An exceptional architect designed six-bedroom townhouse for sale, spread over seven levels, plus roof deck on the Upper East Side, Manhattan, New York.
162 East 64th Street was designed by Rafael Viñoly Architects (VAR) for the Argentinian businessman Eduardo Eurnekian.
Viñoly's creations not only represent some of the most luxurious and prominent buildings in Manhattan's Skyline such as 432 Park Avenue, 125 Greenwich, 277 Fifth Avenue, but also a complex level of engineering that blends with timeless design. Rafael Viñoly is a globally acclaimed architect with stunning projects all over the world, including Tokyo International Forum, The Curve Theatre at 20 Fenchurch St in London (otherwise known as the Walkie-Talkie building). He has designed multiple airports, bridges, stadiums and several universities including the Princeton University Carl Icahn Laboratory and Princeton's Stadium.
It's a seven-storey building with a lift, constructed as a crescendo where each floor becomes increasingly spectacular.
There is no property in the city which has ever compared to this magnificent 10,400 sq ft (966 sqm) home. The bullet proof structural glass façade is the building’s most distinctive feature. The curve allows for a wider visual angle from the inside. The glass travelled from Germany to Spain where it was given its characteristic curved shape and was later laminated multiple times.
This six bedroom, eight bathroom contemporary residence was built in 2018. The property has a landscaped roof deck and multiple outdoor spaces.
The lowest level has a massive 100 ft open cellar with 36 ft ceilings. The interior has a fresh and modern style which is flooded with natural light from the large skylight. The area can be used as a meeting space, trading floor, for entertainment or sports and recreation. Other lower floors could be used for commercial use where the owner could run their business.
The fourth floor opens to a fascinating penthouse. The living room features a 34 ft floor to ceiling window that leads to a 600 sq ft (56 sqm) terrace. The living room is 1000 sq ft (93 sqm) and is perfect for entertaining or displaying artwork. A terraced dining space is paired with a good-sized kitchen with two Miele double refrigerators and a double dishwasher, wine cellar and cabinet space. Also, on this floor is a large bedroom overlooking the Avenue.
On the fifth floor, a media room separates a large bedroom on the north side and two bedrooms on the south side, all are en suite.
The master bedroom is located on the next floor overlooking the Avenue. The walk-in closet is connected to a superb Bianco Dolometti marble bathroom. The sixth bedroom also has a large marble bathroom. There are floor to ceiling windows in every room.
A skylight illuminates the way to a private roof deck with 360-degree views across the city. Security and safety were paramount in the construction process with the building supporting the best technology.
VAR will work with the buyer to customise final finishes to the taste and necessities of the new owner.
The family friendly Upper East Side is known for its prime real estate and designer boutiques and is classic New York City. Central Park is nearby and the area is easily accessed by three subway lines.
THE UPPER EAST SIDE:
The Upper East Side is old-style, luxe Manhattan where white-gloved doormen welcome you to your apartment building and where New York's most exclusive shops are on your doorstep.
Museum Mile has the highest concentration of galleries and museums in the city, some of the finest in the country including: The Guggenheim, the Jewish Museum, the Frick Collection and The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Although the Upper East Side is best known for upscale real-estate, well-known prep schools and designer boutiques, affordable apartments and relaxed living are easy to find in this quiet and bright neighbourhood.
Some of America's most famous families have made their homes on the Upper East Side, including the Roosevelts, Kennedys, Rockefellers, and Carnegies - all real-estate pioneers in the early 1900s and who developed the neighbourhood into a beautiful and upmarket place to live.
For many, the Upper East Side is the ideal balance between cosmopolitan living and pastoral sensibility. The Upper East Side has steadily become a popular destination for the under-30 crowd and tends to move at a slower, more relaxed paced than other neighbourhoods in Manhattan.
The wealth of playgrounds, community centres, and schools make it feel like a suburb within the city whilst Central Park becomes your playground when you live on the Upper East Side with no shortage of options for running and biking.
