Yorkville house description

First position

Situated in Manhattan's exclusive Upper East Side, this storied home is a visual masterpiece. In rooms as finely poised as en pointe prima ballerina, pirouette past antique Persian blue sofas, original marble mantelpieces and gilded mirrors. Compose a waltz on a sumptuous antique piano, or perform the Rite of Spring among the sculpted planters of the verdant back garden.

Danseuse

Your host is a noted writer and New York native, deeply invested in her neighborhood of Yorkville on the Upper East Side.

Main suite

Open the show in the glorious sitting room where the room's centerpiece, a brooding romantic canvas, overlooks a cushioned scroll arm sofa, a quilted vermilion ottoman and Japanned side table. Take a curtain call by the floor-to-ceiling windows that shed light on an elegant antique bureau, inlaid heart-back desk chair and vibrant fauteuil.

Pass now to the parlour where you can study your moves from the comfort of a colourful day bed surrounded by wall-to-wall bookshelves, cherry wood display cabinets and a stylish Eames chair atop an animal hide rug. Plié your way to the shimmering silver chairs and stainless appliances of the open-plan downstairs kitchen. Then choreograph a dinner party among the sleek lines of the dark wood dining table and minimalist wood panel walls and brass sconces. Demand an encore in the spacious Romanesque back garden.

Coda

The Upper East Side has an unexpected community feel, especially within the neighborhood of Yorkville. Just around the corner are shoemakers, glass restorers, first-rate butchers and florists. Check out the ravishing Carl Shurz Park, or venture to the lesser-known treasure of the river Promenade. Meanwhile, the nearby 4, 5 and 6 trains easily position you to access the rest of the city.
