Introducing the Upper East Side’s exclusive new condominium residences
Welcome to Beckford House & Tower, the Upper East Side’s most exclusive new condominium residences thoughtfully designed by William Sofield of award-winning design firm Studio Sofield. The luxury buildings are situated on 80th and 81st Streets in the heart of a bustling neighborhood revamped by the newly opened 2nd Avenue Subway. The buildings successfully launched sales recently, and occupancy is expected this spring for Beckford House, with first move-ins at the adjacent Beckford Tower scheduled for this fall.
The two sister buildings are designed to bring a carefully crafted combination of classic and modern design to the city’s historic Upper East Side. This area is the birthplace of New York’s Golden Age of architecture and is known for its celebration of art, culture, craftsmanship and old-world elegance. Studio Sofield was inspired by the neighborhood’s rich history and created two buildings that would add to its distinctive character. The traditional elements include a blend of hand-carved Indiana Limestone, Brynne Brownstone and hand-laid custom grey brick on the exterior. With classic details like herringbone oak flooring, statuary marble finishes, and custom-designed Chris – topher Peacock kitchens featuring state-of-the-art Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances, the lines between the past and present are blurred. The generous layouts of both buildings allow the residences to have grand living rooms, formal dining rooms, walk-in closets, gracious entry foyers and ample gallery space.
The intimate Beckford House located at 301 East 81st Street is a 21-story building with 32 residences and a series of Juliet balconies and setback private terraces. The thoughtful design features only one to three apartments per floor, and available homes include two- to five-bedroom residences, three full-floor penthouses and one duplex. The common spaces include an ornate lobby featuring antique mirrors and specialty wall coverings by Anne McGuire Studio, a reception room and a private lounge complete with an adjoining dining room with a wet bar and a fireplace from England. The curated amenities include a fitness center and yoga studio, a spacious 1,811-squarefoot landscaped roof terrace offering lush greenery, and an outdoor kitchen with a Viking gas grill and plentiful seating for entertainment. There will also be private storage available and a laundry room with commercial-grade extra-large capacity washers and vented dryers.
The taller Beckford Tower located at 301 East 80th Street will stand at 31 stories with 72 residences featuring Juliet balconies and expansive private setback terraces offering stunning streetscape and skyline views. Here, one- to six-bedroom residences will be available and include three crowning full-floor penthouse residences that will have dramatic views stretching from the East River to Central Park. The double-height lobby will feature formal sitting rooms and a windowed-library with a decorative fireplace. The robust amenity program will include a 65-foot swimming pool, 2,825-square-foot fitness center featuring yoga and training rooms, a hot tub and a steam room. The building will also have a piano bar and lounge featuring a grand piano, party room with a catering kitchen, double-height basketball half-court, multi-purpose game room and a children’s playroom designed by Roto. Like Beckford House, the Tower will also offer private storage and a laundry room with commercial-grade extra-large washers and vented dryers.
