Description

Located on a picturesque townhouse block steps from Park Avenue on Manhattan's Upper East Side, this historic 20' wide five-story-plus-basement townhouse with authentic wood-paneled Otis elevator represents a rare opportunity to acquire a stately residence with sought-after address. The house contains three units, including a state-of-the-art medical office suite on the ground and basement levels, and two magnificent residential duplex apartments on the second through fifth floors. The office suite has a separate entrance from the street, and private access from the lower duplex for a doctor choosing to live above his practice. Each duplex apartment has a large outdoor terrace, and a sweeping original curved staircase. Other features include roughly 13' high ceilings on the parlor floor, intricate moldings, paneling, wainscoting, built-in casework, coffered ceilings, dramatic skylights, hardwood floors, tastefully renovated kitchens and bathrooms with granite countertops and professional appliances, two gas-burning fireplaces, a wood-burning fireplace, numerous decorative fireplaces with original marble mantels, and central heating and air conditioning. The total area is approximately 8,160 S.F. above grade plus approximately 1,500 S.F. below grade. The house is exquisitely maintained in move-in condition. The upper duplex and doctor's office are currently rented with short-term leases. One of eleven identical houses on the block originally designed by John Sexton in 1872 for a developer named Christopher Keyes, this house was substantially altered in 1910 by R. H. Robertson. Robertson added a neo-Georgian façade with a limestone base and Juliette balcony, detailed cornice and window surrounds, mansard roof, and copper-clad dormer windows. He designed many other prominent homes and public buildings in New York including the Park Row Building at 15 Park Row which was the tallest building in the world when completed in 1899.
