The Carlton House, originally built in 1951, was redeveloped into a premier luxury condop in 2014 by one of Manhattan's premier Real Estate firms, Extell Development. This iconic building is situated in the heart of the Upper East Side, with proximity to Central Park and many of the city's finest shops and restaurants including Barneys, Bergdorf Goodman, Hermes, and Tiffany, Restaurant Daniel, Cipriani and Nobu. The full service building features an array of amenities including White Glove Doorman and Concierge, a State of the Art Fitness Center, a 65 Foot Heated Indoor Swimming Pool, Steam Rooms, Game Room, Storage, Bike Room, and Cold Storage. The brick and limestone exterior was meticulously preserved to maintain its original elegant appearance. The interiors were reimagined by the internationally recognized team at Katherine Newman Design, one of Architectural Digest's top 100 interior design firms.
