About the property

🌞Palatial Serenity in our Elegant Townhouse Mansion 🌞 Brownstone Garden View🌞

The Rear Library Suite sits two flights above the house’s main entry foyer and away from the street sits the Rear Library, which exudes a kind of palatial serenity, owing to its spacious size, princess-worthy netting and cream bedding around the queen sleigh bed, and an entire wall of floor-to-ceiling books. The south-facing suite located in the back of the townhouse gets lots of light through its three lace-clad windows, which overlook a garden and terrace, and the daybed certainly makes one of the more enticing nap spots you will come across. The floors, of a beautiful oak parquet, the imposing marble fireplace, and the 10' ceiling all also contribute to the expansive quality of the room. A large oriental rug, the inviting wrought iron and brass daybed, a bureau, and armoire, and a round dining table with three chairs complete the suite's furnishings. 345 ft² (32 m²). MINIMUM AGE REQUIREMENT = 10 YEARS: 1871 House is a converted 146 year old Brownstone. In that it is an historic building constructed in the year 1871 there is no elevator and all suites are accessed by our central open staircase. Regretfully, this feature (the house's unenclosed staircase) makes it unsafe for young children under 10 years of age to stay in the house.

Our charming brownstone offset on a side residential townhouse block within Manhattan’s fashionable Upper East Side and convenient to shopping and museums.
