Built in 1924

The former home of legendary philanthropist David Rockefeller for 70 years, this magnificent, 40-foot wide mansion spans 12,500 interior square feet with an additional 3,500 exterior square feet. One of the finest townhouses in New York City, 146 East 65th Street presents the rare opportunity to own a newly-renovated, key piece of Manhattan's storied past.

The eight-bedroom, Colonial Revival masterpiece was originally constructed in 1924 and painstakingly underwent a four year renovation/restoration by top AD100 Steven Harris Architects which was completed in 2022 with exquisite interiors by Miles Redd. Elegant sitting rooms are perfectly proportioned and open onto sweeping entertaining and private spaces. The expansive drawing room and adjoining dining room overlook the impeccably landscaped English garden. An additional kitchen sits off the drawing room and is serviced by a dumbwaiter that accesses the fully-equipped kitchen downstairs.

The completely renovated garden level features ceilings up to 10 1/2 feet, a massive chef's kitchen and den with a south-facing wall of French doors and an adjacent service kitchen. Top-of-the-line appliances, including Wolf, SubZero and an Amerikooler walk-in refrigerator, as well as a full pantry and oversized laundry room, are tucked discreetly out of the public view.

The parlor floor features a carefully-restored living room that runs the entire 40 feet width of the home, with original knotted wood paneling, floor-to-ceiling windows and ceiling heights up to 13 feet. A golf simulator room sits adjacent.

Five bedrooms, including the sprawling primary suite sit on the third and fourth floors. The primary suite features two dressing rooms and ensuites - one with a sauna and oversized steam shower and the other with a luxurious soaking tub. On the fourth floor, a suspended-ceiling fitness room and basketball court with a 220-inch movie screen spans over 750 square feet with 17-foot ceilings. This floor is capped by a rooftop terrace that affords iconic Manhattan skyline views.

A skylit spiral center staircase and eight fireplaces throughout are but a few of the design touches in this stylish home. Thoughtful considerations include a modernized, high-speed elevator that services all five floors; brand new, top-of-the-line A/V, mechanical and HVAC systems; and two dedicated staff rooms, each with a full bathroom. State-of-the-art security features include ballistic windows and walls, double door entry, safe room bedrooms, and cameras throughout the home.
