    Description

    ONE VISION, ONE EXTRAORDINARY MANSION IN THE TRADITION OF STANFORD WHITEThe house designs of Stanford White embodied the ultimate achievements of The Gilded Age and created an "American Renaissance" in architecture and art. And just like Stanford White, who not only designed a mansion for his clients, but also traveled the world to collect the furnishings they should contain, this owner also traveled the world to collect the finest architectural and decoration ideas, as well as the art and furnishings, to combine the very best of the classical tradition with every modern technological convenience. JAMES ELLSWORTH The entrepreneurial, creative thread began early. Originally commissioned in 1883 for an international silk trader, this house was transformed in 1913 into its present neo-Classical style by William Welles Bosworth for James Ellsworth. Ellsworth flourished in business during The Gilded Age, achieving particular success at the peak of the economic boom between 1890 and 1920. He was a flexible American industrialist moving from one industry to another: he began as the owner of coal mines in Pennsylvania -- the coal town Ellsworth, PA is named after him. He moved into railroads, and in 1907 after the completion of a railway, Ellsworth sold his coal mines to Bethlehem Steel, and subsequently purchased a villa in Florence, Italy, and would become a notable fine art and coin collector. ARCHITECT: WILLIAM BOSWORTH William Bosworth includes among his most famous designs Kykuit, the famed Rockefeller family estate north of Tarrytown in New York, where he worked closely with William Adams Delano and Chester H. Aldrich. Under the auspices of John D. Rockefeller, Jr., Bosworth was commissioned to restore the Palace of Versailles, France, which Rockefeller financed. A century later, the present owner of 12 East 69th Street was influenced by the Palace of Versailles, which receives 3 million visitors a year, a testament to its international draw as a monument to timeless architecture. PERFECT LOCATIONPositioned a few houses off Fifth Avenue and Central Park on an exceptional residential, tree-lined block, this mansion is 40 feet wide, 90 feet deep, and features four windows across the front and rear facades providing remarkable light at all times. There is no other renovated 40 foot wide mansion available right now between Fifth and Madison Avenues. SIZEWith six levels, it encompasses over 20,000 interior square feet including the 3400sf basement with windows in the front and rear, and approximately 2,650 exterior feet on the roof terrace.FORMAL ENTRY14-foot ceilings in the entry hall open to a rotunda with 28.5-foot ceilings to the third floor. The great room in the rear of this level spans 40 feet with French doors opening to Juliette balconies and floor-to-ceiling windows. A hidden door off the main hallway opens to the top of an extraordinary double-height library and office which measures 24 feet in height. THIRD LEVELThe formal dining room also extends 40 feet and easily accommodates 40 guests or more at a sit-down dinner. The massive 40-foot-wide kitchen in the front has four windows across and almost every cooking appliance known to a chef. FOURTH LEVELTwo 40-foot-wide bedrooms could be converted to four or more bedrooms. FIFTH LEVELA massive master bedroom suite with an equally large sitting room and two full baths.
