110 East 70th Street
On what is widely considered to be the most beautiful and desirable residential block in Manhattan, this elevatored 20' house is a residence of enormous charm. Most unusually for a city townhouse, it is flooded with light from windows on all four sides, with those to the east enjoying views of neighboring gardens. Its elegant five story red brick and limestone beaux-arts facade leads to a 57' deep main interior replete with a gorgeous staircase and other original architectural detail; to the rear a three story extension wraps around a private garden and terrace. With a large living room, formal dining room, superb new kitchen, five woodburning fireplaces, seven bedrooms, six full and four half bathrooms, this is a delightful house that is ideally scaled both for formal entertaining and for spacious yet intimate, family living. It has meticulously maintained mechanical and security systems, including five-zone central air and gas heat. Please call for color brochure.
