Recapture a moment in New York's history by restoring this grand mansion to its intended place as an architectural icon. Commissioned as a replacement of two adjacent rowhouses by Frederic Grosvenor and Ethel M. Goodridge, this 36-foot wide mansion was rebuilt in 1911 in the neo-Georgian style. The handsome brick fa?ade with limestone cornice and trim is accentuated by three gracious archways framing the portico with two arched windows and an impressive wrought iron and glass entrance. Built by Foster, Gade & Graham, it is replete with period details including splayed lintels, decorative stone foliate panels and cornices with modillions. Currently configured as professional space, studios and one bedrooms, it comprises in excess of 16,600 sf (including the English Basement but excluding sub-cellar). The whole building is DELIVERED VACANT and is an ideal conversion to a glorious single family residence. It features lofty ceilings ranging from 10-14 ft, multiple wood burning fireplaces, a side and rear garden, a second floor terrace, an elevator servicing all floors, and dramatic windows facing north, south and east.
Upper East Side
Upper East, from 59th Street to 110th Street, from the East River to Fifth Avenue, with Sutton Place and Carnegie Hill as separate enclaves.
The Upper East Side historically exemplifies serious landmark-type apartments but remains a neighborhood where a co-op or condo can be found for everyone. Strict co-ops (some with incredible Central Park views) continue to prevail in the Upper East Side from Park to Fifth Avenues, but there are plenty of studios, one- and two-bedroom condos, and rentals on the Upper East Side as well. Newer luxury condo buildings include the Laurel, with a world-class gym that would satisfy any athlete, the Lucida, and the Brompton.
