Beckford House & Tower – two complementary residential buildings developed by Icon Realty Management, with sales led by Douglas Elliman Development Marketing – have reached 97 percent sold on the Upper East Side. The milestone marks the sellout of Beckford House, the boutique condominium at 301 East 80th Street, with three stunning penthouse residences available at Beckford Tower at 301 East 81st Street.

The success of Beckford House & Tower underscores the timeless appeal of classic architecture on the Upper East Side. The transformative development by

award-winning design firm Studio Sofield has created unparalleled craftsmanship with grand living spaces and old-world elegance in the city, and has forever changed this corner of the coveted Upper East Side. Sales at Beckford House & Tower have also consistently set the pace for the market and have illuminated the desire for larger, more traditional private residences among sophisticated buyers.

“Beckford House & Tower are the perfect blend of classic and contemporary, and feature expansive floor plans and finishes that you rarely see in new developments,” said Todd Cohen, a principal at Icon Realty Management. “We felt this concept would resonate well with buyers on the Upper East Side, and the swift sellout of Beckford House tells us that the market was not only ready, but eager for a project that combines these sensibilities.”

 The final listings on the market at Beckford House & Tower are also the development’s finest. They are the three marquee penthouses at Beckford Tower designed by Studio Sofield to reinterpret classical architectural for modern living. Just completed and now available to be seen by appointment, Penthouse 29, listed for $29 million, is an extraordinary 6,522-square-foot home with six bedrooms, six-and-a-half bathrooms and 193 square feet of private outdoor space. Penthouse 30, listed for $30 million, spans 5,452 square feet and offers six bedrooms, seven-and-a- half bathrooms and three private terraces totaling 893 square feet. The 4,141-square-foot Penthouse 31, priced at $20 million, crowns the top of the tower with four bedrooms, five-and-a-half bathrooms, and three private terraces totaling 634 square feet. All the penthouses are move-in ready and feature panoramic views from Central Park to the East River and Midtown Manhattan.

Balancing grand scale and proportions, the Beckford Tower penthouses feature private elevator entries that lead into gracious entry foyers and galleries. The homes showcase extraordinary light-filled living spaces with

13’+ ceilings and large windows, setback private terraces with breathtaking views that overlook the city and Central Park, and separate Christopher Peacock-design eat-in kitchens with adjoining breakfast rooms. The spacious corner primary bedroom suites include private terraces, generous dressing rooms and fully equipped wet bars, while primary bathrooms boast Statuary marble countertops and walls, and flooring with a Versilia accent border and Statuary marble mosaic field.

 “We are proud to offer penthouses that celebrate the traditions of classical architecture and return grandeur to New York apartments,” said Terrence Lowenberg, a principal at Icon Realty Management. “Studio Sofield has ushered in a second Golden Age of architecture with this project, and the penthouse collection at Beckford Tower exemplifies this design vision. These exclusive homes feature extraordinary proportions, gracious outdoor space, as well as panoramic views that overlook the Upper East Side neighborhood, Central Park, and the East River. Few buildings

 in the area have combined classic design with grand living in this way. This is modern Upper East Side living at its finest.”

 “They are the penthouses that all other Upper East Side penthouses aspire to be,” said William Sofield, the founder and principal of Studio Sofield. Residents have access to the highly anticipated collection of amenities at Beckford Tower, which are located on the first floor and two lower levels of the building. Residents can experience over 17,000 square feet of private club-like spaces including an elegant reception room and library; an exclusive piano bar and lounge that looks and feels like a private members club; a fully equipped game room; a children’s playroom designed by Roto; and an upscale party room featuring brass finishes, a luxurious, warm color palette and an adjoined catering kitchen for convenience. Beckford Tower also touts many wellness amenities from a double-height basketball half-court and fitness center to yoga and training studios and a 65-foot indoor swimming pool. The Art Deco-inspired pool area, complete with a hot tub, relaxation area, steam room and changing rooms, is artfully designed by Studio Sofield with a glass ceiling, ornate metal detailing, potted palms and a custom glass mosaic wall mural.
