Our favorite listing this week goes to 156 East 62nd st. Originally built in 1899 this 5-story, 6-bedroom, 8-bathroom single-family home is a study in contemporary luxury in New York City. Features of this 20-ft wide, 7,500 sq. ft. home include a commercial grade elevator servicing each level and the roof, ten zones of HVAC, massive windows, a masterfully restored central staircase, soaring 13-ft ceilings, a custom home automation system, wet bars on every floor, a south-facing garden, and a finished rooftop terrace with gorgeous views of the surrounding skyline.
The main entrance on the garden level opens into a gorgeous foyer adorned with a large cedar coat closet and a powder room. Past a central landing the home flows into a sitting room with a wet bar and custom Nana Wall folding glass doors that open directly into a private south-facing garden. One flight up, the parlor level contains a formal dining room and a stunning eat-in kitchen.
The dining room boasts bi-fold doors that open into the garden below while the kitchen is equipped with a look-through gas fireplace, an eat-in peninsula, lavish marble countertops and backsplash, custom cabinetry, a walk-in pantry, and a suite of high-end stainless steel appliances.
On the third floor resides a sublime master suite that consists of a south-facing bedroom, a gas fireplace, a pair of dressing areas, and a cavernous master bathroom that features marble walls and floors, dual vanity sinks, a free-standing bathtub, a two-person walk-in steam shower, and heated flooring.
The remaining five bedrooms and four bathrooms occupy the fourth and fifth levels of the home. In addition, the fifth level also contains a living room/play area. Crowning it all is a raised rooftop terrace that spans the length of the building. A pristine basement with 10-ft ceilings, a yoga studio/gym area, a cedar sauna, a steam room, a laundry space, and a spectacular glass-enclosed wine closet finishes the home.
