Built in 1883 by renowned New York architects Arthur M. Thom and James W. Wilson, this 20-foot wide, Neo-Federal Townhouse was the longtime home of Stanly Adams Sweet, a prominent New York businessman. This single family house is located on one of the most beautiful and quiet Upper East Side blocks, moments from the Metropolitan Museum of Art and Central Park.

It is an expansive 6,840 square-foot home, with a spacious layout. On entering through the double set of wrought iron doors, one arrives in the generous entrance hall. Ahead is the light-filled kitchen, which overlooks the landscaped garden. The remarkably high ceilings and oversized windows allow natural light to flood in from both front and back. The graceful central staircase brings you up to the elegant parlor floor, a sprawling drawing room and dining room, both with a wood burning fireplace. Each of the six generous bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms, beautifully detailed with different types of marble. Additionally, there are two south facing terraces, a full basement, and a full-service elevator.

Every inch of this home reflects the carefully considered renovation that was completed in 2000 by David Kleinberg and Taconic builders. The current owners purchased the house in 2010 and redecorated it with London based designer Veere Grenney. Since then the house has been impeccably maintained.
