This classic five-story single family brownstone home is situated on one of the East Side's most admired tree-lined townhouse blocks between Park and Lexington Avenues. It is an historic and exceptional single-family residence located within the landmark-designated Upper East Side Historic District. 126 East 78th Street was built in 1866 and renovated in the 1920's when the top floor was added. There are five full floors plus full semi-finished basement totaling 11 rooms including: living room, dining room, library, 6 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, 1 half bathroom, and a generous private landscaped backyard garden with large stone tiles. This very private and lovely garden is off the dining room and is perfect for entertaining or quiet respite.
Living Room
This historic home features many of the original elements: the Italianate façade is completely preserved and intact. The original winding staircase leads from the kitchen to the fourth floor and is complete with its elegant wood banister. There are original moldings throughout, which are particularly distinctive on the parlor floor and in the library. There are 5 original fireplaces. The entry foyer on the parlor floor showcases the original hardwood floors and large carved wood doors. The current owner raised a family here and lovingly cared for this home for over 45 years.
