Renovated Limestone Mansion off Fifth Avenue by CPH Gilbert The striking 26'-wide limestone mansion at 10 East 67 presents a rare opportunity to acquire an extraordinary Beaux-Arts townhouse off Fifth Avenue. Charles Pierrepont Henry Gilbert, one of New York's most illustrious Gilded Age architects, was commissioned in 1897 by renowned financier and art collector Jules S. Bache to craft an exquisite new mansion. Spanning 13,000 square feet over 7 levels and providing more than 1,500 square feet of outdoor space, this monumental estate offers every modern accommodation with room to spare. 10 East 67 was gut-renovated by star architect Peter Marino, and provides 20 rooms, 8 bedrooms, 8 bathrooms, and an elevator servicing all 7 levels. This mansion has countless distinguished attributes, amongst them a formal dining hall reconstructed from an English chapel with soaring 16.5 ceilings, gargoyles, and stained glass. Additionally, perched atop the seventh level is an all-glass penthouse on a sprawling rooftop terrace with an outdoor kitchen and powder room. This home features state-of-the-art biometric security with private quarters for full-time staff, UV-Sterilized HVAC, and a separate service entrance. 10 East 67 is a prominent mansion, moments from Central Park, built on the most valuable townhouse block in New York City. Garden Level: 10-foot-tall wrought iron entrance gates swing open, unveiling an ornate bow-front limestone facade and massive double doors centered on the property. Stepping through the secured vestibule, the marble-clad foyer welcomes with the crackle of a wood-burning fireplace and the sweeping expanse of a grand, curved staircase. This level features a fully-appointed chef's kitchen, an intimate informal dining room with a second fireplace, and two access points to the garden just outside. A service stairwell ascends from the kitchen to the formal dining room, and a separate staff corridor leads to a service entrance. Parlor Level: Ascending the curved staircase from the foyer, the parlor level unveils the full scale of the house. Here there is an expansive landing, a library, and a resplendent formal living room bathed in northern light. Ceilings soar to 12.5 feet, and this elegant room welcomes guests with a wood-burning fireplace, oversized bay windows, and ornate millwork. Through a discrete corridor in the south wing, the palatial formal dining hall is revealed impressively by its 16.5' ceilings and baronial fireplace. This opulent hall is ornamented elaborately with gargoyles, original detals, rich oak paneling, and stained glass. The voluminous Tudor-style chapel was imported from England and recreated by CPH Gilbert to create a rare space hidden within the mansion, imbuing a sense of reverence for those lucky enough to enjoy something so special. Third Level: The nearly full-floor primary suite exudes luxury with its lavish amenities, including a magnificent bedroom with splendid views of the limestone mansions across the street, a spacious bathroom adorned with marble, a custom-built designer dressing room, and bright views. The southern wing boasts another elegant bedroom with the most notably original details, a wood-burning fireplace, and large west-facing windows. Fourth Level: An elegant library, surrounded with hand-carved oak bookcases and an ornate fireplace offers a peaceful space for working, reading, and relaxing. The library also functions as the perfect executive office. Included are a full bathroom and additional closet space for a wardrobe, allowing for use as a bedroom. The library is flanked by two additional bedrooms, each boasting en-suite bathrooms and dressing rooms. Fifth Level: This level stands just beneath the massive skylight and glass penthouse, drawing bright light into the nearby rooms, stairwell, and stories below. High ceilings continue at over 10', creating an uninterrupted awareness of the volume and expanse throughout the home. The fifth level features a gracious family room built with a marble fireplace and tall glass doors leading to a comfortable northern terrace. The terrace presents a refreshing and scenic outlook high above the street toward other historic mansions, and provides a picturesque view of Central Park and the Upper West Side directly across Manhattan. Just outside the family room is a kitchenette, spacious glass gym, and two more bedroom suites with full baths. Additionally, the southernmost bedroom features a sizable solarium. Penthouse Level: Perched high above the street and centered on the vast 1,500 square foot terrace is the crown jewel of the property; a modernist glass and steel penthouse. Adjacent to the ou
