About 238 E 68th Street

Situated on a coveted, tree-lined block on the Upper East Side, 238 East 68th Street is a sophisticated five-story single-family townhouse offering grand scale, radiant light, and tranquility. Impeccably renovated by award-winning architect Mark Stumer, this pristine house boasts fifteen rooms spanning approximately 6,500 square feet of interior living as well as a landscaped south-facing garden and finished rooftop terrace. Greeted by a dramatic double-height ceiling gallery, the proper foyer opens to a spacious mudroom with plentiful storage and a powder room. Continue down the hallway and you will find an en-suite bedroom with access to the garden. Completing the floor is a four-person elevator with cherry wood and mahogany hoistway doors that serve the entire residence. One flight up the glass-enclosed staircase, the remarkably grand living/dining room exudes sophistication and elegance and is bathed in sunlight. The room is complete with a marble fireplace and a gorgeous wet bar to allow for easy entertaining. The dining room flows to an enormous eat-in kitchen, which boasts top-of-the-line appliances and a wall of south-facing windows, allowing for natural southern light to stream in. The kitchen is perfectly positioned overlooking the garden with access via a staircase. The expansive and beautifully landscaped garden has a delightful pergola and BBQ area, providing a serene escape from the city. The third and fourth floors are the designated living quarters. The primary floor encompasses complete luxury and functionality allowing circular access from the primary bedroom, connected to the beautifully appointed bathroom, to the gracious dressing room, and lastly to the refined library. The fourth and fifth floors feature three oversized bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms and several closets. The fifth floor is the ultimate sanctuary for relaxing and entertaining, paired with a finished rooftop for seamless indoor/outdoor living. The lower level, currently utilized as a gym, has endless recreational space and flexibility, in addition to a second powder room and an abundance of storage. Off the gym is the laundry room that exceeds expectations with two stacked washers and dryers, a full sink, shelving, and a large closet. Additional comforts include recessed electric blackout blinds in the bedrooms, a video intercom security system, and multi-zone central air-conditioning. Located in the heart of the Upper East Side, 238 East 68th Street is moments away from Central Park and amongst the city’s finest shops, restaurants, and multiple subway lines.
