Move-in ready, impeccably designed, single family home. The historic Italianate style residence was built in 1865 and reimagined by architect Thomas Nash in 1904. Today, this 20' wide townhouse spans five stories and approximately 6,800 sq. ft. with a finished basement and an elevator servicing the home. The addition of the fifth floor and elevator were done by the current owners in a recently completed full renovation of the home. Additional features of the home include 7 bedrooms, 8.5 bathrooms, a thoughtfully designed staircase, impressive ceiling heights and custom moldings throughout. 123 East 71st Street is accessed through dual entrances which open into an expansive marble gallery. Separated from the gallery by double doors is a living room and a music room which both have access to the landscaped garden with a built-in grill area. This level also has a full bathroom. The parlor floor is adorned with eye catching architectural details including a view of the beautifully detailed, curved staircase from the stair landing. Columns and an arched entry open up into the south-facing, sun-filled library in the front, while oversized pocket doors open up into a formal living and dining room with a large bay window in the rear. Adjoining the formal living and dining room is a eat-in chef's kitchen with impressive 14' ceilings and a powder room. The third floor has the primary bedroom suite with a walk-in closet and full bathroom in the front and an additional bedroom and a full bathroom in the rear. The fourth floor has two bedrooms and two full bathrooms with a peaceful terrace off the rear bedroom. The fifth floor has three bedrooms, two full bathrooms and stair access to the roof. There is also a finished basement with a laundry room, gym, lounge area with a kitchenette, storage and mechanicals.
