A Robert A. M. Stern Building

20 East End

Expanding Heights at 20 East End

The high ceilings at 20 East End Avenue, ranging from 11 to 13 feet, are a part of architect Robert A.M. Stern’s grand design inspired by New York’s preeminent pre-war apartment buildings. Graciously proportioned interiors are appointed with the finest finishes and custom casements and moldings, state-of-the art Gaggenau appliances and vistas of bucolic East End Avenue, the Upper East Side, and the East River.

Those with a sharp aesthetic sensibility will also know that ceiling height, coupled with open layouts, makes any indoor design more appealing, in addition to offering more wall space for displaying one’s personal art collection. A New York Times interview on the appeal of this essential real estate luxury may have captured it best: “that ‘wow’ factor a ceiling provides is something you can’t replace.”
