About this property
138 East 95th Street is a mint condition, Queen Anne style townhouse situated on a most desirable tree-lined block in the heart of Carnegie Hill. Built in 1888 by C. Abbott French & Co., this four and a half story townhouse spans approximately 3,800 square feet and has six bedrooms, six bathrooms, multiple living and entertaining spaces, a south-facing garden and a basement. In recent years this home underwent a gut renovation, during which it was completely rewired and replumbed, to combine traditional townhouse living with modern amenities.
One enters into a sleek eat-in chef’s kitchen by Poliform outfitted with top of the line, built-in appliances from Viking, Miele and Sub Zero. The kitchen also features an island with counter seating, an abundant amount of storage space and a breakfast area with a window looking out to the street. Past the kitchen, in the rear of the floor, there is a media room which is accompanied by a solarium and access to a south-facing garden with a patio and a Viking grill, a perfect space for outdoor entertaining. There is also a powder room and laundry on this floor.
The entrance on this level opens into a vestibule that leads into a gracious open living and dining area that spans close to the entire depth of the house and features an exceptionally high ceiling. The oversized window overlooking the garden in the rear allows for sunlight to fill the floor, with the bright walls perfectly offsetting the dark wood details throughout the floor for a contemporary feel. Additionally there is a private office set in the front of the floor with elegant wooden doors to close off the room. There is also a charming powder room and a working fireplace on this floor.
The third floor primary bedroom suite is peaceful and private located in the rear of the floor.
