Unusually Fine Private Home on E 78th St
One of a Kind Architectural Gem: Located on one of Manhattan's most coveted townhouse blocks, This 4-story, 18’9'”wide, 60’deep brownstone was originally constructed in 1871 and later transformed into a a grander more formal home in 1937, by prominent architect Harvey Stevenson, with an emphasis on entertaining and privacy. This emphasis is reflected in the large formal dining room with wood burning fireplace (1 of 4) that leads to mature North garden. The adjacent butler’s pantry and kitchen, has separate street entrance and a back staircase up to the 2 staff rooms (potential 4th bedroom) and bath. The living room has wonderful scale and a full wall of light from a floor to ceiling bay window. The three en-suite bedrooms, all with walk in closets, are located on the 3rd and 4th floors. The 4th floor culminates in a magnificent double height library which extends onto a sunny bi-level roof garden with wisteria covered pergola rounding out the over 1900 square feet of outdoor space.
