The Spencer Condominium
Upper East Side, New York, United States
This spectacular terraced 5,190 square foot Penthouse is Perched high atop one of the finest limestone-sheathed mansions. Steps from Fifth Avenue, the full service Pre-War Condominium was designed by renowned architect Horace Trumbauer in the neo-French Classic style. The 42-foot wide mansion is one of the few remaining examples of the architect’s “great houses” in New York.
A private elevator Entry Hall leads to a dramatic two-story Gallery which adjoins a light-flooded Living Room, each with a wood-burning fireplace. These superb reception rooms, ideally suited for entertaining, are distinguished by soaring 23′ ceilings and elegant parquet-de-Versailles flooring.
The original architectural detail was painstakingly restored by museum-trained artisans. A spacious corner paneled Library and a Formal Dining Room featuring ornate 18th century French panels, each include an original wood burning fireplace and overlook a sunny, south-facing terrace.
Upstairs, a sumptuous corner Master Bedroom suite overlooks another lushly planted south-facing terrace and offers majestic views of the City and Central Park. The suite features a second full Bathroom and a corner Office. Downstairs, an expansive corner Sitting Room with wood-burning fireplace adjoins two additional Bedrooms, each with an en-suite Bathroom.
