white marble master suite bathroom with steam shower and deep soaking tub, walk-in closets and grand windows. Finally, in the basement, you will find a washer/dryer, utility sink, pet bath, expansive storage space, and an impressive 5,000-bottle wine cellar. Other custom features to this home include the lutron lighting system, whole house air and water purification systems, three-zone central air, radiant heat in the bedrooms and a live camera security system. 68 East 91st Street presents a wonderful opportunity for a potential buyer to own in the prestigious Carnegie Hill neighborhood while being steps to Central Park, Madison Avenue retail, top restaurants and private schools.
