This extremely elegant home is perfectly positioned on one of the Upper East Side's most historic and beautiful townhouse blocks. It is located in the Historic Treadwell Farm District enclave which was developed in 1815. Meticulously maintained, the impressive 5 story, 20 foot home with over 5640 square feet has grandly scaled and beautifully proportioned rooms with one of the most romantic, lush gardens in NYC! Number 237 East 61st street was constructed in 1875 by Samuel Bussell and faced with Connecticut brownstone. This storied home has been the host to some of New York's most notable guests, including politicians, diplomats and titans of banking and industry.

One enters on the garden level passing a beautifully renovated chef's eat-in kitchen complete with a fully restored original Garland stove. The breakfast room/pantry leads into the stately formal dining room with WBFP. Three sets of french doors open to the sumptuous garden beyond, setting the stage for unparalleled dinner parties.

The grand parlor floor has impressive 11 foot ceilings and boasts over 60 feet of luxurious entertaining space. The gorgeous living room alone measures almost 30 by 18 feet and has a beautiful marble fireplace and triple floor to ceiling french doors with serene townhouse garden views. The sun-flooded library also has a marble fireplace and three tall windows looking onto picturesque East 61st Street. The reception hall, next to the sweeping curved staircase, even has its own discreet wet bar.

The third floor consists of a wonderful master suite oasis with its own private terrace overlooking the trees of the surrounding gardens, an en-suite bath with large soaking tub and cedar closet, and an additional bedroom and bath which could easily be incorporated into the master suite.

The fourth floor has an additional 2 generously proportioned bedrooms and baths, and its own terrace as well. The fifth floor currently has 3 bedrooms, 2 baths and an office. The meticulous lower level houses the laundry facilities, a temperature controlled wine room, additional storage, and the mechanicals. There are 6 wood burning fireplaces, and an elevator servicing all five floors.

The annual real estate taxes are approximately $87,360.
