For decades, the name Givenchy has been synonymous with elegance, style, and fashionable flair, with the esteemed fashion house's pieces regularly seen on both modern red carpets and in classic films—particularly those starring Audrey Hepburn.
That same elegance and style are apparent in this New York home belonging to James de Givenchy, nephew of the fashion house's founder Hubert de Givenchy. James de Givenchy recently listed his apartment at 65 East 96th Street in Carnegie Hill, a highly desirable neighborhood on Manhattan's Upper East Side.
The 4-bedroom, 3.5 bath home's nine rooms have each been carefully updated and decorated with a contemporary, colorful palette of finishes, décor, and other details reflective of the family's eye for design.
Its welcoming foyer opens to an expansive, sunlit living room that is flanked by a library outfitted with custom shelving and a formal dining room.
The kitchen is a chef's dream, featuring a large center island, plenty of counter and cabinet space, polished nickel hardware, and state-of-the-art appliances, including a temperature-controlled wine fridge.
The home's private, lavish primary suite includes generous closet space, a sitting area, and a thoughtfully designed bath with dual vanities and a soaking tub.
The apartment is located in The Gatsby, a historic residential building built in 1924 that showcases the architectural design of NYC's prewar era. Residents enjoy multiple convenient amenities, including a 24-hour doorman, live-in superintendent, and a fitness room.
