There are few opportunities to create a 40-ft wide majestic residence reminiscent of the golden era when the most prominent New Yorkers like the Fricks, Vanderbilts, Carnegies & Roosevelts built palatial homes in what was then an up and coming neighborhood...the Upper East Side. In 1928, Beekman Winthrop commissioned architect Julius Geyler who created this masterful residence. This neo-Georgian mansion still exhibits the original regal red brick facade, a stone entrance portico with Ionic columns & Doric piers supporting a full entablature. The first & third floor windows feature multi-panel sash, splayed lintels and keystones. The second level windows are round-arched with keystones & iron guard rails. At the very top is the slate mansard roof with four dormers. In 1951, it was purchased by The New York Pharmaceutical Society and was converted into lecture rooms and offices. In 1977, Jim Henson acquired the building and together with Warren Hansen and architect Peter Strauss renovated it to house who would be the most renowned residents of all...Kermit the Frog & the Muppets. The house awaits a special purchaser who desires to undertake a restoration befitting its history, marrying it with the best of 21st century technology. It can also be appropriate for an institution or school. With over 12,000sf, 10'-13'6" ceilings, massive windows, elevator & original details, all you need is a good architect, an astute engineer and the courage to imagine. Co-exclusive.

Additional features of this building include: Commercial Grade Steel & Concrete Construction, Steel & Concrete Circular Staircase, Beautiful Backyard, and Sun-filled Rooms.
