Description

This iconic brownstone, steps from Central Park, was built in 1891 by Gilbert Schellenger on a storied block, once home to financiers Bernard Baruch and partners Samuel Goldman and Marcus Sachs. Visionary American fashion designer Perry Ellis oversaw a meticulous restoration of the original mahogany, cherry and oak architectural details, adding floor-to-ceiling French casement windows and Art Deco bathrooms from The Savoy Hotel in London. A subsequent owner commissioned the noted American designer, artist and sculptor Ward Bennett to bring the house fully into the 20th century with his serene contemporary American vision.

The house was most recently updated to 21st century standards in 2015. A Garden Entry leads to a Center Hall which opens to spacious Bedroom/Office with a full Bathroom, a Powder Room and a spectacular eat-in Chef's Kitchen with fireplace, center island, walk-in pantry, six-burner professional Garland range, oak millwork, aged white Carrera marble countertops and elevette/dumbwaiter. A light-flooded corner Breakfast Room enjoys garden vistas through floor-to-ceiling arched French doors. Brick walls detailed with arched cornices rise 6 feet to surround a sunny landscaped Garden.

The Parlor Floor entry boasts an extraordinary paneled vestibule with a coffered ceiling and is ornamented by original doors, paneling and a stairway of gleaming light mahogany. French doors open to charming Juliet balconies, providing pleasing southern light and air. The well-proportioned reception rooms each enjoy a fireplace with French limestone mantelpiece, original pocket doors and a wet bar.

A Study/Game Room overlooks the lush garden and is wrapped by floor-to-ceiling French doors. Upstairs, a Master Bedroom Suite includes a sunny Library with a fireplace, lighted bookcases and a Kitchenette. The Master Bedroom overlooks the garden and features a fireplace, a luxurious Art Deco Master Bathroom and an original Dressing Room.

The upper floors include as many as 5 Bedrooms with 3 fireplaces, original Dressing Rooms, marble Bathrooms, a Kitchenette and a lovely terrace. A full Basement with Utility, Boiler, Storage Rooms and a climate-controlled Wine Cellar complete this spectacular home.
