Elegantly inhabiting its prime corner site on the Upper East Side, Beckford Tower is a testament to the stonemason’s craft; 31 floors of hand-carved Indiana Limestone and Brynne Brownstone embracing a range of 72 one- to six-bedroom condominium residences and three breathtaking crown penthouses. Detail is everything here, with Sofield taking inspiration from the historic architecture of this most desirable of New York neighborhoods to create a rarefied vision of modern living.
William Sofield believes that “architecture should be a backdrop for the lives of the people who live there.” In which case, those who live at Beckford Tower will have a memorable setting indeed.
Beckford Tower is a truly impressive presence on the streets of the Upper East Side. The beautiful formality of the stonework sets the scene for an interior design that finds a harmonious balance of grandeur and comfort.
Each residence features generous living and sleeping spaces, with classical detailing such as geometric cornicing, herringbone-laid oak and Statuary marble complemented by ceilings from over nine feet to over thirteen feet tall. Penthouse residences offer Upper East Side living on a grand scale, with outdoor spaces, extensive master suites, kitchens and formal entertaining rooms with custom limestone fireplaces sourced from England.
