178 East 75th Street is an iconic home of distinction thoughtfully renovated and curated by renowned international artist, Ilana Goor and her husband. Built circa 1903, this 5-bedroom, 5.5-bathroom single family home is one of only approximately 75 carriage houses left in New York City and includes a drive-in garage on the street level. A rare blend of character and modern luxury, a carriage house on this grand a scale is uncommon in a city where many landmark carriage homes stand out for their instantly recognizable facades rather than their size. This 6-story elevator home literally rises above and offers a fresh exciting view from every angle. In addition to over 6,600 square feet of interior space, there is a serene south-facing garden patio as well as a 1200+ sq. ft. roof deck with birds-eye views of the neighborhood. Inside, bright open spaces, skylights, double height and 10-12 ft. ceilings bring a sophisticated, gallery-like ambiance to every level. Gorgeous hardwood floors, exposed brick, recessed lighting, and oversize windows that welcome abundant natural light grace the home and create a one-of-a-kind atmosphere for creativity. The show-stopping solarium-style living room overlooks the garden and trees behind and boasts convenient built-in storage, as well as built-in speakers, and Creston entertainment and maintenance system. The street level includes a large gallery space with 22 ft. ceilings next to the garage which could also be a reception area, lounge, work/hobby space, or an extension of the garage fitting up to 3 cars, a precious find in the city. Next, the second level includes a spacious billiard room overlooking the gallery below plus a self-contained bedroom with en suite bath with direct elevator access that’s perfect for live-in staff. The kitchen, dining room, and solarium living room are seamlessly open on the third level with the chef’s kitchen featuring a Sub-Zero refrigerator and Wolf range/oven. The fourth level includes two bedrooms, fireplace, and two full baths. The fifth level boasts a lavish full-floor primary bedroom suite with small kitchenette, wood-burning fireplace, two walk-in closets, and a sun-soaked, spa-like bathroom with double shower and Jacuzzi tub, plus stairs to the rooftop terrace. Finally, the English basement offers a full floor of amenities for exercising and pampering yourself at home. In addition to a fitness room with shower, bath, and powder room, there are a sauna, 2nd eat-in kitchen, and family room/lounge. Squeeze in a yoga session, detox in the sauna, grab a post-workout snack or smoothie, refresh in the bath, and take some rest or enjoy an in-home massage in the lounge. The ultra private garden patio is accessed from this level. Nestled amidst climbing ivy and brick walls, it’s a rare and lovely retreat hidden in the bustling city. 178 East 75th Street is located on an historic, spectacular block on the Upper East Side that showcases some of the city’s most well-known architectural styles and is also home to the highly rated St. Jean Baptiste High School. Just 4 blocks from Central Park and 2 blocks from the subway, the finest dining, culture, recreation, shopping, and educational institutions in Manhattan are at your fingertips. This home is a unique opportunity where history, fine art, and modern luxury converge. Move-in ready, the home’s exquisite artworks, Rolls Royce, and furnishings are included with the sale.
