Remarkable 'Block Beautiful' Townhouse
140 East 19th Street
New York, NY 10003
This remarkable 23.5 foot wide brownstone is ideally situated on one of the most beautiful blocks in New York. 140 East 19th Street is a wide and deep townhouse on the quiet tree-lined block off Gramercy Park admiringly referred to as "Block Beautiful.”
Built in the 1850s and remodeled in 1919 by Sterner and Wolfe, the centerpiece of this gracious home is a spectacular 20-foot high Candela-built living room. A wall of windows face the private and secluded south-facing garden, and a mezzanine study overlooks this dramatic living space.
5 bedrooms, 4 1/2 baths, a charming eat-in kitchen, wood burning fireplaces, a sky-lit writing alcove and a recording studio in the finished basement render this 5,760 square foot property a magical family home. An ample elevator provides direct access to every floor.
Built 60 feet deep on a 92 foot lot, this truly special property offers a rare opportunity to create a one-of-a-kind residence.
