Historic five-story townhouse that has served, since 1991, as the residence of the Permanent Representative of Italy to the United Nations.
Among the most remarkable properties on the market between Fifth and Madison Avenues in the East 70’s on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, this stunning neo-Georgian townhouse of red brick with limestone trim is just off Central Park and features four master bedroom suites, two staff rooms, four full bathrooms, and four half-baths across five floors of living space and an above-ground basement leading to a patio.
16 East 76th Street is a classic 19-foot-wide townhouse commissioned in 1880 by the property owner William Noble. In 1902 the house underwent its first great renovation on the initiative of the prominent New Yorker Moncure Robinson, who implemented the current design. A leading figure of international high society, he selected the New York City architectural firm Hoppin & Koen, to design a new interior and refashion the façade. Moncure Robinson held ownership of the house from 1902 to 1923, when it passed into the hands of Mabel Simmons, the wife of John Packwood Tilden of Brooklyn, a founding member of the General Society of Mayflower Descendants. She remained in residence until her death in the late 1960’s.
Throughout the years, the home has served as a residence to a number of eminent New Yorkers. These included Calvin Klein, who sold the townhouse to the Italian Republic in 1991.
