118 East 64th Street
For those in search of something special, this four story brownstone on one of the city's finest townhouse blocks offers a perfect alternative to apartment life. It combines the best of new and old, with all-new systems and central HVAC throughout. Its architectural detail, including five marble fireplaces, is intact and thoroughly restored. The parlor floor has 13.5 ft. ceiling, a splendid mahogany staircase and fireplace, superb plasterwork, imposing doors with original hardware, and sparkling etched and stained glass. The ground floor is an open family room with its own separate street entrance and a south facing yard laid out as a delightful grassy play area - sandbox included. Designed by James E. Ware in 1877 as one of a pair of Italianate houses (Ware's many other works include parts of fabled Mohonk Mountain House), this magical 4-bedroom house combines the charm typical of its scale with a sense of space that belies its actual size. 118 East 64th offers a rare opportunity to live on an extremely prestigious block!
