40 East 67th Street
New York, NY 10065
This gorgeous, sun-flooded, renovated 20’ wide townhouse enjoys a prime location on East 67th Street between Park & Madison Avenues, the very heart of this fashionable district. It has one of the prettiest, south-facing gardens to be found on the Upper East Side. There is a handsome facade and views north to stately mansions across the street, with convenient access through two entrances: one leading to the kitchen and the other through a marble vestibule. An elevator and 2 staircases allow for convenient access to the upper floors. There are 4 bedrooms, 3 full baths and 2 powder rooms. Original restored details abound; 6 wood-burning fireplaces add to the allure of this late 19th century home.
On the garden level, there is an eat-in kitchen, butler’s pantry, powder room & formal dining room with wood-burning fireplace and French doors that open to a lush and quiet garden. Access upstairs from the kitchen to a large office is made convenient through a side stair.
On the second floor, tall double-hung sash windows bathe the elegant, square living room in southern light. Ceiling heights soar to 12’ and a wood-burning fireplace is the focal point of the room. Outside the large office is a charming sitting area.
The master bedroom on the 3rd floor is cheerful and sunny; a bay window with window seat is a romantic complement providing views of leafy trees and the planted garden. A large five fixture master bath and a walk-in closet are additional features. The master suite is enhanced by a wood-paneled library lined with bookshelves and graced with 11’6” ceilings, wood-burning fireplace and adjacent bar.
On the 4th floor, there are 3 bedrooms, two with wood-burning fireplaces and en suite baths. Ceiling heights remain high at 10’6” and exposures afford lovely tree-lined views north & south. An original skylight adds light to this exceptionally bright home.
The basement has laundry, abundant storage, including cedar closet & wine storage.
