Located on the coveted Gold Coast and just off of Fifth Avenue this house is situated on land which was once part of the Wouter Van Twiller farm established in 1638. In 1745 it was granted to Admiral Sir Peter Warren by the City of New York in recognition of his capture of the French Fort Louisbourg, during the French-Indian War. The house was built in 1842 by Andrew Lockwood, the master builder of West 11th Street. It is characteristic of Lockwood's houses, combining elements of both Federal and Greek Revival periods. The first occupant was Samuel E. Bourne, ship's captain. This four-story single family townhouse boasts 5 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, 6 wood-burning fireplaces and a stunning south-facing landscaped garden with it's own fountain. This home was originally built as one of a pair in 1842 and has been patiently restored and preserved.
