Built in 1890, this 20 ft-wide, four story brownstone, in excellent condition, is located on the south side of 81st Street, an attractive, tree-lined street on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. With its own beautifully landscaped garden, the townhouse backs onto the townhouse gardens of East 81st and 80th Streets which create an extensive, leafy enclave of plantings and trees. The south-facing rooms have a pleasing country-like view. The entire house has two-zoned central air conditioning.

The ground floor consists of a self-contained studio and full bathroom at the front of the house; and a bright, 18'x18' eat-in kitchen at the rear. The kitchen has a large island and a family dining area. Beautiful, glass-paned double doors lead to the garden.

Separate kitchen stairs lead up to the parlor floor, which consists of an elegant and spacious, 18 x 30 living room at the front; and a dining room overlooking the garden with its own serving kitchen, at the rear. Both have 12 ft ceilings and original hardwood floors.

On the third floor, the master bedroom suite consists of a south-facing bedroom, with elegant French doors onto a Juliet balcony overlooking the gardens; and a library/den at the front with interconnecting bathroom with two sinks. Both have 10 ft ceilings. A small additional room on the front is used as a dressing room but could serve as an extra small bedroom.

There are two additional master bedrooms (originally four bedrooms) with 10 ft ceilings on the fourth floor along with two full bathrooms.

The basement is full height and contains laundry, storage and mechanicals.

Within the immediate neighborhood, there is everything you could possibly need in the way of local services with both regular and gourmet food shops; as well as a myriad of local and destination restaurants. Public transportation is a couple of blocks away - in particular, the Lexington Avenue and the new Second Avenue subway as well as buses on Third and Lexington Avenues.
