Historic Edward Durell Stone Townhouse
One of the most architecturally important townhouses on the Upper East Side is the Edward Durell Stone Townhouse at 130 East 64th Street. Stone renovated the house by extending its façade forward and replacing the original façade with 3 stories of floor-to-ceiling windows separated by limestone bands. Stone then covered the entire 4-story façade with a concrete grille of decorative circles and squares. The house was granted Landmark Status in 1981. In 2006 the present owner donated a façade easement to the Trust for Architectural Easements, protecting the façades from future alterations. The ground floor entry leads to a home office and rear bedroom with accesses to the garden. The loft-like Parlor floor comprises a gourmet kitchen, dining room and living room with wood burning fireplace. Beyond that is a terrace overlooking the garden. The master bedroom and library are on the 3rd floor. The 4th floor has 2 bedrooms. The finished basement offers storage and mechanical systems.
