211 East 62nd. A Landmark Residence Touched by History.
Situated in the exclusive Treadwell Farm Historic District in Lenox Hill, this exceptional 4-bedroom, 5-bathroom townhome offers a modern luxury lifestyle set against the grandeur and promise of ages gone by. Its storybook past includes being the former residence of Eleanor Roosevelt and playing host to foreign dignitaries, political functions, celebrity trunk shows, and non-profit events.
Built in 1873 and recently renovated by Maria Masi, this 19-foot-wide townhome rises five stories with a gorgeous redbrick façade. An elevator serves every floor, and a trio of private outdoor spaces include a classical courtyard garden, a terrace, and a rooftop deck with a dog run and skyline views.
On the FIRST floor, a resplendent verde marble foyer with a brass entry gate and chandelier flows into an inviting reception hall with a powder room and custom printed wall panels depicting a 17th century Italian landscape. Just beyond that is a regal living room with verde marble floors and fireplace, mahogany wood paneling, contemporary coffered ceilings, and original stained glass French doors leading out to the garden. A fully-equipped service kitchen with its own entrance completes the first floor.
A curved mahogany staircase leads up a SECOND floor with a formal den and dining room and a huge eat-in kitchen. Crema marble floors and period details run throughout. The dining room has a carved marble fireplace and an attached terrace overlooking the garden. The kitchen is adorned with stained glass windows, brass hardware, bespoke cabinetry, a large eat-in island, and high-end appliances from Trauslen, Miele, Gaggenau, and La Cornue. A convenient powder room sits just off the staircase.
The THIRD floor contains the first of two primary suites. The bedroom chamber has custom cherry cabinets and wall paneling and a wall of built-in closets and shelves. The bathroom has a carved marble fireplace, a windowed marble double vanity, a water closet, a Steamist walk-in steam shower, brass towel warmers, and a vintage clawfoot cast iron jetted soaking tub. An added bonus is a cherry wood and marble wet bar.
A private set of stairs leads up to a FOURTH floor with a second primary suite with original parquet oak floors. The bedroom chamber has another carved marble fireplace, exquisite moldings and wall paneling, and dual wardrobe closets. The spacious sitting room has a marble wet bar, and the bright bathroom has a double vanity, a water closet, a Steamist walk-in steam shower, and a windowed Whirlpool soaking tub.
The FIFTH floor has two additional bedrooms with wood-burning fireplaces, original parquet floors, and private en-suites. The CELLAR contains a laundry room, a marble bathroom, and a windowed gym.
