In 1913, Julius Goldman, son of Goldman Sachs co-founder Marcus Goldman, commissioned architect Herbert M. Baer to design 132 East 70th Street. Baer well understood the refined and understated “modern” sensibility of the elite. The once favored Beaux arts architecture of the Gilded Age had grown out of favor. Andrew Carnegie and some of his renowned contemporaries had created an appreciation for the Neo-Georgian style. The Goldman home beautifully displays the elegant yet restrained features of this style. The 20 ft wide, 7,224 sq ft home with its rusticated limestone base is accented with a gracious arched entrance, flanked by a service door and window.

Above the entrance floor are 3 stories of stately red brick. The home is capped on the 5th floor with a balustrade parapet, a Mansard roof and two elaborate Dormers. In its state of the art fashion, the home boasts an elevator.

While currently being used as a professional office space today, the configuration of the home is original to the 12 room, 6 Bedroom, 5 Bathroom and 2 fireplace layout. The 1st Floor offers an elegant Entry Foyer which visually features a dramatic staircase. The rear of the first floor would feature a Kitchen/Family room with access to a rear garden. The 2nd Floor offers soaring ceiling heights for the Dining Room and Living Rooms.

The Master Floor, offers a Bedroom and Study or 2 Bedrooms. The 4th Floor and 5th Floor both have two Bedrooms. The elevator services the 1st through 5th floors. The home is zoned for commercial and residential use and has additional FAR for potential use.

East 70th Street between Park and Lexington Avenues is at the crest of Lenox Hill. While subtle, the wider than usual setbacks offer a more open and gracious feeling. Accordingly this block has more than its fair share of notable homes and architecture, most well-known would be the Mellon residence.

This famed block was named “probably New York City’s most beautiful block” by Fortune Magazine.
