Property Description

Very rare offering of a stunning duplex located in a stately 20 foot wide townhouse on one the most beautiful tree lined blocks on the Upper East Side.

This townhouse is made up of two distinct units. The unit offered for sale is the upper duplex, which consists of floors three and four. The new owner will take title to this property in the form of a simple tenancy- in- common agreement.

The third floor entrance opens to grand entertaining spaces which include an elegant living room with soaring ceilings and a beautiful wood burning fireplace. One of the most gorgeous landscaped terraces on the UES highlights the space. The 223 square foot beautifully planted terrace offers ample, inviting room for magical dinner parties or just relaxing while overlooking the serene gardens of neighboring townhouses. There is even a retractable awning for shade and privacy. This floor also includes a grand dining room/library, also with elegant moldings, and another wood burning fireplace. There is a well-appointed gleaming white kitchen, as well as a powder room on this floor

Up the staircase on the fourth floor is the large and serene primary bedroom with a tray ceiling and three sets of windows overlooking the terrace and gardens of the surrounding townhomes. The en-suite master bathroom is sun filled from a skylight and features a bidet, a large soaking bathtub, and a walk-in shower which can also be accessed on the other side through the second bedroom's en-suite bathroom. The spacious second bedroom overlooks 64th Street and is outfitted with built-in bookshelves and a wood burning fireplace. This floor also has a large dressing room, which could serve as a home office. There is W/D on this floor as well.

This exceptionally rare residence is located in the heart of the Upper East Side and has much to offer: gorgeous outdoor space, elegant prewar living, privacy, and proximity to all the splendid benefits and attractions of Madison Avenue, Central Park, and the Upper East Side.

Upper East Side | Manhattan

Quick Profile

Exuding a cosmopolitan, refined air that is reminiscent of Paris or other European cities, the Upper East Side (the UES, to local cognoscenti) has a reputation as being a bastion of wealth and privilege. Even though it was built by American “royalty” families like the Vanderbilts, Roosevelts, Kennedys, Carnegies and Rockefellers, whose elaborate mansions once anchored Fifth Avenue, there are affordable housing options throughout the neighborhood. The further east you move, away from Central Park and the more commercial avenues, the more likely you are to find quiet, tree-lined streets with historic townhouses and brownstones. Keep your eye out for reasonably priced apartments in pre-war low-rise and even a few high-rise buildings.

With abundant, beautifully landscaped green spaces, including the oasis of Central Park acting like a backyard, the area is quiet and lushly green. You can relax and unwind in John Jay Park, Carl Schurz Park or take a stroll along the East River Promenade. The whole neighborhood seems isolated from the workaday chaos of the city at large. Add to that the history of the neighborhood and the abundance of cultural institutions, and you have a uniquely welcoming neighborhood.

Known for its abundance of high-end retail shopping, especially on Madison Avenue, the Upper East Side is host to the Barneys New York flagship department store. Here you can find upscale goods, fashion and home decor items. You will also find the edgy runway-inspired Alexander McQueen collections. If you are dying to treat your feet to red-soled opulence, be sure to visit the Christian Louboutin boutique. These are only a small sampling of this high-end shopper’s paradise that features everything from designer boutiques that offer the ultimate in haute couture to resale shops where you can find last season’s best on sale at hefty discounts .

There are many unique dining experiences, from fine dining to the casual bite-on-the-go, awaiting you in the UES. Sushi is going through a renaissance in the city, and the best omakase-style sushi can be found at Sasabune on E 73rd Street. Omakase sushi means that you leave the choice of ingredients, preparation method and presentation to the chef. Elegant French cuisine can be experienced at JoJo, E 64th Street, housed in gorgeous townhouse. Just for fun, visit the Lexington Candy Shop on Lexington Avenue, to get a taste of an old-fashioned soda fountain.
