Welcome to one of Carnegie Hill’s most captivating and distinctively historic properties. The upper triplex of this remarkable wooden-frame home reveals a lifestyle reminiscent of the English countryside. Nestled just off Park Avenue, this cherished house has been landmarked by the National Register of Historic Places. A picturesque four-story structure built in 1871, it was one of the last frame houses ever to be built in Manhattan.
A delightful front porch greets you as you walk up to the residence. Upon entry, high ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows grace the stunning parlor level which features a large and inviting living room with wood-burning fireplace, and an airy dining room. Also on this floor is a beautiful and comforting eat-in kitchen, completely updated with overhead lighting, a center island and a heart-warming traditional Aga cast iron oven, which reminds one of being in an English country manor.
Pocket doors divide the kitchen from the dining room, which may be retracted to offer an open, floor-through layout of the entire parlor level. High ceilings with crown moldings and hardwood floors, all original, are featured throughout.
Off the eat-in kitchen at the rear of the house, a lovely south-facing balcony overlooks a beautifully landscaped garden. An oasis of calm and privacy in the big city, cheerful natural light pours through in abundance all year round.
Upstairs on the second level, the master bedroom is particularly bright, peaceful and secluded, looking over the garden from floor-to-ceiling French doors, which lead to another private balcony. The en suite bathroom is adorned with London tile and Barber Wilson fixtures, and there is also a carefully designed and brand new walk-in closet. The two bedrooms and bathrooms on the third and top level feel wonderfully tucked away from the main areas of the home.
This is truly one of New York's most unique and remarkable properties, and a rare opportunity to live in a stunning and historic residence. Showings will begin September 15th.
