This 20 foot wide townhouse is located on one of the most charming tree-lined landmarked streets on the East Side. The Historic Treadwell Farm District is a sanctuary of four city blocks comprised of lovingly cared for three, four and five story homes each with its own beautiful garden. This classic house, which was designed by architect William Morris Hunt, was built in the mid 1800's. 226 East 62nd has been divided into two two-bedroom duplex apartments but is easily combined to a single-family house once again. The lower duplex is entered at street level. Presently there is a large, windowed, eat-in kitchen, a half bath, open dining room and a very gracious 18'x25' sun filled southern living room with a wood burning fireplace which leads to an enormous 20'x39' south garden. This very special garden's rear wall was part of a church built in the 1800's providing a most charming backdrop for your gardener to work with to create your own Shangri La. Upstairs, the Master bedroom has a large bathroom and a luxurious windowed dressing room. There is also a large second bedroom and bath on this floor of the garden duplex. The Upper Duplex's first floor has a generous living room with a wood-burning fireplace and a setback 18' x 10' terrace overlooking the charming gardens of all the Treadwell's Farm buildings. A large dining room and a windowed kitchen complete the floor. Upstairs there are 2 bedrooms, one with stunning wood paneling and a wood-burning fireplace and 2 Baths (both with skylights). A windowed laundry and storage room which could be a third bedroom, complete the floor. The upstairs tenant will be vacating in August. The house has four wood-burning fireplaces each with a beautiful antique mantle. Three skylights let the sun shine in. Additional air rights are available to build either into the garden or possibly a setback room and terrace on top of the upper duplex. Create a true jewel on this wonderful block. SHOWINGS BEGIN THURSDAY MAY 2nd.
