After over a century in the similar household, this Upper East Side stunner is prepared for some new blood.
Two blocks from (*115*) Park, this five-story Italianate brownstone has been occupied by the similar brood since 1907. Now, although, for the first time in 115 years, that might change, as the property is freshly listed for $13 million.
“This is one of the very best blocks on the Upper East Side, and a house in this location so rarely comes to market,” listing agent Kristi Ambrosetti of Sotheby’s International Realty informed The Post. “For those who love prewar details such as pocket doors and original woodwork throughout, this house offers all of that and more.”
Designed by the architect Charles Graham circa 1884, the roughly 5,000-square-foot townhouse at 38 East seventieth St. options six bedrooms, four-and-a-half baths and an abundance of authentic particulars which have been “painstakingly restored and maintained,” Ambrosetti added.
There are three skylights, eight fireplaces, restored authentic woodwork, crown moldings, embrasured shutters and loads of bay home windows with northern and southern exposures all through, in addition to trendy conveniences together with central air, communication and alarm programs.
The residence opens to a lobby which results in a grand parlor stage with 12-foot ceilings and a proper gallery, front room, sitting room and eating room with butler’s pantry and dumbwaiter. The kitchen is on the backyard stage, as are the breakfast room, den, powder room and a small, non-public backyard. There are two bedrooms and one tub every on the higher three ranges, and in the basement are storage, laundry and a fifty-case wine cellar.
The house is positioned inside the Upper East Side Historic District only a few blocks from the place one stool pigeon not too long ago landed in a crappy state of affairs after allegedly pooping in a condominium constructing’s pool. The defecation catastrophe is presently the topic of a lawsuit filed this month in New York State Supreme Court.
