Property Description

Perfectly located on a serene Upper East Side street, this charming neo-Grec style home is generously configured for entertaining as well as for comfortable day-to-day living. With multiple living spaces, four bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms, the house spans four stories plus a cellar and is approximately 4,282 square feet above grade. Most rooms take advantage of the full width of the house and include exceptional ceiling heights throughout, reaching over 19’ on the fourth floor. Through a gated entrance, the garden level opens to an entry hall and adjacent breakfast room that connects to an expansive kitchen that can be closed off with a sliding wood panelled wall. The kitchen features custom wooden cabinetry, Calacatta gold Silestone quartz counters and backsplash, polished black granite floor tile, two ranges and stainless steel appliances including a dishwasher. A dining room with herringbone floors sits at the rear of the home and includes an adjacent windowed storage room and access to the paved garden, a city oasis shaded by neighboring trees. A full bathroom completes the floor. With ceiling heights of over 11’, the parlor level includes both front and rear formal sitting rooms spanning the full width of the house. The rear sitting room features intricate millwork and wood panelling imported from Scotland, a wood burning fireplace with an ornate limestone mantel, and an adjoining windowed study. The front library includes french silk fabric wallpaper and an exposed brick wall. An adjacent wet bar and powder room complete the floor. The third floor consists of a primary bedroom suite located at the rear of the home, featuring a wood-burning fireplace, an en-suite windowed bathroom and a walk-in closet. On the front of the home sits a guest bedroom with a dressing area and built-in vanity, an en-suite bathroom and a bay window overlooking 64th Street. The fourth floor contains two additional bedrooms with wood-burning fireplaces, a full bath, kitchenette, and a double height sitting room with ceilings soaring over 19’. Central AC, a centralized humidifier and air purifier, and washer dryer in the cellar complete the home. Built in 1878 by the architect James E. Ware, 128 East 64th Street was originally constructed for the developer Richard Hennessey as one of a row of four townhouses (Nos. 128-134). A special offering in the coveted landmarked Upper East Side Historic District, the house is moments from Central Park, numerous subway lines and the extensive shopping and dining options of the neighborhood.

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.
