Property Description

A celebration of light, open space and luxurious green living. A work of art unto itself. The exquisite Waterfall Mansion at 170 East 80th Street is among the most unique properties in Manhattan. A creative collaboration by real estate developer Kate Shin and renowned architect Toshiko Mori has transformed this historic 22 foot wide, 1899 carriage house into a breathtaking, tranquil oasis. The Waterfall Mansion is built as a luxurious single family residence atop an incredible private gallery space. This mansion is LEED Silver certified eco-friendly, constructed with green design elements including naturally sourced and environmentally sustainable materials. Zoned for mixed-usage, this residence offers multiple possibilities for its next owner. The mansion was once the workplace of acclaimed fabric designers, D.D. and Leslie Tillett, two of the most influential textile designers of the postwar era. Their prints were associated with the likes of Claire McCardell and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. For two generations, the Tillett family used the carriage house as both a residence and a studio. In 2008, Toshiko Mori impeccably reinvented the space to integrate art, architecture and lifestyle, resulting in a combination home and gallery beyond compare. While the 19th century brick facade and stone details have been meticulously restored to their original grandeur, the interior exudes modernism. It incorporates design influences from Eastern and Western cultures, and boasts natural materials such as marble, black slate, maple flooring, limestone, and custom glass tile. At the heart of the Mansion is an exquisite 22 foot x 23 foot indoor waterfall for which the mansion was named. The waterfall serves as a symbol of home and the flow of life as well as a serene focal point for entertaining and meditation. The residential section of this Mansion is accessed by a private wrought iron entrance. The residence is configured with 6 bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms. There is a private elevator and stunningly landscaped roof-top garden. The basement level includes a 1,000-bottle wine cellar, a 2,300 SF spa-lounge complete with jacuzzi, Finland cedar sauna, gym and massage room. The Gallery space is accessed by the carriage house doors which have been beautifully styled in wrought iron and glass. The double-wide doors provide ample clearance for large art installations. The gallery currently operates as a hub for contemporary and international art, as well as a luxurious event space. The gallery walls are reinforced to support three times the weight of a typical residential wall, ideal for art installations of any size. The gallery has hosted events for top names such as Gucci, Remy, Rolls Royce, Kedar Entertainment, Swatch Group, Shiseido, Clé de Peau, Beauté, FENDI, SONY, the United Nations, and the Caterpillar Foundation.
