A Truly Distinctive and Rarely Found Townhouse
This beautiful Roman brick and limestone 20' townhouse was originally built in 1872 by Christopher Keyes according to the designs of John Sexton and part of 11 row houses which extended from just east of The Union Club all the way to Lexington Avenue. While retaining many of its original details, this magnificent and light-filled property is in excellent condition and offers 8000 square feet of townhouse living in a unique and coveted layout. The grand living room, dining room and kitchen are all located on the parlor floor, creating a 90 ft expanse with 12 ft ceilings and north, south and east exposures. The floor above is shared by an impressive library, which still retains its beautiful original wood paneling, and a large master suite. The configuration of all the public rooms and master bedroom existing on just two floors creates a luxury and ease in townhouse living rarely found in such a grand-scaled house.The two top floors are home to five additional sunny bedrooms, an enormous sky-lit game room, and a terrace which can be expanded to create 450 square feet of outdoor space.Other highlights of this distinctive and continually upgraded property include an elevator which runs from the basement to the top floor, central air-conditioning, six fireplaces, high ceilings throughout, and a seldom found ground level caretakers' apartment.*Please note that the tax information provided is based on the 2018 property assessment.
