Located off Park Avenue, this rare super wide 35 ft. Neo Georgian townhouse with approximately 12,250 sq. ft., 12 ft. ceilings, 6 fireplaces, over 5 bedrooms, and enchanting 35 ft. wide garden, is an extraordinary example of the renowned architect, Charles A. Platt (1861-1933), whose New York firm dominated the general development of American architecture in the early 20th century, and whose Georgian style mansions and country houses were regarded as the finest American examples of their genre. Built in 1905, the townhouse is imbued with Platt’s original details including the paneling, fireplace mantel, 12’ beamed ceiling and herringbone floor in the 35 ft. drawing room on the second floor. Across the landing the dining room overlooks the extraordinarily wide garden through large bay windows. The upstairs offers over 5 sunny large bedrooms, varyingly voluminous and charming. The flexible floor plan of the townhouse offers a first floor reception room off the formal entry with lovely wide staircase, and paneled rear library with huge fireplace, and windows overlooking the garden. A sleek Bakes & Kropp kitchen on the garden floor leads to a lush 35’ wide Chinese Garden. A family room or staff room with a separate entrance completes the floor. The roof may become a large rooftop garden with views of downtown New York, lovely architectural views of a nearby church and charming views of townhouse gardens. This is a townhouse offering an exquisitely comfortable family life as well as an exciting entertaining style. In addition to a private residence, the zoning allows for a philanthropic or non-profit institution with or without sleeping accommodations, a museum or non-commercial art gallery.
