Located on the Upper East Side’s most prestigious and sought-after blocks, this four-bedroom and four-and-a-half-bathroom homestead is rich in history yet perfectly attuned to a modern living
This venerable 19-foot-wide home rises four stories with an iconic redbrick façade with Italianate and Ruskinian Gothic details, arched windows, and a Gothic bay window topped with a Juliet balcony. The home features five wood-burning fireplaces, a gated front garden, a conservatory, and a spacious backyard with stone pavers, lush plantings, and ivy-strewn fencing.
On the first level is a welcoming parlor with gallery-style walls and a wood-burning fireplace with its original wood-carved surround. Further in is a central staircase with an oculus, and beyond that is a stately library with built-in shelves and wall niches, impeccable woodwork, and a fireplace. The library has access to a double-height conservatory with a regal staircase that leads to the lower levels and the backyard.
The garden level has a separate entrance and contains a tranquil office, powder room, eat-in kitchen, formal dining room, and laundry room with a utility sink, storage, and a side-by-side washer/dryer. The dining room has a fireplace and access to the conservatory, while the kitchen is adorned with an eat-in island, marble and stainless steel countertops, a marble backsplash, high-end stainless steel appliances, and a dumb-waiter that connects to every level of the home.
All four bedrooms sit on the second and third levels. The primary suite occupies the entire second level. It features a fireplace sleeping chamber, ample closet space, walk-through couples’ en-suite bathrooms, and a private garden-facing study that can also be used as a guest bedroom. The remaining bedrooms offer great flexibility and have full en-suite bathrooms.
