The Maisonette at 151 East 78th Street is a duplex with approximately 4,493 interior SF and a lovely 862 SF garden (417 SM and 80 SM, respectively). It is configured as five bedrooms plus a library/sixth bedroom. Created for those who want the feel of a house with a garden but also love the idea of full service, security, and just one flight of stairs. This two-story residence is accessible through the lobby as well as from a private landing on the second floor. The elevator opens on the second floor directly to an intricate, hand-laid African St. Laurent and white polished slab marble floor, reminiscent of the grand galleries of the great pre-war residences. Sun-filled public rooms with elegant, Parisian-like mahogany double hung weight-and-chain floor-to-ceiling windows have pretty exposures to the south of historic townhouses on one of the most picturesque blocks on the Upper East Side. Adding to the charm is an impressive chevron pattern quarter sawn oak floor, designed by Peter Pennoyer Architects, that runs throughout the 57-foot long enfilade of south-facing rooms--the library, living and dining room. Double pocket doors lead from the formal dining room to the eat-in kitchen, created by Smallbone of Devises in association with Peter Pennoyer Architects. The kitchen is well thought out with coffered ceiling, hand-painted white oak cabinetry and specially outfitted spice, cutlery, utensil and pot drawers, all finished with black walnut interiors. Two Sub-Zero refrigerators, two Miele dishwashers, a professional Wolf range with custom-designed vented range hood, a Wolf wall oven and an island with seating are just some of the features of this special kitchen. In the private bedroom wing, the master suite has walk-in closets and a five-fixture bath with private water closet and eight-jet steam shower. Down a pretty flight of stairs, on the garden level, is a den (or sixth bedroom) with en suite bath that leads to a large, landscaped garden with built-in gas grill. The apartment has a laundry room and six full baths and conveys with storage. Among the many details that set 151 East 78th apart are olive knuckle brass hinges and doorknobs (all custom-designed and handmade by Lowe of Maine), Lefroy Brooks bath fittings, and state-of-the art mechanicals and environmental systems, including an emergency generator, humidification system, wiring for audio, communications, data ports and the most sophisticated air conditioning and heating system available.The complete terms are in an offering plan available from the sponsor, File No. CD13-0227.
