Beckford House

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 meticulous detailing at street level is exceedingly important; it shows just how much thought has gone into the whole project.”

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.

“We always wanted to choose white Statuary Italian marble; it is such a beautiful feature of those elegant New York buildings of the 1920s and 1930s.”

“There’s an elegance to the way the rooms unfold; they take on different functions depending on who’s using them and when.”
