Carnegie Hill Townhouse 1 Block from Met
6 BR, 7.5 BA
This elegant Carnegie Hill townhouse is located on a prime block between Madison and Park Avenues, within easy reach of the Met and Central Park. Built in the Beaux Arts style in 1910, this approximately. 6,500-sq.ft. home features a grandly proportioned parlor floor with light-filled southern views, 6 beds, 7.5 bathrooms, 5 wood-burning fireplaces, an elevator connecting all floors (including the basement) and a separate ramped service entrance at the street level.Three outdoor spaces complement this townhome's spacious interior dimensions: a garden on the first level, a terrace off the 4th floor bedroom and a generous roof terrace with expansive city views all the way to 57th Street and beyond. A one family home for all of its existence (and former home/art carousel of the renown Coe Kerr family), this townhouse retains charming neoclassical info and a sense of flow and proportion which has been lost in many townhouses which were converted to multi-family use.This property is zoned C5-1/MP, which indicates that 1 or more floors could be used for an art carousel or office (subject to confirmation by buyer's zoning expert). Air rights could also potentially permit the addition of a penthouse if desired (again, subject to confirmation by buyer's zoning expert).
