Garden level floor-thru at 2 GPW evokes a sense of serenity that is rare in Manhattan. The other-worldly quality is apparent the moment you enter the stately 26’ wide 1849 Italianate brick townhouse. Contributing to its exclusive presence, the TH is set back; gated with a front garden that shows east to the Park. This unique 2-bedroom, 2-bath home is in wonderful condition; has all one can wish for: best location, comfortable layout, 2 working WBFP, skylight in kitchen, W/D, and a heavenly planted garden which is the full width of the apartment.
The location of Gramercy Park with its unique and enclosed pristine garden provides a sanctuary very much in sync with the aura of the landmarked historical house, 2 Gramercy Park West. The purchaser of the apt. has the extra bonus of acquiring a key to the Park.
Great and historical fact regarding 2 GPW: In 1896 the wedding reception for President Benjamin Harrison and his bride, Mrs. Mary Scott Lord Dimmick, was held in the house.
