In the heart of historic Carnegie Hill just off Park Avenue, this lovely 4-story townhouse is centered in a row of nine Neo-Grec brownstones, built in 1878-79 by the architect F.S. Barus. The entrance on the ground floor leads to an eat-in "country" kitchen with fireplace, and French doors which open on to a walled garden. The property is surrounded by similar townhouses and gardens, creating a peaceful oasis for dining and relaxing. The stairs lead up to the magnificent Parlor Floor with a center hall situated elegantly between a light, airy living room and a warm, paneled library. Offering superb flow for entertaining and living, this floor has tall, elegant windows with shutters, soaring 11' ceilings, hardwood floors, and period fireplaces. The library overlooks 94th Street, and the living room enjoys lovely views over neighboring townhouses and their gardens. The third and fourth floors contain four full-sized bedrooms, three fireplaces, three bathrooms, and a photographic "dark" room (allowing space for an enlarged bathroom or laundry room). The house has been occupied and cared for by the same family for over 40 years, and any renovations took place in the 1980s. Carnegie Hill, a well-loved residential neighborhood on the Upper East Side, is known for its close proximity to Museum Mile, Central Park, great restaurants, boutique shops, and popular schools.

Uptown on the East Side, from 86th Street to 96th Street and from Lexington Avenue to Central Park.
The Carnegie Hill section of Manhattan, full of magnificient townhouses that are rarely for sale because their owners tend to hang on to them, has wonderful access to Central Park. Larger buildings house prewar apartments of six or seven rooms, known as “Classic Sixes” and “Classic Sevens,” but the light in the area is generous as even these magnificient co-ops are usually not too tall. The resulting old-world feel, which bathes even modern condos in Carnegie Hill, shows you why steel tycoon Andrew Carnegie picked this quiet, countrified section of Manhattan as the place to build his ultimate family home. (You can still visit it today on your way to buy or rent an apartment — it’s now a branch of the Smithsonian known as the Cooper-Hewitt museum.)
