TRIPLE MINT TOWNHOUSE ON PRIME BLOCK
Located on one of the best town house blocks on the upper east side, this historic single-family home has been newly renovated and is ready to move in. Built in 1869, and reimagined in 1899 by master builder Michael Reed, this home is a jewel. All mechanical, electrical, HVAC, plumbing and windows were recently replaced, in addition to the floors on the top 2 levels, resulting in a truly mint home which offers every modern convenience in a classic space which retains many original details.
At 20 feet wide, with a distinctive stucco facade and 2 story copper bay windows, the house stands 5 stories with a full basement and elevator which services the first through the fifth floors. This stunning home features 5 or 6 bedrooms, 4 full bathrooms and 5 half baths. Prized outdoor space includes a 12' deep entry courtyard, a newly landscaped 26' deep south-facing garden off the breakfast room, and two southern terraces (off the second-floor dining room and fourth-floor bedroom), which bring exceptional light and air into the home.
The house is accessed by 2 entrances leading to an entry gallery which leads to the cozy den area and top of the line chef's kitchen. A sun filled glass enclosed breakfast area opens to the sunny private garden. Adjacent to the family kitchen is a large prep kitchen, with one of 2 laundry areas in the house, additional storage space and another windowed powder room as well as stairs leading to a second butler's pantry.
The second floor is graced by a stunning living room with a wood-burning fireplace, soaring 12'6" ceilings, and large bay windows that that overlook 70th Street. A gracious landing connects the living room to the formal dining room with 11'9" ceilings, a terrace, and an adjacent butler's pantry that's accessible from downstairs. This level also has a powder room.
The third, or primary bedroom floor is comprised of a stunning front library with tree line views of 70th street from the bay window, a wood-burning fireplace and powder room. The quiet, south facing bedroom has large windows overlooking the garden and features 2 walk-in closets and a beautifully appointed master bath with two sinks and a stall shower.
The fourth floor is comprised of 2 bedrooms, each with 2 closets and en-suite bath, and the rear bedroom has a lovely terrace facing the garden.
The fifth floor is currently set up with a large, bright entertainment space in the front, with high ceilings, wood burning fireplace and skylight. The south side of this floor has 2 bedrooms. There is ample closet space for each room as well as a shared bath, making this an ideal location for guests or staff. There is ladder access leading to the roof.
The basement has abundant storage, double set of washer/dryers, cedar closets and a powder room.
This stunning home is a jewel to behold.
