Modern Dreaming on the UES

Every time I pass this special condo building located just east of Park Avenue at 135 East 79th Street, I am stunned by its singular beauty.


Built in 2012 by the Brodsky Organization and designed by William Sofield, it is the quintessential Upper East Side modern dream made painstakingly with old world craftsmanship. The building sits on the site of the Hunter School of Social Work and sold out quickly based on floorplans alone!


As far as I’m concerned, they need a sign that says “Do Not Touch.” This fabulous structure has breathtaking, unique limestone frontage of two 22-foot chiseled pear tree relief sculptures designed by an Indiana artist that adorn the entrance way of wrought iron gates forged at the same foundry as those at Buckingham Palace.


Amenities include a landscaped private garden courtyard, fitness center, lounge, catering kitchen, club room and large private wine cellars, bicycle and private storage. Interiors include solid herringbone-pattern wood floors, slab stone, custom millwork kitchens, lighting, and closets, hand cast hardware and crown trim details and you’re in luck because there’s room for you!


Recently, there was a 6-bedroom, 5-bathroom mansion for sale listed at $19,750.00. To learn more about this building see the link below. For a look at other special locations on the Upper East Side or elsewhere in Manhattan: Ask Me!
