The Duke-Semans Mansion: One of Fifth Avenue's Last Great Private Residences. Built in 1901, this is the only mansion available for sale that is directly on Fifth Avenue. It was deemed the "most important example of Beaux Arts residential architecture in the city" by an early critic. Remarkably, it is still in the hands of the descendants of its original owner, tobacco magnate, Benjamin N. Duke. It is the last best of a group of four mansions built by William and Thomas Hall, designed by Welch, Smith and Provot. The original architects were held in the highest regard because "none but the best material and workmanship were permitted," reports an early source. Not only does the mansion have 27' directly on Fifth Avenue, but it is perfectly positioned on the southeast corner, with an extremely elegant facade running 100' along East 82nd Street, arguably the most prominent townhouse side street, characterized by the finest collection of "Beaux Arts Style" mansions remaining in New York today. Its three huge windows to the west, and 6 to 8 windows on the northern side, as well as windows to the east and south depending upon the floor, flood its grand rooms with brilliant light. Comprising over 19,000 square feet on 8 levels, it is simply the finest residence ever to come on the market in New York. Its two outdoor terraces are planked and planted and offer superb views of Fifth Avenue & Central Park in a setting of indescribable charm. Co-Exclusive.

Additional features of this building include: Co-Exclusive and Very Good Condition.

Upper East Side

Upper East Side

Upper East, from 59th 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 a co-op or condo can be found for everyone. Strict co-ops (some with incredible 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. New luxury condo buildings include 20 East End Avenue, inspired by the pre-war architecture of the Upper East Side, and Citizen360 which is committed to sustainable building practices.
