At 21 stories-high, with only one, two or three condominium residences per floor, this exquisite building offers a choice of 32 two- to five-bedroom homes, along with three full-floor penthouses and one extraordinary duplex. Carved out of exquisite hand-laid Indiana Limestone, Beckford House presents a timeless face to the bustling streets of the Upper East Side. The architecture steps in towards the building’s peak, with a series of generous terraces and Juliet balconies that open up enviable views of the city’s skyline. Beckford House offers its residents a sense of the grace of days gone by, with all of the amenities that modern living demands.
The wonderfully proportioned architecture of Beckford House provides the first insights into the scale and elegance of its interior. Each of the residences, with ceiling heights that range from nine to over eleven feet, are a delicate blend of formality and natural luxury. Classical detailing appears throughout, including geometric cornicing, rift and quarter-sawn white oak flooring and Statuary marble. At the heart of each residence is the beautifully handcrafted kitchen by Christopher Peacock, marble slab countertops and a range of appliances by Sub-Zero and Wolf. The generous, open living and dining spaces are beautifully appointed, with rift and quarter-sawn white oak flooring and custom millwork by Studio Sofield throughout. Large windows bathe the residences with light, offering residents outstanding city views.
The amenity program at Beckford House has been designed with the same sense of refinement and attention to detail as the interior of each residence. The ornate lobby, with its distinguished color palette and elegant artwork, makes a lasting first impression. Behind a highly crafted American walnut reception desk, the dedicated Beckford House concierge team welcomes residents and guests alike. Stepping through from the lobby, the resident enters a generous reception room and private lounge, with adjoining dining room and wet bar, complete with a soaring fireplace and beautiful soft furnishings. Located on the 22nd floor, the expansive roof terrace with outdoor kitchen is an oasis above the busy city streets. In the subcellar, a large fitness center and beautiful Yoga studio is dedicated to keeping your mind, body and spirit in peak condition.
