A Circa-1899 Upper East Side Townhouse with Playful Interiors Asks $9M
The Upper East Side is home to some of the wealthiest people in the nation. And while today, neighborhoods like Tribeca and the West Village also effortlessly attract the rich and famous, the Upper East Side will always hold a certain status. For those looking to reside in the posh area, as Jennifer Lawrence and Eleanor Roosevelt have in the past, a delectable townhouse is now up for sale. The circa-1899 home with a superb mix of personality and elegance is asking $9 million.
Like many Upper East Siders, this 3,756-square-foot townhouse has an incredible sense of style. Posh yet whimsical, the interiors have fun with color and pattern while maintaining a refined air. Past the neo-traditional red brick façade, there are high ceilings, arched doorways, and vast windows waiting. Sun rays seep in and illuminate every room. The expansive spaces, recently renovated, allow for a wide range of design possibilities across five floors.
At this price point, it’s no shock that the house features envious amenities. This includes a sweeping rooftop terrace, wine storage, and a basement with a laundry room and storage space. As for the garden patio, high brick walls secure a private and quaint atmosphere to relax and dine al fresco in the summer.
With outdoor space, five bedrooms, and alluring architectural character, this is an ideal place for an affluent buyer to settle in the city. Serena Boardman of Sotheby’s International Realty holds the listing.
