About this property
Lavish Beaux-Arts Style Townhouse
7 East 88th Street is one of three townhomes in a row, originally built in 1903 by architects James R. Turner and William G. Killian. Located near the middle of the block, 5, 7 and 9 East 88th Street have frontages between 24.5 feet to 27.5 feet. Given their size, individuality of design and architectural grandeur, the houses are elaborate examples of the finest in Beaux-Arts design.
The elegant limestone townhouse with an elevator to all levels affords 25’ of width and approximately 10,110 square feet of interior space and additional 2,125 square feet of exterior space between the tranquil garden and roof terrace with stunning Central Park Views.
This five story landmarked townhome has a central entrance with two beautiful paneled columns at the front entry, featuring the original wrought-iron grille on the front door including two-story oriel with square-headed openings separated by paneled piers and curved sides above.
Upon entry, you are welcomed by an impressive foyer with a beautiful staircase and the elevator that services all floors. The generous size rooms are made even more spectacular by the outstanding ceiling heights, eight wood burning fireplaces with original details, central skylight and solarium.
Currently configured with a garden level triplex, top level triplex and two simplex apartments, this home is an excellent opportunity for an immediate live-with-income scenario, a pied—terre or a trophy single conversion.
Ideally located in Carnegie Hill, steps away from Museum Mile, 7 East 88th Street is near many renowned museums, galleries, luxury designer stores and restaurants.
