Reminiscent of a London townhouse, this 26-room classic Georgian residence is notable for its extraordinary 57-foot width, making it one of the widest houses on the Upper East side, its 3000 sq. ft. garden bordered by tall trees, rhododendron and roses, and its double-car garage, another Upper East Side rarity. The 4-story townhouse has approximately 12,000 sq. ft. above grade, and offers a 38' by 22' drawing room with tall south windows overlooking the garden, a paneled dining room off the garden terrace, intimate library, 13 bedrooms, 11' ceilings, 9 fireplaces, Georgian staircase, elevator, and future rooftop garden. A portion of the townhouse, which now functions as a house with its own entry, may be used as additional quarters. The houses are easily returned to one grand house. Beautifully maintained by the same family for more than half a century, this is a rare opportunity to own a home for all seasons, and to return to the gracious lifestyle and entertaining of a past era.
