Meticulously crafted by architect Tasos Kokoris and interior designer Don Boehm, this sprawling residence welcomes you with a gracious foyer finished with Saint Laurent Portoro Gold marble, gilded walls, bold millwork and tall ceilings trimmed with cove lighting. An oversized California Closet nods to the exceptional storage found throughout the home.

Palatial living and dining areas flow to an east-facing terrace perfect for after-dinner drinks or morning coffee overlooking the East River and Carl Schurz Park.
