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.


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.
