Steven Harris custom-designed townhouse
Featured on Open House NY on NBC, 163 East 82nd Street is a triple-mint Steven Harris custom-designed townhouse showcasing the ultimate in quality, elegance, innovation and style. This extraordinary residence presents state-of-the-art comforts melded with remarkable scale and detail. The 6-story, 19' wide home has nearly 7,000 interior square feet, high ceilings (12' on the formal floors) and approximately 2,000 square feet of gorgeous outdoor space that includes a double tiered landscaped garden, a French-style terrace on the 5th floor and a beautifully landscaped roof deck with outdoor kitchen. Superb natural light floods each floor through top quality floor-to-ceiling windows with insulated glazing and a dramatic skylight casting light throughout the house.
An elevator services all six floors with a layout of five, six or seven bedrooms, five full baths, two half baths, and two floors of formal space plus a renovated basement with excellent storage and wine cellar. A sublime full-floor master suite includes a luxurious Calacatta Gold bath with Italian heated towel rack, radiant heat floors, double vanity, steam shower, separate toilet room, deep-soaking tub and the ultimate in luxury -- a custom closet and double dressing room.
The entire house was rebuilt from the ground up with modern systems with the addition of significant enhancements thereafter. Modern elements recreate old-world elegance with three-tier crown and baseboard moldings, custom-designed wrought-iron railings with Rosewood banisters, wide-plank reclaimed Russian oak wood floors, pocket doors and three wood-burning fireplaces.
A Savant Smart House with a unified and remote Ipad touch system provides control for high-end lighting, audio, shades, temperature and humidification control and security throughout. The kitchen and all bathrooms are equipped with top-of-the-line reverse osmosis filtration system and there is a wine room in the cellar. A European spa with sauna and steam room resides on the garden floor.
A spectacular custom-designed gourmet kitchen boasts top-of-the-line full-size professional appliances including one 48 Sub Zero refrigerator, Wolf 60 six-burner range and grill double oven with vented hood, two Bosch dishwashers, four Sub Zero freezer drawers and Sub Zero dual temperature wine refrigerator. This sleek space features custom cabinetry, Calacatta Gold marble counters and backsplash, Dornbracht fittings and two sinks with garbage disposals. No two bathrooms were designed alike and feature spa-like comforts and select luxury materials including Calacatta Gold marble.
This stunning and sun-filled Upper East Side luxury home is perfection with nothing omitted in comfort, function, amenities or design.
