Description

TIMELESS ELEGANCERarely do design and spatial elements hit just the right notes as they do in this opulent, David Easton designed, 25-ft. wide townhouse located in one of Manhattans loveliest townhouse blocks within the Metropolitan Museum Landmark District.Nestled between Fifth and Madison Avenues, this fine red brick and limestone house was built in 1866 by Charles Graham for cotton dealer Michael B. Fielding of the family firm Fielding & Gwynn. In 1904 it became the residence of Isaac D. Einstein who was president of the International Handkerchief Manufacturing Company.Four stories in height above a high English basement, perhaps the most striking feature of the house is a two and a half-story projecting bay of limestone, which rises from the garden level to the third floor. The three-sided bay is elegantly accentuated by classical details. Although removed years ago, the door was originally was located on the parlour floor and reached by a high stoop. Today, exterior mahogany doors are flanked by two freestanding Ionic columns, which support a blank entablature that now serves as a sill to the parlour floor transomed casement window above. Majestic interior bronze doors open onto a breathtaking, grand double-height entry gallery. To the left is a regal formal dining room with wood burning fireplace separated from the rear eat-in kitchen by a handsome butler service area. A charming sun room and delightful garden can be accessed from the breakfast area of a bespoke kitchen equipped with top of the line appliances and custom wood cabinetry. A mud room and powder room is also located in the rear.The home enjoys impressively well-proportioned rooms, which include a divine living room with a wood burning fireplace, guest powder room, and an august wood-paneled library also with a wood burning fireplace, hand-carved millwork and coffered ceilings. The master bedroom floor consists of two large sumptuous baths located on each side of the wing, a serene large rear chamber facing the garden, a front study, plus a dressing hall with multiple custom closets. Five bedrooms are located on the top two floors, all with baths en-suite and a terrace on the fourth floor. Facing the street on the top floor, is a large playroom as well as a laundry/kitchenette. The cellar houses mechanical rooms, storage rooms, gym and a wine cellar. The elevator services all floors.
