Introducing this gut-renovated late-19th century neo-Grec masterpiece luxuriously reimagined for the modern age. Spanning approximately 9,000 square feet and ideally situated on a 22 x 100-foot lot between Park and Madison Avenues, this turn-key brownstone boasts 6 bedrooms, 6 full-bathrooms, 3 half-bathrooms, and a trio of private outdoor spaces. This six-story townhouse was originally built in 1885-86 and resides within the Upper East Side Historic District a block from Central Park. Its enchanting neo-Grec brownstone facade beckons, while interiors are airy, spacious, and saturated with natural light.

On the GARDEN FLOOR, a welcoming entry vestibule with French doors flows into a large gallery & library with built-in bookshelves and a wood-burning/gas fireplace. A central hall has a walk-in coat closet and powder room and leads into an eat-in kitchen with an island, custom cabinets, quartz countertops, and high-end stainless steel appliances from Sub-Zero and Miele. Past the kitchen is a lovely garden as well as a windowed office with a dumb waiter and stairs leading up to a butler's pantry and dining room on the next floor. The PARLOUR FLOOR is perfect for entertaining and has formal living and dining rooms with wood-burning/gas fireplaces.
