Off Park Avenue and across the street from the Charles Dana Gibson townhouse designed by renowned architect, Stanford White, this quintessential New York brownstone built circa 1899, is located on one of the most architecturally significant blocks on the Upper East Side, with facades ranging from Neo-Georgian to Arts and Crafts. The interior of the townhouse includes two beautiful “wow” factors, the extraordinarily high ceilings, 12 ft. on the parlor floor, and over 10 ft. on the third and fourth floors, and five lovely bay windows, one overlooking the superb facades of the street and four overlooking the 33 ft. south garden with tall trees. The townhouse is configured with a 25 ft. living room with bay window overlooking the south garden, four large bedrooms, kitchen, 4 baths, and 3 powder rooms. Both bedrooms on the third floor have bay windows, including the master bedroom, and there are two bedrooms on the fourth floor, one with bay window overlooking the garden. This wonderfully sunny townhouse retains many of its historic characteristics, including the graceful wrought iron fence surrounding the front garden, and the wrought iron railing up the stairs to the entry of the townhouse. Original interior characteristics include moldings, lovely ceiling medallions and 6 fireplaces. Presently, the garden floor is configured as a doctor’s office, but can be easily changed back into the kitchen, and a dining room overlooking the garden. However, architects, attorneys, doctors, etc., can enjoy a live/work lifestyle as presently configured, or the space can be rented. Annual taxes are approximately $53,000. Family life is a charm in this townhouse, close to Central Park and all Upper East Side private schools, as well as some of the best restaurants and patisseries in New York. And there is Carrie Bradshaw’s mythical townhouse one block away, on a street with exceptional carriage houses. This is one of the loveliest neighborhoods in the city. Photos are virtually staged.
