NEW YORK/ FEBRUARY 25, 2019 (STL.News)
An Upper East Side, pre-war duplex at 895 Park Avenue returns to the market following a contemporary revival by celebrity interior design and luxury home staging firm, Interior Marketing Group (IMG). Led by Founder and President Cheryl Eisen, IMG designs luxury properties above $5M for A-list sellers and buyers including Chrissy Teigen and John Legend, Bethenny Frankel, Daniel Craig, and more. The Kleiers, listing agents of the estate, are no strangers to the world of A-list clients, either. Well-known for their appearances on HGTV’s “Selling New York,” ABC’s “Good Morning America”, and NBC’s “Regis & Kelly”, mother Michele, and sisters Samantha and Sabrina Kleier are gurus of the ultra-competitive, luxury real estate market in Manhattan. In short, the Kleier’s star power combined with IMG’s expertise in seducing luxury clientele is a match made in real estate heaven.
The 8th and 9th floor duplex estate at 895 Park Avenue seamlessly blends the coveted pre-war details of a 1930s New York City apartment with custom, contemporary design to offer potential homebuyers the ultimate embodiment of refined luxury. Ideally situated along Park Avenue, the full-service residential building offers amenities including a health club with a squash court and basketball hoop, a concierge/doorman, an attended elevator. The interior includes 6 bedrooms, 7.5 bathrooms, formal dining room, library, den, multiple wood-burning fireplaces, and laundry room. Standout pre-war details include the home’s original oak floors, 10-foot ceilings, and an heirloom, classical built-in library.
During the design process, Interior Marketing Group (IMG) teamed up with the property’s listing agents of Kleiers Residential, a prominent family-managed brokerage. Having appeared on multiple TV shows, most notably HGTV’s “Selling New York,” the Kleier family- Michele, Ian and their daughters, Sabrina and Samantha – are well-versed in the unparalleled luxury real estate market of New York City. The combined expertise of the team of celebrity brokers and the nation’s top luxury interior design and real estate marketing firm led to nothing short of a striking end result.
“An iconic, B-Line duplex hasn’t come on the market at 895 Park in almost 20 years. It was important for us to work with a designer who has a track record for bringing out the best in this type of home and understands how to attract the right buyer. We knew Cheryl and the IMG team were the only option,” said Michele Kleier, President of Kleier Residential.
With the goal of infusing light and contemporary elements into the apartment, IMG implemented their signature design with a neutral palette; low profile, modular furniture; a custom mirror wall; luxuriously layered textures and fabrics; statement light fixtures; and original artwork. “Marrying vintage, New York City architecture with modern living is one of our specialties. We like to use neutrals, custom art, and quirky accent pieces to update classic homes while still maintaining historical integrity,” said Eisen. These design components added light, warmth, and drama, ultimately creating a more open and modern feeling while simultaneously highlighting the residence’s unique pre-war architecture and features. This magnificent, Park Avenue duplex returns to the market with a price adjustment of $15M.
