A RARE slice of New York City history awaits the discerning buyer in exclusive Sutton Place. Developed in 1875 by Effingham B. Sutton, Sutton Place rose to glamour in 1920 when the Vanderbilt and Morgan heiresses left Fifth Avenue to build garden townhouses facing the East River. 13 Sutton Place is one of the finest examples of the 14 stately homes that comprise the neighborhood's coveted U-shaped, tree-lined enclave on East 57th and 58th Streets, sought-after Sutton Square.
Built in 1875, this masterpiece single-family townhouse overlooking the East River was once home to Elisabeth Marbury, a descendent of Anne Hutchinson, a pioneering American theatrical literary agent/producer, and an accomplished interior designer for elite clients. In collaboration with famed interior decorator Elsie de Wolfe and legendary architect Mott Schmidt, the historic residence was transformed to perfection in 1920. Splendid details reflecting its storied past like gorgeous crown moldings, wainscoting, wrought-iron railings and 4 fireplaces have been impeccably preserved, while its elegant living space was opened up, brightened and modernized with luxury finishes and an elevator.
This distinguished townhouse is graced by the serenity of a lush private garden on the East River, reserved for the exclusive enjoyment of Sutton Square residents. Fabulous water views and breathtaking sunrises captivate you from all five levels of the home's gracious interior. Generously-proportioned rooms accommodate lavish entertaining and comfortable living, with 4 bedrooms, 6 full baths and 2 powder rooms. Private outdoor spaces provide the ultimate setting for appreciating nature's beauty, with a garden patio, 3 balconies and a rooftop terrace oasis all overlooking the East River. A large finished basement offers separate staff quarters and a kitchenette.
Unparalleled luxury and seclusion are matched by a prized address, moments from the heart of Midtown Manhattan.
