We are very delighted to present this splendid four-storey townhouse on Manhattan's East 63rd Street. This is one of just three Manhattan houses designed by famed architect Paul Rudolph, former Dean of the Yale School of Architecture.
The slick, 25-foot wide dark glass facade is elegantly understated, creating an ideal haven for those seeking privacy. Upon entering the townhouse an enchanting world is revealed, showcasing the best of Rudolph's architectural mastery. It seems inconceivable that a room with 32-foot high ceilings and a skylight can feel cozy, yet the house feels very much like a home. There are two other living rooms and four bedrooms, including a double-height master suite with a modern dressing room. The fourth floor is a fabulous guest suite with a bedroom, living room, kitchen and bar, plus a 1,600 square-foot terrace.
The beautiful clean lines and the combination of drama and intimacy makes this townhouse unique in the architecture of Manhattan. Formerly the residence of designer to the stars Halston, this house enjoys an incredible social history. This was the home-away-from-home to Andy Warhol and hangout for the 1970's Studio 54 jet set crowd. Liza Minelli was a frequent guest of the upstairs suite. Halston sold the house in 1990 to German celebrity photographer Gunter Sachs and Fiat's Gianni Agnelli.
One of our discerning clients might just provide the next chapter in this excellent home's vibrant story.
