Upper East Side Townhouse Transformed into Mansion

An incredible New York real estate transformation has been announced by WEmi:t LLC, a company that acquires and develops high-end boutique residential properties. An exquisite 13,000-square-foot modern mansion resides on 170 East 80th Street, replacing what used to be a 19th century townhouse. The property is listed for $35 million through exclusive broker Paula Del Nunzio of Brown Harris Stevens.

Designed by Toshiko Mori Architects, 170 East 80th Street is a five-level mansion with eight rooms, eight bathrooms, a spa lounge, art gallery and an elevator. The home’s extraordinary amenities include a one-of-a-kind 20-foot wide and 22-foot high indoor cascading waterfall, pond and sculpture garden, which were designed by waterfall specialists to create a serene and peaceful atmosphere. The mansion also features an art gallery on the main floor for private or commercial use; a 23,000-square-foot private spa lounge with a jacuzzi, spa, sauna, massage room and gym; and a 1,000-bottle wine cellar with customized lighting.

The focus of WEmi:t LLC is to restore and modernize townhouses into luxury lifestyle properties, such as the East 80th Street mansion. Located in one of the most elegant and historic neighborhoods on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, the mansion combines classic New York design with modern, efficient and state-of-the-art systems. “We have spared no expense to renovate this classic townhouse into a modern home with impeccable design sensibility and unsurpassed amenities,” stated Kate Shin, president of WEmi:t LLC. Over the past three years Toshiko Mori Architects has poured their heart and soul into this tremendous project.
