Delano & Aldrich were New York’s most sophisticated architects, with clients such as the Knickerbocker, Colony, and Union Clubs, the Council on Foreign Relations, and the American Embassy in Paris. In 1903, Delano & Aldrich was formed and secured commissions from the Rockefellers, Stokes, and Winthrops. Their form of architecture adapted conservative Georgian and Federal styles for their townhouses, churches, and schools, mixing the classical orders of architecture with their level of modern imagination. This home is a supremely designed and elegant masterpiece with extraordinary presence and precise attention to scale, dimension and detail, with eight floors above grade giving it over 11,000 square feet of living space arranged in the most intelligent manner for the efficient running of a large household with ease and grace. The property has the rare fortune of having double exposures in the rear and there are floor to ceiling double-hung windows facing south and west giving the rooms unparalleled light. Two lovely terraces grace the dining room and living room with an additional entertaining terrace on the top floor with full southern sun. There are 8 bedrooms, each with private baths, two kitchens and a wine cellar. Additionally, there is a full-size gym and pilates studio and separate massage room. Elevator access to all floors, central air with individual room zone control, and 8 wood burning fireplaces are incorporated in this exquisite home.

Upper East Side
Upper East, from 57th Street to 110th Street, from the East River to Fifth Avenue, with Sutton Place and Carnegie Hill as separate enclaves.
The Upper East Side historically exemplifies serious landmark-type apartments but remains a neighborhood where there’s a co-op or condo for everyone. Strict co-ops (some with o’-say-can-you-see Central Park views) continue to prevail in the Upper East Side from Park to Fifth Avenues, but there are plenty of studios, one- and two-bedroom condos, and rentals on the Upper East Side as well. Luxury new condo buildings include the Laurel, with a world-class gym that would satisfy any triathlete, the Lucida, and the Brompton.
