170 East 80th Street
Upper East Side, New York
A celebration of light, open space, luxuriousness and green living, and a work of art unto itself, the exquisite Waterfall Mansion at 170 East 80th Street near Lexington Avenue is among the most unique and significant properties in Manhattan. The creative collaboration of boutique real estate developer Kate Shin and renowned architect Toshiko Mori has transformed this historic 1899 carriage house into a breathtaking, tranquil oasis – a modern mansion filled with unrivaled amenities, elegant living space that harmoniously integrates the elements of light, air and water, and state-of-the-art eco-friendly features, all at a premier Upper East Side address.
Upon entering this masterpiece residence via the blackened stainless steel front gate, patterned with leaves to replicate speckled light from trees, you will be instantly awed by the allure of this one-of-a-kind contemporary gem. Beyond the center double doors and welcoming foyer is a wonderful gallery space with professional lighting that can accommodate an art collection of any size. Dramatic yet equally soothing is the piéce de resistance: a spectacular 23' x 20' waterfall with a reflecting pool and sculpture garden that inspired the mansion's name.
With Seven levels (including the lower level spa and rooftop garden) Five Bedrooms, Six Bathrooms, Two Powder rooms and 13,000+ square feet of indoor/outdoor space, this home has too many refinements to mention such as: a 1,000-bottle wine cellar; a 2,300-square-foot spa lounge with a Jacuzzi, Finland sauna, gym and massage room; an elevator and a LEED-certified HVAC system that maximizes indoor environmental quality. Savor the outdoors on the roof garden and the 1,000-square-foot terrace off the master bedroom. Entertaining is divine in the grand living room, generously-sized gourmet chef's kitchen with designer cabinetry and fixtures, and dining room overlooking the waterfall.
