Property Description

The grand limestone townhouse known as 7 East 88th Street is ideally located on a prime Carnegie Hill block situated steps from Fifth Avenue and Central Park. Standing just off the stretch of Museum Mile that is home to the world famous Guggenheim Museum, 7 East 88th Street is in close proximity to some of New York City's most noteworthy museums and fine arts institutions as well as top-tier stores and restaurants on Madison Avenue. Built in 1903 to designs by the architectural firm Turner and Killian, 7 East 88th Street boasts just under 25' of width and five stories plus an English basement. The elegant Beaux-Arts style façade is architecturally distinct from its neighbors at 5 and 9 and features a central entrance portico with paneled columns on both sides, an impressive two-story oriel that projects from the floors above and is crowned by two dormer windows on the top floor. The grandeur of this home is enhanced by an expansive interior. The center entry foyer opens to an impressive main staircase accompanied by an elevator that services all floors. The rooms are generously proportioned and are made even more impressive by excellent ceiling heights, particularly on the parlor floor where they are over 12'. The combination of oversized windows, a central skylight and a solarium allows ample sunlight into this townhouse. Additionally there is a lovely garden and a roof deck, both offering a private alternative to Central Park as a way to enjoy the city's outdoors. Currently configured as two triplex and two simplex apartments, this grandly scaled house is an excellent opportunity to create a trophy property, a pied-à-terre or to live with income in a distinguished, historic property in one of Manhattan's finest neighborhoods.
