The Philip House is an 11-story, prewar building that has been converted into more than 100 luxury condos by Cheshire Group, the development company that acquired the property in 2011.
Located at 141 East 88th Street in the Carnegie Hill section of the Upper East Side, Philip House was originally designed in the 1920s by Philip Rhinelander for the upper-class denizens of New York City. His design featured old New York City luxury with its units enjoying servant quarters with separate entrances. These have now been reimagined as expanded condos displaying a more contemporary chic style with a soupcon of country flair.
Cheshire has transformed the entire building with residents looking to raise families on the Upper East Side in mind. The revamped units of the Philip House now enjoy Belgian blue stone countertops in large kitchens with built-in eating nooks, all with light oak flooring and prominent molding accented throughout—features that only add to the relaxed, luxury feel instilled in them from the mind of renowned decorator Victoria Hagan.
The Philip House has a roof-top terrace designed by landscaper HM White that is connected to the building’s rooftop club room. The building also boasts a 24-hour doorman, state-of-the-art fitness center, children's playroom, game room, music practice room and plenty of storage, including the option for a private storage facility for residents.
