Property Description

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.

Carnegie Hill | Manhattan

Quick Profile

Carnegie Hill is a small neighborhood at the northern tip of the Upper East Side that borders Central Park. It is steeped in history, great wealth, architecture and culture. It is known for its world-class museums and its rows of historic mansions. Nothing much changes here as the entire area is landmarked, preventing the proliferation of high-rise developments. Thus the buildings stay a human scale, the sky is aplenty and the neighborhood kind of feels like a small town to its long time residents.

The name Carnegie Hill is derived from the industrial magnate Andrew Carnegie, when Carnegie decided to build himself a mansion at 91st Street and Fifth Avenue….

Carnegie Hill is a family neighborhood with old fashioned upper crust money. The mid-rise co-ops that line the avenues are among the most prestigious addresses in the city. The avenues are lined with small restaurants, boutique shops

The residential towers that have proliferated on the eastside of Third Avenue in the East 90s simply do not exist between Lexington and Fifth.
