Perched atop a historic Neo-Georgian mansion just steps from Central Park, Anne Hathaway’s house is a picturesque two-bedroom penthouse and its coveted south-facing terrace recently underwent a meticulous renovation.
The Hollywood couple bought the two-bedroom Upper West Side property four years ago for £1.9 million and have now put it on the market with Sotheby’s International Realty for £2.6 million.
The home was painstakingly redesigned by Gramercy Design to utilise every square inch, replicate original and period moldings, and seamlessly integrate modern conveniences. All of the windows are new in-swing French casements, and the white oak floors are in a classic herringbone pattern.
The Les Misérables star and her actor-producer husband recently renovated the coveted south-facing terrace, while original period features inside have been restored or replicated to create character.
One enters the penthouse via a private key-locked elevator, which opens to an elegant gallery leading to the open-plan living, dining, and kitchen areas.
The state-of-the-art kitchen boasts 18-foot ceilings with a skylight, Lumix quartzite countertops, cleverly concealed cabinetry, appliances from Miele and a 30-inch electric range.
A perfect space for entertaining, the light-filled living room features an ethanol fireplace and opens to the terrace: an outdoor oasis offering indoor-outdoor living, dining space for up to eight, a kitchen, areas for lounging, integrated lighting, audio, and irrigation, and views of the area’s landmarks, including the Dakota and the San Remo.
In the home’s private wing, the sunlit master suite features a skylight with electric shades, a walk-in closet, and bath with a freestanding tub and stylish hardware from Waterworks and Barber Wilsons.
The well-proportioned second bedroom is accompanied by a full bath clad in Aurora Blue marble.
The terrace was landscaped by Jeffrey Erb Landscape Design, with the intention to feel like an extension of the living room.
Jeffrey’s unique attention to detail for outdoor spaces in an urban environment combined with his installation and horticulture experience allow him to create some of the most luxurious private residential gardens in New York City.
