About this property
The extraordinary opportunity to merge the zoning and tax lots of these two properties represents the ability to combine two adjacent townhouses into a single family residence greater than 33 feet wide comprising 6 floors and approximately 14,000 sf with a large rear yard.
Located just off Fifth Avenue and within the Upper East Side Historical District the subject properties were constructed by John Prague around 1878 as part of a row of 3 Neo Grec houses. The commonality of design and construction results in complementary and harmonious facades featuring large three sided Oriel window enframements and bracketed roof cornices.
Situated on the north side of arguably one of the finest streets on the UES, the southern exposure provides wonderful light through the day, and with lower buildings on 78th Street abutting the garden, the rear of the building gets wonderful air and light.
Steps from Central Park and the Metropolitan Museum, the property is close to the Mark and Carlyle Hotels as well as fine boutiques and restaurants on Madison Avenue.
The two properties have been totally gutted within providing more ability to imagine the breadth and scope of a one of a kind New York residence.
This is a Co-Exclusive.
