Description

52 East 91st Street sits on a sunny tree-lined block in the heart of Carnegie Hill. This prime location between Park and Madison Avenues is one block from Central Park and steps from New York's top schools and museums. Built in 1885, this four-story, A.B. Ogden & Son-designed home combines turn-of-the-century details with modern day comforts. This impeccably maintained Carnegie Hill home has five bedrooms, four full bathrooms, two powder rooms and is in excellent, move-in condition. The townhouse spans approximately 4,500 square feet across four stories. There is also a 1,125 square foot basement and a 740 square foot landscaped garden. With high ceilings, crown moldings, and six fireplaces, (two are wood-burning), this townhouse easily accommodates everyday living and entertaining. Garden Level: The entrance hallway leads to a full size eat-in kitchen, with generous cabinet space and a unique bay window. The vestibule has a large coat closet, full pantry with dumbwaiter, and a powder room. The formal dining room with a wood-burning fireplace has double glass-paneled doors opening onto the south-facing garden. The garden is the perfect place to host everything from a large barbecue to an intimate dinner or festive cocktail party. The garden floor also includes a full laundry room extension complete with a second refrigerator and laundry sink. Parlor Floor: Ascend the stairs paneled with original wainscoting and arrive at the parlor floor landing and corridor with its original ribbon-patterned oak floor. The spacious gallery features a wet bar and a full bath. The front room features a library, marked by its built-in bookshelves. In the rear, the formal living room boasts twelve foot ceilings with crown moldings, oversized windows that overlook the garden, and a wood-burning fireplace. There is an extension off the living room which can serve as an additional office or study area with access to the garden below. Third Floor: The third floor has an oversized master bedroom suite with an ample walk-in closet, a second closet, an ornamental fireplace, as well as an ensuite master bath. The second bedroom is currently used as a den. This room also features an ornamental fireplace, original decorative plaster ceiling, a spacious walk-in closet and access to a terrace. There is also a large linen closet for additional storage in the hallway. Fourth Floor: The fourth floor has two full bedrooms, a third smaller bedroom, and two and a half baths. The two main bedrooms each have their own ensuite baths and ornamental fireplaces, and the hall offers an additional half bath. The fourth floor hall is flooded with natural light via an original stained glass window. Basement: There is a full basement with 8' ceilings, flexible for play and work areas, generous storage and wine storage. Other: The floor-area ratio allows for the addition of a fifth floor, roof deck, and/or rear extension. The building stands 18'4†wide with a 100' deep lot. Central air conditioning is on the first three floors of the house.
