Historic Stanford White Mansion on East 73rd Street In 1904, Charles Dana Gibson commissioned Stanford White to design and build this 22 foot wide brick and limestone mansion in the Neo Federal style. With Doric columns and a mansard roof, the Gilded Age house was built by the finest craftsmen of the time. Elegant period details can be found throughout, while the entire house has been renovated, updated and maintained to the highest standards of today. The elegant interiors are by AD 100 Ellie Cullman of Cullman & Kravis. With approximately 10,000 square feet, six bedrooms, spectacular entertaining spaces, a large and welcoming kitchen with direct access and views on to the lovely garden, a basketball / sports court, a media screening room, an elevator to 6 of the 7 floors and north / south exposures, this home is spacious and has abundant light, including skylights on the upper levels. The grand entry, with a welcoming gas fireplace, leads past an exceptionally wide staircase to the large, eat-in kitchen, with a significant pantry and back stairs to the butler’s service pantry on the parlor floor. A sliding door leads graciously to the garden which features a subtle waterfall, a large gas grill, a table for al fresco dining, open seating, planters, garden beds and flowering trees. There is an unexpected and open view across the back façades of the elegant townhouses to the north. Also on the entry level are two large coat closets, a powder room and an elevator as well as access from the kitchen to the extensive lower level of the house. The parlor floor’s grand living and dining room have ceilings over 13 feet high and floor to ceiling south facing windows. There is a wood burning fireplace in the living room and French doors that open to a planted balcony. Joined by a large central hall landing, the dining room maintains the original quarter-sawn oak paneling, a signature of Stanford White design. There is a gas fireplace with a carved stone mantle and a nine-foot-tall window that overlooks the garden. Beyond the dining room is a butler’s service pantry with two additional windows overlooking the garden, extensive storage in wood paneled cabinetry, and a staircase to the primary kitchen below. A powder room is also found on this floor. The third floor features the primary suite with bedroom, dressing room, additional walk-in closet and a newly renovated bathroom with a soaking bathtub and double steam shower. The large library is across the hall; each of these rooms has its own gas fireplace. Three bedrooms are on the fourth floor, one with an ensuite bathroom and a large hall bathroom for the two others. The fifth floor has a wood-paneled 20 x 23-foot half-basketball court with 20ft ceilings. There is also a media room with 100” TV and cinema seats, a hall bathroom, laundry/kitchenette and a windowed home office. One flight up brings you to an additional bedroom with an ensuite bathroom. The full lower level has a large temperature-controlled wine cellar, second home office, primary laundry room, home gym and sizable bedroom and bathroom. There is direct access to the street and the elevator accesses this level. There is exceptional storage throughout the whole house. Architectural details have been kept, enhanced and maintained, while all current day improvements have been carefully integrated into this home. Ready for its new owners, this is a unique and magnificent home indeed.
