This home is a 35-foot-wide, wonderfully light and bright house with architecture that, depending on the owners’ style and decor, can be a grand and more traditional house or very open and loft-like. Approximately 10,000 square feet, the house is a unique combination of high ceilings, a beautiful sculptural staircase, French doors to terraces and Juliet balconies, wide windows with charming tree filled views and elegant and graceful spaces that can be opened to each other or remain defined and more formal.
Unlike many traditional houses, the living spaces of 19 East 61st start on the second level, so everything is more elevated than a more traditional townhouse.The width and depth of the house allow for multiple interior spaces on each level.
Well-placed terraces as well as the pretty tree lined 61st Street make every room feel attached to something green outside. French doors with balconies also allow for open doors on almost every floor.
19 East 61st is attached to the Carlton House and can be entered through the super-chic lobby of Carlton House or directly from 61st Street. The owner will also have the use of all of the amenities of Carlton House, including the doorman and concierge, a 65-foot pool, a fitness center with steam room, a game room and bike and tenant storage.
19 East 61st is newly constructed with the highest caliber systems, finishes and windows and is ready for occupancy with just minor customization to suit each owner’s needs. This home is listed for $32.5 million with Stribling & Associates, a member of Luxury Portfolio.
