Jaime Richichi Presents
Discover a masterful renovation at the Townhouse at 127 East 62nd Street where downtown chic meets Upper East Side sophistication. Perfectly situated off Park Avenue on one of the most beautiful tree-lined blocks on the Upper East Side sits an oasis of peace and a gem of urban living waiting to be discovered.
This captivating townhouse has recently undergone a two-and-half-year, multi-million-dollar gut renovation. The sun-lit residence has been beautifully restored and its recent monumental transformation brings open downtown loft living to a Manhattan townhouse located in the prestigious neighborhood of the Upper East Side two blocks from Central Park. No detail has been spared in recreating this impeccable home of luxury that features Calacatta marble walls, wood-burning fireplaces, white oak floors and finishes, Italian fittings, skylights, and a living green wall.
Paying homage to the minimalist aesthetic of Mies van der Rohe, Philip Johnson, and John Pawson, this historic house is striking in symmetry and timeless in design. The sun-lit interiors are spacious and thoughtfully designed with many social spaces for living, dining, relaxing, playing, and working. This south-facing home is flooded with abundant natural light. Each floor consists of uninterrupted living spaces separated by floor-to-ceiling glass doors from Varenna. Four floors of this six-storied house are flanked by six working fireplaces, some of which are European period pieces that have been painstakingly restored. The outdoor spaces are generous in size, boasting views of the Manhattan skyline and greenery.
Upon entering the home on the parlor floor, one is greeted with a dramatic entrance of a floor-to-ceiling,12-foot full-slab Calacatta marble wall that serves as a foyer leading into a vast gallery and sitting area. Two similar floor-to-ceiling full-slab marble fireplaces create warmth and ambiance, while a floating pocket wall slides seamlessly to allow for separation of space while entertaining. Complete with a stunning full bathroom with radiant floor heating and white oak closets, this space is easily transformed into an additional bedroom.
Take the elevator up one floor and be immediately transported into an urban sanctuary nestled in greenery and bathed in light. This level of the custom townhome features large skylights and is bright and open. The kitchen is fitted with the latest state-of-the-art appliances such as Sub Zero, a top-of-the-line Wolf cooker, a steamer oven, a stand-alone island, a Varenna kitchen sink, custom cabinetry from Poliform, and a wood-burning fireplace. At the end of this floor lies a secret greenhouse nook that holds a living hydroponic-fed green wall of verdant flora and ferns. Step out of the kitchen into your open–concept family room and into your sun-lit dining room that is complete with another floor-to-ceiling marble wood-burning fireplace.
Take the custom white oak staircase to the next floor of the home, and you will arrive at a full floor dedicated to your primary suite. The calming, south-facing zen-inspired master bedroom suite features a bespoke and distinctive marble fireplace enclosed in a fully sound-proof room. Step down the hall into your walk-in closet, and a full wall of custom closets guides you into the magnificent windowed, marble master bathroom which is thoughtfully separated to create symmetrical his and hers spaces.
This stunning home balances grand scale, fine aesthetics, and state-of-the-art finishing. For the discerning buyer looking for downtown living in the coveted Upper East Side location, this is an urban sanctuary of luxurious living and restorative peace in the heart of the city. All with the unmatched privacy and security that only a townhome can offer.
