Just off Fifth Avenue, 2 East 78th Street is a renovated and impeccably-maintained single-family house presenting a myriad of possibilities.
Currently serving as the headquarters for a private foundation, the residence has been impeccably redesigned by Keenen/Riley. 2 East 78th Street's current zoning (R10) allows for all of the following uses: Residential, Live/Work, Community Facility (including Nonprofit, Educational, Medical, Governmental), and its current configuration could easily be adapted to suit the new owner's needs.
Each of the four floors has a pleasingly-proportioned, almost square plan and a modern design sensibility. The garden floor, currently a stainless-steel-clad Kitchen, opens to a small terrace with a planting bed. Above, the rooms are open-plan and have pretty treetop views onto East 78th Street and the gorgeous limestone façade of the James B. Duke Mansion.
Built in 1925 and exceptionally situated on a beautiful, tree-lined street moments from Central Park, 2 East 78th Street's stellar locale and outlooks are further enhanced by the very attractive and architecturally-significant neighboring buildings.
