April 21, 2014 - New York City
Located on the Upper East Side, steps from some of the world's top cultural destinations, high-end retailers and fine dining institutions, 155 East 79th St. embodies Anbau's ongoing commitment to creating high quality residences that are personal and contextual.
"Growing up right next door to 155 East 79th St., and spending most of my adult life on the Upper East Side, this project truly offered a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to present buyers with homes that, we feel, convey the best characteristics of this iconic neighborhood through and through," said Barbara van Beuren, partner of Anbau. "For 155 East 79th St., we sought to seamlessly blend classic old world elegance and the necessities of modern urban living with contemporary detailing, an infusion of rich materials and timeless layouts that maximize on natural light and private outdoor space."
155 East 79th St. is designed by a highly experienced and acclaimed team of BKSK Architects, with interiors by Pembrooke & Ives. The property's faÃ§ade is distinct, while simultaneously complementing the neighborhood's refined architecture with a limestone base and marble brick on the upper floors. The building's faÃ§ade is further accented by oversized windows, French-inspired ornamental metal work and Juliet balconies.
The grand residences are envisioned by Andrew Sheinman, of Pembrooke & Ives, as a series of townhouses with a classic enfilade design, a sequential arrangement of rooms to allow for a flawless transition between space and an abundance of natural light through the length of each home. The home design is punctuated by carefully sourced and custom finishes that balance modernity with traditional elements, including wood and plaster crown moldings, imported Chesney's marble mantels and hearths, and artisanal glass pocket doors.
"The opportunity to live in a new construction condominium in one of the most coveted locations on the Upper East Side is extremely rare," said Beth Fisher, senior managing director of Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group, the exclusive marketing and sales team representing 155 East 79th St. "Coupled with the current shortage of five-bedroom homes in this highly sought-after neighborhood, we anticipate strong interest in 155 East 79th St."
155 East 79th St. offers five duplex homes with five bedrooms, five baths, one powder room and private balconies. Additionally, the penthouse includes five bedrooms, five bathrooms, one powder room and private landscaped terrace, while the maisonette offers four bedrooms, four bathrooms, one powder room and private garden. All homes feature direct elevator entry, wood-burning fireplaces, grand foyers with custom marble flooring and exceptional lighting design that creates a luminous quality in areas such as the dining room, kitchen and powder room.
Located between the dining and media rooms, the chef's kitchens at 155 East 79th St. serve as the central compass to the ground floor public spaces in each residence. The kitchens are designed for function and entertaining with a dramatic stone slab island, Vetro Bianco glass slab counters, custom walnut cabinetry, polished marble flooring edged by wood borders and premium appliances including Miele refrigerators, dishwashers, convection and speed ovens, Gaggenau gas range cooktops and wine storage and LG washer and dryers.
Master baths showcase sumptuous materials and generous proportions. The double vanity and oversized tub are wrapped in Vanilla Cream onyx and accented by polished chrome fixtures. The white lacquer vanity is beautifully suspended and lit from beneath for a radiant effect. The space is completed with Vetro Bianco glass walls and honed Grecian marble flooring.
