Live a Connecticut Lifestyle in Lenox Hill for $29 Million
Upper East Side, Manhattan
🛏 6 bed 🛁 9 bath
If you spend your subway rides dreaming of escaping the city and horseback riding on a farm in Connecticut, maybe you can pause your escape from the city by moving into this Upper East Side townhouse that is brimming with classic country style.
From the moment you set foot inside the black-and-white marble foyer, you'll feel like you've stepped off of 71st Street and into a Gilded Age mansion along the north coast of Long Island. This building was built in the 1910s, so the resemblance goes deeper than vintage decorations.
When 106 East 71st listed at a similar price in 2010, it had recently been converted back into an entire 10,000 square-foot, 17 room single-family residence after having been carved into two apartments.
It's filled with large, private spaces thanks to 25 foot wide rooms spaced across six floors, a garden level, a basement, and outdoor spaces. There are a few separate staircases connecting floors, but also a central spiral staircase that runs the entire six-floor height of the living area and a small elevator accessible from any floor.
The outdoor space is quite spectacular, with a back yard, a small rear terrace, and a larger patio facing the street on the sixth floor. Thankfully, the larger buildings on each side of the smaller townhouse do not block the views from the patio, but it loses some intimacy with surrounding buildings looking down on your space.
Two blocks from Central Park and three blocks from both the 4/6 and Q/R Trains.
