Description

Built in 1869 and designed by Joseph H. Freedlander, this extraordinary 20' wide neo-Federal style townhouse is located on one of the most coveted tree-lined blocks on the Upper East Side, steps from Central Park between Madison and Fifth Avenues. The sun-flooded five-story home is complete with an extraordinary glass-enclosed 46' long lap pool and hot tub. In addition, there is a wood-paneled elevator which accommodates every floor, a beautiful garden and fabulous roof-deck. FIRST LEVEL: Enter an elegant black and white marble gallery with a stately winding staircase. Also in the entry gallery is a stylish powder room and elevator. Beyond, there is a modern eat-in kitchen equipped with an abundance of storage, pantry and top-of-the-line appliances. The kitchen flows into an oversized sun-drenched den with a skylight and overlooks a beautiful, landscaped garden. SECOND LEVEL: The grand staircase leads to a wide and gracious landing separating the living and dining rooms. The majestic front facing 32-foot living room has large, beautiful windows overlooking scenic 74th Street, as well as a wet bar and full bath--All perfect for entertaining. The distinguished formal dining room features a wood-burning fireplace and also has prominent windows. THIRD LEVEL: The entire third floor embodies an exquisite and perfectly appointed primary bedroom suite featuring a wood burning fireplace, dressing area, closets galore and a huge luxurious windowed bath. FOURTH LEVEL: The fourth floor is comprised of two extraordinarily spacious and sunny bedrooms, each with large walk-in closets and ensuite baths. There is also a laundry room on this floor. FIFTH LEVEL: The fifth floor has been used as a large office and assistant suite, equipped with a kitchenette. This area could easily convert to a bedroom, as it also has a full bath. There is an adjacent two-bedroom suite with a kitchen and full bath as well which could be staff or children's quarters, or two additional bedrooms. There are stairs leading to the roof terrace which encompasses the greater part of the roof area and is magnificent for entertaining. LOWER LEVEL: The lower level of the house is accessed off the entrance gallery where stairs lead down to a tremendous limestone heated lap pool, hot tub, lounge area, gym and storage closets. CELLAR: One floor below is the cellar which features a marvelous temperature-controlled wine cellar, mechanical and storage areas. This totally unique house has central air conditioning, gas heating, and a sound and security system. It encompasses approximately 7,275 interior square feet, a 2,000 sq. ft. lower/pool level and a 900 sq. ft. cellar. The garden and roof deck provide approximately 1,200 square feet of outdoor space. It should not be missed!
