Property Description

128 East 38th Street is a gut-rehabbed and renovated luxurious 4-story townhouse (plus a finished lower level) with a private elevator on a quiet residential block between Park Avenue and Lexington Avenue.

This 20wide, single-family home was originally built in 1868-1869 by architects D. & J. Jardine and developer Abraham B. Embury as one in a row of five similar, Second Empire-style brownstone dwellings on the East 38th Street. The present brick faade, with the pedimented entryway, and first-story oriel bay window was incorporated by 2001. The current owner/builder has reimagined and designed the open layout for the modern purchasers. The refined interior that was gut renovated and thoughtfully redone to perfection took more than 2 years, completed in 2020, featuring the premium HUNTER DOUGLAS automatic light-diffusing sheers and shadings on all windows, luxury customized HENRYBUILT accent grey walnut cabinets, wardrobes and vanities, SOTA wide-plank white oak floors, new central A/C and heat, new plumbing with water filter system, new electric system, new NEST smart home system, and 3 working marble fireplaces throughout the entire residence.

Upon entry, a gracious foyer adorned with a custom HENRYBUILT floating entry closet for coats and shoes, leads to an open dining room and chefs kitchen reflecting the high-quality craftsmanship of HENRYBUILT custom cabinets with dark smoke metal pull and drawers designed for storage of dinnerware and utensils. The integrated kitchen features the Arctic white marble backsplash, onyx PaperStone countertop, Miele stainless steel four-burner Cooktop, vented hood, Miele 24 built-in Microwave Oven, Miele 24 Electric Steam oven, Miele 18 Dishwasher, 30 Sub-Zero refrigerator and freezer. You will also find a powder room on this floor to convenient your guests.

The Parlor floor offers double exposures, 108 ceiling height, a step-out balcony overlooking the residentials courtyard, the spacious living, entertaining, and lounging areas, to complete with a wet bar and a modern sleek marble wood fireplace.

The Third floor is currently used as the office/dressing, with a wall of floor-to-ceiling custom built-in wardrobes by HENRYBUILT. The room can be converted into a bedroom with the existing full bathroom in the rear corner, or simply to be combined with the Fourth floor as a grand primary duplex.

The Fourth floor is highlighted by 17 windows including 7 large skylights, bringing in tremendous natural light into the full-floor primary suite, with an extensive wall of custom built-in hanging shelves/bins and towel rack. The primary bathroom features a Porcelanosa deep soaking tub, glass-enclosed shower, custom vanity by HENRYBUILT and DURAVIT. The beautiful steel caracol (spiral stairs) ascends to the private roof deck where one can enjoy the precious skyline views of Chrysler and Empire State buildings.


The finished cellar, which provides the 3rd full bathroom in the house, two bay windows and a separate staircase to the street level, offers versatility to be utilized as a staff room/gym/recreation room. It also includes laundry with Samsung smart Flex Washer, vented Flex Dryer (with steam drawer to steam away wrinkles, odors and bacteria) and LG Steam Clothing Care. An additional large, 100 square foot storage space is included separate from the home under the sidewalk.

Located in the Murray Hill Historic District, 128 East 38th Street is on a tree-lined street between Lexington and Park Avenues, steps from some of the top restaurants in NYC, famous landmarks such as the Morgan Library, Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, and a very short distance from the United Nations, One Vanderbilt and Grand Central Station.
Dimensions and square footage are approximate. Buyer to independently verify.
