Beautifully located on a prime tree-lined townhouse block on the Upper Eastside, this light-filled modernist classic landmarked house breaks with convention. Sunny and chic, the entire facade of this Victorian-style home was replaced by legendary architect Edward Durrell Stone with glass and the front facade extended, enlarging the house. On top of the glass is a lacy concrete grill with whimsical shapes in elegant, geometric patterns allowing light to filter in throughout the day. From the inside, the occupants reap the benefit of a light-infused glass house while the artistic grill provides full privacy from the outside, a masterful achievement solving the problem many houses have of limited light. This artful grillwork is subtly repeated in several interior areas, in woodwork in the living room and on the library ceiling and on the terrace and garden walls. On the entry level is a home office/media room, kitchenette and bedroom with full bath and garden access. One flight up on the parlor floor, the 12'3'' ceiling provides drama while the white chef's kitchen, adjacent sitting area, powder room and open dining to living room plan enables relaxed entertaining. The living room leads to the south-facing glass covered terrace, which overlooks the garden. On the third floor is the master suite with a sleek renovated en suite bath and a library. There are two additional bedrooms on the fourth floor, each with their own bath, and a second washer/dryer. Mechanicals and laundry are located in the finished basement. The entire home has been renovated. 130 East 64th represents a unique opportunity to live in an Edward Durrell Stone architectural masterpiece.
