Located in the Murray Hill Historic District, this beautiful Eastside brownstone was built in 1856 as a pair with the neighboring 113 East 35th Street townhouse. Listed in the District's designation report, this home was built in the Italiante style and looms over 5 stories tall. The exterior is quite unique, featuring an arched entry with French doors, a dramatic molded keystone pilaster and molded under-window panels, two-over-two sash windows and original wrought-iron décor.
Entrance is granted from the parlor or garden level, the latter featuring an eat-in kitchen with a street facing window and a grand living room fit for entertaining. Finished in hardwood and accompanied by an ornate fireplace and beamed ceiling, the garden level also offers sliding door access to the glass encased four seasons room and rear yard finished in brick pavers beyond.
Featuring a tiled double door entry foyer, the parlor level has a perfect home office space that overlooks the arched windows. On this floor, there is full bath and access to the dramatic curved banistered stairway the leads to the other levels. To the rear is a grand living space with original inlaid hardwood flooring, complemented by yet another wood burning fireplace, and massive bay window with window benches.
The third level features 10 and 14-foot ceilings, a grand master bedroom, with dramatic bay window and en-suite marble and tile bath. The bedroom features ample closet space and a walk in closet big enough to serve as a dressing room. Toward the front of the third story is a library with historic floor-to-ceiling stained wood French doors with original brass hardware.
The fourth floor offers another bedroom and a massive ballroom-esque space, nearly 60 feet deep with access to a rear facing terra cotta terrace.
Continuing upward, you will find a skylight, allowing light to penetrate the stairwell to the first floor. There is a bedroom to the front and rear, a full and half bath, and walk-in closet.
The elevator runs from the parlor level to the fourth floor.
A special feature of this building is the gas and electric service. Separated into two zones, this distinction offers a fantastic opportunity to live in one portion of the residence while using the other as an income producing rental property.
