A classic residence in a classic location: that's perhaps the best way to describe the prewar building that is Philip House, located at 141 East 88th Street on the Upper East Side. As a home in the Carnegie Hill neighborhood, Philip House is particularly captivating thanks to its unique architecture and beautiful interiors. The building has 53 apartments spread over 11 floors, with each of the apartments having its interiors designed by Victoria Hagan.
The apartments at Philip House are spacious and open, with double-paned windows that allow in an abundance of natural light. The living spaces are both elegant and modern—wood-burning fireplaces coexist with programmable light fixtures here. The kitchens have a variety of features including custom oak and white lacquer cabinetry and Belgian blue-stone countertops, while the bathrooms are made up of limestone floors, Waterworks tubs and Vetri di Murano mosaic tiles.
If the homes at Philip House sound fascinating to you, wait till you hear about the amenities the building offers its residents. The rooftop has a spacious Club Room with delightful views of the city's skyline, as well as a H. M. White designed landscaped terrace. Young children can enjoy the playroom, while teenagers have a game room to themselves. Add to that a fitness center and a music practice room, and you can see why Philip House is a prime Manhattan residence.
