Step into the warmth and charm of The Home That Built Love at 232 East 32nd Street, a stunning four-story Greek Revival-style Townhome built in the mid-19th Century with three wood-burning fireplaces and two sun-flooded south-facing outdoor spaces.

Currently designated as a two-family home, this property features two duplexes (currently connected), each w/ its own in-unit laundry, two bedrooms, two bathrooms, & private outdoor space. The flexible layout allows for easy single-family living or can be used as an owner's duplex (or triplex) with an income-producing apartment by renting out either duplex or the garden floor alone.

The coveted garden level, accessed through its own private entrance, features historic pre-war detail throughout, including exposed brick, architecturally significant archways, & a great dining area with a wood-burning fireplace & built-in banquette seating. Many great memories have been shared in this one-of-a-kind rustic-yet-modern-style dining room. This level also boasts an eat-in windowed kitchen with stainless steel Frigidaire appliances, excellent counter and cabinetry space, & a large bedroom (or den) w/ exposed brick, a Murphy bed, & floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook the south-facing garden. There is also a bonus room that houses the W/D & capacious storage, perfect for an office or additional sleeping area.

The large garden-level bedroom has exposed brick, a Murphy bed, & floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook the south-facing garden. Architecturally significant arches with custom hardwood doors. The lovely south-facing garden features a large seating area with a grill, & outdoor lighting, & overlooks a private enclave of townhouse gardens.

The grand parlor floor features a stunning entryway with beautiful exposed brick & French doors leading to an extremely rare & expansive 50-foot parlor floor with 11-foot soaring ceilings dripping with original 19th-century details. The parlor-floor bedroom, including its Juliet balcony, faces south over the garden & is tucked behind two prominent French doors w/ double transoms, allowing light to flood through the parlor throughout the day.

The third floor boasts a bright & spacious living room connected to a large south-facing deck with open-sky views overlooking magnificent mature magnolia trees. This level has 9'4" ceilings, exposed brick, built-in shelving, & a wood-burning fireplace. The northern room hosts a large eat-in kitchen w/ exceptional cabinetry & counter space, full-size appliances, a built-in desk, GE W/D, & large casement-style windows overlooking tree-and-townhouse-lined 32nd Street.

The top floor of the home hosts two oversized bedrooms w/ enough space for a king-sized bed, end tables, & extra desk space. Both rooms overlook lush treetops & have been reconfigured over the years to accommodate many sleeping arrangements. There is spacious closet space throughout, as well as a large bathroom with a deep soaking bathtub. Access to the roof is also available, with over 1700sf of air rights remaining.

In addition to all the magnificent living spaces, the home also includes an 800-sf basement that can be converted to a proper home gym, playroom, or indoor pool, or can be kept as is, a wine cellar, with tremendous additional storage.

Situated on a lovely tree-lined townhouse street in the heart of Kips Bay, this location is home to some of the best cultural institutions and finest eateries that Manhattan offers, including Rolf's German Restaurant, Norma, Hillstone, & many more.
