Step back in time to the roaring twenties, an era of prosperity and boundless possibilities, as you enter this exquisite historic townhome, built in 1920 and cherished by only two families. Meticulously preserved, the original charm and character of this extraordinary residence have withstood the test of time. An exceptional opportunity awaits the next fortunate owner to restore the grandeur of this magnificent townhouse, nestled within the esteemed Upper East Side Historic District.

This distinguished 20’ five-story single-family abode spans approximately 6000 square feet of opulent interior space, complemented by a delightful garden and a finished basement complete with a new boiler.

Ground Floor: Step into the grand foyer, a prelude to the splendors that lie ahead. The foyer boasts a guest powder room, a generously-sized walk-in closet, and leads to a spacious den and a butler's pantry, complete with the original dumbwaiter, offering a glimpse into the possibilities of a resplendent chef's eat-in kitchen. The kitchen opens up to a lovely garden, while a back stairwell provides convenient access to the formal dining room one floor above and the basement below.

Parlor Floor: Ascend to the grandest level of this remarkable home, where an expansive, sun-drenched formal living room awaits, adorned with a wood-burning fireplace and an original mantel. The soaring ceilings add to the sense of grandeur. Adjacent to the living room, discover an expansive formal dining room, also equipped with a wood-burning fireplace, setting the stage for intimate family gatherings or lavish soirées. Envision the unforgettable parties you can host on this magnificent entertaining floor.

Third Floor: Dedicated entirely to the primary suite, this floor offers unparalleled luxury. An impressive south-facing library with yet another wood-burning fireplace sets the tone, leading to the primary bedroom, flooded with natural light from its ample windows. The bedroom is accompanied by a windowed ensuite bath, creating a serene oasis of relaxation.

Fourth Floor: Currently housing three bedrooms and two bathrooms, this expansive floor offers versatility and comfort. The south-facing bedroom boasts a wood-burning fireplace, an ensuite windowed bathroom, and a Juliette balcony, while the north-facing bedroom features its own ensuite windowed bathroom and a terrace that can be transformed into a tranquil outdoor retreat.

Fifth Floor: Originally designed as quarters for staff, this floor currently encompasses five small bedrooms and two windowed bathrooms. Our proposed floor plan envisions the addition of two extra bedrooms, which could alternatively serve as a den or guest room accommodating your unique needs and desires.

Additional highlights of this remarkable residence include a grand staircase, featuring separate landings on each floor and a rare third west-facing exposure. Impressive high ceilings and hardwood floors further enhance the allure, while a full-height basement houses a laundry room. We have also included a proposed floor plan, which incorporates an elevator, a wine cellar, a home gym, an additional powder room on the parlor floor, an eat-in kitchen, a laundry room, a bar, a sunroom, and so much more. This is an unparalleled opportunity to become the third owner of this historic property and bring your dream home to life.
