This modern townhouse is located at East 80th Street in Manhattan, NY’s prime upper east side. The 22 foot wide, six-story townhouse was designed by architect Toshiko Mori and boasts 7 bedrooms and 7.5 bathrooms. It is listed at $35,000,000.

HERE ARE THE LISTING DETAILS:

Once an entryway for incoming carriages, the center double doors of glass are adorned with wrought iron. Two other entrances on either side allow for multiple use entry points. Inside the foyer, two oak doors open to the gallery space while a separate stair leads up to the residence or down to the spa and wine tasting room.

The gallery walls are reinforced to support three times the weight of a typical residential wall, ideal for art installations of any size. With custom lighting throughout – there are over 580 lighting fixtures in the house – the gallery walls are pre-lit for art installations. This floor also includes a powder room and office. Connected by a sculpture garden, the gallery space opens to a spectacular centerpiece: an interior waterfall measuring 22 feet wide by 23 feet tall. Carefully tuned to fall at a velocity deemed most soothing to the human ear, the waterfall and reflecting pool is an ever-changing work of art bathed in natural light by two additional lot-line windows and a skylight.

The parlour floor entertaining level comprises a grand living room, a spacious kitchen, powder room, pantry, bar, and superb dining room lit on either side by lot-line windows and a wall of Bendheim glass overlooking the waterfall and reflecting pool below. Thermador appliances, Aquapure water filtration, and Toshiko Mori-designed cabinetry and faucets make the state-of-the-art kitchen an ideal setting for any chef.

The third floor master suite features a powder room, full bath, Dornracht steam shower, Kohler “tea for two” bathtub, an abundance of closet space, a large library or office in front and a serene bedroom space in the rear. Off the master suite is a grand terrace with planted grass, wood decking, and a skylight looking down onto the waterfall. With stair access closed off by double-doors, the master suite can be accessed directly from the elevator.

Floors four, five, and six comprise four bedrooms, five full baths, a separate office, playroom, or guest bedroom with vaulted glass windows on the front façade. The roof garden is a planted, green space featuring a LiveRite auto-irrigation system.

    Are those pictures real photo’s or renderings?

    But I hate it. Some of the previous NY townhouses you posted were much MUCH better. This one is extremely boring;
    the exterior is hideous; it’s extremely bland and look at those windows!
    The interior looks like an IKEA catalog; kitchen looks okay but cheap and not what I would want in a 35 million (35 MILLION!) NY townhouse.
    And the back of the house extremely ugly, huge pieces of glass completely ruined the (probably) good looking old home.

    Such a shame. This is the LAST place I would spend 35 million on.

      They’re renderings, all of them. The first pic of the exterior is also a rendering, although it appears to be a rendering in what was a photo.

    Very sterile and ugly. No character. I always thought NY townhouses had to have character. This one doesn’t, and it’s pricey as heck.

    I can appreciate it, but I don’t like it. At all. I’m all for adding as many windows as possible to a house to bring light in, and I don’t mind the top level of glass on the front. But, the back of this looks like it was simply stuck on, without any thought of or sympathy toward the original building. The interior is just not me, but beyond that it’s just boring. Plus, adding any personal items to the interior, like pictures, toiletries in the bathrooms, or anything on the counter of the kitchen, will ruin the design.

    Read an article about this place and the woman investor who was doing it. While it’s not typical of a NYC townhouse i’d bet it sells in the low 30’s or high 20’s. The location and size are essentially unbeatable. This place also fills the void for modern townhouses which there are very few of. And there are a very large number of people in NYC, even on the UES that have very modern taste. Most of you would be surprised to see how many older townhouses have been re-done and decorated very modern on the inside. The renderings make it hard to see the potential of the place, but I bet the finished product will be spectacular, albeit not in my taste. The size, features, and location will sell this place, probably close to the asking price.

    I can understand the appeal of a thoroughly modern townhome interior behind a (mostly) traditional facade, but when I plunk down more than $30 mil on a NYC townhouse, I want character and history. This place has neither, and the spaces, at least judging by the renderings, do not suggest a price tag this steep. This is a missed opportunity.
