Single family townhouse with elevator and an intimate east-facing garden that leads through lovely gates to Sutton Garden. This Louis XVI style home was originally built in the 1860's in what is now one of the most prestigious neighborhoods in New York. Residents in this sought-after enclave have the right by membership to use the private Sutton Garden with its serene atmosphere and views to the river. The house was completely renovated in 1970 by renowned architect John D. Latimer, who provided his full attention to historical detail, engineering, authenticity and quality. A full-floor drawing room on the parlor level, with its grand expanse and sculptural feel, provides an exquisite backdrop for entertaining and display of art. The master suite, comprising the third floor, includes a sitting room, master bathroom and tall semicircular windows in the master bedroom. There are three additional bedrooms and two bathrooms on the fourth floor. The fifth floor library features double-height ceilings and a mezzanine level, as well as a terrace with views of Sutton Garden and the river. An elegant entrance gallery with powder room on the garden level leads to the formal dining room and a gourmet kitchen with separate entrance from the exterior. Semicircular doors in the dining room open to an intimate patio with access to Sutton Garden. Five wood-burning fireplaces and a finished basement with wine cellar, storage space, pantry and laundry room complete this special home.

Sutton Place is a little enclave that runs from the East River to Second Avenue, 52nd Street to 59th Street.
Sutton Place in the East Fifties is quite the retreat from bustling Midtown Manhattan — a stretch of elegant prewar co-ops and townhouses, this is where Marilyn Monroe and Lauren Bacall rented their penthouse in How to Marry a Millionaire. Running parallel to First Avenue, Sutton Place (which is called Sutton Place South below 57th Street) has some wonderful prewar apartment buildings with grand river views. This tiny area has some green too, with two parks located just five blocks from each other.
